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 Acast
You'll need to contact Acast support to set up a redirect.
Here's an email template to send to firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm moving my podcast to a new host provider and kindly request that you apply a redirect for the following show ASAP
Can you please apply a 301 permanent redirect from [INSERT Acast RSS] to [INSERT NEW OMNY STUDIO RSS]
We will need this redirect kept in place for a minimum of 4 weeks.
Please let me know if you need any more information and an advised timeline would be greatly appreciated as well.
Thanks in advance.
