There are many ways to grow your podcast, including email, advertising, being a guest on other podcasts, and more.
Yet another simple way is making people aware of your show through social media - and what better way to do that by making it easy for listeners to connect with you on their social network of choice?
By connecting your social media accounts, your Captivate website will display them in the header, ready to click through and connect with! 😁
How to add your social media accounts
When you're logged into your Captivate dashboard, click on the Marketing tab in the left hand menu. This will open up your Captivate Podcast Marketing Suite.
You'll see three tabs at the top:
- Podcast Links
- Calls to Action
- Sponsor Kit
Stay on the Podcast Links tab, and scroll down until you see the Social Links section.
Here, you can enter the following information:
- Facebook Page URL
- Facebook Group URL
- Twitter handle
- Instagram username
- YouTube URL
Once you enter your social media links, click Update Marketing Settings. 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!
Nice and easy!
Note: Your social links will be used throughout the platform and wherever Captivate represents your podcast externally, such as on your own WordPress website via Captivate Sync™.
