How to use the podcast planning template in Wrike

Are you struggling to organize your podcast ideas? Is your podcast recording schedule chaotic? Are you missing deadlines or failing to promote your podcast to potential audiences? 

Wrike’s podcast planning template creates a single location to manage every detail of your podcast season, allowing you to focus on creating engaging episodes for your listeners.

Podcasts provide an excellent opportunity to engage with customers, clients, or followers. But creating a successful podcast requires researching and planning, managing guest schedules, post-production editing, and promotional activities. 

This podcast planning template helps you streamline all of your podcast details and creates a system for managing the podcast production process from start to finish. 

Step 1: Log your idea with a request form

Flesh out your podcast idea with a simple, pre-built request form that captures the episode topic, potential guest inclusions, and sponsorship opportunities. 

Set the podcast publication date so each of the production phases aligns with the episode launch. 

Step 2: Access the podcast planning features

Submitting the request form launches the podcast planning template, which includes 10 tasks divided into four phases. 

Choose the podcast format and research topics, create the script, record the podcast, and edit audio files before determining podcast promotion activities and publishing the episode. 

The in-built calendar can be used to schedule recording and episode launch dates, and generate episode reports by topic to get a better sense of the topics already covered. 

Step 3: Monitor podcast success with metrics

Easily monitor podcast success with the metrics dashboard, which allows you to see the number of downloads, leads, listens, and shares. 

View the metrics for each individual episode or sort episodes by topic to better understand each episode’s listener impact. Utilize the episode dashboard to see episode progress at a glance.
