If you want your audience to listen to lots of your podcast episodes, create a podcast playlist! This will help them find all the shows that they want to listen to and ensure they don’t miss any content! 

What is a podcast playlist? 

A podcast playlist is a group of podcasts that you can create with your episodes that all have something in common. 👯‍♀️ 

For example, if you talk about a lot of different subjects in your podcast, you can create a playlist of certain episodes that relate to each other more specifically.

This makes it easier for your audience to find the episodes that will interest them the most, and increase your podcast downloads. 🤩

Organizing your podcast playlist by episode subjects is a great strategy. Additionally, if you’re looking to share selected episodes with a specific audience without showcasing your entire catalog, playlists can be incredibly useful.

Furthermore, creating playlists of previously released episodes can shine a new light on them, bringing them back into the spotlight for new and existing listeners alike. Keep reading for a specific example of this! 👀 

How can you create a podcast playlist with Ausha? 

It’s super easy to create a podcast playlist with Ausha! 

All you have to do is go to “Episodes” then click on “Playlists”. 

Then click “New Playlist”.

After that, you can enter a title for your podcast playlist. Basically something that will say what all these episodes are about in a few words.

Then write the description for your podcast playlist where you’ll describe the content of the playlist, and what all the episodes have in common. 📝 

You can also add an image for the podcast playlist. It could be similar to your podcast show cover, but with a new “twist” that will represent your specific podcast playlist. 🖼️ 

After you’ve created your podcast playlist, you’ll be able to find it on your podcast website that’s been generated by Ausha. 💻

There, you and your audience will be able to see the podcast playlist and listen to the different episodes in it, directly on the website. 

You’ll also be able to create a SmartPlayer for your podcast playlist, which allows you to integrate your episodes directly, into blog posts, articles, or on your personal website! ▶️

That way it’s super easy for your audience to listen to your new podcast playlist! 🎧 

You can also copy the link for your podcast playlist when you’re on your Ausha-generated website, which allows you to share your playlist on social media, in group chats… really anywhere you want! 

Podcast playlist example: 

Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about the example that I mentioned before! 😃 

So here it is: 

Basically, here at Ausha we have our podcast “Tips” (I hope you’ve listened to it by the way). 😉 

And every week we release a new episode that will give you tips for how to grow your podcast. 

BUT, we also offer the same show in French! 🇫🇷 

And over the summer, the French version of Tips is taking a little break from recording, so they’ve decided to create a podcast playlist of all the most important “Tips” episodes so that listeners will be able to launch their podcasts by the end of the summer. 🏖️ 

It’s called the Ausha Summer Replay 2022. They’re re-releasing previous episodes of “Tips” so that their audience still has content to listen to, even if they’re not producing new episodes right now. 

Such a great idea! And you can do the same, depending on your podcasting goals. 

But don’t forget, the US version of “Tips” is still being released every week so check it out! 👂 And for your convenience, here’s the “Tips” podcast trailer using the SmartPlayer that I mentioned before: 

To sum up: 

Creating a podcast playlist can be super handy for many different situations. 

For example, re-releasing past episodes to try and keep your listeners interested, or helping your audience find the specific episodes that would interest them the most. 

And it’s super easy with Ausha, so why not create a podcast playlist (or a few)! 💜 

Your audience will be happy to see all of your episodes organized and easy to navigate through! 🗺️
