Growing your podcast can be hard, which is where Captivate comes in. After all, we are the world's only growth-oriented podcast host! πŸ˜„

To help you grow your show, we have a whole host of resources, including marketing insights from industry experts, exclusive tips in our private Facebook group, weekly Q&A's, and much, much more!

We also have a dedicated Promotion section within your Captivate dashboard that offers quick, simple, and effective ways to add links to your show on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Overcast, and Pocket Casts. We also make it easy for listeners to follow you on your podcast's social media accounts!

Marketing Links - Directory Links

The Directory Links area is where you can optimize your Captivate-powered website, podcast player and Single Promo Link.

By adding the links to your show on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts, these links will appear on your Captivate website, alongside Overcast, Pocket Casts, and your RSS feed.

Additionally, when you use the Captivate player for your show, these links will appear under the Subscribe option on your player. Sweet! 😁

Not only that, but if you use the Single Promo Link (and why wouldn't you?!), Captivate will automatically create a simple yet stylish landing page that you can drive listeners to.

This fully responsive landing page lets listeners choose their preferred app to listen on, and takes them through to that podcast app when they click on an icon - tracking the clicks and analytics on those links.

Marketing Links - Social Links

In the Social Links area, you can add:

  • Facebook Page URL

  • Facebook Group URL

  • Twitter handle

  • Instagram username

  • YouTube URL

Once you enter your social media links, the icons for each network will appear in the top right of your Captivate website header, making it super easy for your listeners to click through and connect with you online!
