You did it. You recorded and edited your first podcast.
Your best friend loved it, and your mom thinks you’re gonna be the next Serial. But right now you might be wondering exactly how to share a podcast...
To get your podcast out to the world, you’ll need to use a digital distribution network.
Simply put, distribution will take your finished podcast, and distribute it out to the various streaming services like Apple, Spotify, Google podcasts and more.
Before you can distribute your podcast, you’ll need to export it from the program that you use to record and edit. Here are a few tips on exporting:
Once you’ve exported your podcast and you’re happy with your final product, you’ll be ready to choose a distribution platform.
There are many popular options for distributing podcasts. Some of the most popular options include Buzzsprout, Podbean and Spreaker. Most of these offer fairly similar features and pricing options.
All of these platforms offer free options for uploading podcasts, although some have limited features or place limits on how many hours you can upload per month. You can also opt into paid/subscription models for these podcast distribution services. They offer different tiers of subscription, allowing users to upload unlimited podcasts, or in some cases access advertising and monetization features.
Since they all offer roughly similar services, the best thing to do is to explore different platforms, compare their services, and decide which best fits your needs as a new podcaster.
All that's left to do now is provide a title and description for your podcast episode. Don’t forget to include your social media info!
Before you know it, your podcast will be ready for listeners to check out wherever they stream. For more in depth information on podcasting, check out our How-to series on Youtube.
