How To Submit A Podcast To Stitcher
A Step-By-Step Guide On Submitting A Podcast To Stitcher
1. Log in and create a new account
Start by logging into Stitcher and creating a new account. It will ask you to fill in information about yourself, including your name, email address, and home address. The reason it asks for your home address is that Stitcher has an affiliate program that requires a home address.
Once you fill in the fields and agree to the terms, it will take you to the page where you submit your feed.
2. Enter your podcast’s name and RSS feed URL
Enter the name of the show and the RSS feed URL and choose a category for your show. The form asks you to choose how many listeners the show has, and for a new show you should probably choose the 0-100 option.
There are also fields that allow you to fill in your social media information and choose keywords related to your podcast. Choose your keywords strategically as these terms will help your show surface in results when users search for specific topics.
3. Submit and wait for approval
Once you’ve filled in all the information, submit your podcast and Stitcher will notify you by email once it’s been approved. They’ll provide a link for where you can find your show on the platform. Stitcher usually approves podcasts in the same day, which is important to consider as you coordinate your launch date between.
