One of the worst mistakes that you can make as a new podcaster is not setting yourself up to success via your back catalog.
Designing some quality, long-term calls-to-action for your show gives you the opportunity to start building an engaged listener base from the get-go.
Update: Captivate podcasters can monetize their shows with monthly subscriptions (Memberships) and one-off donations (Tips) from the platform for free! Receive messages from listeners when they tip, to use as additional content on your podcast. With Memberships, tiers are fully customizable, set up as many tiers as you wish, plus you decide the titles, prices and benefits/perks. Also, due to Captivate’s integrated nature, easily set episodes as early ‘windowed’ access or member-only when publishing at a click of a button.
