Best Way to Create Podcast Intros

What to include in your podcast intro script

1. Who you are: Welcome your listeners to your show

“Hi friends! I’m Kate, and I’m so excited to be on the mic to welcome you to Ditch Busy! My mission with this show is to help entrepreneurs create more time so they can achieve lifestyle freedom!”

2. Share who your podcast is for

“If you’re sick of feeling overwhelmed and frustrated by your lack of progress with your business, and wish you had more time in the day, then this show is for you!”

3. What your listeners will get out of tuning in

“In each episode you’ll learn one tip or strategy you can use today to save yourself time.”

4. Call to action

  • “Wondering how to start a podcast? I have a free course just for you! Visit FreePodcastCourse.com for a free video series that walks you through the first 5 steps you need to take!”
  • “I’m putting together future episode content and I’d love to hear from you! Have a question you want me to cover on an upcoming episode? Email me at Kate@EOFire.com!”
  • “If you found value in today’s episode, and you have a friend in mind who might also find this content helpful, please share this episode with them!”

  • A teaser for the next episode
  • Repeat your call to action
