[20:21] Building Community Via iTunes Reviews

Jeff Brown Input: What is a way you've maximized iTunes ratings and reviews that you'd recommend others consider?
Mathew Passy The best way I have seen someone maximize their use of ratings and reviews is Dan Cummins Timesuck Podcast. For every 100 reviews posted, he releases a special bonus episode and he lets the fans vote on the topic. Reviews pour into the show and he reads a few in the show update. It has helped him build a huge bank of reviews, which while having no impact on your ranking, do let people know whether or not you produce a quality product. It has also helped him to build a huge community with real engagement. I think it's a fascinating idea. Won't work for every type of podcast but I think this was one integral piece in his show's early success.
