We often talk about how difficult it seems to be these days to chew gum and do digital at the same time in the radio industry.
But for those willing to give up money-losing and futile attempts at a digital strategy such as streaming, podcasting and selling banner ads, there is something much more lucrative.
Making short-form videos in your area of interest and/or expertise – even within your broadcast station’s brand.
I’ve discovered how entrepreneurs are making millions – I’m wrong, multi-millions – without even the expertise that most professional broadcasters have.
We can do this if we will take a moment to learn the new rules.
It is being done right now – not by mega media companies like Comcast or Disney – but by entrepreneurs like us.
And it’s being done without selling any banner ads.
And, no video pre-rolls that turn viewers off.
In fact, no ads need to be sold at all to make millions of dollars.
That’s right let me say it again, no ads at all.
This ingenious approach now being successfully used outside of radio and television makes big money without even charging fees or subscription prices.
It’s going to be a big deal and we need to get there first.
