For all the buzzing from us podcasting insiders, speculation from tech reporting companies, and even financial media companies weighing in on Spotify's buying spree, we're not doing a good job of answering the question on most podcasters' minds:
What is the implication for my podcast, and what should I do right now?
In this short episode, I'll answer that question, as clearly and concisely as I can, with four primary points:
- Relax. No changes will be seen for weeks/months to come.
- Check to make sure your show is on Spotify. And if it isn't, fix that. (All of my clients' shows are already on Spotify. You're welcome.)
- Think about Anchor as a possible additional distribution point. (All of my client's shows are already on Anchor's platform. You're welcome.)
- While we can't know what Spotichor (yes, I'm totally coining that) will look like in the future, you should double-down on making the best episodes for your show as possible. Quality and attention to detail will matter even more than they do now.
