0

Your podcasts are great and you’re hard at work. It’s something you enjoy doing. But sometimes, it can be frustrating to have fewer listeners. You never know if they will return, even if you like them. Keeping your followers and fans updated about your new episodes can take a lot of work.

To solve the problem, use the RSS feed.

Do I need a podcast-only feed?

Yes. Yes. Your site-wide RSS feed may pick up your blog posts, but not your podcast episodes.

You will need an RSS feed to submit your podcast to iTunes, Apple Podcasts and Stitcher, Spotify or Google Podcasts. This allows new listeners to find your podcast when they search for it easily.

Why do you need a podcast RSS feed?

Your listeners should be kept up to date with all new podcast episodes. You want your fans to experience all episodes. While the most dedicated will check your channel daily to ensure they get all the episodes, many others won’t bother. It’s easy for people to forget about online content because they are so busy.

Subscribe to your podcast RSS feed and your followers will see the latest updates in their summary display. They will visit your feed to see the latest episodes and click on your episode.

As a content producer, it’s your responsibility to make yourself easily found by followers. It would be best if you made it as simple as possible to avoid losing your followers.

It would help if you created an RSS feed for your podcast so your listeners can subscribe easily.

You can create an RSS feed if you can code (most people don’t). To ensure that your episodes appear in the feeds of your subscribers, you will need to add a new item for each new episode.

You could also use a feedbuilder to host your podcast RSS feed on RSS.com These steps are easy to follow, and you don’t need to be a programmer.

Podcast hosting made easy

RSS.com offers a simple and easy way for subscribers to upload podcast episodes. Once you’re done uploading, all new episodes will be automatically updated in your listener’s feeds as long as they subscribed to your RSS feed in Apple Podcasts, iTunes, Spotify Google Podcasts, Stitcher and other podcast directories.

This is an excellent solution for content producers who don’t have the time or desire to learn all the technical details of RSS feeds.

After you have RSS.com set up, you can quickly get back to making great episodes and growing your audience.
