There is a new way to promote your small business podcasts and livestreams. It’s called GetVokl and it is ideal for both new and experienced podcasters who want develop podcast listeners and enjoy their content.
What is GetVokl?
GetVokl is a free, a dynamic live streaming platform designed to help podcasters, coaches, teachers, bloggers, journalists or others who want their live streaming to reach people on multiple platforms.
What is the benefit of using GetVokl for podcasters?
If you are a podcaster, you already know how hard it is to monetize your podcast.
Most podcasters make money from corporate sponsors. But what if this strategy didn’t work for you? Or what if you have a decently sized engaged community, but no way for them to contribute money?
Well with GetVokl you can make your own live streaming channel. Basically, you host your own show and you can also invite guests and your audience to join you on stage. You can also explore and join other GetVokl Live events.
It’s similar to a radio show, but with a video and you can also stream your show to Facebook, YouTube and Periscope simultaneously!
There are many other platforms that you can use to profit from your content, but at this point, GetVokl is 100% the only one.
GetVokl Gets Great User Reviews
Since I am not a podcaster, I have not had the chance to use this platform myself. So I researched some of the GetVokl reviews on the web.
It seems that a lot of Blab users who were disappointed when Blab quit found a friend in GetVokl.
GetVokl users appreciate the quality of community engagement. They also congratulate the GetVokl development team for listening to their users.
Many of these GetVokl reviews have been written over the past couple of years. And I’m sure they’ve made a lot of improvements to the platform since then.

While GetVokl is not included in this Patreon Alternatives table, I am sharing it for you so that you can see the other platforms that will let you enjoy your podcasts and live broadcasts.
GetVokl can be an alternative to Patreon
If you’re already on Patreon, and looking for an alternative because you think their prices are too high? GetVokl might be an option for you.
Here are two advantages of GetVokl over Patreon:
- GetVokl enables creators to host interactive live video broadcasts so they can interact with and monetize their audience. Patreon does not offer such experiences.
- Creators can host events on GetVokl with exclusive access to clients. The creators of Patreon use GetVokl as a benefit for their clients. But they can also monetize directly on GetVokl.
GetVokl review: final thoughts
Before choosing a tool to produce and promote your podcasts, make sure you understand your overall goals and how one of these platforms will help you achieve them.
I recommend that you take the time to review each platform before committing. Once you’ve made your commitment to a platform, make sure you focus on that platform and learn as much as you can about it. This way you don’t dilute your podcasting efforts.
Increased income for content creators.
Integrates with Patreon so you can donate to specific audiences and host VIP events.
Create your own channel – so your content is “syndicated” to a larger audience than yours.
“Tips” from the community using VCoin, a native currency of GetVokl. Some people may not be comfortable with this.
Hosting all of your content on GetVokl alone can put it at risk if the platform doesn’t.
Although GetVokl grows your audience, you need to have a great community to make decent money.
