We all know that a podcast sponsor relationships can be beneficial for everyone involved, but they’re not required to be a successful or even a profitable podcaster.
Don’t get me wrong, podcasts are great if you want to earn a little extra income, but remember that it also requires a little extra work. If you put in the time to find quality sponsors, instead of just any sponsor, you’ll enjoy the rewards of satisfied listeners and put a little extra cash in your pocket. You don’t however, want to “pimp your podcast for a profit!”
There are several ways to make money with your show which includes asking for donations; creating a membership site; Patreon; selling merchandise, or work-for-hire on other podcasts and radio shows.
In this episode of the Delaware Blogger Podcast I talked about the 2 types of podcast ads which are Host Read and Radio Style. I have also explained the 3 types of ad placements which include Pre-Roll, Mid-Roll and Post-Roll placements.
I also talked about the importance of following up with sponsors, because in any business “The Fortune is in the Follow Up”!

Always remember that, “the fotune is in the followup” – so don’t be discouraged when reaching out to sponsors, as the worse they can say is, “no”, but wonder if they say, “YES!”
