Foreword: To activate broadcasting, your podcast must have at least one publicly published episode. If your podcast only has scheduled or draft episodes, you cannot start broadcasting, regardless of the platform. To learn more, check out “How does my podcast get distributed?”.
Here are the steps to activate your show’s distribution on TuneIn directly from Ausha (we make this process easy for you!) :
Connect to your Ausha account.
In the main menu, click Settings.
In the left-side menu, click Broadcasting.
Head to the Popular in the USA category, then to the TuneIn box and click Broadcast.
After clicking Broadcast, a new dialog will appear and you will be asked: “Is your podcast already on TuneIn?”. If your podcast has never broadcast on TuneIn, select No.
Note: If your podcast has already broadcast on TuneIn, head to this article to verify that you have completed all the required steps to ensure a successful transfer to Ausha.
After answering No to the previous question, you can access the step-by-step tutorial explaining how to setup your podcast’s broadcast on TuneIn. Click “Start” to jump into the tutorial and follow each step to the letter! 🤓
In summary, in this tutorial (that we recommend you read from top to bottom), you will be asked to:
👉 1. Head to the TuneIn website to fill out this form: https://help.tunein.com/contact/add-podcast-S19TR3Sdf.
👉 2. Fill in the form with the following required elements: your email, podcast name, language, and RSS feed address (See this article for more info: "How do I find my RSS feed?").
👉 3. Accept TuneIn’s Terms of Service and confirm the form by clicking "Send Email".
After following these steps, your podcast will be validated by the TuneIn team within 3-4 days (average waiting period, may be longer at certain times of the year – see this article for more info: "What average delays can you expect on your first publication?").
When your podcast has been validated, you will receive an email from TuneIn with the link to your podcast’s page on the platform (don’t forget to check in the spam folder).
Once your podcast has broadcast on TuneIn, don’t forget to manually enter your TuneIn listen link in your Ausha broadcast settings.
To do so: head to Settings > Broadcast > TuneIn > Is your podcast already on TuneIn? > Yes > Scroll to the top and click Next in the blue bubble to go to the Listen link field. Then click on Edit > Paste the link to your TuneIn page and click Save.
Now when you publish a new episode on Ausha, it will be automatically published on TuneIn without you having to do anything else! 🥳
Note: Broadcast on TuneIn is not always instantaneous, each episode may show up after a delay of several hours (up to 1 day), due to TuneIn’s technical inner workings and how it updates with new content (the delay may vary from one episode to another).
