The BestPlatform for Starting a Podcast

The best way to start a new podcast, and its free. Has more features than paid competitors.

Pros

Anchor easily allows you to publish your podcast on many platforms with ease. All from one location. It also allows you to convert video files from audio, which is a feature I needed.

Cons

Limited features. Does not allow listeners to subscribe on Anchor. They have to go to a different platform to do that.

Reasons for Switching to Anchor

Free, and more platforms available.

I don't know how else to say it: it keeps getting better!

Pros

I have known of Anchor for a while and I have to say that the platforms keeps getting better and better. Creating an episode with its Drag-and-Drop builder is as easy as saying '1, 2, 3!', and it includes sounds and sound effects you can add to your episodes. I'm a fan of the "co-recording" and co-hosting feature too, because it makes collaborating something you can do with just a couple of taps. Every podcaster loves to grow their show and if they have costs, to cover those costs... well, Anchor comes to the rescue by offering several ways to monetize your podcast episodes, and to do so straight from the platform! Plus, there is even a mobile app you can rely on

Cons

There have been some issues about Anchor "modifying" some of its content (for example, by adding a short promotional segment at the end of episodes of some podcasters). Also, the analytics aren't as robust as those of other podcast hosting platforms.

Super simple to get started with podcasting thanks to Anchor!

As a starter, I really found the experience with Anchor seamless and am really happy with having chosen this option. I knew the things I had to do, the steps were straightforward, the documentation was helpful, and there weren't really any hurdles. I highly recommend Anchor. (But again, if you are thinking very professionally about your podcast and want something for the long run, as an extension of your business, etc., you may want to look into paid alternatives that offer more customization.)

Pros

- The fact that it's free. - It is associated with Spotify which provides trust. - But you are not limited to Spotify alone and your podcast will be distributed to all major platforms. - The distribution experience was really a breeze, super simple. - Low low barrier to entry.

Cons

If you are thinking very professionally about your podcast, you might want to look into self-hosting and other paid tools which might provide things you will need as you develop and expand your podcast. But for a starter, a hobby-podcaster, or limited-time projects I really can't see any cons to Anchor.
