Voicemail is the Firstory podcast tool that allows you to increase audience engagement and interaction. You can even use these audio messages in your show!
This is perhaps one of the coolest and most useful podcast hosting innovations out there. A simple link your listeners can click on to leave voice messages without needing to create an account– how convenient is that??!!
How can Voicemail help grow podcast listeners? What can I use it for?
- Increased inclusivity.
A good lot of people prefer to send voice messages rather than type out reviews and comments.
- Gather feedback.
Just like our cross-platform comment link, voicemail can be used to collect audience feedback (and you wouldn’t need to exhaust yourself from reading hundreds of comments anymore!).
- Download them.
You can keep them for memories’ sake. The next time you’re feeling down and need some cheering up, just play your fans’ voice messages!
- Use them as content.
Enrich your show by including your listeners’ voicemail. (This would make your episode so much more interesting and increase audience retention).
- Unleash your creativity!
Leverage this tool ANY WAY you want!! You can host Q&A sessions or ask your audience to share some of their personal stories. Pop them into your next episode, and you’ve got yourself a group of guaranteed listeners.
- It’s (almost) like a conversation.
You can REALLY KNOW your audience. There’s just so much about voices that can tell us A LOT vs. just reading their comments.
- Gather and manage them all right from Firstory Studio!
You’ve really got absolutely nothing to lose from taking advantage of this extremely rare hosting feature. Don’t forget to encourage your audience to click on the voicemail link to leave their message! Simple, easy, convenient.
At Firstory, we aim to draw creators and fans closer to each other.
Happy podcasting! ❤
