Podfan is trying something new— and trying to solve one of the core problems of podcasting at the same time. Monetising.
Pod fan allows you to offer premium audio to your listeners via monthly or annual subscriptions packages. The best part is you have full control on the price you set. The payments are made directly into your Stripe account but you can also accept donations.
Discovering new podcasts is an old problem of podcasting, and something the industry has tried to solve many ways — with social podcast apps, an untold number of recommendation blogs, charts and category algorithms. But none of these solutions get to the root of the discoverability problem.
Podfan offers a solution to this problem with their new product: the Super Sampler.
Enter the teaser episode
Do movie producers expect you to watch a movie based on the title alone? No, they distribute movie trailers! Why shouldn’t podcasts?
Movies are long, and so are podcasts. Time is the biggest obstacle preventing listeners from discovering a new podcast. With a teaser episode, you only need a few minutes or less to get a feel for the podcast. Listeners just get a taste!
