One tap will give you (both Android and iOS users) the power to reach literally millions of new listeners by publishing to Apple Podcasts via Podcast Connect Apple ID login as we pass your feed URL to Apple Podcast Connect No Cut and Pasting, Spotify, iHeartRadio and Spreaker. Also, once a podcast is available on Apple Podcasts it automatically becomes available on other key listening platforms such as Breaker, Pocket Casts, Overcast and more – giving you the opportunity to literally double your audience.The importance of good distribution is equally as important as creating excellent content, that’s why we wanted to make it super straightforward for our users.Instead of thinking ‘where should I submit my podcast?’ and the need to access individual platforms, we’ve removed one step so you can quickly access and distribute straight from one location. What’s more, the one-tap functionality, combined with our unique live record feature, means that you can literally record and distribute a podcast in seconds, wherever and whatever you’re doing. - Submit Your Show, We’ll Take Care of the RestThen it’s just a matter of waiting up to 48 hours to have your show approved (note it will be available immediately on Spreaker and Spreaker Radio). As soon as your show is accepted you’ll be notified by e-mail, but you can always check in on the status via the app – that way you can see whether it’s been approved, waiting approval or rejected.Our New Look Show Screen - The Round-UpThese changes are just some of the many users and visual rethinks we have planned for Spreaker Studio for the coming months.Follow us on social to make sure you don’t miss any of the announcements and make sure you’ve got the latest version of Spreaker Studio so you can enjoy the benefits! - Podcast Review of the Week: “History Unplugged Podcast” For history lovers who listen to podcasts, History Unplugged is the most comprehensive show of its kind. It's the only show that dedicates episodes to both interviewing experts and answering questions from its audience. First, it features a call-in show where you can ask our resident historian (Scott Rank, PhD) absolutely anything (What was it like to be a Turkish sultan with four wives and twelve concubines? If you were sent back in time, how would you kill Hitler?). Second, it features long-form interviews with best-selling authors who have written about everything. Topics include gruff World War II generals who flew with airmen on bombing raids, a war horse who gained the rank of sergeant, and presidents who gave their best speeches while drunk.

I subscribe to a podcast when the content matches my interests and name, audio quality is good, focused, and they drive value to listener life - What does the listener get from the content or what emotions are driven… impactful!!Deliver undeniable value first, and then ask for the commitment of a subscribe in Apple Podcasts or other listening apps.Send listeners to your website and place “Subscribe” links to Apple, Google Podcasts, Spotify, etc. You can include directions on what to do with these links if you want… many folks just don’t understand all that stuff- Voxnest Data Shows Women Over the Age of 55 Listen to More Podcasts than Men +55When looking at the gender split, podcast listening takes a turn when looking at age groups. 2019 might be the year of the woman, with listening jumping from 41.5% to 44.9% for women, while decreasing from 58.5% to 55.51% for men. Females aged between 55-64 and over 65 have been listening to more podcasts than males in the same age groups. This likely is due to more content being published for a female audience, as shows focused on genres such as true crime surge in popularity.https://blog.voxnest.com/data-finds-women-over-the-age-of-55-listen-to-more-podcasts-than-men/#more-623- Podcast Review of the Week: “It's Not That Serious” Humor writer and popular online personality Anna Lind Thomas hosts the irreverent, hilarious and faith filled podcast that will inspire you to fully enjoy life, even when things look grim.

Totally makes sense to me.Seems like the power is to use both Meetup and Facebook GroupsOrganizers discussed in the blog post generally feel like Meetup is great for RSVPs but those people aren’t as likely to show up. Those that find out about events on Facebook do tend to show up more. Meetup attendees are notoriously flakey”. I agree, I have run Podcaster Meetups in Seattle for Years.Attendance will vary a lot based on month of the year, venue and purpose of the eventCommunities attract all levels of podcasterBeing an Event Organizer can have many professional benefits - building your leadership brand can help your podcast grow too. On the listener community side, I would recommend to create just a Facebook group for your listeners to engage with each other and ge listener feedback on topics and building intra-listener relationships. -Podcast Promo of the Week: Multilinguish Podcast by Babbel USA Team: Are Not multilingual, but language-curious?

