47: Podcast Show Notes That Work!

If the enthusiasm for your podcast is lagging because you are getting stuck in the rut of podcast show notes creation, I feel your pain. Show notes are definitely one of the less enjoyable aspects of putting together a complete production of a show. But it doesn’t have to be such a painful thing - there are ways you can make the process smoother, easier, and more efficient.

DC Podfest and the Triple Power of Killer Show Notes

I was recently asked to speak at DC Podfest and the topic I chose was, “The Triple Power of Killer Show Notes.” The session was very well received and you know what - since I’m a podcaster myself I decided to record it so you could hear what I had to share with the great folks who were at DC Podfest. By the way, you can meet some of them on my last episode.

So if you want to learn how to create your own podcast show notes - exactly like the professionals on my team here at Podcast Fast Track do - I’m going to unload the truck on you in this presentation. Heck, I’m even giving you my slide deck from the presentation in the resources below.

Here’s how you really CAN produce your own podcast show notes easier and quicker.
