How To Earn Money From Podcast?

Okay so here’s the thing. If you are only thinking of earning money by creating a podcast, then forget it, you’ll never be able to get enough money out of it. You need to be dedicated and focused on your content more than on money. This applies to all aspects of your life.

That being said: yes, money can be made by creating podcasts. It depends upon the quality & the quantity of the podcast episodes that you create.

Some people prefer quantity, but some prefer otherwise. However, it’s the mixture of both of them which brings you a lot of money.

Now coming on to How To Make Money Via Podcasting :

Firstly, you need to publish a lot of good content. Then building upon that content, you should do social media marketing/ digital marketing.

Podcasts usually earn money via 5 main categories :

1. Advertisements :

It is a prevailing practice usually done by Podcasters, as they earn by showing advertisements in the middle of their episodes. This practice is also performed by music providers such as Gaana and Spotify, in their free plans.
2. Sponsors :
Podcasts can be sponsored by sponsors, there are many types of sponsors such as Title sponsors, Season sponsors, Episode sponsors.

3. Product Placement A.k.a. Affiliate income :
Usually, podcasters earn from Affiliate incomes, as they give a shout-out to the sponsors of the videos, and provide an affiliate link on their sites or in their podcasts description over YouTube.

4. Promotion
A Podcaster can also earn through promoting others’ songs, books, movies, web-series, and more. The paid promotions depend on the Popularity and Influence of the Podcasters.

5. Subscription & Paid Content :

Many podcasters charge a subscription fee on their sites or channels. It’s not widely popular as most of the podcasts you’ll are free of the subscription cost.

On-Demand podcasts are also a stream of income to the podcasters. Usually, subscription-based podcasts are only done by Big & famous podcasters,as their content is valued by its audience as premium.

For all these to work out, you must have a large enough audience base. So try to build a brand image by providing good content. Don’t just focus on money as if yet!

Someone rightly said, “ Don’t chase success, success will run after you if you do your work diligently & with smartness”.
