Independent Podcast Network

Megaphone: Getting Started with Your Podcast

Our network is proud to partner with Megaphone, our preferred podcast hosting platform! Megaphone has the tools you need to successfully grow and monetize your podcast. And now, through our network, those resources are available to you- the independent podcaster.

Getting Started with Megaphone

If you have already launched your podcast, we’ll be migrating your content to Megaphone through your podcast’s RSS feed. If your podcast hasn’t launched, we’ll be creating a new podcast for you through the Megaphone platform. This all starts with our Megaphone intake form.

Once you complete the form, our network will create your Megaphone account for you. If you would like to add multiple users to your account with different permissions, please include that information on your onboarding form so we can create accounts for all of your team members.

Megaphone: An Overview of the Platform

We’ve created this video that briefly walks you through the Megaphone platform- so you understand the overall layout of the platform. A breakdown of the individual sections of Megaphone is listed below. For more detailed information about each of these sections, please click the corresponding links.

This is your new login page for Megaphone. Bookmark it because you’ll be coming back often.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the different sections on Megaphone, so you know how to access the tools you need.

Megaphone Dashboard

The Megaphone dashboard is the first page you see when you log into your account. It provides a quick overview of how all the podcasts on your account are performing.

Podcasts

The podcast section is where you make changes to your podcasts and your episodes. This is where you’ll be spending most of your time. You’ll be able to import or create new podcasts, make changes to the information in your podcast RSS feed, add new episodes and create the ad markers within those episodes so you can dynamically insert ad campaigns and promos.

Campaigns

Through campaigns, you can create advertising campaigns and orders so your podcast can generate revenue.

Promos

This feature is unique to Megaphone, and we love it! Promos allow podcasters to use the same dynamic insertion technology used for advertising campaigns, but instead, use it for your own promotions. This is an excellent way to get a timely message out to your entire podcast audience, regardless of the episode they’re listening to.

Inventory

Inventory lets you see all the dynamic insertion spaces you’ve created for your podcasts. At a glance, you can see what inventory is still available, what has been put on hold, and what spots have been sold.

Reports

With reports, you can see the metrics of how your podcasts are performing based on your audience, their location and the devices they’re using. If you have access to multiple podcasts in your Megaphone account, you can also compare podcasts to each other. This information is extremely helpful when creating your content and marketing plans.
