Why Your Podcast Needs a Website 💻

In this video, we’re addressing one of the most common questions we’re asked, which is whether or not you need a website for your podcast. The truth is you do need one, and there are 6 reasons why.

#️⃣ 1. The first reason is that having a website gives you a place to archive old episodes. Some podcast directories limit how many episodes listeners can access, but if you have a website you can share links to all of your past shows if you choose to.

#️⃣ 2. Reason number two is that you can repurpose your episodes into other forms of content more easily. This is a great way to utilize the power of SEO to grow your audience, your fanbase, and your business.

#️⃣ 3. Having a website also gives you a place to engage more with your audience. Listeners can comment on how you did, what they think of your material, and even give you episode ideas.

#️⃣ 4. The fourth reason your podcast needs a website is that it makes it easier for people to find your show. Needing to download an app to listen to your episodes could be off putting, but if you have a link to your show right on your website, it’s easier for them to keep up with the latest news and releases.

#️⃣ 5. Having a website gives you a place to gather contact information and share show notes and resources to better serve your listeners. Let’s say you’re talking about an eBook or a course in your latest episode. Your website is the perfect place to direct your listeners to so they don’t have to try and remember the information related to that resource.

#️⃣ 6. The sixth and final reason you need a website is that it gives you a place to promote products and services for sale. Whether they are your offerings or someone else’s, having a website allows your listeners to take advantage of special deals and offers you may have available. This is a wonderful way to better monetize your audience, and increase your revenue.

I hope this quick video has inspired you to create a website for your podcast if you don’t have one already. That’s all for now. Thanks for tuning in! 👋🏾
