Patreon provides a simple way for podcasters to monetize their podcasts. Podomatic helps podcasters reach an audience with free podcasts, customizable embedded players, and promotional tools. The two companies have partnered – and the outcome could benefit podcasters.
Patreon is integrating with Podomatic so that podcasters can easily monetize their business and build a closer network with their fans. If you want to make use of this integration you need to have a Patreon for your podcast and have your podcast on Podomatic.
After that, all you need to do is put a Patreon button on your Podomatic profile that links directly to your Patreon page. You can do this by clicking on the “funding” tab in your Podomatic settings and adding the link to your Patreon page.
The purpose of this integration is to make it easy for your followers on Podomatic to see how they can contribute more to your work. A listener who is already looking at your podcast’s page on Podomatic can click a button and go right to you Patreon. That’s quicker and easier than if they had to go searching for your Patreon themselves.
It should be noted that podcasters can use Patreon without using Podomatic, and can use Podomatic without using Patreon. The partnership between the two companies could be beneficial for podcasters who are already using both services, or who are using one and were considering using the other as well.
