Tips on naming your podcast - Season #5 - Episode #237
1. What is the tone of your show
If you are not creating a podcast as an extension of your brand, business or blog, you will need to think about the tone of the show.
For example, will it be professional, personal, funny, educating, enlightening, inspirational, motivational?
Whatever it is, choose a podcast name that reflects the tone of the show. If it’s going to be funny or humorous, then try incorporating something witty - write down words that are associated with the mood.
Try using relatedwords.org to search for words that match the feel of your podcast!
2. Make your name short and sweet!
Good podcast names are always short, catchy, and easy to remember. No matter how you choose to name a podcast, you want to make it easy for your target audience to find you.
A good rule of thumb here is to cap it at 3-4 syllables tops! Anything longer than that may make it difficult for your audience to remember - a shorter name is better in general.
3. Research your competition
Check out the names of other podcasts in the same niche, it is a great way to gauge podcast names from others in the industry. The goal is to quickly have listeners identify your niche within the first couple of seconds.
4. Make sure your name isn’t already taken
Sounds like a no brainer, right? Well you never know, make sure to do a Google Search and this also includes profile and business pages on other social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
You don’t want to make the mistake of registering an available domain - but then realizing later on that someone else has already used the same one on social media!
It takes only a few minutes to go through each platform to see if your podcast’s name or a variation of it has already been taken by other people.
You also want to make sure that the name you are choosing is not trademarked, head over to USPTO.gov and do a search to make sure that your name isn’t infringing on any intellectual property!
So setting the right tone of your podcast show with the name and logo is important, especially if you are planning on growing your show in 2021!
