Best Practice

Repeat the important points
It’s beneficial to include a call-to-action in your show notes, but also in the audio content. Just like people need to hear an advertisement multiple times before they move forward with a decision, the same goes for retaining information from your podcast. Repeat the important points to your listeners for better retention.

Question of the Week

From Kendra on Facebook
Question: I’m really loving the new “Impactful Play” information on Blubrry. Are there any averages of this statistic? Trying to understand what is a good metric and goal for this number is.

Answer: At this time we do not have an average we can share. Each show is different and as long as you don’t have a huge percentage dropping out before 75%, you are likely good. You have to look at that and decide if something you are doing in the content is causing a drop out earlier. 

Got a question you’d like us to answer on the show? Drop an email to (audio, text, video) and we may use it.

The best place for support with any Blubrry products/services is our ticket system ( Tickets give the whole team access rather than direct emails or calls.
