02 Blubrry Podcast Hosting & Statistics
Podcast stats are super hard to track. In fact, Apple just recently launched statistics for the Podcast app - we're talking like this past year - and they're still not fully accurate. You need a way to track your stats so you not only know what's resonating with your audience, but you can also create a podcast media kit to land high-profile guests and sponsors for your show. We use Blubrry for our statistics, and if you want to do the same you can get 1 Month of FREE Statistics with Promo Code: BLOGGED
Your podcast will be published via blog posts on your website which then publishes to platforms like iTunes & Google Play - unless you don't want it on your blog (for reasons like site speed) or have a platform that doesn't integrate with a podcast publishing plugin like PowerPress (by Blubrry). In this case, you'll need a podcast hosting platform to store your files and publish them to the different platforms. Again, Blubrry is our go-to for this and you can also get 1 Month of FREE Hosting with Promo Code: BLOGGED
