How to Build a Podcast Website with Notion – Start Earning Recurring Revenue Today

Starting a paid podcast is easier than you think! With just three platforms,  you can create a sleek podcast website with Notion, securely share your episodes, and even collect subscription revenue from listeners.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to launching your own paid podcast using this simple but powerful tech stack:

  • Notion – An all-in-one workspace for notes, tasks, wikis and databases. We’ll use it to create the website and content for your podcast.
  • Super – A platform that turns Notion pages into a fast, modern website. We’ll use it to publish your podcast site.
  • MemberSpace – A membership plugin that lets you accept payments, manage podcast subscribers, protect audio files, and more. We’ll use it to create your paid podcast subscription.

Table of Contents

Step 1: Pick a Notion podcast template

To easily create your podcast website, use a template from Super. The “Clip” template is a great option for podcasts.

Simply duplicate the template and add it to your Notion workspace. Then, replace the template’s placeholder content with your own. You can customize everything, but the template provides a fully functional site so you don’t have to do much.

Then, copy the Notion URL and paste it into your Super account. This will launch your public-facing website! Any future edits you make to your site in Notion will automatically update on your live Super website.

Step 2: Protect your audio files with MemberSpace

Now, in order for people to listen to your podcast, you’ll need to use MemberSpace to add your audio files to your website. MemberSpace allows you to protect any content on your site behind a paywall that only logged in, paying members can access. It’s perfect for hosting your podcast audio files securely.

To do this, start by uploading your podcast episode files directly to MemberSpace, which will generate unique, protected links for each episode.

Use MemberSpace to protect your podcast audio files, so only paying subscribers can listen to your episodes.

Then, take the links and add them to your website. You can choose how your subscribers access your content. You can choose to either have an audio player appear on the page, or subscribers can click the link to download the audio file.

When you upload your podcast audio files to MemberSpace, you can choose how subscribers get access to your content, who gets access, and when.

✨ Podcast Tip: If you’d like to use another podcasting tool like Transistor or Castos to host your podcast, you can integrate it with MemberSpace via Zapier!

Step 3: Set up your podcast subscription

Next, use MemberSpace to create a paid subscription for your podcast. Set your subscription price, billing interval (monthly, annually, etc), and billing date. MemberSpace makes it super easy to accept payments with the built-in Stripe integration via credit card, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.

Set up your Notion podcast subscription in MemberSpace by selecting the "Recurring Payment" option. You can also set the price and frequency of your payments.

Step 4: Add the signup link to your website

After creating your subscription, MemberSpace will generate a unique signup link. Copy this link and add it anywhere you want visitors to join your podcast – your website, social media, email lists, etc.

When someone clicks the link, MemberSpace will display a signup form prompting them to create an account and enter their payment info to subscribe.

Once subscribed, they’ll be able to access your protected podcast content. 

Select the Get Sign-up Link button to copy your newsletter subscription sign-up link. When your website visitors click the link, a sign-up form will appear where they can subscribe and pay.

Step 5: Promote your podcast!

To grow your podcast audience, you need to promote it! Here are some ideas on where to market your podcast:

  • Tell your friends and family – Ask those closest to you to subscribe, share on social media, leave a review. Having initial traction helps.
  • Social media – Share short clips and quotes on Instagram, TikTok, Twitter etc.
  • Cross-promotion – Find complementary shows to collaborate with. Exchange promos, make guest appearances, co-host special episodes, etc.
  • Email marketing – Leverage your current email lists and past audiences. Send promos, clips, and special offers.
  • Guests – Reach out to leaders in your space for interviews. This will help audience discover you!
  • Run a contest – Offer prizes for listeners who review or share your podcast. This can help boost discovery.
