How to start your subscriber-only exclusive episode?
Provide Exclusive Content for Subscribers
You can provide exclusive content for subscribers as a value-added service. Firstory has partnered with Spotify to allow creators to release subscriber-only episodes on Spotify. Listeners can listen to them by subscribing to the corresponding Firstory plan and linking their Firstory and Spotify accounts.
(2023 updated) Recently we has unveiled Firstory Private Rss - The New Way to Help You Monetize Your Podcast ! One of the biggest challenges of monetizing your podcast is managing your subscribers across multiple platforms. With Firstory, you can manage your subscribers in one place, rather than having to deal with subscribers on Apple, Patreon, and other platforms.
Firstory Private RSS is fully compatible with all major podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Amazon etc... This means that your subscribers can unlock your exclusive content and listen to your podcast on the platform of their choice.
When you are uploading an episode, select the listening permissions for the episode in the advanced settings. Choose the name of your subscription plan as the permission, as shown in the figure below. If you choose public, subscribers cannot be restricted from listening.
