How to Perfect Your Show Notes and Boost Your Podcast Engagement


     1. Define the Purpose of Your Show Notes

The first step to creating great show notes is to define their purpose. Ask yourself what you want your show notes to accomplish. 3 Paragraphs max in my opinion.

  1. Use a Consistent Format

Consistency is key when it comes to show notes. Use a standard format for every episode to make it easy for your listeners to navigate your notes. Start with a brief introduction to your episode topic and guest, then provide a summary of the content. Use bullet points or numbered lists to break down complex ideas and highlight key takeaways. Use Google Drive to save all show notes in case your account gets deleted from your hosting platform, mine did with Buzzsprout.

  1. Include Relevant Links and Resources

One of the best ways to add value to your show notes is to include relevant links to what you were talking about during that episode.  Also, whatever the main CTA you are trying to get listeners to do, put these at the top of your show notes.  Make it easy!

  1. Promote Your Website and Social Media Channels

Your show notes are an excellent opportunity to promote your website and social media channels. Include links to your website, blog, and social media profiles in your show notes, and encourage your listeners to follow you for more great content. You can also include a call-to-action (CTA) to join your email list or leave a review of your podcast on Apple Podcasts. Do these at the bottom of your shown notes.
