In the past few years, marketers have created branded podcasts, and they post episodes on platforms like SoundCloud. If your company is one of those, and you’d like to get more exposure for your latest audio content, displaying a live-updating feed on your website makes perfect sense. Here, you’ll learn how to embed your latest SoundCloud tracks on WordPress, Squarespace, Wix, and any other website.

If you are just looking to show just one SoundCloud track on the website’s sidebar or a blog post, then the default SoundCloud embed is your best choice.

However, most marketers are keen to customize the look & feel of the embed - and combine SoundCloud tracks with posts from other social media channels into one feed. That’s where a social media aggregator comes in handy – with an all-in-one tool like Flockler, you can make sure latest content appears on your website without manual work.
