PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU HAVE AN AD SYSTEM CONNECTED TO YOUR CURRENT HOST THEN PLEASE ENSURE THAT IT'S TURNED OFF BEFORE RUNNING YOUR IMPORT OR IMPORT THE AD-FREE VERSION OF THE RSS FEED IF YOU HAVE ONE.
Sorry for the caps but it's very important or ads will be burnt into your episodes during the import :)
Note: Once you've completed the steps in this help doc to redirect your feed, you can start uploading new episodes to your Omny Studio account to update your feed.
Once you've imported your podcast to Omny Studio, you can easily migrate to Omny Studio without losing your existing subscribers. All you need to do is tell Apple Podcasts and the other podcast directories and apps to pull from your new RSS feeds. This is done by applying a re-direct from your old feed to your new feed.
Migrating from Simplecast
Click on your show name in the top left of the screen. Select Show Distribution.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you'll see a dropdown button for "Advanced Settings."
Under "RSS Feed Redirect" please paste your Omny RSS feed.
After you have completed this step your feed will now redirect your feed to Omny Studio.
Note: Although Apple Podcasts will normally pick up on changes within a few days, you should leave the old feed in place for a few weeks to ensure all subscribers are moved across.
To ensure Apple Podcasts picks up your redirect as fast as possible, you can follow these steps to update your RSS feed in Apple's Podcast Connect dashboard to the RSS feed you are migrating to (your Omny RSS feed). If you have any questions please contact us.
