Branded RSS podcasting: the definitive guide
Second Edition, updated in December 2022
Whose domain is in your RSS feed: yours or somebody else’s? Of course, for your own benefit it should only be your own. And the domain registrar should be completely independent from your hosting company or hosting companies. Otherwise, the conflict of interest that would arise upon any conflict or sudden expulsion would be like hiring your spouse —a lawyer— to represent you in your own divorce.) The only way to be absolutely sure to retain existing podcast subscribers is to own your own domain and use it as the basis of your RSS feed. This ebook will explain why RSS is essential for syndication on platforms like Amazon, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, RadioPublic, Spotify, TuneIn and more, and why it must be totally under your own control. This ebook will also compare 3 options where you can accomplish all of this from a single hosting provider, including the costs, primary advantages and disadvantages of each.
