For a long time, getting your podcast added to Spotify has been tricky, to say the least!They didn’t allow public submissions, meaning that trying to get your show added was like hitting your head against a brick wall.
With around 180 million subscribers* it’s no surprise that podcasters everywhere want to get onto the platform.But the great news is, now you can!This week, Spotify have opened up a new portal allowing you to submit your podcast feed.I’ve experienced it first-hand – I submitted my podcast, Sheffield Hopcast to it earlier and it’s incredibly quick and easy – 15 minutes, to be precise!
Here’s how you too can submit your podcast to Spotify in 3 easy steps.
Head to https://podcasters.spotify.com/ and firstly enter your podcast’s name, then check through the terms and conditions, check the box, and hit submit.
Next, you’re asked to enter your RSS feed. For Podcast Websites members, simply log into your Dashboard and hit ‘Copy Feed Link’ at the top of the page.
Here, you have to fill out four sections – the country where the podcast is produced, your primary language, your provider (very limited options here at the moment, so you’ll probably end up with ‘Other’) and pick a category (again options are a little limited, where does a beer podcast fit?!)
