Get your podcast out to the world!
The next step after creating your podcast and uploading its first episode is to set up distribution. Continue reading to learn more about the Distribution page and how to distribute your podcast across the globe!
The Distribution Page
Our Distribution page walks you through how to distribute your podcast to all major listening platforms on the internet. Keep in mind that the Distribution page is more of an organizational hub that helps to facilitate distribution to the various listening platforms. Podcasters need to manually set up distribution for most of the listed platforms.
This page simply provides the instructions for each of the major distributors. It doesn't act as a connection between RedCircle and the listening platforms. Rather, the listening platforms ‘read’ your RSS Feed URL, which podcasters provide to them while setting up distribution, and make updates according to the changes made in their RSS Feeds.
RedCircle automatically publishes your show to Google Podcasts and RadioPublic. No action needed from you!
Once a show is published on one of the platforms listed on the Distribution page, simply return to that page and paste in the podcast’s URL into the URL text field.
If you migrated from another hosting platform, then see the Help articles for the specific listening platforms for instructions on updating your distribution.
We created this section just in case you run into any issues while setting up your distribution. Be sure to check here first to see if the solution to your problem is already listed!
I pasted in the wrong distribution link. What do I do now?
Mistakes happen! Our Support team can easily swap the incorrect link with the right one. Simply provide us with the correct link and we’ll do the rest!
My show/episode is not showing up on one or more listening platforms. Why?
This can happen for a number of reasons, though the most common are 1) the listening platform(s) only crawls your show once every 24 hours, or 2) the episode was never published.
Some listening platforms can take up to 24 hours to update and reflect new changes, such as newly released episodes. If you’re not seeing the change in 24 hours, then follow these troubleshooting steps:
- Audio can stay cached for up to 24 hours on your device. Try clearing the cache or listening on another device and/or network
- Reach out to the platform’s Support team to see if they’re able to assist with the issue.
