There is no specific “best time” to launch a podcast. It ultimately depends on your target audience and the content of your podcast. However, some considerations to keep in mind when deciding when to launch your podcast include:
- Seasonal trends: If your podcast covers a topic that is more relevant during certain seasons (e.g. holiday gift guides for a lifestyle podcast), you may want to consider launching during that season.
- Competitor releases: If there are already podcasts in your niche, consider the release schedules of your competitors. You may want to avoid launching your podcast on the same day as a well-known competitor to avoid getting lost in the shuffle.
- Your availability: Consider your own availability and the time you can dedicate to producing and promoting your podcast. It’s important to be consistent with your release schedule, so make sure you have the time and energy to commit to it.
Ultimately, the best time to launch your podcast is when you feel confident in your content and ready to commit to a consistent release schedule.
