My First Check of Radio Public

You will get your podcast on the Radio Public platform at When you’ve been authorised at Radio Public, they ship a weekly e mail abstract to your e-mail with particulars about your Paid Listens exercise on RadioPublic. As soon as your podcast earns $25 will probably be eligible for payout, and we’ll ship an e mail with details about tips on how to configure the cost step.

Earnings are a mixture of your Paid Listens (at a price of $20 per 1000 listens of your episodes within the RadioPublic app) and for each new listener that hears three episodes of your present within the RadioPublic app, you’ll earn a Loyal Listener bonus of a further (one-time) $1 – and sure, this bonus layers on prime of your Paid Listens fee.

Speaking about Radio Public

They ship you the assistance part alot as you’re navigating via their service. One web page explains how one can speak to your viewers:

In your present:

On social media:

“Help [Show Name] by listening with the free RadioPublic app for iOS or Android. Whenever you take heed to my/our present on RadioPublic, everybody advantages. [Link to show]”

Or you possibly can go deeper. Listed here are a couple of of the explanations individuals inform us they love RadioPublic. Relying in your viewers — and you already know them greatest — you may need to emphasize a number of of the next:

  • It really works for everybody, all over the place:
  • Straightforward to make use of: 
  • Import your exhibits:
  • Privateness: RadioPublic doesn’t require a login, so you can begin listening instantly, and your privateness is all the time revered.
  • Open platform: Whereas some podcast listening apps take a “walled backyard” strategy, RadioPublic is open to all podcasts.
  • Rewarding podcasters: not solely do episodes heard within the RadioPublic apps earn cash for podcasters via the Paid Listens price and the Loyal Listener bonus, we’re creating a wholesome ecosystem and constructing a market to help the long-term enterprise fashions of all podcasters huge and small. By listening with RadioPublic, your present can keep financially sustainable so you possibly can maintain making episodes.
  • Public profit: RadioPublic is a Public Profit Company powered by bona fide podcast geeks with in depth expertise in public and not-for-profit media.

What Is the Standards For a Pay attention?

We outline a Paid Pay attention as a listener listening to at the very least 60% or 30 minutes of an episode, whichever is shorter. For now, solely listens within the native RadioPublic cellular apps for iOS and Android rely. A number of listens to a given episode by the identical consumer’s gadget/account will rely as a single pay attention.

Additionally, it is very important perceive that a obtain doesn’t essentially equal a pay attention. On all podcast apps, together with RadioPublic, a given episode’s audio file may be downloaded a number of occasions: the consumer might have deleted it earlier than listening; a consumer’s native community error can happen and the file must be downloaded once more; a podcast internet hosting supplier can have a problem that initiates one other obtain, and so on.RadioPublic measures when an episode is definitely heard, so you shouldn’t all the time anticipate a 1:1 obtain to pay attention ratio in your internet hosting supplier’s metrics or dashboard.

What to Do If Your Episode Already Has Advertisements?

It relies upon. Are your advertisements part of your last audio file (often referred to as “baked in,” these advertisements are everlasting fixtures and thought of part of the general episode perpetually), or are your advertisements dynamically inserted (advertisements could be added in, eliminated, or up to date over time and function independently of your episode)?

Relying in your present strategy to advertisements, you have got a number of choices for offering ad-free episodes to RadioPublic:

  • Take away the advertisements out of your older episodes in your present RSS feed by reuploading newly edited audio information to your podcast host. (We perceive that this can be extra work than you need to tackle in the intervening time, so you possibly can think about ad-free episodes shifting ahead as an alternative.)
  • Create one other RSS feed that accommodates ad-free episodes and supply that feed to RadioPublic.
  • Contact your advert gross sales workforce and podcast internet hosting firm, as they could have the power to show off dynamically inserted advertisements when episodes are requested from RadioPublic.

