All a great revelation for the podcasters, very intuitive.

When starting any initiative, especially a podcast, the support of a portal to upload the programs is a fact, your free plan has allowed me to start with a dream I had for years, now that I'm going in the right direction, I can look for sponsorship and thus expand the necessary improvements in my podcast to reach new audiences with the commercial advantage of Buzzprout.

Pros

As a podcaster it is important for me the documentation, Buzzsprout offers everything that anyone who seeks to join the wonderful world of podcast needs to know. Another aspect that I think is fantastic, is that you have all the tools for your podcast to reach the next level, it does not matter if you do not know about the area, thanks Buzzsprout you can count on an intuitive panel that will guide you in everything you need to do to record, produce and upload your podcast. Also, I like to automatically update your new programs with other popular platforms among listeners, which allows you to reach new audiences and publicize the content of your podcast. Another experience that I really liked, is the way it is designed and designed for cell phones, it is available for any smartphone that uses Android or iOS. So much is what they think about the podcasters, who put at your disposal the possibility that you have your own website.

Cons

With the growth of consumption of platforms such as Spotify, it is a disappointing factor that they do not directly publish the podcasts that are uploaded on their platform, that makes it less attractive to their commercial offer. Also, they could improve the benefits of their business plans, I'm sure many podcasters will opt for Buzzsprout as a platform to seek to attract those customers who are not very happy with other platforms that limit their creative process.

This platform does a lot for your podcast and for you

Pros

I think that Buzzsprout is one podcasting platform that does a lot for podcast hosts and their shows. On the educational side of things, I like that Buzzsprout helps podcasters and podcasting enthusiasts through articles, video tutorials and email, as well as its community. It's good to know that, when you sign up for Buzzsprout, you can get all of this! In terms of the platform itself, Buzzsprout does what you would expect from a media host. There are a few things I think it does well: allowing you to distribute your podcast content to many platforms with ease, giving you stats that are insightful but easy to read, and letting you optimize and transcribe your episodes right from inside the platform.

Cons

Some podcast hosts have a free plan and Buzzsprout does too. However, its free plan makes your content available only for a limited time (90 days). And if you opt for the plan that follows (the most wallet-friendly premium plan), you are going to spend a bit more than what you would pay with other hosting platforms.

Professional and Straight Forward

Pros

Buzzsprout is straight forward and very professional. I love the layout and how easy it is to use on a regular basis. Buzzsprout makes it so easy to upload and edit episodes I especially love how easy they layout the stats, it's so easy to understand and see how well each episode is doing. I've never had an issue with support on any web or OS.

Cons

I don't love their pricing tiers. The highest tier only allows us to upload 12 hours per month. If you go over that it begins to get very pricey. I wish that there was another option to allow for 20 or more hours. Other than that I don't have many complaints. The product works as advertises and I've enjoyed using it.

Solid Podcasting Platform, Especially for Metrics

I've used Buzzsprout for both personal and organizational podcast projects. In every instance it's been a time-saver and, ultimately, a cost-saver because it saves server space. Recommended.

Pros

I've used this platform for multiple podcast projects. It's intuitive and user-friendly. In particular, it's possible to see your analytics--something that has been difficult on iTunes, for example. The data about number of listeners, platforms, devices, etc. are all extremely helpful. Buzzsprout also makes distribution simple across platforms, with autopublishing features to various podcast players and the ability to embed Buzzsprout's player into any webpage or blog post. The ability to manage multiple podcasts from a single account is helpful as well.

Cons

I haven't had any complaints about Buzzsprout. It does what I've needed it to do.

Buzzsprout makes hosting simple

Terrific customer service. Did I mention it's super easy to use? I plan to stick with BuzzSprout for a long, long time.

Pros

Buzzsprout is inexpensive and incredibly easy to use - making it easy for a newcomer to get started. With the advent of regular emails, blog posts, and a suite of podcasts about podcasting, the service is helping me grow my podcast and offering me the opportunity to encourage others who are launching new shows.

Cons

The user interface has been slightly clunky but those issues have been resolved in the last couple of months. I'm excited about where BuzzSprout is headed.
