Helpcast – Podcast Pages (beta)

We've set up a new way to deliver your podcast episodes to your subscribers and potential fans without depending on iTunes or podcast directories.

How to set up your podcast page:

The first thing you need to do if you want to have control over your podcast comments section is link your Facebook account with us. You can do that in the "My Account" tab depicted to the left.First of all, if you don't have a Facebook account, I strongly recommend you create one since Facebook is an excellent asset for building a following. Also, you will not be able to moderate your comments if you don't have a Facebook page.

Navigate to the section labeled "Facebook Account" and click the "Link Facebook Account" button depicted below. This will take you to a secure Facebook page that asks permission for us to access your account information for our application. If this was successful, you will see your Facebook User ID above the button. You now have moderation privileges for your podcast comments section!

Now that your comments section is set up you can go to your "Podcasts" section depicted left. This will bring up a list of the podcasts you've made.

Select the podcast that you want to make a podcast page for and navigate to the "Podcast Page (BETA)" tab depicted below.

You will see a link to the first and last podcast episode on this page. We didn't include a link to all your podcast episodes because some of your podcasts number in the thousands. You can, however, navigate to any of those individual episode pages through your podcast page, so check it out!

If you ever want to remove the comments section from your podcast, you can click the radio button at the bottom of the page.

 

 

 

 

 

We've fully optimized the URLs for your individual podcast episode pages for posting to Facebook, so go out there and post your audio and video on Facebook! Also, feel free to post your podcast to our Facebook page!
