When should I release new episodes?

Hi friends! I just now published my story that I’ve been working on for awhile now, and I’m wondering when I should upload the other stories. I have the episodes all finished but I want to keep my audience interested. Should I upload daily or weekly?

I think weekly uploads are the best kind of uploads when it comes to engaging audiences.
Try publishing 1-2 episodes per week (I wouldn’t do more than 3, but it’s up to you and it also depends on how much time you’ve got to code) and in the meantime be active on Instagram and the Forums and post little sneak peaks of your story to give the readers something to look forward to each time!


I thought about posting weekly as well, but I wasn’t exactly sure which would be the best route to choose from. Sadly, I don’t have Instagram, but I can always use the Forums. I’m thinking about uploading just one more episode tomorrow for the week, but I don’t want to exactly upload too much since I just published it today, lol :blush:

I’d say wait a few days before publishing new chapters, just to give the readers a little bit of a cliff hanger and something to look forward to.
What’s your story name? I’d really like to read it :blush:

It’s called Death Never Does Us Part! It’s a really cool story about a girl who meets the ghost who used to live at the apartment before he died. I feel like it still needs more updates, so updates will probably be added here and there. Even though it’s published, I’m still updating it, lol :grin:

I’ll check it out tomorrow then! :white_heart:
I’m pretty tired right now I’m going to sleep lol

The timing of releasing new episodes depends on several factors, such as your audience’s preferences, your production schedule, and your marketing strategy. Here are some general tips to consider when deciding when to release new episodes:

  1. Consistency is key: Consistency in releasing new episodes is essential for building an engaged audience. Consider setting a regular schedule for releasing new episodes, such as weekly or bi-weekly, and stick to it as much as possible.
  2. Timing is everything: Consider when your audience is most likely to be listening to podcasts. For example, if your target audience is commuters, releasing new episodes on weekday mornings might be ideal. Or, if your audience is students, releasing new episodes on weekends might be better.
  3. Don’t overload your audience: Releasing too many episodes at once can overwhelm your audience, leading to lower engagement and retention rates. Consider spacing out your episodes to keep your audience interested and coming back for more.
  4. Consider special events: If you have a special event or launch coming up, consider releasing a new episode to coincide with it. This can help generate buzz and increase engagement.

Ultimately, the best time to release new episodes will depend on your unique situation and audience. Consider experimenting with different release schedules and tracking your audience’s engagement to find what works best for you.

Thanks! I don’t want to overload my audience and I don’t my story to not seem interesting. I’m thinking about posting every week, for example every Saturday.

Weekends is probably a good idea depending on your timezone Saturday for you might be Sunday for me :sweat_smile:

Once a week is probably ideal, while giving your readers sneak peaks before the release… So they have something to look forward to…

I’ll check out your story :+1:t2:
