What EXACTLY do you need to appear in iTunes' New & Noteworthy?

I know it's relative to everyone else's subscriptions, downloads, and reviews, but do you have any hard numbers on what worked for you?

The Main page N&N and the Comedy Page N&N are 100% human picked.  The other sections are a mix of human / cyborg relations.

Don’t worry about pursuing love, status and luxury. Better to have a community of good friends, work for yourself, and spend part of each day thinking. -Epicurus

Thought I'd share this recent post with you guys. It's short and sweet.

Let me ask you something: Do you want to be the best?

I don't mean like Highlander--you won't have to decapitate anyone. But do you want to be in the top 5% of the industry? The people who get called to work on area tours and the Cirque Du Soleil?

To get to that level, you've got to be good; you've got to be better than good. To be better than good, you've got to be out there working the field, mastering your craft. And the only way you can be out there mastering your craft is if you have a steady stream of jobs and clients.

You have to have experience in order to get the work that will give you the experience you need to get work. It's a Catch-22.

Fortunately, you don't have to solve the puzzle alone. You can join me and 29 focused peers who are out there figuring out what works (and what doesn't) in the pro audio world, and openly sharing their experience.

Try out Pro Audio Business Blueprint for 30 days free and start paving your way into the top 5% of the industry.

Thanks everyone for the responses. I've finished the infographic, but I'm going to leave the poll open.

One of the keys to getting booked solid is to build great client relationships. Customer relationship management apps like Contactually and Streak can help you streamline and automate the process. Then you can work on it a little bit every week, instead of freaking out and calling everyone the next time you need gigs.

Did you know that you can try Pro Audio Business Blueprint for 30 days, for free?

I know it can feel strange and scary to invest in yourself and your business, especially if you've never done it before, which is why I want you to give my program a test run before you commit. Even if you decide not to complete the entire six months, you will still get valuable information out of the time you do spend with us, and it will help you improve your life.

Introduction
I'm launching a new service to help you setup a podcast for your business. It's called Podcast Marketing.

---
I am a recovering sound engineer. 

I used to really hate my job. I know working on concerts, theatre, and recordings sounds like a fun fancy job, but a lot of people get into it for the wrong reasons and get burned out. Through a lot of moving around and trial and error I have come to really love being a sound engineer.

If you or someone you know is working in audio, but struggling to get the kinds of jobs, clients, or money that they want, I hope you'll think of me because I love to help people find their best fit in pro audio and create a fulfilling career that they can be proud of.
