I'm starting a podcats that will be named after my company, Datsusara. I'm thinking that rather than make a whole new website and since it is realted to my company that pehaps I could use the blog area to be a podcast area and then just have a reffering web link to find it like www.dspodcast.com goes to my shopify site at www.dsgear.com/blogs/dspodcast . Seems to me like the blog ofrmat pages would work well enough for this, what do y'all think?
Kyle here from Shopify.
Using your blog as an area to post your podcasts is a great idea. In case you didn't know, you can embed soundbites that are hosted elsewhere and post them to Shopify by using the 'insert video button' to embed the soundbite.
For example, you could use something like SoundCloud to host your podcasts which you could then upload into a page or blog post on Shopify. The best part, your customers/listeners would be able to listen to your podcast without ever leaving your site.
Yes, SoundCloud can be a great solution. They have a nice API that will allow you to modify the look and feel of the player. You can enbed that in your blog pages.
Have a look at the widget API https://developers.soundcloud.com/docs/api/html5-widget
