Five On-Air Scripts to get More Podcast Reviews
Getting reviews from your podcast listeners starts by asking them to give them! In this article we'll look at 5 ways you can ask for reviews during one of your podcast episodes
We've collected some of our favorite ways that podcasters ask for reviews and we're sharing them here with you. Take these as they are or modify them to better suit the voice of your podcast.
The Simple Ask
Let's keep it simple for the first example - directly asking!
Hi PODCASTNAME Listeners - just a reminder to please leave a review for the podcast by going to www.getpodreviews.com/YOURPODCASTURL
The Read and Request
With this method - you share a review that you have gotten recently and then prompt users to leave something similar
Suzie on Apple Podcasts says 'Love the podcast - it's amazing' - listeners if you love the podcast and think it's amazing - then leave a review by visiting www.getpodreviews.com/YOURPODCASTURL
Support By Review
Here we ask for support of the podcast - not in the financial sense - but by giving a review
Listeners - if you'd like to support this podcast and help it grow, you can do so by leaving a review for the podcast at www.getpodreviews.com/YOURPODCASTURL
It's always good to have a goal - challenge your listeners with a review goal - and make it an attainable and reasonable goal. For example if you currently already have 10 reviews - maybe make your goal be 50. If you already have 100 - then make your goal something like 500
Hey PODCASTNAME Listeners - just a reminder that we have a goal to reach 50 reviews by the end of this month - at the time of this episode's recording we have 22 - you can help us reach our goal by visiting www.getpodreviews.com/YOURPODCASTURL
Full disclosure - we don't recommend this for podcast's that are just starting out and we also suggest you check local and state laws for running contests - but a contest/giveway for reviews can be a powerful motivator to your listeners
Listener's we have a giveway! Here's how it works - leave a review for the podcast by visiting www.getpodreviews.com/YOURPODCASTURL - once you've submitted your review send me an email or a DM on social media with a link to the review you submitted. We'll randomly draw a submitter at the end of the month who will win a gift card/t-shirt/coffee cup/etc..etc...
In the end
Remember that consistency is key - the more you ask for reviews - the more reviews you'll end up getting. Stay consistent and the reviews will come!
