Podcasting Tips

Keep Your Audience Engaged with a Mobile App

0

Podcasting has never been a one-sided affair – your content was made for an audience that could listen in and fully engage with it. Once you hit publish, your focus shifts from your own content to those out there waiting for you, and that includes reaching new listeners as well as those that have been there all along.

A customized Mobile App dedicated to your show is a great way to distribute your podcast out to listeners, get them hooked, and keep them coming back. While it’s important to spread your content through as many channels as possible, you don’t want your relationship with your audience to spread thin. A Mobile App bridges that gap between you and them and keeps things direct; your listeners download the app that you branded and created yourself, and your content gets to their ears in no time.

But when your podcasting to-do list is already inundated with different tasks – mixing, editing, uploading, describing, tagging – some of the process risks falling by the wayside.

That’s why we’ve been focusing so much on the new CMS, to offer you a dashboard full of quality tools and features to help you every step of the way. Today, we’re eager to show you the newest addition: the ability to auto-share “camera-ready” episodes to all your social networks.

Here’s what we mean:

First impressions count, there’s no denying it. And, although people always say to never judge a book by its cover – they inevitably do, especially when it comes to podcasts.

Luckily there are some handy (and easy-to-follow) tricks you can employ which will immediately help your visuals – we’ve listed 9 of the most important in this written tutorial.
