Metronome launches starter plan for podcasters

PRESS RELEASE · Malaysia ·

Web application provider Metronome has launched a Starter Plan for its podcast landing page service. The first in a series of product plans aimed at helping podcasters grow their listener base online, the Metronome Starter Plan includes features designed to make it easy for a new listener to engage with a podcast.

Unlike general-purpose tools like Linktree and bit.ly, Metronome is built specifically for podcasts - with features designed for podcast listeners, all available within one click.

Metronome landing pages work on both mobile and desktop browsers. When a potential listener clicks on a Metronome link, they are taken to a landing page showcasing the podcast’s cover artwork with its latest episode preloaded. A built-in audio player lets them quickly listen to the show, and an episode browser lets them choose past episodes to listen to.

“One of the key challenges for podcasters is there’s no way to know which application a listener uses to listen to podcasts”, says Faiz Fadzil, founder of Metronome. “Our landing pages list all known channels the podcast is available on, so the listener is free to use whatever they want. What’s important is we don’t lock them down to only listening on Metronome. We’re like a bridge that connects the audience to the podcast, on applications they’re already familiar with.”

The Metronome Starter Plan is available for a one-time fee of $20. Podcasters only need to supply their show’s RSS feed URL to start, and comes with standard features:

With more enhancements in the roadmap, and subscription-based plans rolling out in later this year, Metronome is intent on creating a range of solutions to help podcasters better grow and engage their audience.
