If you want to attract more listeners to your podcasts (and also get many additional benefits), the easiest way to do this is to create a podcast website.
A website optimized for SEO attracts people searching for certain topics. If these topics are covered in your podcasts, you can get a lot of new visitors from search engines.
All sites created using podcast templates from Weblium have built-in SEO settings, that will help Google find your website easily.
Podcasts are a long-lasting thing, especially if you are covering evergreen content. Tracking the analytics, you will see how many new listeners can be attracted to your older episodes.
If you have no website, publishing your podcasts can be troublesome. You need a special podcast RSS feed that publishes individual episodes for a specific platform. iTunes, Stitcher or SoundCloud require RSS feeds for files upload.
Upload the podcast directly to your website, create an RSS feed and automatically move it to platforms you need.
Add contact forms on the site, feedback and comments sections, chat, and you will be able to get your listeners engaged to fullest, which will increase their interest. Create a poll that will help crowdsource potential topics and guests for future podcasts.
Your listeners will be glad to have such opportunities and they will more likely distribute information about your podcast organically.
Weblium podcast templates have all the necessary pages and blocks that you may need to effectively attract the attention of your audience and interact with it. Sections such as latest episodes, all podcasts archive, divided into categories, live events list, sponsors section, buy tickets/buy products/make a donation button, press page, team page, shop, blog, and social networks buttons, download app buttons will help your website to achieve its goals.
