Why Should You Join BTRN?
That is a great question but it depends on who you are and the target audience you are looking to reach with your podcasts.
Black Talk Radio Network has been online for 11 years providing a space to showcase Black voices. We have become the number one distributor of Black audio podcasts and radio streams after a decade online. While our memberships are open to the public, the Black Talk Radio Network has been a world leader in facilitating communication among African-Americans, the African Diaspora and those on the continent, with audio content made specifically for that demographic.
According to the independent research and analysis of a team working for Feedspot, a marketing, and digital media research firm, Black Talk Radio Network was ranked #1 in a top 25 list of “Black Audio Podcasts” and radio streams. The list was created to rank the thousands of audio podcasts made for or by Black podcasters. Read Feedspot’s analysis here.
When you join BTRN as a podcaster, we will submit your branded podcast feed to other major podcasts directories that distribute audio podcasts like TuneIn, Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, Blurrbrry, Stitcher and Apple. Your podcast will get even more exposure by being included in the main podcast feed of Black Talk Radio Network which is distributed to the same platforms.
Through a partnership with Blubrry, all podcasters on Black Talk Radio Network will be eligible for free basic podcast statistical reports by signing up for the service through us. You can upgrade your account for more detailed professional stats for a low price of $5 per month. We will walk you through the process to properly set up your account to track your feed statistics utilizing the service.
