Create Your Feed
The title, author (You!), and description appear in podcast apps once a listener subscribes. The link is optional and appears in some apps, but not all.
When choosing the type, Instant is the simplest. It's a quick, bingeable playlist of all episodes back-to-back. Great for courses. Note: New content can't be dated for when it's added. If you're adding ongoing content, use a Date-Based feed (requires a Pro plan).
If you don't have an image yet, you can drop one that's temporary. It can be changed later :)
Drag your media files to upload and add an episode. Videos will be converted to audio automatically.
Tip: they appear alphabetically in the list, so numbering them before uploading helps get them in the right order from the start :)
Heads up! 10 comes before 2 in an alphabetical list, so use double digits as needed, e.g. 01, 02, ...09, 10, 11
Drag to reorder in and instant feed.
Click on an episode to change its title. You can also change the scheduled date here to reorder a Date-Based feed.
Flip the switch to publish once the episode is ready.
Generate and distribute the universal link if you'd like to keep things simple. This is good for email opt-ins if you don't care about removing access from individual listeners.
If you want to have unique links for each listener, add them in the "Listener & Links" area. You can paste a list of email addresses to add in bulk.
We can email the link for you, or you can download a CSV of all listeners' links and upload to your email system of choice to send yourself.
Automate Listener Addition
Using Zapier, you can have a step in your Zap that adds the listener to your feed automatically.
It returns their subscribe link which you can import to your email platform in a later Zap step.

To disable access for an individual listener, flip their switch to turn off their feed link.
You can also automate this with a Zapier step.
