PodInbox launches chat rooms for your podcast
With PodInbox, you can now let your podcast fans chat with each other, in a text-based chat room, right on your PodInbox fan page.
For a while now, our users have asked for a feature to let their fans interact with each other. So today, we released chat rooms. Chat rooms are a simple and effective way for podcasters to build community and encourage audience engagement.
ans want to chat with each other and connect around a common interest…your podcast. PodInbox chat rooms provide a turnkey solution for this.
And being an integrated feature in our fan page platform, podcasters can optionally monetize their chat rooms with a flat-fee or a monthly subscription, by making it a private chat room.
How It’s Different
Unlike other more complex community platforms, PodInbox chat rooms are simple. It’s a real-time, text based chat, that conveniently lives right on your PodInbox fan page.
We see it as an entry point to activate your passive listeners. Chat is a low barrier fan action. When fans participate in a chat room on your fan page, they’re taking a first step into becoming a more active member of your community.
Also, we want to help podcasters know their listeners. So, we organically capture your chat room participants in your PodInbox contacts list.
If you already run a membership, like a community, course, or a cohort, you can still use a PodInbox chat room as a first step into your other paid offerings.
How It Works
PodInbox chat rooms are available on all PodInbox account tiers. You can enable or disable your chat room with a simple toggle.
You can easily setup your chat room as a public chat, allowing free and open access. Or create a private chat room, charging participants a flat fee or monthly subscription. The exact pricing is totally customizable. Creating a private chat room is a great way to monetize and reward your most loyal fans.
