How to Keep Your Podcast on Anchor.fm Organized [Tutorial]


welcome to the anchor show I’m your host
Ileane Smith and I started podcasting in 2009 and I remember the days when I
would struggle to understand how podcasting works how to grow my audience
and how to use the different apps that we have available for us on our mobile
devices so in this episode I’m going to share with you some of the tips and
tricks that I’ve learned for using the anchor app sit tight I have some tips to
share with you let’s get started this podcast is supported by awesome
listeners like Bernie from Top Gold and his podcast is Underway in Ireland and
Patricia a Murray whose podcast is the Nitty Gritty from Bull City and from
patrons on Patreon lend your support by hitting the listener support button or
going over to patreon.com/ileane the Anchor app is basically giving you a
podcast producer in your pocket when you’re using the mobile app you have so
many options for how you can bring in your recorded segments of course you can record inside the app you can go into your library and bring in previously
recorded segments you can add your call-ins from your listeners and now you
can add the smart background of music but what happens when you go into your
folders where you’ve stored all of your recordings and you just can’t manage it
you’ve just recorded so much stuff that you need a way to stay organized so I’m
going to share with you a tip on how you can stay a little more organized from
your mobile device when you have that really great intro music you’ve already
uploaded it into the Anchor app but in your library it’s stored so far back you
get tired of scrolling back to grab it and put it at the beginning of your
episodes so why don’t you give this a try we can import audio from different
apps on our phone for example Google Drive or Dropbox and if you’re on iOS
you can import from your Apple music library so why don’t you create
subfolders inside of Google Drive or you could do this in Dropbox but I think
it’s easier in Google Drive to have all of your Anchor intros and outros and any
transitions that you own have them in that folder and then that way whenever
you want to add it into your episode you can just upload it
and import it from your phone and you don’t have to worry about
dealing with the unmanageable folder on anchor see if anchor in the next version
maybe they will create a way for us to make subfolders but right now we don’t
have subfolders we just have one big folder with all of our files and we have
to hunt and peck and scroll back and all of that but with these other apps like
Google Drive you can make as many subfolders as you want and then you can
easily navigate through them when you use the import feature on anchor so I
hope that helps that question came in over on Facebook Calvin L Mitchell asked
this question over in the Facebook group for Anchor Community so I hope you find
this solution helpful Calvin and you guys let me know if you have any other
questions and if this solution works for you. “Hi Ms Ileane this is Horace

I mean you can import directly from the different drives. and that is an amazing idea and then you can just that that was just amazing thank you I’m
gonna start doing that like today because you’re right like you know I use
that werewolf intro a lot and sometimes it’ll get so far down that I have to
keep scrolling and you’re right that’s a pain so thank you for the great ideas

Android you know I have an iPhone 8 plus so I love when I find out something is
