It’s an exciting day for us at Glow.
We founded Glow because we believe in a rich, diverse media environment--one where creators get paid for their work and have easy access to the tools to turn their work into a sustainable business.
Today, we’re taking a major step towards making that vision a reality. Glow is joining Libsyn, where they’ll be able to bring the Glow product--which makes it simple for any podcaster to build a membership program--to a broad base of podcasters big and small.
Glow is joining Libsyn, where they'll be able to bring the Glow product--which makes it simple for any podcaster to build a membership program--to a broad base of podcasters big and small. You can read the official announcement here. But, we wanted to take the opportunity to tell you about the transition directly and answer a few questions.
For Libsyn customers: In the coming months, Libsyn customers will be able to easily take advantage of Glow’s world-class suite of tools to build and monetize a membership program. The Libsyn and Glow teams will be working together to make the Glow product nicely integrated into Libsyn’s suite of products.
For Glow customers: Your listeners will not experience any interruption in payments or service. You do not have to take any action.
Do I have to use Libsyn if I’m a Glow customer?
Nope. If you’re a Glow customer, nothing about your existing experience with Glow will change, except for the fact that there’s going to be an even greater investment in the product and feature set as time goes on.
You do not have to use Libsyn’s hosting services to continue using Glow. We’re excited that the team at Libsyn is fully committed to keeping Glow available to all podcasts, regardless of where you host.
What’s going on with Refer-O-Matic?
Good question! The Glow product is going over to Libsyn, but Refer-O-Matic and Great Podcast Marketing are living on separately and independently under the umbrella of Creator Machines, Inc. Stay tuned for more news about Creator Machines.
To all of our customers, partners, and fans, thank you for coming on this journey with us.
We're forever grateful to you for helpful us turn Glow from a dream into a reality and are excited to see it be used by hundreds of thousands of more creators in the coming years.
