Do you know 80% of listeners listen to every podcast episode they start?
Yes, podcasts are popular and winsome enough to keep you hooked. And why not? It’s the realistic medium for your busy life. You can listen to podcasts without needing to watch the screen while you commute, cook dinner or work out.
So, if you’re a fan of podcasts, why not take the leap and start your own? You get to build a community of listeners who share your interests.
In this blog, we’ll share some quick, easy, and efficient tips for you to start podcasting.
1. Content rules for beginners
First impressions last. You must be loud and clear about your content niche to establish credibility immediately. For instance, it can be Business, Comedy, or Sports. Once you are sorted with the niche, consider a catchy podcast title. Also, keep your title easy to pronounce and make a buzz before posting your first episode.
Pro tip: Talk about it on social media or go for promotion to other podcast shows.
2. Make your podcasts mobile-friendly
According to statistics, 73% of people listen to podcasts on their smartphones. But mobile users are often on the go. So you must keep your podcast to the point and no longer than 15 minutes. It is paramount to be available on mobile-friendly platforms such as Apple Podcasts or Spotify to make it easy for listeners to access your podcast.
3. Plan it out!
Don’t treat podcasts as regular phone conversations with your friend. Create a plan for each episode, including the guest you will invite, an outline of the content, and questions to ask. Your goal should be to build an authentic connection with your audience. And then leave room for spontaneity to make it better. All you need to do is strike a balance between spontaneity and structure to make a persuasive podcast.
4. Talk to people with whom you are genuinely interested in talking
When you are truly interested in your guest, it will show in your conversation and will never feel forced. You’ll be bouncing questions off each other, and the energy will be electric. This can help you dig deeper into the topic and create a value-oriented podcast.
Plus, your listeners can usually tell when someone is being fake or insincere, so it is important to be true to yourself and your interests.
5. Put your audience first
Your voice matters. But if you want higher conversion rates, put your audience first. When you tailor your content to the needs of your audience, they feel like their needs are being heard. It develops a sense of trust, and they are more likely to keep coming back and sharing your content with others. So, prioritize your audience and ultimately build a loyal following.
Starting a podcast can seem daunting for beginners. But, with these tips, you’ll be podcasting like a pro in no time. Consider all the five tips meticulously before posting your first podcast. But the catch over here is to repeat it for every episode and maintain consistency over time.
