So yesterday I made one of my podcasts live on iTunes And I faced a lot of difficulties it took me complete Like like it took me an entire day to have my podcast set up and completely make it live and submit it to Apple Hi, this is digital pratik and in this video I’m going to show you that how you can start a podcast in the next 25 minutes And you can send it to Apple for a review and make it live within the next 24 hours Alright so as you can see this is the podcast which I recently released on itunes digital marketing podcast practical digital marketing tips and Such kind of things so I have released two episodes as of now are which is gonna be updated every single day so every single day and gonna come up with three to five to ten minutes up to a little bit about practical advices on digital marketing which I personally would be applying on my blog digital marketing for free com so In this video, I’m gonna actually start another podcast which is actually my own podcast which I am upcoming with which is related to motivational stuff which is Addicted 2 awesome podcast series, so I’m gonna actually practically do it step by step in this video And I’m gonna make it live on iTunes. Just like this one all right on top of that. I’m also gonna show you that How does it look on soundcloud so this is how it looks like on soundcloud? So I’m gonna actually use the SoundCloud website with a free account and then I’m gonna sync my soundcloud audios along with the iTunes so that is how I’m gonna make my podcast live on iTunes with the help of SoundCloud so basically, SoundCloud I’ll be using it to host my audios right so it’s completely free you’re gonna upload everything for free no single charge Everything for free in this video, so let’s start and let’s go ahead with the SoundCloud account force so what I’m gonna Do is I’m gonna actually create a free account on SoundCloud, which I have already done? Just like this one so you can just visit SoundCloud And register for a free account just like a Facebook account once you do that what you have to do is you have to simply go ahead and click on profile over here So right over here, it would be something like this, which when set up We will look like this one all right, so this is the header image all right, the one which is empty over here, then this is the Cover pic you can see it’s just like a Facebook Cover pick, which you can upload over here So this is like upload header image, and this is like update image And if you just move your cursor over here the image size is at least two four eight zero cross five two zero Right so that is what you have to use now I’m gonna use this same cover image for the header image for this one, so I’m going to click on upload edit image and The header image which I had was I guess this one, so let’s just open that up Yep, that’s the one I’m gonna click on save And Bingo, so it is uploaded over here, then I’m gonna upload this Image update image now this image make sure guys this particular image is gonna. Be listed as the Artwork of iTunes so let me just open up iTunes and your podcast so this particular image Which you are seeing right over here is known as the artwork right? It’s just called an artwork You can just basically say a profile picture for your podcast in iTunes so this image is gonna come up from the image, which you upload over here, so make sure you upload a image which you want it as the listing or Basically you can say a profile picture for your podcast on iTunes So the size for this is 1400 cross 1400 make sure you have 1400 least 1400 cross 1400 pixels or Maximum 3000 cross 3,000 right you can actually Google it it’s the same, so let’s say iTunes oops iTunes ITunes I choose art work size So it will show up 1400 cross 1400 pixels or Max – max 3000 cross 3,000 so I already have one image Created for myself for this particular podcast, which is this one, so I’m gonna upload that Oops yeah, that’s the one so see that is way it hampers your Image so what it says is you see the circle would be like this Right the circle would be like this and this is a little bit cropped image now I don’t care because most of the times when people see I want them to see the iTunes image now in iTunes. It is square right in iTunes It is square so I’m fine with this particular thing getting cut off But if you are not if you are not fine with that make sure you have something which is like between the circles So I’m gonna actually do that right now, and I’m gonna upload one image, which is not being cropped right now, so just stadium All right, so now as you can see I have this Image changed, and it is now inside this circle right, so I’m gonna click on C So this is how it’s looking like and this will be coming up as the iTunes artwork right over here, right?

Category let’s see what category it would be For that what I will do is I will reverse engineer I’ll go to iTunes and I’ll search for let’s say daily Positive podcast let’s search for that Oops this is the one which is in my computer, so I’m going to search for daily Positive or Simply positive, let’s search for simply positive School of greatness something like that store Alright so all these are positive podcasts.

