Update to Show Feature Request Process

Thank you for all of the feedback on the new process for submitting your show to be featured on BlogTalkRadio.  We took it to heart and have made an update to make it easier for you to upload your images. Now, our system will help you to crop the image to the perfect size without you having to do it on our own computer.  With the new cropping window, you can move the selection box anywhere on your picture or expand it to include more area of the picture and it will automatically fit our upload limits.  Give it a whirl and submit your show today:

1.    Click on “My Account” in your dropdown menu.

2.    Click on “Feature my show” under “My BlogTalkRadio”

3.    In the “Feature my show” tab, fill out the necessary info at the bottom of the form.

4.    Click “Submit”

The Features Request Form is born!

Today we have released a new form which will simplify the Featuring process on BlogTalkRadio.

You can find the form when you login and hit the “Promote” tab under “Features Requests.” Or click here.

The form allows hosts to select a segment, describe why it should be featured, input guest information, insert weblinks to promotional materials, and upload photos all in one form.

With this easy-to-use form, you can request to be featured in a few different ways.

  1. Featured On the Homepage scrollbar (upcoming)
  2. Featured in Category (archive)
  3. Considered a Featured Host
  4. Request a segment to consider for Best of BTR

With all these different types of Features Requests in one place, it will be much easier for hosts to submit information directly from their segments, and easier for BlogTalkRadio to keep track and process your requests.

Please check out the form, and try it out! The form has fields for detailed information, but not all fields are required to submit. When you have submitted the information successfully, you will receive a message confirming receipt of your request. Its simple and cuts down on the (digital) paper trail of sending multiple emails.

The Features and Promotion team will always be available at hostpr@blogtalkradio.com to assist, answer questions, and read schedules you are working on. The Features requests, however, will have to be submitted through this form in order to be processed. You’ll have time to transition, but if you try the form, you’ll want to switch right away!

As always, since BlogTalkRadio is a live network, featuring decisions are made according to requests received and daily content. For this reason, BlogTalkRadio is unable to confirm featured slots in advance. Featured spots are limited and BlogTalkRadio has sole discretion about promotion and feature status.

Thanks for hosting in our BlogTalkRadio community! Please email us if you have further questions.
