We give you the smartest tools to publish, monetize, and grow your podcast business, as well as the service you need to keep your business thriving. Plus, our specialized feature-set empowers creators to start their own podcast network and watch it flourish:

  • Cross-promote your content: In-network promotion is arguably one of the most effective tools for podcast growth, and Megaphone makes it easy with our advanced toolset. Easily promote a podcast across others within your network with an in-house ad. Utilize Megaphone’s dynamic insertion technology to target promotions as you would any other advertisement, leveraging impression caps, geotargeting, and more. Learn more about our in-network promotional capabilities here.
  • Manage large teams: Megaphone allows your network to create unlimited, password-protected logins, each with varying levels of access permissions. Separate each podcast into their own ecosystem, ensuring that users who work on one show don’t have access to the others in your network. Establish permissions at a user-level so that user platform access matches the user’s intended role, like ad ops management or billing. Learn more about user permissions here.
  • Level-up your revenue: Megaphone publishers can now tap into the Spotify Audience Network, which connects your unfilled inventory with targeted ads from some of the world’s biggest advertisers. Utilize the Spotify Audience Network as a supplement to your direct sales business or as a primary monetization lever. Learn more here.
