Getting Started with Fusebox
So, you're thinking about creating a Fusebox account? Or maybe you already have, but you need some help getting started?
Well, you're in the right place! We'll walk you through how to get started with Fusebox.
Create Your Account
To get started, go to this page to set up your Fusebox account.
Choose Your Show Type
After completing your account setup, you'll be asked whether you'd like to start a New Podcast OR Add an Existing Podcast.
Click Start a New Podcast if this is a brand new podcast and you need both podcast players and a podcast host.
Click Add Existing Podcast if you only need the podcast players and already have a podcast host.
Start a New Podcast
If you selected New Podcast, this probably means (you guessed it) starting a brand new podcast!
Begin by providing the following show details:
- Podcast Title
- Podcast Description
- Podcast Cover Artwork (optional)
Once you've entered those details, click Let's Get Started
Since Easy Hosting currently requires a Pro subscription to our Fusebox Podcast Players, you'll automatically be taken to the checkout screen. Enter your payment information and click Confirm & Subscribe.
That's it! You've just made your new podcast!
Add Existing Podcast
If you selected Add Existing Podcast, you'll be asked to supply your show's RSS URL.
An RSS URL is a web feed that allows users and applications to access updates to websites in a standardized, computer-readable format. These feeds can, for example, allow a user to keep track of many different websites in a single news aggregator.
In short, it is what connects your Show to Fusebox.
If you're unsure where to find your show's RSS URL, click the link here.
Choose between a Free or Pro subscription for your show. If you're unsure which plan to pick, check out our breakdown here.
Finally, enter your payment information to begin your subscription. If you opted to use our Free plan, you won't see this step. If you selected Pro, enter your card information, choose how often you'd like to be billed, and voilà, you're all set!
Now that your account is set up, and you've selected the products and subscription you wanted, here are the next steps to take:
If you selected New Podcast, click here.
If you selected Existing Podcast, click here.
