Make A Request Feature On Anchor - A Great Way To Encourage!
When you record an audio clip in the app it stays live in your station for 24 hours. When you visit a station and there has not been any new audio clips recorded or submitted in the last 24 hours then the station includes a small icon that says "Station Is Off Air."
You will also see a "Make A Request" button option in the middle of the display. Click on it to create a notification to the member that you are requesting new content. You have the option of leaving a comment or not. It's nice to leave a comment such as "I look forward to hearing more of your Anchor voice!"
After you hit "Done" the request is delivered. The next time a member goes into the app your request will be included in the notifications screen and actually as a message when they first open the app. It's a great way to stay connected and encourage other members.
Below is a short audio overview saved as a podcast episode. It includes a Call In from Dustin who I sent a request to. I noticed he was a new member who hadn't created an audio post yet and I wanted to connect. I also added in my comment "Please call in to me when you publish." I did a brief Call-in to him welcoming him to Anchor. I also used the My "Make A Request" feature which was actually the nudge that Dustin needed to record and publish his first Anchor clip.
Let me know if you have any follow up questions with a comment to this post or with a Call in to my Anchor station Anchor.fm/AnchorTalk - Anchor Talk - Dr. Dan Davidson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
