How Glow works
Step 1: Listeners become members
Listeners hear about the program and visit your membership page. Two taps later, and they are members.
Your brand is in the spotlight the whole time, not ours. Using our self-service page builder, you customize the page, include your cover art or custom hero image, and design your program how would like.
You have a lot of flexibility on how to design your program, including:
- One-time, monthly, or annual payments
- Listener free trials
- Gift subscriptions for listeners
Our Stripe integration offers best-in-breed management of payment processing, including smart retries when recurring subscriptions fail. We offer seamless checkout using Apple Pay or Google Pay.
Step 2: Listeners receive access to exclusive content
After subscribing, Glow creates an individual private feed for that listener. As long as that listener remains a subscriber, they continue to get access to new content. With two simple taps, listeners can add this private feed to most any podcast app. With our seamless experience, listeners need not copy RSS feeds and figure out where to paste them.
Because Glow private feeds can work nearly anywhere, you can go where your listeners already are, without requiring them to download new apps. You manage a single program across all apps.Private feeds allow us to monitor feed access and ensure that only active subscribers can access your content.
Step 3: Listeners can receive access to other benefits
Glow can integrate with many other tools to enable you to provide other benefits to your members, such as members-only newletters, access to a private community, or group coaching
Members Only Newsletters
Access to Private Community
Group Coaching Calls

Secure, private podcast hosting
Not all hosts are made the same. Glow’s secure, private hosting is built for member-only access to podcasts.
Most hosts are created to make your audio easily shareable. When you upload your content, the hosting service generates a URL that can be found on the open web and often by Google. When you upload your content to Glow’s hosting service, it’s not accessible by anyone except your members.
