On August 13th, Spotify announced that its service for Podcasters is live. This gives the podcast creators an opportunity to have detailed insights, data, and options to drive discovery.
The tremendous response of 100,000 podcasters signing up for the beta version encouraged Spotify to launch the full-fledged version with better verification flow, dedicated Twitter account and support for teams allowing them to have a better idea about what listeners prefer.
According to spotify, the new feature has been launched to empower the podcast creating a community which is doing a tremendous job with their voice, providing information and entertainment. The number of listeners and podcasters on Spotify are expected to increase dramatically.
What it is:
In simpler words, Spotify for a podcaster is a discovery and analytics dashboard created to allow you to upload your shows to Spotify and entertain your audience. The new feature will allow you to track data such as listening times, episode streams, and the total number of listeners. This will allow you to understand your audience and what they like. As a result, you will be able to produce better and relevant content, keeping everyone happy. You can easily grow your audience and keep them engaged using the data from the dashboard that Spotify has provided you with.
“We really think you and your team will be able to get a lot of use out of it. And as always, we’re here to listen. Hit us up if you have any questions.” said Spotify.
What it aims to do:
The main motive of Spotify behind this feature launch is to provide a platform to the podcaster community to better understand their audience. With its wide range of audience, Spotify will enable podcasters to make their shows available to millions of users globally.
