Many people asked me if there are ways to make decent money effortlessly through running a podcast. If the answer is no, then they ask “What’s the point?”
By the way, if you are new to podcasting, every 10,000 downloads translate to just about $400 in sponsorship revenue. Most podcasts struggle to reach 10,000 downloads per month and $400 a month isn’t enough for anyone to work on a project full time. Podcasting can be labor-intensive. On average, it takes hours (if not days) to produce one episode.
Running a quality podcast, seeking interesting guests is a great deal of work. Getting people to listen to your podcast is no easy task. But, the monetization model doesn’t need to downloads exclusively. This blog post covers some of the unusual factors and opportunities to making a profit through podcasting.
I actually think these methods are much easier than the usual path, which is to grow your podcast to X number of downloads per month (usually in the millions), then look into sponsorship opportunities.
