Share and embed your podcast

The best way to grow your audience is to share your podcast! Start with friends and family, and think about other groups of people that might be interested in what your podcast is about.

You can always share your podcast from the Anchor app or from your Anchor dashboard.

What does embedding your podcast do?:

Embedding your podcast or episode allows you to input coding language into your personal website's code base, which inputs an episode player right into your website! This will allow anyone to listen to your episode or podcast directly on your website.

Just copy and paste the embed code into your website's code base and save the changes! If you have any trouble, reach out to your website domain directly and they can help as needed.

Wordpress users - You may need a plugin like this one to utilize Anchor embeds. 

Please note: If you embed your podcast’s audio on an external website, we strongly recommend not preloading or autoplaying the audio. This helps keep your podcast analytics as accurate as possible.
