The Simplecast team has been hard at work on new features to meet the demands of an ever-changing industry, and now we’re excited to roll out our newest: ad-free feeds!
For customers on our Professional and Enterprise plans who use our Moveable Audio Engine or AdsWizz tools, you’ll now have the ability to generate a secondary, ad-free RSS feed. This URL can be used anywhere you want to offer your audience an ad-free listening experience–for example, offering ad-free episodes for subscribers, or people listening through your app.
You can find the option to generate an ad-free feed by visiting your Show Settings > Distribution. There, you can go to the Advanced settings, where you will see an option for an ad-free feed. By enabling it, it will generate a copy of your feed that won’t be targeted with ads (or any dynamic audio content). Once it’s enabled you will see the Feed URL, and it will also be shown on your main distribution page for easy access. (Did your ad-free feed get shared somewhere you wish it didn’t? You can easily regenerate a new URL to keep your ad-free content where it’s supposed to be.) Find more info here.
Ad-free feeds open up new avenues of monetization and audience engagement for publishers and creators, and we can’t wait to see how you use them.
