(Last Update: October 22, 2019) At Spreaker we want to give you the best opportunities to make your podcast a huge success, how can we help you do that? By giving you as many tools and features for creating excellent content and facilitating easy podcast distribution.
With Spreaker there are already so many ways for you to personalize your podcasting experience: live stream or pre-record, experiment with music and sound, monetize via our revenue program and now we’ve added a super simple way for you to syndicate your podcast to all the key platforms.
It goes without saying how fundamental good syndication is to a podcast’s success and our fast podcast distribution system gives you the power to choose where to share your podcast, speedily.
Choose from all the major players:
With Apple Podcasts having reached over 50 billion downloads and Spotify gaining an increase in the share of the podcast listening market, your podcast needs to be on these platforms. It’s also worth noting that once a podcast is available on Apple Podcasts it automatically becomes available on other listening platforms such as Breaker, Pocket Casts, Overcast and more.
Our Latest CMS: Easy, Fast Podcast Distribution. Simple.
How to distribute your podcast can often be a headache. To facilitate simple syndication, we’ve redesigned Spreaker’s CMS distribution tools and created a simple and dedicated page for it. There’s no need for you to create a podcast distribution strategy, just select your preferred platforms for where to share. We’ve integrated as many leading destinations as possible to make it fast, while giving you the choice where to be with your podcast.
If you previously had an easy way for submitting to Spotify or iHeartRadio, with one-click distribution we’ve opened up the doors for you. We wanted to give you a podcast directory which clearly presents all your options, without the need to visit individual platform pages or outsource your podcast distribution.
To make for easy podcast syndication, our system will check all the necessary requirements for you to make sure your podcast is good-to-go and our designers have worked hard to make the interface as clear and user-friendly as possible.
Good distribution is now open to everyone – no tech skills needed!
I’m Ready to Distribute – Tell Me More!
Now you know how easy it is, it’s time to get sharing!
- Access Spreaker’s CMS and choose your podcast
- Click on the “Distribution” option from the menu at left
- Select your podcast distribution platform of choice and click ‘submit’ – we’ll do the rest.
While submitting you might notice that each platform has its own submission requirements. For example, you might need to have a certain number of public episodes in your podcast before submitting. No worries though! If there are certain requirements you’re missing, we’ll notify you so there’s no need to troubleshoot on your own.
Also note that some platforms such as Apple Podcasts, require a more manual distribution – this is good as it grants podcasters access and control over their podcast’s distribution via the platform. In any case, don’t worry, whenever the submission process is manual we’ll give you all the instructions on what to do.
Once you’ve submitted your podcast it’s just a matter of waiting for the approval; wait times vary depending on the platform (note it will be available immediately on Spreaker’s website and Spreaker Podcast Radio apps). As soon as your podcast is accepted you’ll be notified by e-mail, but you can always check on the status at any time via the Distribution page itself – to see whether it’s been approved, awaiting approval or rejected. Once your podcast is approved, we’ll provide you with your podcast’s link for each platform.
For those of you out there who have already submitted your podcast to some of the mentioned platforms from another hosting service, you’ll need to follow our instructions for the redirect. Take a look at this page to get started – and if you need any assistance, just contact our Customer Support team.
Just added (on mobile also): Castbox!
The one-tap distribution is also available on the Spreaker Studio apps – and now we’ve added Castbox to the line up there as well! So if you can’t wait to syndicate your podcast there’s no need to wait till you’re home. Just make sure you’ve got the latest version of the App to enjoy the best podcast distribution platform possible.
Stay tuned for more news on distribution – we’re working on adding more platforms to our list so as to create the top podcast directory around. By being heard as much as possible you also have the chance to turn your podcast into profit via our monetization program. The sky’s the limit.
