Sharing Sermon Audio
Churches have been sharing sermon audio for a long, long time. Do you remember tape ministries? I do. I grew up in a small Baptist church and after each service, the sermon tapes were available for purchase for a couple of bucks. Someone sat in the back, recorded the audio and then produced the tapes, and eventually CDs. Okay, trip down memory lane over. We're now in 2020. Podcasts have taken off over the last decade, and have exploded within the last 2 years. Millions of people listen to podcasts each month. Many churches have already jumped on the podcast game, but there's always the latecomers. I'm here for you.
Where you COULD pay for a podcast service in order to host your shows, you don't really have to. Here's why: there are 100% FREE podcast hosts out there. The primary reason you need a host is to have have place to store your audio that generates an RSS feed that gets submitted to podcast players, like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, etc.
The most important things you gain by using a paid service are analytics and customization for your audio embeds, in my opinion. Podcast hosting companies will offer more features, if you decide to pay.
So here's the list of FREE podcast hosts (that I know of):
I've used both of these hosting companies and haven't run into any issues whatsoever. You get unlimited uploads and space. If you're simply posting weekly sermon audio, then they'll be a great fit for you.
The process is simple.
So you're asking "What's the catch?". The catch is, these free podcast hosts are hoping that you'll sign up to monetize your show and make a commission off of finding advertisers. If you get to the point where you have enough listeners to monetize with advertisers, kudos to you! You're not hooked into some content ownership contract, you can move your episodes wherever and whenever you want.
