One of the main reasons we built Podpage was to strengthen the podcasters/listener relationship. And the best way to do that is to make it a two-way relationship. To help with that, we've previously added commenting, contact forms, email collection.
Today, we're adding Voicemails.
Podcasters have known this for years, but spoken word is usually way more compelling than writing. Your audience sees and hears you on all these platforms, but can only interact with you through text replies.
Now they can share their personality with you through voice.
Podpage is excited to announce that every single Podpage (free and paid) gives listeners the ability to leave you voicemails! There is no extra cost for this, it just comes with your Podpage membership.
🎙 Check it out! Go to your website and you'll see a small microphone icon in the lower right. Click it!
📞 Voicemails can be up to 30 seconds in length (120 seconds for Pro users).
💌 You will get an email every time someone leaves a voicemail. It will also be available in your inbox, which is in a new Ping Voicemail section on the dashboard.
🎨 If you'd like to customize the text and colors, or 🚫 turn this feature off, log into Podpage and click Voicemail on the left. Then go to Widget Settings.
All voicemails can be downloaded and included in your podcast. Some podcasters are using this feature to ask users to leave their opinion, and they play them on the following episode.
Tell us how you'll be using this feature, and we hope this brings you closer to your listening audience!
