It takes just 3 clicks and 3 minutes to get all set up with Acast Open.
Because we have had so many podcasters switch from other hosting services to Acast Open, we've built tools to make the process as simple and painless as possible.
Specifically, we've built a smart tool to fetch everything—your audio files, episode notes, images, keywords, the whole kitchen sink—and bring those onto Acast Open's platform. And, most importantly, you won't lose any of your hard-earned subscribers either (breathe a welcome sigh of relief there).
The first screen you'll see on Acast Open is this—two BIG buttons—one of which says Import Existing Show.
- If your podcast is on iTunes, simply start typing in its name in the search bar, then click it. (Be sure to type its name exactly, capital letters and all—the iTunes search is a bit tricky.)
If your podcast is not on iTunes, enter your RSS feed URL in the input field on the right.
2. Follow the instructions to redirect your podcast feed from your old host to Acast Open. You will get customized guidance on how to do this, and it's usually very simple. Get extra help from our Help Center or just chat with us for assistance.
3. Set up your podcast for distribution on iTunes and other apps. If your podcast is already on iTunes, then the redirect step above will take care of this, and there's nothing further you need to do.
Congrats! You're all set.
