Podcast Tips and Ideas
How to Monetize a Podcast
How Do Podcasts Make Money?
A branded podcast can help you reach new potential customers and maintain a loyal following of current customers — both of which lead to increased business and revenue.
You can also choose to incorporate ads into your podcast. Many podcasts make money by having sponsors which are promoted during the show. The more listeners you have, the more you'll earn from these sponsorships.
Rates for sponsorship can be up to $50 CPM (cost per thousand listeners) or more. That means if your podcast episode has 50,000 listeners, you can make $2,500 in sponsorship revenue from that particular episode.
Sponsors typically pay more for mid-roll ads, which appear in the middle of the episode, than pre- or post-roll ads (those at the beginning or end of the episode).
Choosing a podcast niche is important because it can help you stand out against competitors.
For instance, a podcast specifically about guitar pedals may be more successful than a podcast about guitars in general.
Once you've found your podcast niche, consider the following ideas for a podcast episode:
Discussions With Industry Experts
Q&As About a Specific Topic Within Your Niche
Reactions to New Products or Trends
Success Stories from Industry Leaders
Tips for Newcomers to Your Niche
Some podcasts are very conversational (bloopers included!) while others are highly edited to remove mistakes or sounds like breaths during recording.
Whichever style or topic reflects your brand, Kloss Creatives can make your podcast a reality.