Mentioning the same thing in the same format again again, so you have to be a little bit different when you are posting content That is the same content on various different platforms, so bring some uniqueness bring some variety in platforms, and that’s it you will and There I go I added all my platforms and another thing which I will add is I will add No there to be Save Changes This digital pratik why is it?

I have this format for every podcast alright so I’ve made this podcast format where I always mention this so you can like like to refer and copy So I have also referred a couple of podcasts from which I have taken a couple of things and then I have added and tweaked And this particular thing is something which is coming from my youtube channel so I most of the times write this and That’s it for this particular podcast Start your blog today blah blah blah. Don’t forget to Like comment share subscribe Write and then you can choose whether your shared on Facebook Twitter Tumblr blah blah blah Which I don’t want right now So then next you have to upload one image, but before that let’s go into permissions now make sure guys for this to get uploaded on your ITunes which I’ll talk about in a while you have to do something over here in the podcast connect Dot Apple comm which I’ll talk about in a while But before that what you have to do is you have to enable Downloads and include in RSS feed now if you don’t select these two things then you will be able to send it to iTunes This this particular thing that is some cloud won’t be connected with your iTunes so make sure you select these two in the permissions and click on save and This is upload complete It says upload complete, but we haven’t added the particular thing so what you have to do is go to your track all right click on more click on edit Let’s update the image So I’m going to keep the same image everywhere Right, this is the image which I want, or I actually can do this first image, which I had alright So then it looks a little bit different because this is not a square. This is not circle this is square so I have this and bingo, I’m all set so I’m gonna save changes and My podcast is up and running on This is up and running you can actually hear that right now Which will help You Alright, so it’s up and running on soundcloud now the only thing which I have to do is how do I? Feed this into iTunes automatically so that I do not have to upload or do anything in iTunes So now you have to visit one website, which is Podcast Connect podcasts connect Apple calm now Don’t worry about this link this link would be right below this video in the description box so Once you are over here you have to you need an Apple ID alright you need an apple app store ID so just create an account and That’s it, then you have to simply click on this plus sign and Right over here where it says RSS feed URL go back to your What do you say SoundCloud and go back to your three dots settings content and Right over here. It says RSS feed so copy this Go back to iTunes podcast and Paste it over here once you paste it over here click on validate now. If everything goes well Everything is correct. It will give you something like this status is prepared for submission Description is something like this which you mentioned over there And the title is addicted to awesome daily positive podcast category society and culture Website link is this all rights reserved episode number one is live so things like that Alright, so this is up and running now the only thing which you have to do is you’ll have to wait for Apple to give you a DC message but before that you have to actually submit it so if everything goes well if they have validated Sadness is prepared for submission, so you can click on submit Once you click on submit. Let’s see what Apple gives us So it says podcast successfully submitted for review now guys most of the times I have seen people getting an error over here and which is a common error they get an error Because they don’t set up this artwork under the pixel size of 1400 cross 1400 Try it out guys. If you don’t have 1400 cross 1400 pixels or Like like if you have less than that size you would be able to successfully submit it over here You will get an error and Apple would display that error that your artwork is not up to the size and blah blah blah So make sure you have 1400 1400 or max – max 3000 cross 3,000 pixels and once you do that you will successfully be able to submit to your podcast for review and Apple will send you an email once the review process is complete now this might take up to three days But most of the times now for this particular podcast it was Within like 24 hours. It was within less than 24 hours So what you will get is you will get an email which would look something like this one where it says The subject line is iTunes stored podcast created successfully notification and you will say Dear podcast owner your podcast feed blah blah blah was successfully added and is now under review alright And it would come from the iTunes Store team now once. This is approved once. This is reviewed, and if everything goes well if The Apple guys those Apple guys are reviewing and sucks. Fully in doing it and uploading it and making it live on iTunes You’ll receive another email within less than 24 hours, or it might take some more days depending on your Podcast so once you do that and once it is live you’ll get another notification email which is something like this one The subject line would be iTunes podcast approved Notification so as you can see my digital marketing podcast was approved before one day only so as of now. I’m recording this video It’s September 16th 2017 and yesterday it got approved so your part podcast located at blah blah blah has been approved so and so so and so and Once it is done. It would be Live on your iTunes alright, so that’s it for this video.
