How to initially announce intentions via Unicom?

When you are inbound into an uncontrolled airport and tune into the frequency, should you first announce your position (left downwind, right base, etc) or announce that you’re inbound for landing

Announce you are inbound first giving if you are left traffic, right traffic or straight in! Hope this helped!

Inbound for landing first.

Thanks, that cleared it up for me

After calling inbound though it is important to let the other aircraft in the vicinity know where you are in regards to the runway. Be sure to report your positions after calling inbound.
