One of the best ways to promote your podcast is to give it a home on the web! A website for your podcast is a great way for your listeners to access your episodes and it can be indexed by Google to boost your visibility!
Sometimes building and designing websites can be time-consuming and delay the launch of your podcast. Launching your podcast should be easy, so once you move to one of our paid plans, we provide a podcast website for you!
Your Buzzsprout website will include your published episodes, descriptions, transcriptions, chapter markers, and host info. It will house your directory listings, social media links, and Buzzsprout Subscription
sign-up!Plus, all websites include a share page with quick links to all your listings and social pages!
Customize Your Buzzsprout Website & Share Page
To customize your podcast website and share page, head to your Website page within your Buzzsprout account. There you can customize the look and feel of your website and share page. You will be able to upload a background image or select a color to be used for your background and links. Keep in mind, the Website page is not available in the mobile view or while on the free plan.
Pro Tip: If you use an image, your background image should be a minimum of 1250x260px and less than 800k (.jpg or .png).
On that same page, you can scroll down to see how your website and share page will look on a desktop and a mobile device.
