Why You Should Use a Custom Bio Link for Your Podcast

In episode 17, I shared how to make it easy to follow your podcast with a single follow link. But you can go one step further by creating a custom bio link that allows you to promote certain episodes, newsletters, merchandise, and more.

You're listening to One Minute Podcast Tips.

Speaker:

I'm your host, Danny Brown.

Speaker:

And each episode brings you snack-sized tips

Speaker:

to be a better podcaster.

Speaker:

And now, this week's episode.

Speaker:

When it comes to growing your podcast,

Speaker:

making it easy to follow is one of the best ways to do that,

Speaker:

which is why in episode 17 I shared some options that are available for that.

Speaker:

However, that's just for the podcast.

Speaker:

But another way is to use a custom bio link.

Speaker:

So for your social media profiles, instead of just having one link that goes to your podcast website,

Speaker:

or maybe Apple or Spotify,

Speaker:

a custom bio link allows you to not only share your podcast,

Speaker:

but certain episodes, a newsletter, and more.

Speaker:

And depending on what bio link software you use,

Speaker:

you can even embed episodes and videos.

Speaker:

Again, making it super easy for listeners to check out your show before following it.

Speaker:

And the good thing is, there's a few options out there,

Speaker:

so you can choose the one that's best for you.

Speaker:

There's Linktree, there's BioLink,

Speaker:

there's a new one I'm checking out at the moment

Speaker:

called PodBio, and others.

Speaker:

And I'll be sure to leave links in the show notes

Speaker:

for you to check them out.

Speaker:

The great thing with custom bio links

Speaker:

is you're not limited to just one podcast.

Speaker:

If you've got multiple shows, you can add them all there,

Speaker:

highlight popular episodes, and more.

Speaker:

It's a great way to share as much detail as you can

Speaker:

about your podcast with just one link.

Speaker:

Until the next time, happy podcasting.

Speaker:

(clapping)

Speaker:

Thanks for listening.
