The script is the foundation of your podcast (and your YouTube), no wonder it seems so stressful. It is actually not difficult to write a script that has a natural flow and sounds good to your audience. You need to keep a few points in mind that will help you write a perfect script every single time.
Here is your ultimate guide to writing a podcast script that people will love listening to.
Talk About Things You Know and Are Passionate About
Scriptwriting starts with selecting a topic. Choose a topic that interests you. Make sure you are providing information that people will find interesting.
It is better to talk about things you are passionate about over something trending. Your interest in a topic is evident from the way you speak or talk about it. The more interested you are, the better information you will have to share. And the more your audience will like it.
Conduct thorough research and find topics that interest you and are trending as well.
Keep Intro Short and Crisp
Write a Conversational Script
Divide Your Content
This is something that is one of the major reasons why people avoid listening to podcasts. There is so much fluff, right from the beginning of the podcast. It is one thing to mention sponsors and introduce oneself. But to mention information that isn’t even related to the topic you are talking about makes no sense.
If you have a huge audience interested in knowing what you are up to and what’s up in your life, then it makes sense. But for a beginner, most of your audience is landing on your podcast because of the title you have. They want information about it and don’t want you to beat around the bush.
The more to-the-point information you offer, the faster you can grow your audience.
Podcasting is not much different from Youtubing when it comes to writing a script. But you need to understand that the pressure of writing a good script in the case of a podcast is more. The reason is that in your podcast all you have is your voice. The script keeps the audience entertained. On YouTube, one can use expressions, backgrounds, props, and relevant clips and texts.
