Making Money from Podcasting

We know podcasting is popular with Gen X and Baby Boomers and it is growing at a pace that must be noted.

Advertisers have been slow to monetize and then there is the question of whether podcasting is actually cannibalizing spoken word radio listening.

To make the subject more intriguing, the number one podcast on the iTunes store is the audio of a radio show (Fresh Air with Terry Gross on NPR).

Sounds like a perfect subject for my upcoming 2017 lab setting at the Advanced Radio Management Conference especially in a radio industry that could use the revenue boost IF podcasting is accretive and not destructive to its stations.

Amplifi Media’s Steven Goldstein, a longtime radio programmer, has developed considerable chops in the podcasting arena because of his dual skill sets.

Perfect, a radio person who is leading the way on podcasting.

So you won’t be getting pie-in-the-sky lectures from Steve who is preparing a video presentation just for our conference.  The goal is to discuss the growing merits of podcasting, brainstorm and leave with a game plan that fulfills our promise to show the way to make money from podcasting.

If you’ve never been to one of my learning labs, you’ll love the relaxed format, two-way conversation, brainstorming and atmosphere of approval and acceptance to new ideas.

Here’s the program.

I hope you will consider reserving a seat.
