Libsyn is offering free migration through Q1 2017, flat fee after that

Libsyn is making it more affordable to migrate your entire podcast archive to their powerful platform. Through March, 2017, podcasters can migrate up to 10 GB of episodes to Libsyn for free. In April, 2017, migrating up to that same amount will cost a flat rate of $25.

Before 2017, Libsyn's migration service was a one-time cost based on how much archived media you transfer. A back catalog of episodes would cost 5¢ per megabyte (“archiving” current episodes costs 10¢ per megabyte).

To understand the cost, imagine your podcast has 50 episodes, each an hour long and encoded with my recommended MP3 settings. With each episode being about 30 megabytes (MB), the total archive would be about 1.5 gigabytes (GB).

1.5 GB archive × 5¢ per MB transfer fee = $75 total cost

Libsyn's new offering would make this migration completely free through March 2017, or only $25 after that.

How much can you fit in a 10 GB archive transfer? Assuming my recommended encoding settings, that lets you transfer up to 333 hours of content for free or only $25!

This now makes it significantly more affordable to migrate your podcast archive to Libsyn and take advantage of their many great offerings.

For migrations larger than 10 GB, contact Libsyn support for a custom quote.

Libsyn is one of only three podcast-media-hosting companies I recommend: Blubrry, Libsyn, and Spreaker (each for specific reasons and scenarios). For comparison, Blubrry will transfer your entire catalog for free; Spreaker charges based on total storage, so a migration is essentially free.

    i know, right? i was all, “does that exist? where can I get one of those?”

  3. Lightwave7871 says:

    There is no info about this on Libsyn at all… Is this information correct?

    “Libsyn is one of only three podcast-media-hosting companies I recommend: Blubrry, Libsyn, and Spreaker (each for specific reasons and scenarios).”

    Can you explain what the specific reasons and scenarios are for? Also, which would you suggest for an NPR affiliated radio station that wants to start producing podcasts on their website?

    1. I have more details on the unique aspects of each provider here:

      In general, I recommend Blubrry if you’re using WordPress, Libsyn if you’re using a different content-management system or don’t want to manage your podcast feed from your WordPress site, and Spreaker if you want live-streaming and an all-in-one recording-to-publishing system. My affiliate promo code “noodle” will give you a free month on all three of these, so you’re welcome to test them each to see what works best for you.
