Apple Podcasts is one of the Best Ways To expand your Podcast reach!
Podcasting is a great way to establish and build an audience, provide entertainment, encourage others and get your message out into the world. Apple podcasts is one of the most important directories you can submit your podcast to. It accounts for over 26% of all podcast downloads and is a default app on every iPhone. This gives posting your content on this platform a distinct advantage over all other platforms on the market. In other words, if you’re a podcast host, Apple is where you want to be. Submitting your podcast to Apple Podcasts doesn’t just put you on iTunes, many podcast apps like Overcast and Pocket Casts draw from Apple’s directory.
Apple podcasts require every show to have at least one episode to get listed, but they do not host your podcast. You will need to create an RSS feed to sync. Your podcast’s RSS feed includes all of the metadata about your podcast and links to your cover art and audio files. Apple podcasts that are submitted are not approved automatically. There is a human review of every new podcast and they will send you an email once they approve your podcast. Once apple accepts your show, you’ll have access to the largest platform of podcast listeners in the world.
