3 Simple Ways Podcasters Can Reach Listeners and Get Them Engaged

0

What would your podcast be if your listeners weren’t there? It would just be a one-way conversation, a full-on monologue shared with no one but yourself. There’s almost no point in producing a podcast if there’s no one there to dialogue with.

And so, once you’ve found the right words to say and have used the best tools at your disposal to do so, the next step is to really focus on getting those words to open ears – and get them wanting more.

There are three components to reaching listeners and getting them hooked: distribution, engagement, and getting them loyal. Here’s how to approach each using Spreaker’s professional podcasting tools:

3 Easy Steps for Submitting Your RSS Feed to iTunes

0

One of the reasons why podcasts are so hyped and popular these days is that once they’re online, you can share them everywhere and through any platform or device. This means that once you’ve published the newest episode of your podcast, thanks to your RSS feed, you’ll be able to get it automatically shared on every platform or network you’ve set it on, including iTunes, which is still one of the largest web services for listening to podcasts.

An RSS feed (Really Simple Syndication), which is set up like a URL, sends regularly updated or changing content from say a blog or a podcast, to other web services. A “podcast feed URL” is a document which contains all of your show’s information, and if you want to submit a podcast to iTunes, you’ll need to have it hosted on a website that is able to generate its RSS feed. The way it works is that every time an update is made to your podcast, the RSS feed gets automatically updated as well. Then, whoever is subscribed to your podcast’s RSS feed will be automatically notified that there’s new content. If you’ve submitted it to iTunes, or any other podcatchers that accepted RSS feed submissions, it will show up there, too.

What if you don’t have a website set up for generating RSS feeds? Well, no problem: you can set up your podcast on Spreaker, and it will automatically generate the RSS feed for you. In fact, we give you the ability to share both your Show and Profile RSS feeds. To do so, here are the three steps you need to follow:

Why are podcasts the new blogs?

0

Do you remember how, ten years ago, we were all obsessed with blogs? And how many times you said (or you’ve been told) “you should start writing a blog”? Suddenly, even your grandma had a blog about gardening tips.

Don’t you think it’s the same now, with podcasts? And doesn’t it seems awkwardly amazing to listen to your grandma’s voice talking about how to keep your cyclamen from dying in the winter? It’s amazing!

It is undeniable that podcasts are living their golden age and that the ingredients are basically three: easy-to-use platforms, professionalism, and incisive content creation – the same successful ingredients for putting together a successful blog. So, what’s the difference? And which one is better?
