The technology could transform the audio experience
An end-to-end audio management, distribution, monetization and analytics platform, Sounder aims to make audio more discoverable and better for everyone while supporting a thriving and innovative ecosystem. The company recently launched Sounder Plus, a paid service that offers more options and support than the Basic option.
Costing US$12.99 a month, Sounder Plus “helps creators automate content distribution, transform audio content into readily shareable videos, optimize audience growth through AI-powered recommendations, collaborate with a team up to five and authentically brand their content,” the company notes in a press release.
Sounder Plus features include automated episode distribution to YouTube, transcripted video clips for episode promotion and AI-generated keyword suggestions to improve audio SEO. The plan supports unlimited podcasts and up to to 50,000 streams a month. In addition, Sounder Player offers 10 pre-created themes or allows creators to design their own.
“At Sounder, we strive to empower every creator to connect with their audiences and have their voices heard. In talking with many creators on our platform, we knew they needed automated, simple and intuitive ways to expand and engage their audiences,” said Kal Amin, cofounder and CEO of Sounder. “With our upgraded transcription technology and improvements to our machine learning algorithms now available in all Sounder subscriptions, we are bringing powerful tools to ensure all creators can accelerate their podcasting growth.”
Sounder Plus sits in between the free Sounder Basic and customized Enterprise service. Sounder Basic covers hosting for one podcast, up to 5,000 streams per month, transcription, distribution to all major podcast apps, monetization tools and standard audience analytics. With Basic, Sounder Player allows customization with one of three themes and gives a limited number of AI-powered keyword suggestions for episode descriptions, RSS feed keywords and social tags.
