Content is king, and so are blogs. No matter what people say about social media, blogs are still in the game, and they’re awesome. When it comes to podcasting, there’s a secret ingredient that will make your podcast shine much more than it is, both on Audio Streaming Platforms and on Google and other research tools: show notes. That’s right, notes for your show. It may sound easy, we’d like to share with you a few steps that we have found very helpful when it comes to writing show notes for multiple shows.
These are nodalab ingredients to make show notes for your podcast best friend:
1- Say hi to your audience: Like your show intro and making a trailer for your podcast can help you with discoverability, people want to know what your podcast is all about in a few written lines. If you can capture the essence and the voice tone of your show through those lines, we promise you that your show essence will help you get where you want to go.
2- Share some resources: As we become natural-born podcasters, it’s very common on podcasting that as the interview goes by, resources such as books, movies, tv shows or acticles are shared by the host. Did you share a cooking recipe, a product on Amazon, or a promo code to get a discount at some website? Link them all on your show notes. You’ll help your audience find it all in a short period of time! Time is gold.
3- Choose your words carefully: Use popular phrases, keywords to make your content stand out from the competition, and other references that will attract your audience and get hooked with your content.
4- Add timestamps: We don’t always have time to listen to a whole podcast in one specific moment, that’s why we recommend you to add at least five or six timestamps to help people find the information they’re looking for when they find your show!
