(Please note: This feature is available only to select broadcasters).
You can now upload sermons to SermonAudio.com without having to do a thing! 100% hands-free! Here's how it works, we automatically extract the new sermon details from any existing podcast feeds -- for example, the sermon title, subtitle, speaker, date, summary information, Bible reference. Of course we also download the MP3 as well. Your feed is checked daily. And it's all automatically uploaded to your account on SermonAudio! So, once we get it set up, you can just let it go!
Who is this for? This new feature makes the addition of content on a regular basis much easier for ministries that already have a podcast system in place but would like to enjoy the extra exposure on SermonAudio.com!
Here are the tag mappings for podcast feeds:
Title -> Sermon Title (just the title, no date, Scripture references, etc) Speaker -> Speaker (must match an existing speaker name) Date -> Date Preached (optional) EventType -> Event Type Category (optional) BibleText -> Bible Reference (optional, but highly recommended) Subtitle -> Subtitle (optional, 30-character limit) Keywords -> Sermon Keywords (optional, single words) Summary -> Sermon Overview (optional, avoid HTML tags)
If you omit the date or event type information, the system will default to today's date and to the 'Sunday Service' event type.
Tags important note.The tags found in your podcast feed must be set properly in order for our system to correctly map the fields. It is imperative that the speaker name be an exact match of an *existing* speaker entry on SermonAudio already.
In order to get started, please login to the Members Only Area and follow the instructions found in the PERSONAL section.
Please note. The 10-FREE policy is unavailable with this upload method. There is a standard $1 charge for every sermon uploaded this way. It's a small price to pay for broadcasters needing the convenience of automated uploads.
This is an outstanding feature, because even if you're already podcasting, you can archive your podcasts where they can be searched by Bible text, subject, etc. I've heard many broadcasters mention they come to SA and search for a text they're going to be preaching on.
