Hey everyone! This is Ashley with RSS podcasting, and today I’m going over how to upload your podcast to Spotify.
There are over 250 million people across more than 75 countries worldwide listening to Spotify. These numbers are only continuing to grow, so, if you’re not on it, you should be! Here’s how. Head over to podcasters.Spotify.com.
Go ahead and create an account if you don’t already have one. As with many podcast directories, you’ll want to make sure that the email address you sign up with is the same one you used for your podcast host. Otherwise, you could get an error when you’re trying to submit your podcast.
Once you’ve logged in simply click get started.
Then, you’ll add your podcast’s RSS feed, and click next. Check out the link in this episode’s description box to learn how to create your podcast RSS feed if you don’t already have one.
Your next step is to verify you own the podcast that you’re submitting. You’ll receive a verification code to the email address that’s associated with your RSS feed.
After you’ve verified ownership, fill in the details of your podcast. This information is used to tell people who stumble upon your show what your podcast is about.
The final step before you submit your podcast is to double-check your details. If everything is accurate, click submit.
If there were no errors in submitting your show, you should see a success screen. It can take as many as a few hours to as long as a few days for your podcast to show up. Unfortunately, right now Spotify doesn’t send you an email to let you know if they’ve actually loaded your show to their platform. In the meantime, you can click track podcast to see the status.
Until the show is live, your dashboard will continue to say processing next to your submission date. Keep checking back to see if your show appears in the directory.
Once it’s done processing, you’ll see your show is live in the catalog section of your dashboard. And that’s all there is to it. Thanks for tuning in!