Boosting Your Radio Public Impact

A person episode hyperlink will get you however one step away from incomes for each pay attention within the RadioPublic apps for iOS and Android. (Keep in mind, so long as your previous episodes don’t include advertisements, they’re eligible for Paid Listens, and for each new listener that hears three episodes of your present on RadioPublic, you’ll obtain the one-time Loyal Listener bonus.)

Whereas your present’s RadioPublic hyperlink is sort of probably probably the most highly effective podcaster device at your disposal, your particular person episode hyperlinks are a particular shut second (and third, fourth, fifth… carry on counting till you get to the variety of episodes you’ve revealed). Every episode is a chance for somebody to get hooked in your present, and particular person episode pages serve each as gateways for brand spanking new listeners and common reminders on your returning ones.

The place Do The Advertisements Go?

RadioPublic will place audio advertisements earlier than and/or after episodes collaborating in Paid Listens, and the advertisements might be clearly demarcated with audio and visible cues as distinct out of your present, not a part of it.

This Might Advert Up Besides For…

I checked out my stats for the Faculty of Podcasting and I am getting round 20,000 downloads a month (once more, I’ve over 600 episodes) so at $20 for one thousand downloads that’s 20 X 20 or $400 a month. There is just one slight drawback. I would wish each single individual to subscribe on Radio Public, and the listens on my web site by way of their embed-able participant do not rely. So I’m testing the waters to see what occurs.

For me, I am unsure I can take a look at my viewers and say, “Please go pay attention on this app the place I can higher promote to you.”

John Bukenas of on the present that he tried to import his exhibits, and the app crashed.

Patreon Vs Radio Public

Final month on Ask the Podcast Coach I had three, 852 downloads. If we play in fantasy land and says EVERYBODY heard it on Radio Public, I might make $76. What I do on that present is I do an additional 30 minutes of present with my co-host Jim Collison from www.theaverageguy.television and put it behind a paywall utilizing Patreon. Final month I am made $398 (as somebody took the choice to pay $125/month and obtain an hour of 1 on one teaching) if we eliminated that (as that slot just isn’t all the time full that might be $248. (or three.2 occasions the sum of money from Radio Public).

Pennies Make Dollars

Should you’re making an attempt to do podcasting full time, you want a number of streams of revenue. As with different providers I’ve used that inserted advertisements paid $1.5 for 1000 listens, Radio Public is a a lot better answer. However as the typical podcaster get round 1500 downloads per episode ( I am not going to retire on the $30 (once more that might be if EVERY SINGLE ONE of your listeners was utilizing the Radio Public app)

Enhancements Wanted

With the brief time I examined Radio Public, they want to have the ability to group podcasts collectively. I might get to the $25 a month payout charge if all my exhibits have been listed underneath one account. From what I’ve seen they don’t seem to be. So now each present must get 1250 downloads (the quantity it’s essential make $25) as an alternative of all of my exhibits working collectively. That may make for extra payouts, and make it value my whereas.

Pippa Launched in October of 2017. With a aim of creating it straightforward to start out a podcast, and making it straightforward to monetize. They’ve completed some questionable advertising (by scraping e-mail addresses from the iTunes Database and accusing their competitors of inflating their numbers). I’ve examined their service with The Historical past of Six Shooter podcast. Their interface is straightforward, they usually do supply free transcriptions. I examined their transcription service and it was solely 70% correct (so plan on spending a good period of time tweaking your transcription).

Initially they adopted the Soundcloud marketing strategy which allows limitless uploads and limitless downloads (And misplaced 100 million dollars).  Just lately they up to date their pricing. They STILL assist you to add as many information as you need, however they restrict the dimensions of your viewers (the costlier the package deal, the extra downloads you’re allowed). For this present that will get over 20,000 downloads a month, I might be on the $50 a month plan. I presently use the $20/month plan at (use the coupon code sopfree for a free month).

As they restrict your variety of downloads (when different corporations like and don’t) they’re simply not a sensible choice for my part. I do know individuals who have acquired hundreds of downloads by being talked about on an influencer’s weblog. For me, I might take a cross on
