Nearing 2 Million Downloads
Updated on January 16, 2007
I checked the download stats this morning and saw that we're just over 1.6 million downloads of our podcasts with Glimpster. It won't be long before we hit 2 million downloads.
That fact blows my mind.
Once again, our video podcasts are an example of how easy it is to distribute content online. How much would it cost via the old media to distribute shows 1.6 million times? I have no idea what the answer to that is, but my guess is that it's more than we're currently paying.
The web hosting we use at Dreamhost to host the websites is inexpensive and reliable. The bandwidth we get from Libsyn is extremely inexpensive, and we host all the video files there. All together, I think we're spending maybe $50 per month. That's an extremely low price to pay to get content to hundreds of thousands of people.
This is a new world we're living in. Frankly it's a world where your voice can be heard.
