Once you have set up your podcasts and they sit online (my previous post outlines LybSyn) you will need to submit to iTunes. Well that’s if you want to be found on iTunes!
View your RSS feed by selecting VIEW FEED button to the right of “LybSyn Classic Feed” (rss) under DESTINATIONS > EDIT OR VIEW EXISTING. Copy the URL (web address) then open up iTunes. in iTunes select Podcasts and then iTunes Store (top of podcasts page). You will find “submit a podcast” on the far right. Once clicked on this all you will need to do is past in your copies RSS feed address.
Do not expect your podcasts to show up on iTunes right away, as an idea my timeline was as follows:
- Tuesday evening – submission
- Thursday evening- approval
- Friday morning – Searchable on iTunes (within two days of approval)
So my podcasts are fully green-lit, with the intention of releasing in the first full week of each month from now on.
