"Set up to fail"

Pros

1. Inexpensive way to create and host a podcast if you can't afford your own equipment.
2. Customer service is prompt...on certain issues.
3. Site is well designed and relatively easy to use.
4. Ability to connect with social media through the site is good.

Cons

!. Overpriced with limited and inflexible account options
2. Metrics are unreliable and inaccurate at best.
3. Self serving business model.
4. No promotional support such as offering websites or apps to promote your show (like LibSyn does).

Summary

BTR's business model is simple, you create a podcast, you bust your butt trying to promote it and they reap all the profits from selling ad space on their site based on the numbers that YOU bring in. For $40 a month you get below average sound quality, unreliable and inaccurate metrics (one of my shows got 63 listens overnight but the next day it mysteriously dropped to 48. I emailed them about it but they never got back to me) and other than social media connections you get nothing in terms of promotional support. I still have no idea what I'm paying for other than to make them a bit richer. About a year ago their overall numbers went straight off a cliff. They lost a significant number of their most popular shows and there were complaints everywhere from the other users. BTR's response was to blame the hosts for not promoting their shows effectively enough. Still their numbers remain intolerably low with no sign of improving. Since I became a member in Feb. 2013 I've paid almost $800 to them. For that money I could've bought my own equipment and hosted my show on LibSyn for half of what I pay now and gotten much better results. I can't wait to rid myself of this company. Total waste of money and time.
