Hello everyone, welcome back to another video, dusty here. So today I’m going to be showing you guys how to get your podcast on Spotify. So historically, Spotify only allowed certain partnered podcasts to be on their platform, but as of now the past day or so they’re opening, opening their platform up to all podcasters. All you have to do is provide them with your RSS feed. And so I’m going to be walking you through that today. Now, I. Do highly suggest that you go watch my lips in the tutorial on audio hosting and RSS feeds. If you don’t understand what I’m talking about in this video, but if you do, let’s talk about getting your show on Spotify because right now it’s a. It’s the percentages of people listening to podcasts on Spotify is only going to increase, so you definitely want to get ahead of the curve here on this. So the first thing you want to do is go to podcasters.spotify.com now if you have a Spotify account, you can log into that. If not, go ahead and create one. And then once you’re logged into Spotify here, go up to your dashboard or go to get started. I actually recommend clicking the get started button here now. Once you’re here, it’s going to take you to the submit page. Now all you need to do is submit your RSS feed, and Spotify basically does the rest of the work for you. So go and click on the green button here. Now this is going to allow you to read through their terms of service. Make sure you understand that. Also, make sure that you’re not using any music that is copyrighted or that is not something that you own. Server using music, sound effects, whatever it may be, all of that you have to own. So go ahead and click the I have read and agree to the terms and conditions and then go ahead and type in your legal name. Or else I’m going to go ahead and type in my LLC, which is Porter media like you see there, and then go ahead and click the green continue button. Now, this next part is the most important part. What’s the link to your podcast RSS feed?
Now you have to have a podcast host, whether it be anchor, whether it be Lipson, I recommend Lipson. Again, they are a partner of mine, but they have always always been great with answering questions. They’re very easy to use. It’s very intuitive if you’re not very tech-savvy. It’s not that difficult. So what I’m going to do now is I’m going to get my RSS feed for my podcast, so I’m going to go to Lipson, which I have open right here. Here’s my podcast YouTube creator Submaster online video, and then once I’m done what I need to do is go to the destination so under destinations under lips and you’re going to see something here that says. Lipsen classic feed. I’m going to go ahead and right-click on that. I’m going to go ahead and copy the link address just like that. I’m going to navigate back over to Spotify. I’m going to right-click here where it says link to RSS feed and I’m going to paste. That’s going to paste in my RSS feed and then once it loads up your RSS feed, you’re going to see the podcast logo information over on the right. And then you’re going to click the green next button. Now before I move on, I would like to say all of the information that’s going to be fed. Over to Spotify. If you can see here under my Spotify section is more or less going to be copied over from iTunes, so the show title, the country of origin, the English, the language, the description, the categories, all of that is coming from what you’ve inputted when you put your show on iTunes. Now if everything looks good with your RSS feed, you’ll see the green checkmark here that says looking good. Let’s keep going. Click the green next button on the lower right-hand side. It’s going to ask you a couple of questions about your podcasts. Where is your podcast made? For me, it’s the United States.
What is the primary language spoken in your podcast? For me it’s English. Who is your hosting provider? So for me, as I just mentioned, it slips and so for you, it may be one of these other ones. And also if you don’t know, go to other. I don’t know, but by the way, you should know. So select your host there and then the primary category. So for me, it’s going to be in business and technology and then I’m going to choose up to three subcategories into business. So for my marketing business. Talk and then we will go to tech interviews because I do interviews. You could even add an additional category down here if that’s something that you want to do, but I’m not going to do that just yet. Once we’ve input or inserted all this information, click the green next button. It’ll say does everything look OK, and it should because you just did all of this information. Click the green Submit button there on the right-hand side of the screen, and then once you do that, you’re going to say nice. We got your podcast. It’ll take a few hours for your podcast to show up on Spotify now. This looks great. It’s very visually appealing, but if we go here and click the track podcast option here, you’re going to see that you are now taken to the spot. Spotify for podcasters beta. Now, this is something that I love once we’re in here and this podcast, it starts giving me data. I’m going to be able to see how many people are listening who’s consuming my content on Spotify and it’s so much more in-depth than it is on, says, iTunes, where the data and analytics are just terrible. So hopefully you guys found this useful. I know I’m super excited about getting it. All of my shows over onto the Spotify catalog. Hopefully, you are too. If you have any questions or have any thoughts on you know podcasting in general. I have a bunch of tutorials. I will link those in the description below.
