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!”

Great info. I think some promote podcasting as a way to leave your day job and get rich quick which is so untrue. Thank you for your open and honest discussion.
Yes, if you are in it for the money only – it will be disappointing to say the least!
