Listening to podcasts is becoming increasingly popular, with more and more people turning to them for their fix of series to binge on. In The Infinite Dial’s latest report, 24% of Americans said that they had listened to a podcast in the last month – a staggering number.
The rising interest in podcasts, is down to a combination of factors: celebrities using them to express their opinions, TV comedy shows being based around the medium and hit podcasts grabbing the attention of the masses. All of this is great news for podcasting, and what better way to reach this new market of listeners than Spotify?
With over 157 million users of the platform, publishing on the network is a surefire way to reach thousands of new listeners! Which is why we’ve launched the opportunity for all Pro users to be able to submit their podcast to Spotify with just one click when using Spreaker’s Content Management System.
It really is as simple as one click. All you need to do is log on to your account, where you’ll now notice on your dashboard the button for ‘Spotify’, nestled between ‘Ad Options’ and ‘iHeartRadio’. By clicking on that it will take you through to the Spotify ‘homepage’ on our CMS system. If you’re not already a Pro user it will invite you to sign up, if you are, you will see a green ‘SUBMIT’ button.
Simply click the ‘SUBMIT’ button which will turn to ‘PENDING’ and once the podcast’s been approved from our side a little tick will appear on the same landing page, confirming that your podcast has been successfully submitted. Within a few short weeks your podcast will be available for listening and shared wide for all to hear on Spotify! It’s as easy as that, but please be patient.
If you’re looking for a way to give your podcast that extra push, publishing it to Spotify is the perfect opportunity – it will reach a wide audience and hopefully boost your listening figures. Give it a go and see the effect it has on your podcast!
