How to Leave a Five Star Review for any Podcast You Love

Podcasts are such an efficient way to squeeze amazing content into our everyday life. It’s such a blessing when I hear listeners tell me how much they love to listen to my podcast. Each week it’s my goal to fill them up with good content that is usable in growing their creative business.

If this describes you as a listener, I’d love to invite you to head over to Apple and leave a five-star review for the podcast. It’s super easy to do and it helps the podcast gain traction in order to be heard by so many more people. 

If you’re new to podcast reviews, don’t worry – it’s easy!

I’m sharing these easy-to-follow steps for you to leave a review on any podcast you love!

How to Leave a Podcast Review

Podcast reviews are one of the best ways to support your favorite shows. Not only do they help promote the show, but they also give other potential listeners an idea of what the show is all about.

Step by Step Instructions on Leaving a Review on Apple

Step One 

Open the Podcasts app on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

Step Two

Navigate to the page of the podcast you want to leave a review for. You can find it by searching for “Creatives on Fire” or selecting it from your library. Just note that you’ll have to go to the series page which shows all the episodes, not just the page for a single episode.

Step Five

Next, select a star rating at the top — you have the option of choosing between one and five stars. (I know you’ll want to choose five because, after all, you’re taking the time to do this for me…)

Step Six

Using the text box at the top, write a title for your review. Then, in the lower text box, write your review. Your review can be up to 300 words long.

Step Seven

Once you’ve finished, select “Send” or “Save” in the top-right corner. 

Step Eight

If you’ve never left a podcast review before, enter a nickname. Your nickname will be displayed next to any reviews you leave from here on out. 

Step Nine

After selecting a nickname, tap OK. Your review may not be immediately visible, but assuming you didn’t write anything offensive or spammy, it should be posted soon.
