Create a new account for podcasts
If you’ve previously signed up for a Spotify account, it doesn’t apply if you’re a podcaster or the person who created the podcast content. You have to create a new account again as podcaster. It’s also the same as when you register to create a Spotify account, creating a new account.
Once you’ve created a new account, you’ll also be required to fill in various personal pages in the podcast you want to create. This personal page is more information about what the content of the podcast is made and aims at what podcasts are made. When you’re done, just save it.
Choose Artists inside Spotify
Keep in mind that once the podcast page has been created, it doesn’t mean that your podcast suddenly gets the audience. The Podcast account you’ve created should still be promoted and Spotify can help you promote the podcasts you’ve created.
Spotify provides a third party for you to cooperate in the Pomosi podcast. There will be some artists to choose from. These Artists are called as podcast aggregator that have indeed been working with Spotify.
You must be careful in choosing this aggregator because it can be profitable or can harm you. From the upside, the podcasts you create can be found easily by others. However, the disadvantages are competing against the Lads podcast. In other words, using this aggregator is like a fortune.
Promote to social media
Once the podcast has been created, you should also start promoting it to social media. You can do promotions for free through today’s popular social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media. In this section, Spotify only serves as a facilitator so that the sharing process can be easier.
That’s how to easily insert podcasts into Spotify. It can be said that making podcasts on Spotify is easy. The thing you need to note is to see the contents of the podcast created. Don’t let the content you’ve created violate the rules that Spotify has made. Hopefully this article can provide many benefits to the reader all.
