Okay, you’ve recorded and edited your podcast, now what? How do you get it from your computer to Spotify or Apple Podcasts? There are a few steps to take before anybody in the world can listen to your creation. But don’t worry, in this post we’ll tell you how to submit your podcast to every streaming platform easily.
Directories – The promised land!
Directories are the platforms where you can subscribe your podcast’s RSS feed to. In simpler words, they are the streaming services in which people can find your podcast and hit play.
Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Himalaya, and Google Podcasts are only a few of the podcast directories out there.
Here is a list of directories with links:
iTunes / Apple Podcasts: https://podcastsconnect.apple.com/my-podcasts/new-feed
Google Podcasts: https://podcastsmanager.google.com/add-feed?hl=en
Hosting – Your new BFF
Directories update periodically, but they need the help of a host. Each time you publish something from your podcast hosting, it will reflect on Spotify, Apple Podcast, or wherever you listen.
But what is a host?
Well, a host is a platform that works as an intermediary between you and the directory. Hostings allow you to upload your audio file, choose your posting date, write show notes, add sponsors, etc. Plus, some hosting services will even show you analytics on your podcast’s performance!
You’ll need to find the hosting that better suits you and start from there. Add you artwork, your sho description and get started posting episodes!
Once it’s all uploaded to your hosting site, they’ll take care of sending it over to the directories. This is the easiest way to appear on all the streaming platforms. Some of these services are free and some others work with a subscription.
