Choosing a Successful Title for Your Podcast

I have spent a tremendous amount of time on iTunes (probably too much) figuring out how to improve my rankings.  One thing I’ve noticed is how incredibly important a name is on iTunes.

What I recommend is that you think about the name of your podcast like you think about a google search.  Let’s suppose you want some tips for improving your online business.  You’ll probably search for something like “Internet Business Tips.”

Then you get millions of results, but you’ll only sort through the first page.  Which of the following search results would you click on?

  • The awesome improvement site
  • 12 ways to double your progress this year
  • The power to improve
  • 101 Internet business tips
  • How to be more successful

I’m willing to bet that you would have clicked on “101 Internet Business Tips.”  Why?  Because it was the only result that clearly told you what you were going to get, and it was exactly what you said you were looking for.

Sounds obvious, right?

But as I look at the new and noteworthy section of podcasts released in the last few weeks, here are some show names.

  • Abundance Thinking
  • Do Over
  • The Empowerment Show
  • Expert Empire
  • The Highly Conscious Man
  • The Middle Path

My question: What are these shows going to give me!??!?!  I won’t take the time to subscribe and find out.

So what’s the lesson?  Choose a name for your podcast that is the exact topic the person is looking for.  Do not be vague.  You can be a bit more creative with the name of your blog than you can be with the title of your podcast.  I like to see titles like “The Internet Marketing Show” or “Social Media Success” or “Photography 101” or “Tech News Today” or “Inside Fly Fishing.”  All of those titles show me that they are precisely on topic for what the person searched for.

Another point is that if you choose a podcast title with a clear name, it also means you get lots of keywords in your title, which definitely helps your show rankings.

Obviously there are some shows with weird names that do succeed, but most of the time those are from people who have established audiences before starting a show.  For most people, I think it’s a poor choice.

I’m in the program, and I love it. I’m ahead of schedule based on their results expectation page (I started late March 2018 and am getting increasing organic traffic). These guys know their stuff and want you to succeed.

Ok I’ve joined this week and this course is incredible. You can’t succeed without this and especially the community that comes with it. Is it worth $350? Yes without doubt. Believe me it certainly is

Lane Watson

I’m in the program. People are posting everyday about their first success, and some of those people are actually starting to hit their income goals. I’ve taken a lot of “authority and niche site” courses, and most are B.S. These guys have a real step by step program that works, ...

I was part of your training just before you went to Project 24. I took what I learned from you (BTW, I am a Director of Digital Media at a large organization and my team is made up of professional SEOs) and we implemented on a site. We have grown ...

Joe Mac

I am very pleased with the product. It keeps me on track so that I don’t get distracted. I personally feel like they “hold your hand” the perfect amount to get you where you need to go, but let you grow a little on your own with some minor “struggles” ...

I’ve bought into a couple of other affiliate marketing/passive income type programs and I’ve been totally disappointed. But not with Jim and Ricky. Let me tell you why. I’m just in the beginning stages of Project 24. I haven’t even figured out a niche yet. What I like about these ...

Grant Handfort

Jim and Ricky provide a really good course for creating a blog website that can be monetized. Like they always say not all students will have the same level of success. From my own experiences so far I would say if you join project 24 and put the work in ...
