Do you remember the late 1990s when the emergence of blogs everywhere was sudden. Do you remember their explosive growth in popularity? There’s a similar phenomenon happening today, called Podcasts. Blogs are diary-style websites that post content in reverse chronological order. Podcasts are similar in that regard. But instead of users visiting your website, they subscribe to your content. Usually via a podcasting platform, such as Apple Podcasts (iTunes), Spotify or YouTube.
Blogs also support subscriptions, via RSS. This technology never gained user traction for blogs in the same way podcasts have. The complexity of RSS and the lack of content discovery has made it popular among only a select few. Those tech-savvy people who read a lot.
Podcasts use the same RSS specification first made popular for blogs. The difference is that the medium has changed from text to audio and video. Podcast discoverability and usability is better than blog subscriptions via RSS. Podcasts are thus much easier for users to get started with. Pre-installed podcast apps comes with every smartphone sold today. Podcasts are a frictionless experience only one tap away!
According to survey results published by the Statista Research Department, 37% of the U.S. population listened to a podcast within a month of answering in 2020. The number of U.S. listeners has trippled over the last decade! Podcasts is not only popular in the U.S., it’s a global phenomenon. There is an estimated 31.5m podcast consumers in Mexico, 15.6m in the UK and 20% of Germans listen also.Podopi is an automated system that distributes your blog- or website content on podcasting platforms.
