Tips and tricks - with Podpage

Super simple members-only podcasts
Paid content


Over the past few years, the podcasting landscape has seen continuous ebbs and flows with streaming giants such as Spotify and Amazon acquiring smaller podcast networks for exclusive show rights, many times only to cut costs and leave these shows canceled several months later.

As a podcaster, take ownership of your show and your audience with membership.

Memberful allows you to take your podcast independent and earn reliable recurring income by offering a private podcast feed and exclusive content to your paying members. Plus, you can reward your most loyal subscribers with access to bonus episodes, ad-free shows, behind the scenes content, private newsletters, branded merchandise, and much more.

Memberful seamlessly integrates with all of your favorite tools including WordPress, MailChimp, and Discord — or, you can use Memberful’s built-in features and get your membership business started within minutes. Whatever you decide, you have full control of your show, your audience, and your business.
