Manage and Sell Premium Podcast Content

2 techniques you need to ponder: free-but-hard-work or easy-but-pricey. We’ll go through them one by one.

Deliver Premium Content Manually

Tools needed:

Prevent Direct Access (PDA) Gold

to prevent unauthorized users from downloading your premium podcasts.

Password Protect WordPress (PPWP) Pro

to lock your entire podcast feed

PayPal or Stripe

to collect payments

Step 1

Password Protect Podcast Feed

One-click to lock your entire podcast feed with PPWP Pro. Anyone can subscribe to that protected feed but only those with the correct password can access the content.

Step 2

Hide Podcasts Uploaded to Your WordPress Media Library

PDA Gold gives you the power to shield unlimited WordPress MP3, MP4 files that you upload to your Media Library, pages, or posts.

Once protected, only the logged-in audience can view your podcasts. Unauthorized customers will be redirected to your 404 error page when attempting to open and download them.

Plus, PDA Gold tells Google and other search engines to not index your podcasts. You don’t need to worry your podcast links show up on search results.
Step 3

Let Users Purchase Your Podcasts via Private Download Links

Generate as many private links as you’d love to and share them with your loyal audiences.

PDA Gold protects and keeps track of these links based on the given time and number of clicks. That way, you’re free from worrying users share your podcast links with others.

Step 4

Accept Payments Online

PayPal or Stripe are the simplest ways to take payments. However, they have no integration with your podcast feed. That means you have to send the passwords to paying subscribers manually.

Sell Premium Podcasts with Membership Sites

Tools needed:

Membership Plugins

to build a membership site

Membership Integration extension

to integrate PDA Gold with membership plugins

Preven Direct Access (PDA) Gold

to control podcast sharing
Step 1

Create a Membership Site with Membership Plugins

Use Paid Membership Pro, WooCommerce Memberships, WooCommerce Subscriptions, etc. to build your membership site. They’ll help you automatically create subscriptions, handle monthly payments, and manage access to the membership content.

The only trade-off is that they can’t completely control file and link sharing. That’s why we need PDA Gold and its Membership Integration extension.
Step 2

Grant Podcast Access to Specific User Roles

Leverage your podcasts by grant premium podcast access to different member tiers and specific user roles only. That way, you invest once but can earn more with your podcasts.Next, creating multiple private access links, letting users download, but can’t reshare them.
