Spreaker’s All New Revenue Sharing Program

How Full Control of Ad Injection is Revolutionizing Podcast Monetization

Great content has real value: your engagement with your audience is precious. The more you feel empowered and in control of the true value of your podcast, the more you will be able to really give to it and make it thrive. That’s why feeling fully in control of the way your podcast monetizes is important.

Savvy advertisers are already on to the phenomenal potential of audio content and are investing, big time. But there may remain a lingering concern that by accepting ads, you might be ‘handing over reins’ of your episode structure to advertisers. And what kind of money is there to be made, given the potential compromise?

Here at Spreaker, we resolutely believe that you CAN make your podcast steadily and seriously fruitful money-wise, while also keeping full control over your episodes. Earlier this year, we launched our Revenue Sharing program, allowing podcasters to earn money for every listen or impression. We are now delighted to announce that the program has graduated from its beta version, into a fully fledged sophisticated ad revenue system.

Enhance Your Story and Create More Easily Accessible Podcasts with Chapters

0

Ask yourself: how accessible is your podcast? Can listeners follow your story, or get through your content in one sitting? Could they more fully appreciate your podcast with extra background information or references?

Accessibility isn’t just about making sure your podcast is available on every listening platform, or blowing up people’s social network feeds. It also lies in the structure of your content, how well you tell your story, and the marketing strategies you use to hook listeners in; your podcast needs to be easy to consume for listeners.

Spreaker is now giving you the ability to add chapters to your episode through our CMS. With chapters, you can delineate a clear outline of key points and favorite moments that listeners can get to easily, and create new ways to share your content.

How to Create Your Perfect Podcast Intro

0

Your podcast intro is important… Actually, it is the most important audio element you will ever create for your podcast.

Why?

It is the very first thing a potential new listener will hear. You have approximately 30 seconds to grab their attention – if you mess that part up, that’s that. Your potential new listener will move on and may never come back.

4 Ways to Increase Podcast Audience Engagement

0

You’re not just a podcaster. You’re a content creator. In order to grow your audience, focus on delivering value and involving your subscribers in the podcast.

Based on a study by Clammr, interest in podcasts has increased. Between 2014 and 2015, there was a 32 percent increase in the volume of Google searches for “podcast” and a 37 percent increase in downloads.

However, Clammr suggests that this “underlying growth is being driven more by increased listening from existing users than by growth in the underlying user base.”
