Hey savvies! Welcome back to another episode of the podcast. We skipped releasing a new episode last week as my son was home sick all week and I hadn’t recorded a new episode for the week so I decided to just skip releasing a new episode so I didn’t have to stress about when I would be able to record. 

Skipping a week isn’t something I advise anyone to do and definitely isn’t something I do often but sometimes life throws you a curveball and it is what it is. That just goes to show how important batching is. 

This episode is for those of you who have yet to launch your podcast or are planning on revamping your cover art. 

I feel like cover art isn’t something talked about too often but it’s definitely a key piece of your podcast so today I’m going to be sharing 5 elements that your cover art needs. 

  1. Be the correct size (3000 x 3000 pixels) – You will not get approved by Apple Podcasts if your artwork isn’t the proper size so make sure that it’s the correct size from the get go so you don’t run into any issues when it comes to the submission process.
  2. Make sure the podcast name is in the top portion of the graphic + easy to read – Make sure that your podcast name is in a legible font and big enough to read on a mobile device as this is where most people will be listening to your podcast
  3. Have your name on it somewhere – This really helps with brand recognition so having “with your name” somewhere on the graphic helps people know right off the bat who is the host.
  4. Keep it simple – Trying to add too many different fonts, colors, titles, CTAs will make your artwork look sloppy.
  5. Use other cover art as your inspiration but don’t copy it – It’s always good to look elsewhere for inspiration but make sure you’re not copying others completely because that isn’t a good look.
