Ep 77: 3 Things to Consider When Choosing a Podcast Name

The Lazy Girl's Guide to Podcasting: Podcasting Tips for How to Start and Run a Podcast

12-03-2024 • 9 mins

I know first-hand how tough it can be to land on the perfect name for your podcast. So if you're struggling to name your new podcast, or wondering if you should rename your existing show, I want to share three crucial podcasting tips to consider:

First, ensure your title targets keywords your audience is actually searching for. You want your podcast to appear when listeners search relevant terms on Apple Podcasts or Spotify. Generic names or obscure puns likely won't rank well.

Second, create a title that speaks to your listeners and draws them in. The name should clearly communicate what they can expect from hitting play on your latest episode.

And third, it should be obvious at a glance what your show is about. Strong podcast discovery happens through word-of-mouth, with fans recommending episodes to their friends. So make it easy for them to explain what you cover.

The goal is to end up with a podcast name optimized for discovery and engagement. I want you to attract your ideal audience, keep them hooked, and make it effortless for them to share your show with like-minded friends. So let searchability, intrigue and clarity guide you as you name or even rename your podcast.

Highlights:

  • The importance of selecting a podcast name that reflects content and resonates with your target audience
  • Being open to changing podcast title if needed
  • Value of experimentation and adaptation in podcast naming
  • Strategies for naming a podcast to improve searchability and discoverability
  • Using relevant keywords in podcast titles for search rankings
