Anchor for your podcasting journey?

Anchor.fm is a podcasting platform that touts to be powering the most podcasts worldwide. With its free subscription model and celebrity endorsements, it certainly sounds interesting.

IS ANCHOR REALLY FREE?

About Anchor.fm

Anchor allows podcasters to create and edit podcasts. It is a free service, but, being free comes with an asterisk or two.

Just like Anchor, Spreaker offers a free account that allows you to not only create and upload your podcasts, but distribute them to all of the major platforms like Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and iHeart with our One-Click Distribution feature.

Spreaker doesn’t include 3rd party ads into our user’s podcasts. In fact, Spreaker includes an industry-leading monetization feature which allows you to place ads in your podcast and make money with them.

WHAT YOU WON'T GET FROM ANCHOR

Why should you use Spreaker instead?

Both platforms are modern and have a polished user interface. While both Anchor and Spreaker try to help your podcast get off the ground with ease of use and beginner friendly features, Spreaker blows Anchor away when it comes to growing your podcast.

Advanced features to grow your podcast.

Industry-leading monetization, Spreaker Studio mobile and desktop app and AdHub promotion network are just some of the features that help you start and grow your podcast with Spreaker.

Both platforms have modern look and feel to them and focus on ease of use. But, when it comes to features, Spreaker blows the competition away.

There are a lot of reasons to choose Spreaker over Buzzsprout or switch to Spreaker if your podcast is growing and the lack of advanced features is becoming a bottle-neck for you.

What is Anchor?

Anchor is a podcasting platform owned by Spotify. It allows podcasters to upload and distribute their podcasts. Just like Spreaker, it has a modern user interface, but it lacks some advanced monetization and promotion features that Spreaker offers.

Anchor has a modern, easy-to-use user interface (like Spreaker) that allows podcasters to upload and manage their podcasts. It doesn’t offer much in terms of podcast creation or monetization. And being free means there may be some 3rd party ads showing on your podcast profile.

It depends. If you want a basic podcasting platform and don’t mind if some ads are shown on your public profile then Anchor.fm might be a good choice for you. If you are serious about podcasting and want to turn it into a business or promote your existing business with it, Spreaker offers many advanced growth and monetization features while still being friendly to beginners.

How does Anchor work?

Is Spreaker better than Anchor?

Will Anchor allow me to grow my podcast?

Anchor does host some large podcasts, but their bread and butter is a basic, easy to use podcasting platform which is free (Spreaker also offers free plans). Anchor allows some basic monetization but  with Spreaker you get an industry-leading monetization network, podcast promotion and easy-to-use podcast creation app. Spreaker is better suited for podcasters who take podcasting seriously.
