How to Make Your Podcast Episode Titles Click-Worthy


One of the most important things to think about when creating your podcast is the title of your episodes. A well-thought out title can create curiosity and make your episode irresistible to potential listeners, while a bland and boring title can discourage people from even giving your show a chance.

In this blog, we'll be sharing our top 3 tips for creating click-worthy podcast episode titles.

But first, why is it important to have click-worthy podcast episode titles?

Podcasts are a great way to connect with potential customers and share your message in an engaging way. In order for people to actually listen to your podcast, you need to have click-worthy podcast episode titles that accurately reflect the content of the episode. This way, people are more likely to listen to your episode and learn about your business.

Some tips for creating click-worthy podcast episode titles include using keywords that people are searching for, using numbers or bullet points in your title, and making sure your title is attention-grabbing. Keep in mind that your title is often the first thing potential listeners will see, so make it count!

Here are the steps you need to follow to get increased listens:

1. Create curiosity

The first step to creating a successful podcast is to create curiosity. This means that your title and your content must be compelling enough to make people want to listen.

Get creative with your titles! Use puns, play on words, and put attention-grabber words on your titles. This is your chance to really stand out from the rest of the podcasts out there.

When it comes to creating curiosity, the paradox is a powerful mental framework that Capsho uses in our AI-generated titles. If you want to do this, simply contrast the results that your listener wants with something unexpected.

For example, if your listener wants to lose weight, you could title your podcast "The 5 Worst Foods to Eat if You Want to Lose Weight." This would create curiosity and lead your listener to want to find out more.

2. Make it quick and easy to read

The second step is to make your podcast title quick and easy to read. This means using short, simple words that your audience will understand.

Your podcast titles should be short, sweet, and to the point. No one wants to click on a title that's too long and wordy - keep it under 15 words if possible.

If you are prone to over-complicating, use a tool like Hemingway to keep your titles at a fourth grade reading level.

3. Include keywords

Your title should include keywords that your ideal listeners will be searching for. This will help you to be found more easily in search engines and will also help you to connect with your target audience. Try to include keywords that are specific to your niche and that will be of interest to your target audience.

When crafting your title, be sure to lead with value. This means that your title should focus on what your listener will gain from listening to your podcast. This could be insights, knowledge, or even entertainment. Whatever it is, be sure to make it clear in your title so that your listeners know what they can expect.

Podcasts are a great way to connect with potential customers and share your message in an engaging way. In order for people to actually listen to your podcast, you need to have click-worthy podcast episode titles that accurately reflect the content of the episode. This way, people are more likely to listen to your episode and learn about your business.
