If you have an existing podcast on a hosting platform other than Libsyn, and are looking to migrate your already-published episodes to Libsyn, then here you’ll find the exact steps you can follow to make sure it’s done right.
We have two PDF’s linked below with step-by-step instructions from Libsyn on how to migrate from Anchor to Libsyn, and how to migrate from SoundCloud to Libsyn.
Why you should migrate to Libsyn
When starting a new podcast, you have a lot of options when it comes to choosing your hosting platform, the equipment you’ll use, the software to record and edit your podcast, and so on.
While each individual may prefer one microphone over another, or a particular recording and editing software, there are, in my mind, only two great hosting platforms available.
One of them is Podcast Websites, and Podcast Websites is a great hosting platform for you if you’re also looking to create and launch a podcast website and have everything hosted under one roof.
Simple put, Podcast Websites makes hosting your podcast AND your website on one platform super easy.
If you want to learn more about Podcast Websites, migrating your existing website over to their platform, or if you have any other questions about whether the platform is right for you, you can schedule a completely free one-to-one chat with the Podcast Websites team right here.
However, if you aren’t in the market for a podcast website – perhaps you already have one and are in love with your current setup – then the podcast hosting company you should go with is Libsyn.
Note: we’ve teamed up with Libsyn to offer you a special promo code when you sign up for hosting with Libsyn. Use promo code FIRE for the rest of this month AND next month free!
I’ve been using Libsyn to host Entrepreneurs On Fire since the beginning, and over the past 6 years I’ve added about 20 other podcast feeds to my Libsyn account.
In those 6 years I have experienced exactly zero issues when it comes to my podcast hosting.
Aside from it being the podcast hosting platform that I use for my own podcast, the reason I so highly recommend Libsyn over other hosting platforms is because they are solely focused on just that: being a great podcast hosting platform.
They are the first to make updates when new compliance gets put in place, like when IAB issued new podcasting stats standards across the board.
And they are a treasure trove of knowledge when it comes to all things podcasting.
So now that you know why you should be hosting on the Libsyn platform, here are two guides – from Libsyn – on how to migrate your podcast to the Libsyn hosting platform.
