Podcasting For Profit


 Podcasting For Profit

It's worth noting that, while the blog title seems to be written as a question, it should be written as a statement. The word "podcasting" should not have an ending question mark.

Running your own podcast can be a lucrative way to supplement another income stream, make some extra cash on the side, or even earn enough money to make your job irrelevant.
If you are starting a podcast, you need to make money from it – your podcast cannot be a hobby if it is something that you want to make money from.
As I welcome anybody who wants to start a podcast in the comments section with any questions they have, I have created a list of 10 ways that you can turn your podcast into an additional income stream.
You may not think that these apply to you because of where you are at with your podcasting hobby, but if you are doing podcasts for free or podcasts just for fun then these tips might still be applicable for your future endeavors.
If you are just starting your podcast then you should be aware that the first 100 subscribers to your podcast are the most important.
Getting 100 people to subscribe to your podcast is the start of making money from it.
Making a post on social media for every new episode release is a great way of generating buzz about your podcast and bringing attention to it.
Start building up your audience and get them onboard early by asking them on social media if they would like to subscribe, like, and share your podcast as soon as it comes out.

Once they do those things they will be notified every time you release a new episode, so this is a great way of getting people interested in what you have got going on.

Your first 100 subscribers are going to be your most loyal and dedicated listeners. These people will be your tribe; the ones who love what you have got going on and who want to be involved in everything that you do.
Make sure that these people are happy and well taken care of by rewarding them with awesome stuff from time to time, especially if they have been with you since the very beginning.

If you treat your early listeners right, then they will become active promoters of your podcast which will spread the word about what you are doing and encourage others to subscribe.
This is one of the biggest mistakes that I see people making all the time - not creating an email list for their podcast .
Making a list of all your listeners is a great way for you to engage in discussions with them and ask them questions, but it is also one of the best ways to spread the word about what you have got going on if you are not advertising your podcast.
Having an email list will enable you to communicate with your listeners regularly about the future and about special offers, live giveaways, or other promotions that you want to run.
However, make sure that you do not spam people because they may just unsubscribe from your email once they feel that they are being over-bombed with junk messages.
You should also create an autoresponder so that people can contact you within 24 hours after subscribing and send you messages through it.


The conclusion is a statement that explains what the article is about and what you have learned. It is usually written in small lettering on the bottom of an article.
I think that one of the most important lessons that I learned from my podcast was about always giving my audience more than they expect and never asking for something in return.
So far, I've done all those things, but if more people start listening to my podcast then it might be worth changing a few of these things now to get them hooked on me and encourage them to share what I do.
