You can create show level trailers for your podcast. Your trailer will help get your show discovered and get your listeners excited about your full-length episodes. Think of your trailer as your show's elevator pitch and a way to hook new listeners.
Below, we hope to answer most of your questions, and when you're ready to create your trailer check out this step-by-step guide.
What is a show trailer?
Think of a show trailer like a TV series trailer - it's meant to give your potential audience an opportunity to see what you and your podcast are all about so that they can decide if they'd like to tune in.
Why would I want to create a trailer?
Recording a trailer increases your podcast's discoverability and gives you the opportunity to gain new listeners by giving them an exciting preview of what your show is all about.
How long can the trailer be?
Your trailer must be under 60 seconds long.
Can I make a trailer for my episodes?
The trailer feature is specific for show level trailers, but you can also make episode level trailers (which would tease each of your episodes) by tagging them as a trailer when you set up the episode.
Can I create a trailer on web?
Currently, creating and publishing trailers is only available on mobile.
Do I have to create a trailer?
Nope! But we recommend it, as it will help your podcast get discovered by new audiences.
Can I import audio into Anchor for my trailer?
Yes! Friendly reminder that your audio segment must be under one minute.
What if I already recorded a trailer episode? Can I convert it into an official trailer?
Yes! You'll want to make sure it's less than 60 seconds long, and from there you can export that audio onto your device, and upload it back into Anchor as a trailer.
