Monthly update for November 2020
Listen Score part 2 & new landing pages
This is the 38th full month (3 YEARS and 2 months) that I worked on Listen Notes full-time. Hope you are doing well and staying safe!
1, Some followup development with Listen Score, a metric that shows the estimated popularity of a podcast compared to all other rss-based public podcasts in the world on a scale from 0 to 100. For example, added Listen Score to API response data.
2, Some infra improvements, e.g., upgrade a few EC2 instances, thanks to traffic growth. First time to sell old reserved instances on AWS marketplace :)
3, New pricing for Premium Membership. btw, ProfitWell has some great resources on pricing.
4, Added a data fields page: https://www.listennotes.com/datasets/fields/
6, Changed default sort order of episodes on a podcast page to “Oldest to Newest” for “serial”-type podcast.
7, New landing page for Listen Later playlists: https://www.listennotes.com/listen/
Posted Listen API to Hacker News and randomly got on the front page :)
Marketing is so nondeterministic!
