Reignite Your Podcast
Give your show a new "lick of paint" and keep it sounding fresh.
A soft relaunch is a miniature version of a podcast rebrand. The podcast fundamentals stay the same, but you introduce some new elements to prevent the show feeling old or stale.
There are lots of ways to do this, for example...
What is a soft relaunch?
How long has your music track been the theme for your show? For most podcasters the music stays the same for years. There is nothing fundamentally wrong with this at all, however those looking to freshen things up might decide to include a new track.

New Intro / Outro
For some podcasters, the intro and outro they are using are the same ones that they recorded in their very first episode. In a lot of cases the podcast may have evolved to cover different subjects or may have shifted direction over time.

In any of these circumstances a new intro and outro can be a great opportunity to add some calls to action and bring your audience up to date with the latest version of the show.
Turn The Tables

When interviewing so many different guests it can be easy to forget to shine the spotlight on yourself occasionally. Consider inviting someone on to your show to interview you. These episodes can create fantastic engagement.
A lot of podcasts have only one type of episode. Perhaps they are an interview podcast, or a solo podcast show, or maybe they consist of more casual conversations.
It's important to know that you do not have to rigidly stick to one show format and, in fact, introducing new styles of episode can be a fantastic way to create dynamism with your podcast.
