After a series of unhelpful posts trying to find information on how to include podcasts in a Facebook page, we finally have success! See the Isagenix Podcast Tab on our Facebook Fan Page here!
We are now able to share four of our podcasts on our Facebook Fan Page. While we have been sharing these on iTunes for a while, and the RSS feed is available for whatever reader people like to use, the majority of people who come to it are not web savvy enough to use either easily.
But because Facebook is so easy to use, it is the perfect platform for introducing them to our audience.
The key was in accessing Facebook’s default media player. With this we were able to plug in the podcast’s feed. Our Facebook designer is freakin’ brilliant for figuring this out. I understand the what, but don’t ask me about the how (I’m just an SEO and a marketer, you know.)
I’m glad we were able to get this running, though, as Facebook – despite it’s flaws – is the most mainstream platform for content today. Podcasts, while undoubtedly popular, still have a learning curve to them that makes them difficult for the uninitiated to jump into. With this, hopefully, we can start making converts.
I will let you know how it goes. If you get your podcast up and running on Facebook, let me know where so we can all come see it! And if you want the particulars of how this was achieved, let me know that too and I’ll see if our designer has some time to lay it out.
