1. Retrieving your Current RSS Feed URL
A podcast RSS feed is a link that contains all of the information of your podcast and updates listening apps and subscribers when new episodes are uploaded, automatically adding the new episodes into their feed.
Your Current RSS Feed URL can be found in whichever site your podcast is hosted by. In this example, our podcast was hosted by Anchor, but this step will be similar in the site your podcast is hosted.
To find your RSS Feed, follow the guides for the site that your Podcast is hosted in:
2. Importing your Podcast onto Kajabi
Once you have located your current RSS Feed URL, the next step is to import your podcast onto Kajabi by entering the RSS Feed URL into Kajabi's podcast importer tool.
To import your podcast into Kajabi:
- Open the Products tab from the dashboard.
- Select Podcasts.
- Click Import Podcast.
- Enter your current RSS Feed URL
- Click Import:
Kajabi will then ask you to confirm that the podcast being imported is correct based on Artwork, Details, and Episodes.
Once your podcast has been imported, you can click into your Podcast from inside the Podcasts tab. On your Podcast's page, you will find that Kajabi has imported your episodes and data; including:
- Audio File
- Publish Date
- Brand Colors
- Show Notes
- Transcription TXT File
3. Setting Up Distribution
Upon Import, Kajabi creates a new RSS Feed URL for your Podcast. But, directories (aka listening apps like Apple podcast, Google podcast, and Spotify) will still be pulling your podcast from your old host. So, the next step is to tell listening apps that you have changed your host to Kajabi by redirecting your RSS feed.
To set up Distribution:
- Click Distribution in the top menu of the podcasts page.
Here, you will find your Podcast RSS feed link, which is a link that contains a summary of updates from your website.
To set up the distribution of your podcasts with different directories, you will need to provide the RSS feed link that kajabi has offered.
Because each directory has its own unique process for connection, kajabi has provided the instructions for Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Spotify. Follow these instructions to connect to these directories.
Once you have successfully connected, Kajabi will then automatically add an icon link on your podcast's page, allowing your members to access your podcast via the directory.
Most Podcast platforms pull from these three major platforms, which means that your podcast will most likely be available on any platform of your choosing! It may just take a few days to populate.
