โ˜‘๏ธ Make sure the name isn't already in use

A name already being used for a different show could greatly compromise your podcast's SEO ๐Ÿค“

โ˜‘๏ธ Set yourself apart from other podcasts

Your name should distill the essence of your podcast, communicating not only the

subject matter but also the unique value it will bring ๐Ÿ’œ

โ˜‘๏ธ Choose a name that's easy to remember and repeat

A name that's easy to remember and repeat will encourage more sharing and recommendation of your podcast. Plus, a short title is more punchy and easy to remember ๐Ÿ“

โ˜‘๏ธ Avoid using the term "Podcast" in the name

Listening platforms tend to regard the word "Podcast" as superfluous information, and this can be to the detriment of your show's SEO ๐Ÿ™…

โ˜‘๏ธ Create an immediate connection with my audience

A podcast name should instantly establish a connection with its target audience, giving them a clear idea of what your podcast will deliver ๐Ÿค

โ˜‘๏ธ Avoid confusing puns

Although creative, puns can sometimes cause confusion or escape your target audience ๐ŸŽฒ

โ˜‘๏ธ Test the name with people I know

Don't hesitate to gather feedback from friends and potential listeners to test its impact ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ

โ˜‘๏ธ Integrate strategic keywords into the name

Including strategic keywords in your content can greatly improve your ranking on listening platforms ๐Ÿท๏ธ

โ˜‘๏ธ Make sure the name is consistent with the language of your content

Make sure your podcast name matches the language of your content ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

โ˜‘๏ธ Take the time you need to choose
