A podcast trailer is great for letting potential listeners know
what your show is about,
as well as helping promote your show on
social media, newsletters and elsewhere. But how long should a podcast trailer be?
Well one thing to remember is it's not the same as a podcast introductory
episode. An introductory episode is more like a normal episode and can last
anywhere between 5 and 10 minutes. A trailer on the other hand is short, punchy
and is meant to act as a quick way for you to tell listeners what to expect
from your podcast. Ideally a trailer should have who you are, what the podcast
is about, what listeners can expect as takeaways, how often you publish, what
days you publish and where to find your podcast. The length of time can vary but
most effective trailers are normally between 60 and 90 seconds. That's long
enough to get across what you need and short enough to keep it punchy. Until the
next time, happy podcasting. If you're enjoying One Minute Podcast Tips,
