JACKSONVILLE, Fla., August 2, 2023 – The podcasting-specific software company, PodPros, has announced the launch of PodScore: a free personality quiz for podcasters. The completely-free PodScore is the solution to the podcasting industry’s biggest problem, “podfade.” Podfade is the industry term for failing/prematurely ending a podcast. Only 10% of independent podcasters make it to the 1-year mark of their show, and only 5% achieve any meaningful traction/results from their podcast. PodScore’s goal is to help 8,000 podcasters avoid podfade and achieve exponential results by June 15, 2025.
PodScore has been in the works since November 10, 2022. Alex Sanfilippo’s original post about starting this project: New Podacst Catoregy Announced: Actively Established. After that initial announcement, Sanfilippo shared a series of posts explaining the reason behind this project:
- POST# 1: Avoid podfade, See chance of success, fast track results: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | LinkedIn
- POST# 2: Podcasters want TRANSFORMATION, not information: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | LinkedIn
- POST# 3: There are far fewer podcasters than you think: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | LinkedIn
Sanfilippo shared the following when asked about the creation of PodScore:
“As a company, PodPros has done some cool things to serve podcast hosts and guests; all of which have been extremely successful. But, nothing will compare to the impact of PodScore. This is how we’ll leave a mark in the industry – And it won’t have our name on it! It’s not about “us” it’s about elevating independent podcasters and enabling them to further serve the the world; one listener at a time. This is the ultimate solution for helping podcasters avoid podfade. I believe it will be a foundational pillar for the podcasting industry.” – Alex Sanfilippo

Data-Driven and Tested
PodScore performed an alpha and beta test with 298 podcasters to determine the accuracy of the quiz. Sanfilippo and the PodScore team quantified that the results are 98.667% accurate. With such little room to improve accuracy, their primary ongoing focus is to improve/streamline the suggested transformative actions they tell podcasters to take.
How much does PodScore Cost?
PodScore is entirely free. There is no cost involved in any part of the process; there is no payment wall or anything that requires you to enter credit card details. They do not have an upsell at the end, and it’s not a lead funnel.
Does PodScore Have a Catch?
No, PodScore has no catch. PodScore is legitimate, free, and extremely helpful for podcasters. Regarding creating PodScore, the partners said: “We believe podcasting is the most powerful form of media, and purposive-driven podcasters are leading the way in making the world a better place.”
