Podcasting Tips

Promoting Your Podcast with the Spreaker Player



Promoting your podcast can be really hard work.  It takes time sharing to multiple networks and the time you spend sharing can add to the overhead and workflow of producing a quality podcast.

Speaking of promoting your podcast if you missed my last post about Promoting Your Podcast on LinkedIn to Build Authority you should check it out.  It talks about how you can leverage the power of LinkedIn to get more listeners and build a larger following.

It would be amazing if you could get the listeners of your podcast to start promoting your show or make it so easy for them to share they couldn’t resist sharing your podcast with their friends and family.  The great news is the Spreaker player has social sharing built right into the embeddable widget you can use on your own website making the process of sharing your podcast seamless.

One advantage to using the Spreaker player is that when a user shares your podcast to Twitter via one of the embeddable widgets you’ll see a Twitter Card like the one pictured below. The Twitter Card improves the user experience by allowing your listener to consume your podcast right in the Twitter stream.

SpreakerShareThe player is fully functional and doesn’t disrupt the user experience making it more likely they will listen and in turn share your podcast right from Twitter exposing your show to even more potential listeners.

In the video tutorial below I walk you through the entire process step-by-step on how to effectively share your episodes and encourage your listeners to do the same.

Once you’ve watched the video go to your website and add one of the Spreaker player widgets.  Then come back to this post and leave a comment on the difference you’ve seen in how your listeners consume and share your podcast.
