It seems impossible to manage a podcast solo. Perhaps you work with a team of pundits who would be glad to get more involved? Perhaps you manage a podcast on behalf of a client? Either way, Podcastics give you the opportunity to put your team forward.
Perhaps you are the mastermind of your crew, hence your teammates always relying on you to manage the website, upload episodes and analyse the stats. Well, Podcastics is here to make things change, as it has all you need to keep your hand on your show while entrusting some tasks and responsibilities to your partners.
But let’s start from the start, i.e. the birth of your podcast on Podcastics. You have created an account on our platform, you have just picked the best subscription for you, and you have either created or imported your podcast following our five-step guide.
Now you should register or update fundamental elements, such as your podcast description, its cover, its web site, and its authors. Obviously, authors are our conversation topic here; Podcastics helps you promote your partners by managing authorisations and potential client accounts.
Even though you are the leader of the project, you do not have to manage all by yourself. On Podcastics, you can promote your teammates to Admin, Manager and Analyst:
- The Admin has the same superpowers as the podcast owner but cannot delete the podcast nor manage the subscription.
- The Manager can: modify the podcast details (but not its authorisations); add, modify, and delete episodes; access stats, RSS feed (without managing the links to Apple Podcasts, Spotify, etc.), audio players (but not their customisation options), the website (without customising it either), etc. He/she can also add, modify, and delete posts, but cannot manage monetisation options.
- As for the Analyst, he can only access the podcast stats.
Managing client accounts
Usually, the podcast author and its manager on Podcastics are the same person. However, it is not always the case; perhaps you are in charge of the edition of a client’s podcast yourself.
In this case, you only need to ask your client to create (it is easy and free-of-charge) his/her own Podcastics account. You will then register this account in the author box, so its name appears instead of your own name on the podcast website.
If you ever write a comment on the web site in the future, then it will display the client’s name. It will be the same if a comment is posted by another Admin or Manager.
The little extra: When an episode is published, and if your contributors own a Podcastics account, you can register their names or nicknames in a specific field, and mention their respective roles (host, pundit, special guest, etc.). The team members will then appear on the episode web page, and the visitors will be able to send them a private message.
