Why You Should Create A Google Email For Your Podcast
When you create a new podcast, it’s important to start by creating a new Google email for your show. This may seem like a simple step, but trust us, it will save you a lot of time in the long run.
After starting a new show, many podcasters use their personal or work emails to publish their podcasts onto the major listening platforms. The issue with that is if you’re a brand, you'll need an email that is easily accessible across your team. Or if you're a pro podcaster bringing in sponsors, it's best to have a centralized place to manage your show.
Benefits of creating a Google email for your show:
- A Google-specific email will make it easier to distribute to Google Podcasts. When you’re ready to submit your show to the listening platforms, having a Google email that you can log into makes the submission process on Google Podcast Manager substantially simpler and faster.
- Use your Google email to create accounts on all the other listening platforms and submit your show. By using one email account dedicated to your show, it will make it easier to keep track of approvals and confirmation codes.
- Safety-first. By not using your personal email for your show, you mitigate your personal cyber exposure. Let’s say your podcast got hacked, the only thing that the threat actor could access is your podcast, rather than your personal accounts.
- Work emails. If you leave the job that your podcast email is associated with, how will you access it again? If the show is owned by the brand you worked for, they will need to access it after you leave.
