Welcome to Spotify for Podcasters
Understand your fans, grow your audience, master your craft — it’s all right here.
For the past year, we’ve been hard at work figuring out the best way to help podcasters get their shows up on Spotify and building out a dashboard with the data and insights they need to understand how listeners are responding their episodes.
Now we’ve got some exciting news to share — as of today, Spotify for Podcasters is officially out of beta! Before we say anything else, here’s the important bit: If you’re a podcaster looking to access your dashboard, you can sign up right here, where you can learn even more about the product. (If your podcast isn’t on Spotify yet, you can also use that link to submit your show, too.)
When we launched the beta version last year, our goal was to collaborate with a small group of podcast creators to tell us what they needed. Since then, that group has grown to over 100,000 podcasts from 167 countries. We listened to feedback from podcasters like you to make sure we designed Spotify for Podcasters with your needs in mind — so you can track your performance through powerful data like episode retention charts, aggregate demographics about your listeners, details on your follower growth, and more. And we also made sure to focus on streaming data, so you can see insights on how fans are truly listening, not just how many downloaded an episode. 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. Look for weekly stories here on our blog with insights to help you navigate the world of podcasting, or follow us on our brand new Twitter account, where we’ll be sharing news from the whole Spotify family, including Anchor, Gimlet, Parcast, and Soundtrap. And as always, keep doing what you’re doing. We’ll be here to help along the way.
If you’re in Orlando for Podcast Movement this week, we’ll be there, too! Come stop by the Spotify for Podcasters area on the expo floor. You can grab a latte, hang out, and chat with one of our support reps who can help you sign up for your dashboard.
