Why You Should Use Apple Premium Podcasting For Subscribers
There are a few reasons offering subscriptions of your podcast can work in your favor. Starting out, offering paid subscriptions is a great way to earn revenue for your podcast, made even easier by simple publishing within Blubrry. And of course, people love to be part of a club. Subscriptions allow for a more intimate or close relationship with your audience, something all podcasters are striving to achieve.
How To Get Started
First things first, you must have an Apple Podcast Connect account and join the Apple Podcasters Program. Once you’ve done that, get started on the steps below.
1. Choosing your subscription benefits is one of the most important parts! Here you’ll decide if you want to offer exclusive content earlier, only to subscribers, for a fee, etc. You’ll do this in the Apple Podcasts Connect account. For additional details follow these links for one show or multiple shows.
2. Publish a public episode of your show, usually an introduction or a trailer. From there you can promote your subscription benefits.
3. Create your subscription content, aka your premium episode.
4. Publish your premium episodes, all within Blubrry’s publishing platform in the dashboard!
