Providing Content to Create Interaction with Your Online Audience

Photo Credit:

Interaction with your online audience is very important. Whether your online presence is strictly catered to business and your online audience is your customer/client base, or you’re a blogger trying to maintain a readership. There are a couple of important things to keep in mind about interacting with your online audience. The most important being to provide them with content. If you don’t engage your online audience, then they will go away.

As you may or may not know, every podcast that has been put out by Alloy Productions in the past (this list includes Alloy Podcast, Bullet Tooth Podcast, Rip City Podcast, the Stephen King Fancast and the Stephen King Movie Club) was hosted through Mevio. Alloy Productions was one of the producers that was largely affected by this “pivot.” What I mean by affected, is that the two years of experience that we have in the podcasting realm, is no longer provable, because those past episodes have been deleted from Mevio’s servers and no longer exist. This one action by Mevio, with no prior warning, has made it virtually impossible for us at Alloy Productions to prove that we have been podcasting for as long as we say we have, as we no longer have a backlog of episodes that we can point people to so they can verify our claims themselves. We will be asking people that we have collaborated with in the past to come to this blog posting and leave a comment saying when they were involved with our project and with which project, in hopes that we can use this posting as some sort of verification of our past podcasting experience.

This will not stop us. The Stephen King Fancast is on a short hiatus, until a new hosting situation is worked out, and the Stephen King Movie Club is now available only as a YouTube show. The rest of our podcasts have been shut down and will remain out of production. This is a trying time for us, but we will move on.

Video: Stephen King Comic Book Club


The Stephen King Fancast, one of the blogs that Alloy Productions helps run, recently started a new segment on their YouTube Channel, the Stephen King Comic Book Club.

We posted about their new vlog segment a while back, and the introduction of the Stephen King Movie Club. They got quite a good reaction from the YouTube platform, and decided to extend that YouTube channel to also encompass comic books. Since Stephen King now has three different comic book series’ in production, they thought the expansion was appropriate.

This is also a great example of how a YouTube channel can drive new readers and subscribers to a blog and drive more Facebook “Likes,” Google+ “Circlers” and/or Twitter “Followers.” Since starting their YouTube channel and adding quality content to that channel, the Stephen King Fancast blog has tripled their Facebook “Likes,” doubled their Google+ “Circlers” and nearly doubled their blog readership. Their tactful use of affiliate links has also seen a small margin of return on the investment as well. We have been assured that the money is being reinvested for a new podcast file hosting service and work on a mobile app for the blog.

Alloy Productions is proud to announce that we are the company that is developing the mobile app for the Stephen King Fancast.

On another note, the Stephen King Fancast is still looking to add contributors to their blog, so if you are a king fan that is interested in blogging, podcasting or vlogging about Stephen King related stuff, you should head over to their blog and look for the “Contributors Wanted” page for more info about how you can get involved!

Alloy Productions would be happy to help you with any of your web presence needs for your band, brand or business! Check out our “Clients” page to see some of our work or contact us via the email at the top, right side of this page or via any of our social networks!

Bullet Tooth Podcast

This is the Official Bullet Tooth Records Podcast

In October of 2010, we contacted Bullet Tooth Records (formerly know as Trustkill Records) about getting on their press list for the Alloy Podcast. We offered to run a label podcast for Bullet Tooth, and the owner was fairly stoked on the idea. Trustkill had a label podcast as well, and it was something he wanted to do with Bullet Tooth, as well. He had us do the project and we still are doing it.

Stephen King Fancast


The Stephen King Fancast is a podcast dedicated to Stephen King and his works. This podcast was started by Matt, because he is a huge Stephen King fan and he couldn’t seem to find a podcast by/for Stephen King that was currently in production. So he decided to make it himself. The podcast has an international listener base, and is only hosted by Matt, his listeners are his co-hosts. He offers to let his listeners Skype in for the discussion segment of the show. Alloy Productions is responsible for the development, launch, production and upkeep of this podcast and all of it’s pages.  This podcast is still in production.
