Buzzsprout

Creator Program

Buzzsprout champions the open podcast community. We love supporting conferences, meetups, and independent creators big and small. In most cases, indie podcasters fund and finance their contributions to the podcasting community on their own, oftentimes spending hundreds or thousands of dollars and countless hours in service to their niche of loyal fans.

While we can't change this for everyone, we can make a difference for some. And that's why we're excited to offer the Buzzsprout Creator Program. The Buzzsprout Creator Program allows Buzzsprout to partner with independent podcasters to help support their endeavors, grow their influence, and creates an alignment between their brand and Buzzsprout.

All creators in the program receive free podcast hosting on Buzzsprout, Buzzsprout T-Shirts/Stickers/Swag, $25 commissions on paid Buzzsprout referrals, 1 conference ticket per year (Podcast Movement, Podfest Multimedia Expo, T&C Summit, or FlynnCon), and a monthly stipend based on their level of influence.

The program is designed to serve 3 types of participants:

Creator

A Buzzsprout Podcast Creator produces high-quality and consistent podcast content. This is a broad category and we can only parter with a few podcasts at this level each year. We're looking for shows and personalities that align with our brand and could benefit from some basic financial support.

Coach

A Buzzsprout Podcast Coach produces content targeted at the independent podcast community with an educational focus. While every episode may not specifically be a "how-to" or "gear review," overall the audience is tuning in because they are interested in starting or growing a podcast.

Advisor

A Buzzsprout Advisor is an established podcast professional interested in helping guide the direction of Buzzsprout. Typically they are the primary host of one or more podcasts and have been involved in the podcasting space for 5+ years.
