I'm 'The Podmaster', here to help you with podcasting growth advice and insights, whether you're a brand or an individual who's looking to grow your podcast and attain 'podmastery'.

My name is Neal Veglio and I've been in the podcasting game since 2001, when I became the first person in the UK to upload audio of my then radio show online, and generate an audience.

This audience followed me throughout my radio career and engaged with my various other podcasts.

But it wasn't always easy.

And when I took a career break from radio for a few years in 2007, I had to learn how to build audience without the lift of an FM frequency.

I now help other podcasters to achieve their goals through my company Podknows Podcasting.

Each episode, I'll be offering you some insights into what I've done and what I've helped my clients do with our podcasts in the hope we can help YOU increase your podcast's chances of becoming more successful!

And ensuring you can avoid the dreaded 'podfade'!

    How to get your podcast on to YouTube - the super simple way!

    YouTube Podcasting: Step-by-Step Guide to Ingesting Your Podcast into YouTubeIn this episode of "The Podmaster", I'm sharing the process of adding your podcast to YouTube using its simple ingest system.
    If you're a Libsyn customer, you probably won't need to go through any of this because they offer an easy way to add your show using their destinations page, and a similar tool is planned for Captivate customers.
    But in case you're needing to add your own podcast to YouTube, here I am walking you through it.
    To start with, you'll need to go into your show settings to obtain your RSS feed from your podcast hosting company.
    Then, make sure you're logged into your YouTube account.
    You'll be using the YouTube Studio tab to create and upload your podcast.
    It goes without saying this is audio, so if you're the kind of person that needs to follow along these steps, here's the video version.
    I'll also be sharing my views on audiograms and offering you suggestions for a far better use of your time!
