FROM THE DESK OF JEFF DOLAN

End of Year Top Playlists: Are you listed?

I see a lot of people starting to talk about their top most listened to lists to wrap up the year.

And I'm seeing some podcast hosts even reward those who share their Top 10 list with the host's podcast in the number one position.

That's an awesome way to reward your top listeners for sure!

But how important is being listed in these lists?

I would say, if none of your listeners have you listed at all, it's simply a reflection point for you as the host.

Here at year end, it's a perfect time to reflect on who you are serving and ask the right questions about the content you are creating for them.

Do I know the kind of person who would share that I am listed in their Top 5?

Have I heard from real listeners who shared how it helped them?

Do I know why my content connects with them so well?

Are there podcasts listed that are a better version of what I am trying to do?

How can I become the kind of podcast that my listeners would be proud to share with their followers?

Do I feel like creating the podcast is effortless and easy, or like I am pushing a boulder up a hill?

Am I forcing anything? Or am I authentically showing up?

I hope these questions help you take a moment to reflect, reset, and pursue the right goals moving into the new year.

WAVVE DESIGN OF THE WEEK

The smart use of text is a great way to capture interest. This design uses the square animation which pulses over the text to draw attention to it while matching the audio. Paired with the expressive and unique photo, it makes for the right mix needed to stop the scroll. Great work!
