This post covers how to post an episode that has been processed through Resonate post-production services.

To publish a finalized episode, follow these steps:
1. Login to your Resonate account.

5. Once all of the above information is accurate, click the ‘Approve’ button under your episode master.
6. Your podcast will publish at your specified date and time.
EACH PODCAST DIRECTORY HAS AN INDEPENDENT REFRESH CYCLE THAT WILL IMPACT WHEN YOUR EPISODE WILL SHOW UP IN THAT PARTICULAR DIRECTORY. THOUGH YOU SELECTED A SPECIFIC PUBLISH DATE AND TIME IN YOUR RESONATE ACCOUNT, THIS IS NOT THE EXACT TIME THAT EPISODE WILL SHOW UP IN EACH DIRECTORY. IF YOU NEED TO SHARE YOUR EPISODE AT A SPECIFIC TIME WE RECOMMEND YOU POINT YOUR LISTENERS TO YOUR RESONATE MICROSITE OR EMBED THE MEDIA PLAYER ON YOUR WEBSITE. IN OUR EXPERIENCE EPISODES USUALLY, SHOW UP IN SPOTIFY THE SOONEST AND APPLE CAN TYPICALLY TAKE THE LONGEST. WE RECOMMEND ALLOWING AT LEAST 3-4 HOURS FOR YOUR EPISODE TO SHOW UP IN ALL DIRECTORIES FROM THE TIME IT WAS POSTED FROM YOUR RESONATE ACCOUNT.
IF YOUR EPISODE IS STILL NOT SHOWING UP IN A PARTICULAR DIRECTORY AFTER 4 HOURS FROM THE POST TIME IN RESONATE, WE RECOMMEND YOU REACH OUT TO THAT SPECIFIC DIRECTORY FOR SUPPORT USING THE CONTACTS BELOW:
