Jeffrey echoed this sentiment, explaining that Stampede Social allows podcasters to send episodes directly to their fans’ DMs, making it easier for listeners to access the content at their convenience.

With Stampede Social, podcasters can download reports to analyze which types of posts, such as carousels or videos, generate more engagement.

By asking listeners to DM a specific hashtag, podcasters can convert anonymous listeners into known ones and follow up with them.
