Pro Pod Tip: First Impressions Matter

While people sharing podcast engagements stats that show listeners drop out within minutes of even seconds are suspect at best since they're all based on streaming users only as opposed to the downloads that serve the vast majority of your audience, I do think it's important to start your show off with a bang.

The episode number, name of the show and a high quality informative and descriptive intro should all be within the first thirty seconds of your show. If you wait longer than that you run the risk of new listeners wandering away from your content before they even know whether or not it's for them.
