YOUR PODCAST DESCRIPTION
While every show is different, and thus, every description is different there are some items you may want to include:
Get Them Saying Yes
By stating an obvious truth, you show that you "Get" your audience and get them saying, "yes."
Frequency, Format, and Facts
This can be your schedule
Your format (solo, interview, panel, narrative).
Facts: Accomplishments of the host to establish street cred and answer, "Why should we listen to you?"
Who is This For?
By specifically identifying who the show is for, you better attract your target audience.
Why Should They
What value and/or what benefit is the listener going to walk away with?
Call to Action
Your call to action in your description (as this will be seen in all the apps) should be to play or, even better, follow/subscribe. Regarding asking them to go to your website or other calls to action, do those in episodes AFTER they start listening.
YOU DON'T BENEFIT UNTIL YOUR AUDIENCE BENEFITS.
Some people like to start of with a question.
THE FORMAT OF MY DESCRIPTION IS OFF
This is another reason to keep your description short. The more paragraphs you want and bold, italics, etc it is going to look weird. In most apps, the description is simple text. If you do include links, they won't work.
All you can do it enter things the right way and hope for the best.
