Making podcast monetization easier

Supercast is a unique tool that turns listeners into subscribers. It unlocks recurring revenue and shows valuable analytics.


The word podcast is firmly back in fashion. In fact, a new golden age for podcasting could be coming soon, backed by the huge growth in creators and listeners. 

The big opportunity is a near-future where monetization (that BIG challenge) is possible thanks to a paradigm shift that sees podcasts adopt the successful subscriptions and freemium model. That’s what Aidan Hornsby had in mind when he came to Z1 looking for a team to craft Supercast, a product that makes it easy for podcasters to monetize directly from their audience.

We've had the chance to research podcasting and realized creators are missing out on native monetization capabilities, in-depth analytics features or demographic information for listeners, to name a few - all things we’ve implemented on Supercast. The result is a great tool to grow podcast businesses by efficiently delivering subscriber-exclusive content, getting paid, and providing rich analytics, all on a beautiful and user-friendly dashboard.

Is 2020 the year of podcast apps?  🎙

We can’t tell for sure, but after having worked with Castro, Supercast or DoubleUp, we do know how to build great ones.

"Z1 have been invaluable to the success of our work in the podcasting space. From marketing collateral to product design their focus, responsiveness, and attention to detail helps us move fast, stay flexible, and consistently deliver beautiful results".
