You want a place for your listeners to find out more about you and your show, right? Show notes are essential for podcasts.
I'll be honest, I have ADHD and large blocks of text bore me (and forget about trying to read a word-for-word transcript).
Like many podcast listeners, I listen on the go, so if a host talks about something I'm interested in and can't write it down right away, I like being able to quickly sift through show notes to find exactly what I'm looking for in an organized style.
Spelling, grammar, and punctuation
Maintain your credibility by having clean copy be a part of your podcast. Your show notes should be as clear as your audio.
I have more than 10 years' experience as a writer and editor for print publications (before podcasting captured my heart).
Links, Information, and Resources
If I hear you say in your show "and I'll have a link to that in the show notes," you better believe I will put that link in there. Your guests' contact information will be featured in the show notes for listeners to easily find out more about them.
Notes can be tailored for your show just the way you like them, including quotes from guests, which can be used in Tweets and marketing materials!
