How to Switch from Soundcloud to Libsyn Podcast Hosting

Wondering how to change your podcast platforms? Maybe you heard about the reliability and exclusive features of Libsyn podcast hosting. You’re ready to see how Libsyn can take your podcast to the next level.

Is it hard to switch podcast platforms? Not at all. In fact, easy as 1-2-3.

Step 1: Sign Up for a Libsyn Account

Go to the Libsyn signup page to create your account.

Next, pick a plan that suits the needs of your podcast.

Step 2: Import Your Show

Now that your account is ready, it’s time to bring the show files over to Libsyn. (Don’t worry…We do all the heavy lifting.)

Get started by going to the Settings section.

Click on Feed & Sync Import.

Once the window pops up, select One Time Import.

Type in your current Soundcloud RSS Feed URL.

Hit Submit.

Depending on how many files your podcast has and how large they are, this may take a bit. Go for a walk or start planning your next batch of podcast content. We will let you know when the import is complete.  Need more details? Get more information with our guide to moving a podcast from Soundcloud to Libsyn.

Step 3: Redirect Your RSS Feed

People enjoy your podcast. They want to know when new episodes come out (and listen to your old ones). It’s time to make sure Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and all your other digital distribution platforms can find your new podcast host.

Your podcast RSS feed connects your content to these services that alert your subscribers when new episodes come out. Redirecting the RSS feed makes your move to Libsyn seamless.

How to Redirect a Soundcloud RSS Feed

Log into your Soundcloud account.

Go to your Content Settings page.

Find the field labeled Subscriber Redirect and type in your new Libsyn RSS feed.

Press Save Changes.

You have redirected your podcast RSS feed!

Soundcloud will keep the RSS redirect in place indefinitely while your free Soundcloud account remains open.Still have questions? Check out Soundcloud’s knowledge base to learn more details.
