How it works

podcaster setup

Create Your Custom Glow Page

We provide you with a custom marketing webpage which you can design to match your brand. Your Glow Page allows you to collect subscriptions from your listeners.

Link to Your Glow Page in the Episode Notes

Use your Glow Page URL to get subscriptions by placing it in your Episode Notes. Drive listeners to your Glow Page with Calls to Action in your podcast and on social media.

HOW LISTENERS SUBSCRIBE

Simple, Custom Subscription Options

Once your listeners hear or read about your subscription offering, they can sign up for recurring subscriptions or send one-time payments through your Glow Page without leaving their favorite podcast streaming apps.

Smooth Payments

When users decide to subscribe, payments are quick and easy with Apple Pay and Google Pay, or directly through Stripe.

HOW LISTENERS GET THEIR CONTENT

Listen Anywhere

After payment for content, listeners select the podcast player they want to send your show to. One click, and they're auto-subscribed in their app of choice.

The new content appears instantly in their selected podcast app, ready for listening.

We're creators building for creators

Glow was built by content creators and fans who believe in the amazing power of audio. We saw first-hand how difficult it was to build a business off of creating great content, and we decided to do something about it.

Our first step is making it simple and easy for listeners to support podcasters directly. Over time, we will build richer and deeper ways for creators to connect with their audiences and build a sustainable business.