Just create an MP3 and give me a brief description of your show in an email to me at rob@spreaker.com- Podcasting & Spreaker’s Events Calendar On the show today:-5 Steps to Creating a Podcast Budget It’s a myth that setting up a podcast needs to be costly or expensive (of course it can be!) but podcasting on a budget is totally achievable. Whatever your budget or level, you can make podcasting work for you -Understand Your IncomeTherefore step number 1 is to make a clear goal of exactly what you want to do with your new podcast. By defining the purpose of your show and its format (how and where you are producing it etc) will help you create the foundations of the budget you need to create.TIP: Always remember to take into consideration whether this is your profession or a hobby – how much you initially input will differ if you see this having cash rewards or not!Determine your fixed costsNext on your to-do list is to identify all of your fixed costs necessary for running your show.Based on your planning around how you’re going to produce your show, you’ll need to do some research what options there are for your show’s needs and requirements. The things you need to take into consideration are items like your host platform, microphone.-One of the main fixed costs (your host platform) can be kept to a minimum, by choosing free or low-cost podcast hosting platforms such as: Free getting started plan options.TIP: Make sure you haven’t missed anything by taking a look through past bank statements and tick off everything in there. Identify your variable (and one-off expenses)Variable costs are those which are necessary for your business to continue functioning but change from month to month. And, if this is the beginning of your podcasting journey you’ll also need to include your one-off costs – money to cover your basic equipment: microphone and headset and also some $ to create some awesome cover art (we’ve written a guide to creating great cover art, here).Wondering how to identify your variable costs? Look at what you’ve spent on office supplies, marketing / promotional costs or replacing old equipment over the last 6 months and calculate an average outgoing cost. About to start your podcast? Try and predict what you might spend (we’ve written a blog on launching a podcast you might want to take a look at) and use this to structure your budget for the first few months, once you’re up and running you can cross-check to see if your prediction is in line with the reality!TIP: Variable and one-off costs are usually the fun ones so they’re the most important ones to keep in check in your budget!-Make a rainy day fundWe would also highly recommend incorporating to your budget a fixed amount that you put away each month as part of a contingency fund. Putting away a little bit of money on a regular basis will mean you never go into crisis when something unexpected comes up!TIP: An easy way to break down your money is the 50/30/20 method. Attributing 50% to your necessary items, 30% to the things you want and 20% to saving for the future and a rainy day!-Create your budget!Now’s the time for the fun, cr(cast)eating the budget! You can build it on paper, Excel or Google Sheets or try one of the many Apps out there.Hopefully, we’ve helped debunk the myth that starting a podcast isn’t achievable without stacks of money – whatever your budget there’s a way to do it and the big expenses can always be postponed till when your show has some traction and you start earning!https://blog.spreaker.com/5-steps-to-creating-a-podcast-budget/-Podcast Review of the Week: Out of the Shadows Series by Shane Waters - Clip is from Part 16 : Interview with the Archdiocese of Baltimore (Part 1) discussing clergy abuse - Play Audio Clip from Introducing the show episode guest ----- Then Here is a clip from the investigative questioninghttps://www.spreaker.com/show/out-of-the-shadows_1 -Featured Podcast Show Of The Week: Halli Casser-Jayne Show - A terrific Politics and Entertainment topics program - https://www.spreaker.com/show/the-halli-casser-jayne-show_1 -Listener Comment - Allan Tépper about last week’s show:That was a great and educational conversation between Rob and Francesco.

