If you're planning to start a podcast and you're wondering how to structure a podcast, this episode of Ultimate Podcast Marketing is for you! I'm going to be sharing how to structure a podcast episode in 3 easy steps that will leave your listeners wanting more, every time!
First, what is a podcast structure?
Every podcast is made up of segments. Those segments are essentially the framework, or outline of your episodes. Not every episode will have the exact same framework each time, but there are a few key segments that you should absolutely include in every episode no matter what, and I will cover those in the episode.
Step 1: Choose Your Podcast Segments
There are three basic podcast segments every episode should have, no matter what. An intro, the main content, and an outro.
You could also include special segments, like rapid fire questions, or fun games that you play with your guests from time to time! Who knows, you could even add a random rant corner to your podcast!
Step 2: Tell A Story
The best content always tells a story. Even if you're creating content like this episode of Ultimate Podcast Marketing, there's an opportunity to weave storytelling into your episodes.
In the main content of your episode, think of the structure starting with the "hook" or "tilt" followed by three heightening beats, a climax, and a resolution.
Step 3: Always Close With A Call To Action
The easiest and perhaps most important of all these steps - make sure every episode has a specific call to action for your listeners! This essential piece is what will turn listeners into loyal fans!
