Anchor F.A.Q.

Q: Can I use Chartable if my podcast is hosted on Anchor?

A: Yes! You'll just need to sign up for a free Publisher account and set up a SmartFeed for your show's RSS feed since Anchor does not currently support our Trackable RSS feed integration. 

If you do not currently have an RSS feed for your Anchor podcast, you'll need to turn that feature on in Anchor before you can set up a SmartFeed for your show.

Learn more about SmartFeeds here.

Q: A podcast publisher wants to run a promotion for their podcast on my Anchor show, can they measure the results with a SmartPromo?

A: Yes, as long as you have a Chartable account and a SmartFeed set up for your Anchor show, the other team can create a Baked-In SmartPromo to measure the results (downloads and conversions) of a promotion they're running in a specific episode of your show. After the other team creates the SmartPromo, it will be assigned to your Chartable team for approval (you'll find it in the Ad Ops page in your Chartable account).

Since Anchor does not currently have a dynamic audio insertion feature, Dynamic SmartPromos are not an option.

All Chartable teams can approve SmartPromos created by other teams for free. Learn more about the difference between baked-in and dynamic promotions here.

Q: Can I create a SmartPromo to measure a promotion for my show that will run in other podcasts if my show is hosted on Anchor?

A: Yes, but you will need to have a SmartFeed set up for your show, and you'll also need a Pro or Enterprise plan to create SmartPromos.
