How To Create A Podcast RSS Feed
It’s important for your listeners to stay up-to-date on all your new podcast episodes. Your fans don’t want to miss anything. The die-hard ones will religiously check your channel to make sure they haven’t missed an episode, but many simply won’t take the time. People are busy and consume so much online content that it’s easy to be forgotten!
When your fans subscribe to your podcast RSS feed they’ll see updates in real time in their summary display. They’ll visit their feed, see what’s new, and click on your latest episode.
It’s your job as a content producer who wants followers to make yourself easy to find. In fact, you should make that task as easy as possible, or you’ll risk seeing your numbers dwindle.
The bottom line is that you need to create an RSS feed for your podcast so your listeners can easily subscribe.
If you know how to code (most of us don’t), you can create an RSS feed by using XML to declare the channel, title of your feed, links to your channel, and more. You then will need to add a new item each time you create a new episode so that your episode will show up in your readers’ feeds.
Or you could use a feed builder and host your podcast on RSS.com to create your podcast RSS feed. The steps are simple, and you don’t have to know how to code.
