Introducing Spreaker Studio, our new app for Android!

Studio_Blog_Promo

We’ve punched up our app to include everything you’ve wanted – the ability to add songs and sound effects while you go live, toggle the microphone, and more so that you can take over the entire production of your own podcast or radio show.

Take a look!

Tap on REC to go directly to the console

Push REC at the top and choose to go live or record and then publish later. Make sure to adjust the microphone and switch it to ON to keep it on the entire time your broadcast, or hold down Push to Talk to only record vocals when you need to. Want to play songs? Tap on Add New Song to start pulling songs from your device, and set them on the decks. Play as you go, or choose Auto DJ to let the playlist run on its own. And don’t forget to tap on any of the sound effects on the right to add extra flair to your content.

When going live, you’ll get a chance to set up your track’s info before you go on the air. When recording offline, your track will instead be placed in your Drafts collection as soon as you choose to publish it.

From your Collections, manage your individual collection’s or track’s info. In your Settings you can opt to connect to your social networks, manage your console settings, report an issue to our support team, and much more.

When in doubt, you can also opt to Take the Tour in order to get a refresher on the app’s functions.

Now you have all the tools you need to create and share your original audio creations on your Android device!

And this release will also be marking a change in Spreaker’s apps. Soon you’ll be able to choose between two different apps: one focused on audio creation, and the other on listening. Soon you’ll get two condensed and efficient experiences.

Like the way it sounds? Download Spreaker Studio for Android now and give us your feedback!

Start Podcasting For Your Business

Have you ever thought about podcasting as a tool for your business?

Podcast-RSSPodcasts can help your business grow, and attract brand fanatics. Every minute that a customer listens to us speak with authority we’re establishing ourselves as a thought-leader. Conceptually, the more time our audience spends with our content, the more authority we have as content marketers.

According to the data we published last month, the average time spent listening on Spreaker is about 23 minutes, meaning that your audience will spend on average more time listening to a podcast than readers do reading a blog post. Read More…

Set up multiple shows with your Spreaker account!

Perhaps many of you didn’t know that you can have as many shows as you want on Spreaker with your own account, no matter what plan you’ve chosen.

Having more shows gives you the chance to organize your content by different topics, giving your profile the feel of a real radio channel, with multiple programs that can satisfy the needs of a big audience. Each show has its own URL and RSS feed link that can be distributed to other platforms as well as shared on social media and sites. Read more…

A few weeks ago we introduced the opportunity to set up real and professional Ad Campaigns to run on our site. We know that building your audience is one of the hardest parts to podcasting, but now you can place your own personally-made ads promoting your show throughout the platform!

It’s a great way to showcase your brand and attract new listeners within the community.

Here’s how you can set up your campaign: Continue reading

Infographic: What’s Going on with Your Listeners?

Statistics are extremely important when it comes to really understanding your audience, and it’s why we make sure to always give you updated numbers on how your shows and tracks are doing.

It’s just as important to get the bigger picture, too, so starting this month, we’ll be sharing Spreaker‘s monthly overall stats. We want to be more open with you, plus give you a better feel of the context you’re working within.

Take a look at our eye-popping info graphic, featuring detailed data on overall listening time from streaming sources (download data isn’t available).

It’s Your Choice with the RSS Feed Redirect!

Here at Spreaker, we work hard at bringing you the best service possible, using your feedback as the drive behind improvements and changes.

And it’s thanks to this feedback that we’re now able to bring you an option! Our friends Dave of School of Podcasting and Mike Russell of Music Radio Creative tipped us off on the importance of not feeling locked in to any service, or tricked into staying with a particular platform. Now anyone that doesn’t find Spreaker to be the right fit but already has an active RSS feed going can feel free to redirect their feed to another service’s. Continue reading
