9 Ways to Monetize a Podcast

Key Takeaways

  1. Creating a podcast helps us find our ideal customers and develop a relationship with them so they want to buy from us without being convinced to.
  2. We can create a membership site that has exclusive content for our customers that pay a monthly fee.
  3. We can sell information products or use them as lead magnets for our other products and services.
  4. We should only do affiliate programs with businesses we actually like.
