Promote an episode
To promote a specific episode, select Promote Episode and press continue to see a preview of how your promoted episode will look on the Discover page. Use the sliders to choose your promotion budget and the maximum amount (in sats) that users can earn by listening to the full episode.
How many people will listen to my promotion?
The promotion budget and max earnings settings you choose will affect the amount the minimum number of listeners you can expect to reach with your promotion and the cost per listen. Minimum listener reach estimates do not take into account for listeners who don’t listen to the full episode. When this happens the budget that is not spent gets recycled back into your promotion budget, increasing your reach and reducing cost per listen.
What fees do you pay for promotions?
All promotions are subject to a 20% fee, which is priced into the total cost. This means that 80% of your campaign budget gets paid directly to users who listen to your promotion. For example, if you set a budget of $50 then $40 will be your user earnings budget.
How do I pay for my promotion?
Press purchase promotion when you’re ready and you will be able to pay with a credit card. When your payment has gone through, you will see the payment success screen and get take back to the Fountain home page.
When will my promotion go live?
After you have paid for your promotion, there is a 24-hour review period before your promotion is served to users. You can check the status of your promotions in the Promotions tab on your Show Page. When it has been approved, the status will change from Pending to Live.
