How To Leave a Rating & Review on iTunes
Stating the Obvious:
Apple Podcast App needs help. It is confusing to navigate and it does not make it easy for listeners of podcasts to leave a Rating & Review. #bummer. Most listeners tell me they tried to leave me a review, but gave up because they could not figure it out. Until Apple listens to feedback, it is up to the podcaster to make it easy for your listeners to subscribe and leave a Rating & Review.
Educate Your Listeners.
Tell them why:
Leaving a rating and review supports the podcaster and the show.
Improve rankings in iTunes.
Shows engagement which may attract sponsors.
Keeps podcaster motivated to make more shows.
Guide them how:
Rather than tell listeners to go do it, talk them through how to do it.
