Starting and growing a podcast takes work and many podcasters eventually want to monetize their shows and make money. 

It makes sense that many newer podcasters start out using Anchor because it’s 100% free. So how does Anchor make money giving away free service?

If you monetize and your show gets popular, you’ll be paying significantly more to use their “free” service than you would with another host like where you have more control, options, and features.

📈 Get More Data About Your Listeners with Podcast Analytics's Podcast Analytics

With the no-cost offer Anchor provides, you get limited analytics, preventing you from gaining all the insights you need to grow your show.

If you choose to allow Anchor to distribute your show to the major podcast directories, it will block access to additional stats in your Apple Podcasts dashboard. Not cool! 😤
