One of the greatest things about podcasting, is that there are so many places you can promote your show for free. By adding your show to podcast directories like TuneIn, your show instantly becomes available to millions of new listeners.
Here’s how to submit your podcast to TuneIn and get listed on Alexa and Amazon devices.
Step 1. Sign Up for a TuneIn Account
Step 2. Go to TuneIn's Podcasters Page
Step 3. Submit Your Show's Details
Next, add your contact info. and submit your show’s details including your podcast RSS feed, accept their terms and conditions and click “Send Email.”
Step 4. Wait for Approval
It can take as little as a few days or up to two weeks to receive an email notice from TuneIn that your podcast has been added to their directory.
We received our notice of approval approximately three days after submitting our request. The notice stated that our show would be live within 24 hours, and sure enough, it was!
Now when someone opens the TuneIn app on Alexa, they should be able to find “The RSS Podcasting Tutorials Show” on their favorite Amazon device. We tested it out, and found our podcast when we said, “Alexa, find RSS Podcasting Tutorials Show on TuneIn.” While it was a very specific inquiry, we must admit it was cool seeing our show come up on our screen when we said the request into our Amazon FireStick!
