Amazon Music and Audible now host podcasts and they invite you to add yours. By adding your podcast, you will have the opportunity to reach over 55 million Amazon Music and Audible customers.
Here’s how you can export your podcast directly to Amazon Music and Audible from POST.
Create Your RSS Feed
Navigate to Settings > Integrations and then select Connect new feed in the RSS section.
To create a new RSS feed, follow the simple three-step process to input the necessary information.
Step 1: Add Basic Info
Enter all the required fields to provide the unique identifying information for your show.
Step 2: Display Details
Upload a properly-sized square show image that will display in POST and on Amazon. (Minimum 1400x1400px and maximum 3000x3000px.)
NOTE: It is important to select at least one appropriate RSS category in order for your podcast to be listed correctly with Amazon. Subcategories, if applicable, will help put your podcast in front of the right audience.