Based on the trends in the research is listening growing faster over the past couple of years as we have seen more new content get created?I have read you saying that Podcasting needs more - high quality “Crap” content to grow faster - can you explain that?I read your article on Spotify, Music and Podcasting - The meteor is coming - to destroy the current open podcasting earth?Let’s talk about Spotify and the recent purchase of Gimlet and Anchor for some large dollars - those dollars signal a few things:Podcast Industry potential and revenue growth or cost savings to music streaming platforms?Increased audience growth, better tech and better and more content investmentWhy do you think Spotify is aggressively moving towards Podcasts - is about cost savings fewer music royalty payments as Podcast listening goes up or is that the whole story (Original Video Series? With Gimlet buy)Tom you think “Music” in podcasting is the key to “FASTER Growth” it seems - more revenue for music artists and podcasters plus music platforms.These coming music podcasts will likely be only on these music streaming platforms, not in the open podcasting world - thus will these really be podcasts? The music licence owners will not like downloads and this content will be streaming only.Given my understanding of how music podcasts will work - it is not really a threat to podcasting as we know it today as we are talking about new music shows on the music streaming platforms that are not really podcasts. Key is the “Download”? Women in Podcasting - the gender gap in podcasting is closing - Why do you think this is happening --- Listening and Hosting/creating - 3% growth a year, seems slow, but steady https://www.edisonresearch.com/women-podcast-listeners-closing-the-listening-gender-gap/Spreaker/Voxnest Links:https://Voxnest.comhttp://blog.spreaker.comhttp://SpreakerLiveShow.comhttps://Spreaker.comEmail: rob at voxnest.comSend Questions and Comments to:Twitter: http://twitter.com/spreaker using #SpreakerLiveTwitter: http://twitter.com/VoxNestTwitter: http://twitter.com/robgreenleeTwitter: http://twitter.com/alexeum Tech Support: support at spreaker.com

Many choose to build audience first, then slowly get into advertising, keep in mind audience size is important to gaining revenue from advertising as is most of the time based on a CPM model or getting paid based on an increment of 1,000 download/plays of your show. Ad’s can be either baked in “Host Reads”, typically only available to large audience shows in the 10’s of thousands range. The other type is the monetization offered by Spreaker with every paid pro account utilizes Dynamic Ad Insertion and we do all the ad sales for you. You can enable Preroll, Midroll and Postroll Ads and it will just do it all for you and you get a revenue share on it. Just need to set your Midroll positions in each of your episodes. -Podcast Review of the Week: This Week Unwrapped w/ Oilly Mann - The biggest unreported Global stories of the week, discussed, digested and debated.

When I started podcasting in 2012, live podcasting was a relatively new thing. Podcasts were always an “on-demand” medium, allowing you to consume pre-recorded content later via RSS. In fact, only a few podcasting companies allowed you to podcast live, like my podcast host Spreaker.com.Like other users I played with the go-live option, but preferred to take the safe, traditional route and pre-record the show. It wasn’t until I did a live all-day marathon that I found the true power of doing a live broadcast. Now, in 2018, I’m all in on live broadcasting! Here are the top reasons why you should consider going live.Instant Interaction And Feedback - Listener FriendshipsDid you just hit your listener’s funny bone? It’s easy to see with the string of LOLs and emojis in the comments section. Shock your audience into silence? Silent phones are a dead giveaway. Did you piss off all your listeners? The ALL CAPS comments full of bite and bile tell the tale. If you wonder how listeners are reacting to your show, going live is a great way to get instant feedback. Most podcasts may get five to 10 comments max per episode, but go live and it is common to get hundreds of comments per episode. Granted, many of the comments are from the same users, but the overall interaction and feedback is far and beyond any on-demand podcast you might do.Immediate Satisfaction - Both Host and Live ListenerWhen I was an actor doing live theater, I loved the immediate satisfaction of hearing the audience gasp from a dramatic moment on stage. My fellow thespians and I would become motivated and energized by their reaction. You will find the same thing happening to you when broadcasting live. Don’t forget this goes both ways. Your audience will get immediate acknowledgement in real time and it will encourage them to give even more feedback. Less Production Time - Pre-planning makes a differencePre-production not your thing? Going live can help with that. Just play a quick intro and get into the meat of the show. No