Podcast promotion made easy
After you’ve published a new public podcast episode on Transistor, it’s time to share it with your fanbase.
But instead of writing your Broadcast emails from scratch, connect your podcast's RSS feed to ConvertKit and we’ll generate these emails for you. ✌️
Then, all you need to do is to double-check the email before sending it. You can even have the email sent out automatically if you’d like!
Let’s cover how to set this up.
Copy your podcast’s RSS feed URL
In the Transistor dashboard for your podcast, click the RSS Feed button.
A window containing your podcast’s RSS feed URL will pop up. Click the clipboard icon to copy it.
Connect the URL to ConvertKit
Log into your ConvertKit account and go to RSS under the Automate tab in the navigation.
Click the + Add feed button to create a new RSS feed.
On the Configure page, paste your podcast’s RSS feed URL into the Feed URL field:
After that, set up:
Whether you want to create single or digest emails
Whether you want your emails to send automatically
Your From address
Your email recipients
We go through these steps in more detail in our separate guide to connecting your RSS feed to ConvertKit.
Click the Continue → button to proceed to the Template page and customize your RSS feed email template.
Finally, click the Continue → button to proceed to the Status page.
Turn on the Enable automation option to activate your RSS feed connection. You’re done! 🎉
Now, whenever you publish a new public podcast episode in Transistor, ConvertKit will create a new draft Broadcast promoting that episode, ready for you to send out.
As the next step, how would you like to be able to monetize your podcast? 💰
