I help my clients structure and launch their own podcast with my Podcasting Made Simple Production and Launch Program. In a nutshell, they record conversations and I edit, produce and publish their episodes. However, for people that are comfortable doing this without any help, I have secured a promo code from Libsyn.
There are many free hosting platforms such as Anchor. But the downside is that you will have very little control and are playing by their rules that can be changed at any moment. If you have a long term vision for your podcast and want to be in control of your own episode length, number of episodes and decide whether ads are appended to your episodes, Libsyn is a much more sensible option.
Libsyn is used by podcasts of all sizes and makes it incredibly easy to publish every episode to Apple Podcasts, Spotify, TuneInRadio, Stitcher, YouTube etc by just clicking publish. If you are thinking of using Libsyn as your podcast host, Use the promo code TBW when signing up. The code will give you the rest of the current month and the entire next month for free.
Libsyn Promo Code Instructions
Use the promo code TBW when signing up at Libsyn to receive the rest of the current month and the entire next month for free. But, just like the Gremlins movie, there are 3 simple rules to ensure you secure the most value from the code.
- The promo code only works for your first show with the Libsyn platform. If you launch another show the code will not work.
- To get the maximum value from the offer, add the code on the 2nd of the month. This will ensure you get the entire month for free and the following month too. It is much safer to avoid doing it on the 1st of the month due to potential confusion with time zones, so I recommend signing up on the second day of a month.
- Choose your data package wisely. If you change your account level at any point during your free trial, it will instantly kick the account into payment mode. – And they are charged per the prorated amount for that current month. Don’t fall into the trap of signing up for a $5 account then change it to the $20. The trial comes to an end and it will cost you more in the long run.
