In this article we will talk about posting content to engage the audience so that every second you talk or the podcast plays, the listener is on the edge of their seat.
Firstly, let us talk about the importance of having an engaging plot. You may have what it takes to have a smashing content that will be loved throughout and appreciated, but it does not have the essence or should we say a cherry on top of the sundae.
That’s where these aspects step in, to add every essence there is, and also have a truckload of cherries.
So let’s find out different elements you need to focus on for your podcast,
We all agree when we say that, it is always a different experience when we read something of our own after some time. It helps us to see if we landed the joke, or have we built the right suspense element for the listeners.
So, if you are a person who writes his/her script pre-recording, then it is advised to keep aside your notes/script and review it with a fresh set of eyes and then proceed to record it.
After you know for a fact your podcast script does not have any errors in its writing it is a completely different ball game when it comes to reading it out loud.
Make sure, you read your script out multiple times so that you know if you have missed anything or you might want to change something up to make it as appealing as possible.
Now that you may think that something is off or you can improve your phrasing of sentences, or you can add more elements to your joke for it to land. Redo all of these aspects and approach your article, for it to reach its best of its potential and also to engage the audience in all the required places.
Identify issues and address it
If you think you are particularly messing up at a place and you know that removing it will not do the script justice, then make sure you write it down or make little notes so that when you do read it, you know for a fact that ‘I need to consciously go about this sentence.’
Write it the way you want to read it
In this element it is important you mark up your script, be it with a highlighter or an underline, it could be writing it in a different font or using a different color. Whatever works for you, just make sure you understand where you need to put the emphasis and where it will seem natural for you to pause, at the end of it a podcast is all about what you hear and what you write, so landing the script with good orator skills which can be easily developed will help you in the long run and also help to engage the audience.
You need to know that the podcast is not just for you but for other people as well, hence making an effort to slowly deliver your script so that your listeners grasp it, will set the right mood for your content to be engaging and enjoyable.
Creators can’t be a ‘one-take wonder’ so make sure you record bits and pieces of your podcast episode because the entire point for it is to be joyful and fun, so it may be a long process but redo your piece again and again until you reach the point where you can say, Alright this cannot get better than this and this will engage the audience,
Well, that was all the tips, that you can take up to engage the audience and make them fall in love with your content so that they will come back every time you post.
Remember, these elements are crucial and it is very important that you take this up layer by layer to perfect it and at the end have a wonderful podcast.
