5 of the best ways to grow your podcast with Reason FM
Claimed your podcast on Reason FM? Congratulations! It’s now time to start using our platform to grow your audience. We’ve put some tips together to help you get the most out of the features that we’ve designed with you in mind. The best thing about these methods? They are all free.
Each week we chose podcasts to feature on our app and website. Your podcast could be one of the first things people see when they open Reason FM! To be in with the chance of getting featured, you will need to complete a few easy steps outlined here. Once you’ve followed our quick guide, get in touch with us at [email protected]!
Share your personal link
If you have a Reason profile, then you also have a personal link unique to you. You can find yours on the app by tapping the settings button in the top right corner of your page and choosing ‘Share profile link’. By sharing this link on your socials (like Facebook and Instagram) you can let you friends, family and followers know where they can find you. This helps to build your personal follower base within the app and creates that initial buzz around your content.
Commenting is a great way to generate genuine engagement and to grow your listeners organically. Starting a conversation in your comments section allows you to build an active community around your content. You could ask your listeners a question, tag your subscribers or even ask for feedback. Once you’ve got replies, you can continue the dialogue and start to build deeper connections with your audience. It’s also a great idea to share the love and comment on other’s podcasts, perhaps highlighting a favourite moment or offering advice.
Reason is a community and we love to reward users who interact with each other! When you connect with others on the platform, (though subscribing, commenting, tagging etc) you will earn Karma, which you will see appear at the top of your profile. The more karma you have, the more influence your upvotes have!
Create good cover art
We have a blog post all about this one which you can find on our blog page! Strong cover art helps your podcast to stand out to potential listeners and makes you instantly recognisable to dedicated followers.
