Setting up and designing a podcast website

Setting up and designing a podcast website

When you host your podcast with Springcast, we automatically create a website for your podcast. This website is not only great for your audience to be able to listen to your podcast, it is also essential if you want to publish your podcast on Apple, Spotify or Google. 

The podcast website we create for you is excellent when it comes to SEO, which means your podcast will pop up sooner in search engines like Google.  And the best part is: you don't have to put any effort in creating this website. Just upload your content and we'll take care of the rest. Should you want to change the look and feel of your website: that's possible too. You can customize your podcast website using your company colors.

In this article we'll tell you how to set up your website language, how to customize your branding and how to add links to your podcast website. We'll give you some information about newsletter integration.

1. Setting the language of your podcast website

Your podcast website can be set up in the following 10 languages:

  1. Dutch
  2. Danish
  3. English
  4. Spanish
  5. French
  6. Portuguese
  7. Italian
  8. Norwegian
  9. Swedish

Changing the language is easy:

1. Login to your Springcast app
2. Select 'podcast website' on the left side of the screen
3. Select the language of your choice under 'podcast website settings'
4. Select 'save changes' (you'll find the button below)

If you want to be successful in podcasting, it is important to add links. Link building is very important if you want to increase the popularity of your podcast. Add links to for instance Spotify, Google, Apple and YouTube so your audience can listen to your podcast on those platforms. 

You can also add links to your socials so people can follow you and become regular listeners. You can add all links in the field below, under 'podcast website'.

3. Designing/branding your podcast website

If you host your podcast with an Advanced, Growth or customized package yo'll be able to customize your podcast website with your own branding. We'll guide you through how this works step-by-step.

1. Select 'podcast website' 
2. As you can see in the GIF above, you can easily change the colors of your website. You can also customize the colors of your embedded player
3. Activate your custom colors by switching the Use custom colors for website button 'on' (see example below)

4. Want to hide the Springcast logo on your podcast website? Make sure you upgrade your Springcast account to our Growth package. With our Growth package you can turn the Springcast branding off by switching the 'Show Springcast branding' button off. You can even run your podcast website on a domain of your choice. Once you've registered your domain, we can move your podcast website to that domain. Once again, this is only possible with a Growth package. 

4. Newsletter integration - set up optin service

We offer Newsletter integration starting from our Advanced package. This allows your audience to subscribe to your newsletter.  You can create and distribute your newsletter with our newsletter too. We're currently supporting the following integrations: 

  1. Mailchimp
  2. Active Campaign
  3. Mailerlite

  5. Hubspot

You can set up the Optin service for your Newsletter by taking the following steps:

2. Select the desired Optin service by going to 'technical settings' 
3. Fill out the fields as shown below. Under the fields we provide you with information on how to find the necessary info in your Newsletter tool.
