Requesting a channel on Recast is super quick and easy to do. But if you’re still trying to figure out if Recast is the right platform for you, here are a few things to consider when completing your channel request form.

We’ll need you to tell us who you are
When completing our online channel request form, please provide us with as much information as you can about the kind of content you would like to share on your Recast channel, along with relevant examples of the kind of content you are producing at the moment. This will help us make sure your content is appropriate for Recast.

Do you want to monetise your content?
Publishers (content creators and rights holders) on Recast earn for every single view and receive up to 85% of the revenue generated by their content. If you are producing content or would like to start producing content that you think your fans and followers would be willing to pay for, Recast is definitely the right platform for you.

Do you have an existing fanbase?
Recast’s platform is packed full of features that will enhance your experience as a content creator, but our global reputation is still growing. So when you set up a channel on Recast, promoting your content to followers on your existing social channels and platforms will be crucial to develop your audience.

Is your content right for Recast?
Exclusive, first look, live, and longer form content works really well on Recast – giving your fans something they can’t get elsewhere, and something that they are willing to pay for – even if you’re only charging a small amount. However, if you make most of your content for Instagram (e.g. Reels) and TikTok, then Recast may not be the right fit for you.

Why should I use Recast instead of YouTube or Patreon?
Every platform works in its own unique way. Recast can work alongside your existing social media channels and platforms, offering subscription-free access to your premium content. To find out how we compare to YouTube and Patreon, check out our comparisons page.

What happens once I’ve submitted my form?
Once your request has been approved, our team will send you a unique link to set up your channel, so you can start uploading content asap! Check out our ‘quick start publisher guide’ for all the info you’ll need to create your channel.
