E2: Why Do Podcasters Hate Money – Monetize a Podcast

E2: Monetize a Podcast - Stop hating money

We pose a question: Why do podcasters seem to hate money and not focus on how to monetize a podcast? Your hard work should reward you. We explain how.


Many podcasters and pundits lament the lack of money in podcasting. Some give the excuse of saying it is simply the nature of the beast. Other’s further belay their fear by telling you to focus on podcasting for the love of podcasting.

We say this is total crap, plain and simple!

When you monetize a podcast you incentivize yourself to keep doing the hard work. And you’re able to pay for needed equipment, marketing, and other things that can grow your audience and make the show better.

But when a podcaster doesn’t figure out how to monetize a podcast, they eventually left feeling like the only person paying for a big dinner over and over.

Making money isn’t evil or bad. And it doesn’t mean you have to be a “sell-out” or “Salesy”. It just means podcasters need to provide value to their audience and receive value in return.

We discuss overcoming the problem and how to monetize a podcast in detail in this episode…
