Private Show Sharing: a new way to create exclusive content and make $!

Choose who to share your podcast with

We launched Private Episode Sharing to offer our users maximum publishing flexibility and the chance to develop their podcast business model. Following the release, we received several requests from our podcasters to extend the feature to whole shows which is why we are excited to announce the arrival of Private Show Sharing!

Why is this great for you?

Private Episode Sharing allows users to offer exclusive content to loyal listeners or create paywall episodes in exchange for a service. Private Show Sharing instead allows podcasters to take this to the next level and create a fully functioning business from their podcast by introducing two new visibility options for your shows: Private and Limited Access. The really great part is that limited access shows are available to your listeners on both mobile and web devices, making it ideal for remote distribution.

Monetize Your Premium Content

Now, instead of needing to manage the administration of individual episodes sales, podcasters can sell complete courses, releasing different seasons for different course levels. For example, say you’re a language teacher, series 1, could be your intro course, selling a course of 10 episodes, series 2 would be for beginners and so on – each one with its own price model. It’s a clear, simple way for you to use podcasting to sell your product.  

Connect With Your Staff

Another way you could use this feature is if you wanted to share sensitive information within your business. A private company podcast is an easy way of keeping staff informed of business changes and need-to-know info, while making sure it always stays internal. 

Thank Your Listeners

If you’ve got some listeners who you want to thank for their continued support, why not share with them an exclusive podcast? It’s a really simple way to make them feel extra special. You could even add an embedded player with the show to a page where you control the access – don’t forget our player is supported by loads of platforms including Patreon and Change.org.

Archive Your Best Work

If you have a show which you don’t want to share publicly, we’ll keep it safe for you. Store a show on Spreaker for your own personal archive – you can revisit it and make it public whenever you want!

Start using Private Show Sharing

Private Show Sharing is available to all Broadcaster Plans and above. Free and On-Air Talent users will need to upgrade to access the feature. 

To access your private show link, you’ll find the URL via your CMS. From the CMS, choose the show you want to share privately and select it. In the show’s settings you’ll be able to edit its ‘Visibility’, changing it to ‘Limited Access’ and then a new link will appear which you can copy and paste anywhere.

Not on a Broadcaster plan or above and want to give this feature a try? Upgrade Now!

    Is it true that turning on Limited Access would disable the RSS feed?

    We have a Patreon-only feed (that is technically discover able if someone tried hard enough). We want to make the feed private (link or invite only), but we want it to continue acting as a feed in their podcast app of choice.

      Yes, true. Anyway, you can embed the Spreaker Embedded Player on Patreon instead of using the feed.
      For a “private feed” feature, just stay tuned 🙂

    Question about the “Limited Access” link that is created by changing the visibility.
    Do you have instructions on now to make it a “paywall”? Seems that this link can be shared readily by copy and paste? Im new to this idea and any details someone can provide would be great, I like the idea of broadcasting to my business employees and keeping it private with a password or something.

    • Sergio La Rosa Aug 29, 2019 at 10:28 am

      It can be shared with copy and paste, yes. You can also use the Spreaker embedded player and put the player in a page that is accessible only to a select audience that you set on your blog or website. If you need further information, just contact us at support@spreaker.com 🙂
