👋🏾 Hey everyone! Ashley here with RSS podcasting. Today I’m sharing how to get listed on Alexa and Amazon devices by submitting your podcast to TuneIn.
Ya know, one of the greatest things about podcasting is there are so many places you can promote your show for free. By adding your show to podcast directories like TuneIn it instantly becomes available to millions of new listeners.
Here’s how to do it. First, head over to TuneIn and sign up for an account. Once logged in, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and under the subheading “Communities” click “Podcasters.”
From there, click “Publish Podcast” Next, you’ll fill out the form with your podcast details. Then, accept the terms and conditions, and click the “SEND EMAIL” button.
At this point you should receive a notification that says “Thanks for contacting TuneIn!” If you’re approved you’ll receive an email from TuneIn about your show’s submission which can take as little as a few days or up to two weeks. We received our notice of approval approximately three days after submitting our request. It said our show would be live within 24 hours, and sure enough, it was!
Now when someone opens the TuneIn app on Alexa, they should be able to find “The RSS Podcasting Tutorials Show” on their favorite Amazon device. We tested it out, and found our podcast when we said, “Alexa, find RSS Podcasting Tutorials Show on TuneIn.” While it was a very specific inquiry, we must admit it was pretty cool seeing our show come up on our screen when we said the request into our FireStick!
If you follow these steps, hopefully your show will be accepted too. Thanks for tuning in!
