How do I MAKE THE PODCAST I CLAIMED A BONUS PODCAST AGAIN?

It’s super easy! To take advantage of bonus podcasts after the initial 2-week claim period, we require that you include a Podcoin callout in your podcast on the following schedule and that you also post about Podcoin across your social media channels.

Each episode containing a Podcoin callout will entitle you to another 2 weeks of featuring! Here’s the schedule:

  • First 3 episodes: 30-60 sec long host-read mid-roll

  • Next 3 episodes: 20-30 sec long host read pre-, post-, or mid-roll (you choose!)

  • Next 3 episodes: 30-60 sec long host-read mid-roll

  • Next 3 episodes: 20-30 sec long host read pre-, post-, or mid-roll (you choose!)

  • Repeats endlessly :)

STEP ONE: INCLUDE A PODCOIN Ad SPOT IN your podcast

We’ve included below some samples. The important thing is it sounds natural to you and feels like a personal endorsement from you and includes these key points:

  • Like [YOUR-PODCAST-NAME]? Well, the Podcoin app pays you to listen to this podcast and every podcast. It’s the podcast player that pays.

  • Just get the Podcoin app on iPhone or Android. It’s free and super easy to use.

  • You can use the Podcoin you earn to claim gift cards or donate to charity

  • It literally is amazing. It turns your podcast listening into charity, or if you like just get some Amazon or Starbucks gift cards

  • Go give the Podcoin app a try today.

Here is a sample script, but you are free to make something work using the points above:

Hey everybody, I really do hope you love <INSERT_PODCAST_NAME>. Did you know that you can actually get PAID just for listening to this podcast. I know it sounds insane but it’s true. We just discovered this free new app called Podcoin, and it literally pays you to listen to podcasts. Here’s how it works … you listen to podcasts and you earn Podcoin while you listen. Then you turn that Podcoin in for gift cards at places like Amazon or Starbucks … or if you’re a good person you could even donate that Podcoin to charity. The more you listen, the more you earn.

So here’s what you do, download the app right now on iPhone orAndroid, and I have a special code for you!  Simply use our code <INSERT_CODE> and you’ll get 300 Podcoin just for signing up.  And if you listen to enough of us on there, you can get a cappuccino at Starbucks or an Amazon gift card on us. So go ahead and go listen to this podcast or virtually any podcast on Podcoin and sign up with code <INSERT_CODE>.

 I swear it’ll change the way you listen to podcasts.

You can condense this message for the pre- and post-roll options by following the feedback above, but only after first running 3 mid-roll ads.

StEp Two: Post in social Media

When you claimed your podcast we sent you a sticker to use in your social media that includes your code. Please post that image and some text to your fans and followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You may customize the post as you see fit, if consistent with the best practices on this page.

Text: Fans of SHOWNAME, get the Podcoin app, it’s the only podcast player that actually PAYS you to listen. It’s legit. You can even turn your podcast time into charity you like. It’s the only way I listen now!

Here is the sticker you should have received, excepts with your code name.

Step three: notify us

Once you’ve published your RSS feed containing the ad and confirmed that you posted your social media posts, be sure to notify us so we can confirm the ad and the posts and set your podcast to a bonus podcast for 2 weeks.

That’s all there is to it. We can’t wait to see your podcast at the top of Podcoin!
