How to add your Pledge Audio & Pledge URL for NPR One

Listeners will hear your pledge audio when the pledge card in the app surfaces. The pledge card has a "Donate Now" button on it which directs users to the pledge page you designated in the "NPR One Pledge URL" field in StationConnect.
 

In an effort to create an local tie with each listening experience, this important element tells the listener to pledge to “YOUR STATION on NPR One.” Pledge URL and pledge audio are key elements of making NPR One a local experience for your listener.

Setting Up Your NPR One Pledge URL

  1. Log into StationConnect. Note: Your login information is the same as nprstations.org

  2. You will see a list of stations assigned to your user on the left.

  3. If you are a member of a station with a network, you will see the parent station account has a small NPR One logo next to it. For your pledge URL to show up for all available stations in your account, you only need to upload your station pledge URL in one place - the parent.

  4. Click on the parent station call letters.

  5. Scroll down to the "NPR One" section

  6. Locate the  "NPR One Pledge URL" field and enter your donation link
     

Setting Up Your Pledge Audio

Your Pledge Audio should be no longer than 30 seconds. You can use it to thank your listeners for listening to your station on NPR One. You can also encourage your listeners to "tap the donate button on the screen" to help your station bring them more of the in-depth content they expect to hear from your station.
