A Complete Guide to Adding the Perfect Music and Sound Effects to Your Podcast

0

Music and sound are a simple yet effective way to help create an even more engaging podcast for your listeners. Using music in podcasts has the ability to define your show’s tone, make it instantly recognizable and are an effective way to create a heightened audio experience for your audience. With this in mind, we want to look at the ways different podcasters have used music and sound throughout their content with serious impact.

MUSIC: Where’s best to add it?

As a podcaster, you have three options of where to add music, at the beginning or end as a sort of title/credits music, to divide show segments and as interview background music.

  • Intro / Outro

Your podcast intro is the most important audio element you’ll ever create for your podcast; it’s the first thing potential new listeners hear. The first thing to consider is that your intro, or pre-roll, should be made with your audience at the forefront of your mind – making sure to immediately communicate just what your show’s about.

Forbes underlines its importance: “It’s the first piece of audio that the listener is going to hear, so it’s important to solidify a distinct mood and sound to represent that particular podcast show or song.”

Distributing your podcast is easier than ever before.

0

Our goal is to create the best all-in-one podcast creation app, one which is portable, flexible and works for every level of podcasters.
This year we’ve made two further steps towards achieving this goal: in February we announced our first post-production feature, allowing iOS users to edit while on-the-go, and in January we added a new navigation bar, giving users clear access to their episodes drafts, previous episodes, and stats.
Continuing this mission of creating an app tailored to podcasters’ needs, we’re super excited to announce the launch of a new update.

Be ready to enjoy our one-tap podcast distribution feature, a function we know will help to remove some of the complications and fuss out of creating a podcast!

Podcaster Communities: A Data-Driven Insight

Podcaster Communities: A Data-Driven Insight

One of the keys to successful podcasting is finding a support network of other like-minded individuals who are on the same journey. Communities of podcasters provide a great way of filling this need through knowledge exchange and offering inspiration and moral support to one another. That’s why many podcaster communities were started and continue to flourish both online and offline around the world.

Several articles have previously been written about podcaster communities but never before has an in-depth study been carried out, providing a more comprehensive overview of the overall landscape. That’s why at Spreaker we recently decided to survey community organizers, gathering information on podcaster communities that are currently active. In this post, we will look at some of the main conclusions of our study.

Top Tricks for Promoting Your Podcast With Instagram

0

Creating engaging content for your podcast should always be your main driving force but never forget the importance of social media!
It is such a fundamental tactic for growing your audience that we wanted to give you the tools to create a strategy for promoting your podcast on Instagram!

Users are changing, attention spans are decreasing, and more people are getting their content via mobile – that’s why having another touch point to your listeners can only help you and your show.

So, let’s look at how to use Instagram promotion and how to use it to the best of its (and your) ability!

How to Get Follows Via Your Bio

It’s the first thing that any potential podcast fan will see/read about you and your show and you’ve got just 150 characters to get them interested.
How do you promote on Instagram with your bio, in a smart way?
Apart from being THE place to summarize what you’re about – it’s also where you should provide users with a link to your show (driving traffic to your podcast) and your program’s unique hashtag (helping your searchability).
Our top advice is: use bitly
 to shorten your episode links and get some basic analytics or use many.link to provide users with just one link which will lead them to every platform your podcast is on, your newsletter and website!

And, remember to update your link every time you upload a new episode, that way your followers will know to keep checking back for new content.