need for fancy sound bites, effects, royal music, etc. Find post-production editing too time consuming? No worries, since the show is already published. When using platforms like Spreaker.com you have the option to have the live broadcast archived. The download is then available to those who prefer to listen on-demand. It’s Exciting! --- Thrill and Scary Too!I still get a rush when I see the “Live” light turn on. There is a certain energy that comes with broadcasting live. Part of the excitement is not knowing what might happen next. There is a vibe you just don’t get recording a podcast by yourself in an empty room. On-demand can actually feel a bit boring after going live for a while.Alex Exum is the host of ‘Live Talk’ Monday – Thursdays 7 p.m. PST at livetalk.live and thefringe.fm. 2018 Saw Large Growth in NEW Podcasts Published - Doubling of EpisodesSuccessful podcasters know they need to earn listeners’ time, attention, and loyalty. It’s never been more important to produce original, high-quality, creatively brave shows. It’s never been more important to invest in audience development and show marketing.The crowd is getting bigger. How will you stand out? https://blog.pacific-content.com/feeling-overwhelmed-by-the-sheer-number-of-podcasts-its-not-just-you-d46b37a8fdcc Podcon 2 is coming this weekend Jan 19-20 in Seattle at http://Podcon.comDiscount on tickets is available by using discount code “spreaker” - $10 offSpreaker will have a booth and is Silver Sponsor of the eventWe will have 4 people from Spreaker (Voxnest) at the event http://PodfestExpo.com in Orlando is Coming Too in March Listener Comments:Shelf AddictionThat day I was featured, I think there was a small spike in listens. It wasn't drastic, but I did notice a small bump. ~TamaraTHE FRINGE FMI think another thing people need to ask themselves is.....Are they ready to be heard by thousands? Is the show ready to go? Because listeners give you one or two chances and that's about it.Linda Irwin Get onto as many platforms as you can because you catch new people that way. I very recently returned to You Tube. Before you join those platforms, be sure to read the fine print on their terms of service. Many newer ones claim full ownership to your content.

They need to see some benefit from listening before they will take the time to listen.What are the benefits and how we might expose them to new potential listeners- More Show Distribution is Coming to Spreaker via airable API deal To align with CES in Vegas Spreaker has done a deal to enable shows to be distributed via new electronics devices.VOXNEST's SPREAKER podcast platform has inked a partnership deal with TUNE IN GmbH's airable platform which allows hardware manufacturers to integrate internet-delivered media to their devices. Under the pact, SPREAKER podcasts will be available to enabled device users and a collection of SPREAKER shows will be featured in a dedicated content channel via the API.With SPREAKER being on consumer electronics and high-end audio equipment, it’s important that customers using these devices have access to podcast content as well, not just music.

Spreaker Studio App Now Speaks Brazilian Portuguese - Growing your podcast listeners? Try these 8 tips Show Today: - 7 Podcasting Trends to Watch For in 2019- Should you podcast during the holidays? - Podcasts have an Increasingly Diverse Audience - Listener CommentsOn the show today:- Podcasting Trends To Watch For in 2019:1) In 2018, growth on the podcast content side has been outpacing the listening side, and that’s leading me to wonder whether all this content can realistically find an audience that will align with the projected advertising revenue in 2019 and beyond. If podcast history serves as a guide, growth in audience will catch up eventually to bring balance again. What this means is that podcasters can't simply build it and wait for audiences to come. In 2019 and beyond, as more and more content is available, it will be increasingly important the whole podcast industry focus on converting more android smartphone and radio listeners to becoming podcast listeners in 2019.2) Podcasters in 2019 will be looking to get in all the new music service platforms and grow big audiences while also expecting more promotional support from their podcast hosting platforms. Those platforms providing this level of support will prove challenging to do across thousands of podcast shows, but is very much part of the growing need and desire to grow the podcast listening audience for their show and the overall industry.3) Listening trends in 2019 will increasingly be built around very diverse audience communities. No longer can podcasts be seen as a by-white-male, for-white-male medium. In fact, 2018 marked the year when the demographics of podcast audiences nearly mirrored the demographics of the United States overall. at least for gender and ethnicity4) International growth of downloads will continue in 2019 from these top 10 fastest growing countries based on Voxnest data in 2018: