When Hack Learning Podcast host Mark Barnes discussed building a tribe of like-minded people to help you grow professionally, he focused on the Twitter hashtag.

In this edition of Hack Learning 101, Mark provides another powerful under-two-minute lesson for tribe building, using the voice recording app, Voxer.

    Hey Owen, Thanks for reading and engaging. Once you open the Voxer link in a web browser (you can use the web version and find it under “Share” and “share message,” or you can air drop or email it to yourself on the mobile app), you’ll see an “Embed” button. When you click it, you’ll see an iFrame code that you can paste into your WordPress or other blog. Hope this helps.

    I can’t figure out how to do this. I copied your embed code, I swapped the link to your vox and put in a link to my vox, but when I publish, it just looks like text, no player appears. Any ideas?

    I tried adding a Custom Functions plugin and got some PHP code snippet to add, but I can’t figure out where to add it.

    When you wrote up your blog post, did you add the iFrame in the HTML area or just text editor?
