They have it as http://showname.blip.tv/rss/itunes. I don't go straight from Blip to iTunes any more though. When I asked 2 weeks ago why iTunes wasn't linking directly to my site, Blip said I should go through Feedburner so Blip actually set it all up to pass from Blip through Feedburner to iTunes.
After concluding this change has to come from their end, I emailed them again. They usually reply by email within 24 hours but it's been about 30 and I think they're ignoring my request to fix this issue, leaving me stranded. I know they don't have a policy forcing people to link their iTunes to Blip b/c I've seen too many examples, like you, who link to their own sites. So I can't figure this out! Any idea where to turn?
I'm a big supporter of Blip.tv'smodel, we're content creators (those of us on this site ) and simply we have to find a way to monetize our series. They are perhaps one of the most simplest sites for a producer to begin doing such.
Yes, Blip.tv is a small company, while they are slow at implementing their changes, they are none the less doing so. YouTube's current model does not support "original" content producers. If you spend $x.xx to produce your show and make zero dollars on 20,000 views, wow... that equals a major financial dissapppointment.
We can not ignore how YouTube can help us grow our series, but they have to become more friendly to the original content creators.
You can also find other sites to monetize but the prerolls are going to earn the same amount of money so I wouldn't count on that to pay you back.
My suggestion is to be sure to have your videos on Youtube tagged, and have links to YOUR site in the description along with even annotating with hot links to come join your email list or see more material on your site (even if it's on YouTube)....
Get them to your site, if they like you - they will like your FB page etc...and you can even have a store on the site with items they can buy on demand using Zazzle etc... either way you want to capture them for future episodes and maybe while on your site you can monetize them by them watching your series again or in full...
Start thinking about the tools that are on the site. I get 38% of viewers finding my content through search on YouTube... imagine that????
I love Blip for this sole reason - One click and your video is pushed out to a crap load of sites... It's a great tool to help spread your videos and definitely one to have in your arsenal.