Brazil, New Zealand, Ireland, Netherlands, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, Turkey, Mexico, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Looking at the countries with the highest quantity of downloads: United States of America, Denmark, Brazil, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Spain, Italy, Canada, Australia, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland. We see that even some mature podcasting markets are still growing.5) When it comes to mobile devices, the Android operating system is the global leader, with an astonishing 72% market share. Still, with just 24.4% of the market, Apple dominates when it comes to podcast listening worldwide. According to our metrics, the ratio of listening on Apple Podcasts versus general podcast listening on Android is about five to one. With this disparity, it seems getting a larger share of Android users to listen to podcasts would immediately increase the number of listeners worldwide. 6) When Google Podcasts launched, there was a lot of excitement around its potential to grow the industry exponentially and quickly. But after a surge at launch, adoption has slowed and usage declined. Six months in, most would classify the initiative as a big disappointment.Many industry leaders believe the reasons Google Podcasts has struggled include a confusing app installation process and a complete lack of promotion - particularly from podcasters, who are primarily in the Apple ecosystem. 7) In 2019 will see industry wide rollout of IAB podcast audience metrics standards that will forever change the podcast advertising market as the medium will finally have a measurement of downloads that everyone is in agreement. As more podcast hosting platforms including Voxnest’s Spreaker undergo the extensive and expensive verification for the IAB v.2 Podcast Metrics Guideline certification, advertisers’ confidence in podcasting will grow. Armed with analytics that show real, growing ROI, 2019 should be a breakthrough year where more big brands turn to the medium to reach and engage audiences. Meanwhile, as the year progresses, the emphasis on audience metrics as the competitive feature that business models are built on, the industry can get back to competing based on the quality of the content.Should you podcast during the holidays?“Man In Beta” Posted this to comments from episode #172: This should go back to how well you know your audience surely? Thanksgiving was only a holiday in the States. How much of your audience are you ignoring by only thinking about one market? I think you need to look at your stats and work out WHERE your audience is before answering this question. If 90% are outside the States, then you're doing your audience a disservice. But this "States first " mentality is a little odd in the modern podcasting realm considering where most the major platforms were founded - hint: most are not from the States (Spotify, Deezer, Spreaker, SoundCloud) and ignores the global reach of Google and Apple Podcasts. Americans need to get their heads out of their box and realise there is a whole world out there full of current and potential listeners. For example, my Football Manager podcast (yes soccer) has a nice little audience in Vietnam and Australia.- Podcasts have an Increasingly Diverse Audience No longer can podcasts be seen as a by-white-male, for-white-male medium. In fact, 2018 marked the year when the demographics of podcast audiences nearly mirrored the demographics of the United States overall. at least for gender and ethnicity. According to a presentation by Edison Research at this year’s WerkIt conference, the podcast audience is now 48% female, up from 44% in 2016 and 2017. 2018- 52% men /48% women2017- 56% men / 44% women2016- 56% men/ 44% womenThe nearly-even split is only part of the story. In the U.S., women buy more than 80 percent of all U.S. goods and services, making them an important audience for advertisers. Furthermore, self-identified heavy podcast listeners fall into highly-coveted demographic groups: married, millennials with kids and high earnings. It’s the growth of this audience that will bring more brands to podcast advertising to catalyze the industry’s growth. - Listener Comments:Linda Irwin I use different voices for my characters, too. I doubt if I could find anyone else to help me out and my comedy partner is unavailable for over a year and a half now.I sometimes have to change the days I do shows month to month, but I warn people in the show itself before the schedule changes.I also do not have a minimum time length but I do not go over 45 minutes. Our listeners prefer that.Spreaker/Voxnest Links:https://Voxnest.comhttp://blog.spreaker.comhttp://SpreakerLiveShow.comhttps://Spreaker.comEmail: rob at voxnest.comSend Questions and Comments to:Twitter: http://twitter.com/spreaker using #SpreakerLiveTwitter: http://twitter.com/VoxNestTwitter: http://twitter.com/robgreenleeTwitter: http://twitter.com/alexeum Tech Support: support at spreaker.com
