Create a Host Account for yourself. By doing so you can enhance your podcast, spread awareness
to those following you, and increase engagement. As a Host you can not only enhance any occasion
you are hosting but also be linked to other occasions you are involved in that utilize the platform.
If you are a guest on another podcast, you can encourage them to use CrowdUltra to link your Host
account with the occasion. This increases awareness and organizes your social engagement.
Create a Channel for your podcast to establish a social hub for your podcast’s community. This makes
it easy to engage with your crowd, increasing connection, engagement, awareness, and downloads/views.
Add Channel information including whatever you would like with endless customizability through our
Rich-Text/HTML editor or by embedding webpages for the Channel and merchandise/ticketing. Add up to
five Co-Hosts if necessary, to provide equal access to the Channel. From here, Crowd Members can search
for and follow your Channel.
Channels can also be created for anything else you’re involved in. Those following your Host Account
will automatically follow all of your Channels. This increases engagement and awareness while keeping
Create Events for every episode of your podcast to enable engagement surrounding the episode, provide robust
information, and spread awareness. By doing so you create a social environment and allow your Crowd to stay on top of every episode.
Each Event can be scheduled beforehand, during a live recording, or after the episode has been released.
Every Event has information including an image, location, date and time, and description. You can enable Event Q&A or Posts. Events
can be made private with a defined pin so only a select group can participate.
Each Event can have additional information including whatever you would like with endless customizability through
our Rich-Text/HTML editor or by embedding webpages for the episode and merchandise/ticketing. This opens avenues
to allow your Crowd to download or listen/watch your podcast directly in the platform, purchase merchandise or
tickets increasing sales, spotlight sponsors or resources, and much more. Event info can also be reposted to the
feed as a feed announcement. This provides notice regarding the Event to your Crowd and allows them to also repost
the feed announcement increasing the level of visibility.
Hosts can record video to Dropbox, broadcast a livestream on YouTube, or embed recorded video within any Event.
Crowd Members can view the embedded video/livestream from the list of questions or posts as they engage.
Include guests for the episode in the Event. Including them spreads awareness to their followers and enables them to
be asked questions or tagged in posts organized within their own dedicated list. If the guest already has a CrowdUltra
Host Account linked to the email address entered, they will be invited to accept the Event from their own list of Events.
If they do not have an account, they will be sent an email with a link and login pin.
If listeners have yet to join CrowdUltra, they can join to engage in seconds using our Quick Join feature. A Quick Join
Link and ID are provided for every Event that can be shared and used to sign up with. Members of the Crowd can also see who
they follow that is following the Event as well, to connect with them regarding the podcast.
Q&A is proven to be one of the best ways to engage with your Crowd in a way that strengthens connection with them. While podcasters
often use email, voicemail lines, and social media platforms like Twitter for Q&A, they are all limited in comparison to CrowdUltra.
Questions are displayed in an ordered list from highest to lowest rank based on Crowd voting to assist in showing you what the
Crowd has the most curiosity about. This saves time along with providing a more organized and engaging environment for Q&A.
Questions can be asked before, during, after, or some combination of the three depending on your preference. This allows you to tailor
your Q&A experience to what works best for your podcast. You can field questions in advance to answer on an upcoming
episode, field questions to answer in real time while recording your episode, or field questions pertaining to the episode after it
has been released.
Questions can be enabled to be asked in audio, video, and written format. Hosts may also allow questions to be asked anonymously. Listeners
can ask questions in general as well as to a specific Host or Guest. Questions can be answered in audio, video, or written format and marked
as answered if they were answered outside of the platform verbally on the podcast.
Allow the Crowd to easily post, share, and connect surrounding the episode. Our platform provides an engaging environment that sparks interaction
email, DMs, and other outlets lack. By creating an organized environment for your whole Crowd to engage, you increase the effectiveness of social
engagement and connection surrounding the episode.
Enable Event Posts before, during, after, or some combination of the three. Hosts can allow the Crowd to post audio, video, images, links, YouTube/Vimeo videos,
or written posts. Posts can be published in anonymous format if allowed by the Host. This augments the experience allowing the Crowd to share interesting
things, be creative, have fun, as well as inform and help others.
Event posts are displayed in an ordered list from highest to lowest rank based on Crowd voting. Every post can be responded to by Hosts and Guests.
They can respond with audio, video, images, links, YouTube/Vimeo videos, or in written format. Posts can also be highlighted to spotlight to the Crowd
as a whole, or dismissed and removed from the list.
