Driving Your Podcast to the Top of the iTunes Charts (VidSummit 2017 Presentation)

There is a lot to say about the VidSummit event. I can’t say it all here. When I went in 2016, I didn’t expect it to be as great as it was. 2016 was amazing.

I brought a client of mine with me and at the end of the event, she made a suggestion that I actually have people watch this presentation before sending them as clients...
