Holla, welcome to today’s podcasting tip. Today, we are on tip 2 of growing your audience and tip 2 is don’t forget about Android….
Stats from last year, showed eighty percent of podcast listens do currently come from Apple.
But don’t forget about the ever increasing twenty percent of Android listeners, they are a powerful force and you may find your niche audience are more likely to have an Android phone.
The problem that so many have with Android is that there are hundreds of different apps out there. Don’t worry… most of them automatically pull podcasts from the Apple podcast or iTunes database, so you don’t need to submit your podcast to a hundred different places.
I spoke about all the places to have your podcast listed on in the last episode, so this time my main point is to get them on your website…
Have buttons not just for iTunes, but also for Android, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Tunein…. If there is a nice coloourful button for the app people already use they are far more likely to hit it and hit subscribe… And thats what we want them to do!
There is a great way to leverage your Android listeners and make it easy for them to listen through the app that they choose and that’s to use subscribeonandroid.com….
Here’s how it works… You enter your RSS feed address and they supply you a link, code, or button to put on your site that will launch your podcast in the Android app that they already have and use most…. It’s perfect. So don’t forget about Android.
And most certainly make sure you are on, and have a button for Google Podcasts… It is likely to take a huge chunk of this 20%
Thanks again for checking this out. Tomorrow is part 3 of the growing your audience mini-series!
