Melissa Monte is one of today’s most influential and thought-provoking explorers of the mindset, and positive energy. She’s known for her ability to explain complex ideas with humor and clarity, in a way that deeply connects with a wide audience.
On her popular, heartfelt podcast “Mind Love,” she discusses mindset shifts, energy frequencies and exploring the human condition through raw stories, personal experience and inspiring interviews.
When was just starting out with her podcast, Melissa was looking for a simple and beautiful way to showcase her podcast on her website. She knew she wanted to create an engaging online experience for her website visitors with a player that could show her full catalog, as well as the ability to display a single episode.
“I have really high expectations for the standards of beauty for anything I put out online. Personally, the chances of me listening to a podcast with poorly designed cover art or perusing a website with a bad user experience is slim to none.”
So, trying to find a great podcast player that offered her the functionality she wanted as well as her design expectations proved to be almost impossible.
Then, she heard Pat Flynn recommend Fusebox (at that time called Smart Podcast Player) and decided to check it out.
“Generally, if Pat recommends something, I know it’s something I should consider. He and his team put such care in the products and information they put out online that I knew I couldn’t go wrong.”
Right away she could tell that Fusebox was truly designed for podcasters. It had everything she wanted to offer her audience in a simple tool that was simple, easy-to-use, and beautiful.
“I was easily able to make [Fusebox] fit my branding, and it has options for all of my needs. I can create a full podcast player, which I use on my general podcast page. This way visitors can quickly and easily search all my available episodes without leaving the page.
Fusebox also lets me insert a single track for my show notes pages. And I can insert a track player that automatically plays my latest episode without me ever having to update it. Overall it’s a win/win for both them and me.”
But while the design and features were nice, the real question is this – did Fusebox actually help her grow her podcast?
Melissa says yes!
At the end of the day, that’s what really matters, especially for bootstrapped podcasters like Melissa. She couldn’t afford to invest in a tool that wouldn’t make a difference for her podcast.
“I’ve grown my show from zero audience to being on track for 100,000 downloads this month alone in just 6 months! I attribute this to the attention to detail in every area of my content, and the Fusebox Player is one of those details.
My main goal is obviously to get more subscribers. The Fusebox player helps me with this by reducing the friction between the call to action and visitors actually taking that action. The “Subscribe” button is right there on the player which makes it easy for new listeners to sign-up and join my audience right from my website.
I’ve also gotten a lot of feedback from my listeners on the ease and beauty of my website and since Fusebox is front and center on all my show notes pages, I give a lot of credit to that.”
