    Growing a Massive Listener Base Without Paid Ads: Evans Putman's Podcasting Success Story

    Growing a Massive Listener Base Without Paid Ads: Evans Putman's Podcasting Success Story

    In this edition, we're diving into the episode featuring Evans Putman, who managed to attract an astonishing 4.5 million listeners without relying on paid ads. Let's uncover the key takeaways from Evans' journey and how you can apply them to your own podcasting endeavors.
    Evans Putman shared his experience in building a thriving community group coaching program. He took time to identify his audience and what they needed. He came up with a program that included free tools for his audience, an affiliate program for promoters, and a community of future customers for Evans. It was called the success toolbox with over 200 items, which guests contributed to, creating a win-win situation for everyone involved. Everything was working great.
    So he left...
    Now, with more time on his hands, he's launched two new resources for podcasters.
    One of the fascinating insights from Evans' story is his focus on building a collaborative community rather than solely on content. He discovered that by providing valuable content and serving his audience, he was able to attract a loyal following.
    What's remarkable is that the relationship built through the toolbox and podcast resulted in people approaching Evans with their credit cards ready to buy. By offering valuable free content, Evans nurtured a relationship of trust and credibility with his listeners, leading to meaningful conversions.
    Evans also shared his strategy for leveraging platforms like LinkedIn and Medium to expand his reach. By breaking down show notes from his podcast episodes and creating compelling headlines, he was able to drive traffic to his content. He strategically included curiosity-driven paragraphs or sentences at the top of his posts, encouraging listeners to click on the embedded podcast player below the written content.
    The mental shift that launched it all is when Evan went from Selling to Serving. He was wearing a servepreneur shirt when I interviewed him. We both believe that you don't benefit until your audience benefits.
    Remember, your podcast has the potential to not only amplify your message but also generate revenue and build a strong community of listeners. Stay tuned for more valuable content in our upcoming newsletters.

    Flight-testing your course: The importance of proof of concept

    Flight-testing your course: The importance of proof of concept

    Years ago there was a course builder called Member Vault that had a fully functional free plan that enabled you to sell your course. This was a great way to get proof of concept. Once you had people buying your course/community, you could then upgrade to a higher plan (which you could afford). Unfortunately, they turned off their free version.
    Recently I discovered Fresh Learn, which has a fully functional free plan. If you need to upgrade, it's only $39/month ($29 if you go for a year). If you need to "No Brainer" version, it's only $69 a month ($49 if you go with a year). It's very impressive, and while other sites like Teachable are raising their fees, the two systems I'm talking about today have zero fees.
    Fresh Learn has no fees on any plan, and neither does New Zenler. New Zenler is $67/month and is similar to Kajabi. While Fresh Learn also has marketing tools (email lists), New Zenler (being around longer) appears to have a few more. Fresh Learn has 20/7 live chat which is nice.
    As a customer of New Zenler I can say that their service is like nothing I have ever experienced. They are constantly doing live sessions where you can connect and work with others as well as demos, open Q&A sessions and more. Their email support was helpful and quick.
    Part of this was kicked off by hearing that Teachable is raising their fees (not a ton, but meanwhile, these two options don't have ANY fees)
    The point of this episode was to show that if you want proof of concept without paying for a course tool, then Fresh Learn may be something you need to check out.

    Exploring Alternative Ways to Monetize Your Podcast Besides Advertising

    Exploring Alternative Ways to Monetize Your Podcast Besides Advertising

    On this episode of Profit From Your Podcast, Dave Jackson delves into the topic of monetizing podcasts beyond just sponsorships. Guest Michelle Jackson shares how she started the project Podcasters Getting Paid to address the reluctance of podcasters to spend money on learning how to monetize their shows. Michelle predicts that the industry will change in the next year or two as more people become frustrated with not seeing results.
    Michelle offers her insights on matching the right product with the right audience and creating supplementary content.
    The episode offers valuable advice for podcasters looking to monetize their shows in creative and profitable ways.
    Check out the book Profit From Your Podcast: Proven Strategies to Turn Listeners into a Livelihood
    Volley Is Going Out Of BusinessBack on episode 55, I interviewed Josh Little. Josh made a GREAT Product and had a GREAT staff. In my opinion, they had too much "good stuff" in the free version of their app. Consequently, people didn't upgrade. This was my favorite tool for asynchronous coaching.
    I've replaced it with Zip Messenger
    In This Episode[00:05:24] Podcasters are reluctant to monetize and spend money to learn, still preferring free resources; this will likely change in a few years.
    [00:07:40] Not ready to monetize without $10 investment; started free due to lack of money; quit job and went into digital work; needed to make money to sustain and keep projects going.
    [00:10:26] People have unrealistic expectations of what it takes to be successful in the online space. It takes learning and adapting, understanding your audience, and purposeful content.
    [00:14:26] Writing ebooks for passive income, make money with courses and affiliates.
    [00:16:50] Making money through partnerships and events related to women and money.
    [00:19:08] Negotiating deals, showing the brand's ecosystem, not needing to give downloads, and raising rates when necessary.
    [00:21:16] Creating supplemental content for show to monetize without disrupting flow.
    [00:23:39] Monetize work without sponsors: think, don't force answer.

    Can You Make $500 Quickly With A Brand New Podcast?

    Can You Make $500 Quickly With A Brand New Podcast?

    Podcasting has become a popular way to make money and share your voice with the world. It's no secret that many people have used podcasting as a way to monetize their content and make a living. But creating a successful podcast takes time and dedication, making it difficult for those just starting out to see success quickly. In this article, we will explore if you can realistically make $500 in your first month of podcasting with the right strategies and techniques for monetization.
    There are always exceptions to the rule. I've interviewed people who had such a niche show that they had a sponsor before they released an episode. So yes, it is possible, but for many people with an "Inspiration Podcast with Inspirational People with Inspirational Stories" it may be quite a bit harder.
    New podcasters often ask if they can make $500 in their first monthIt depends on various factors such as existing audience size, celebrity status, and podcasting talent.To examine the question from a logical point of view, consider the example of "Bill," a new podcaster with no audience and no product or service to sell.Podcast hosting companies report median download numbers of around 158 per episode after 45 days, and the average is around 1,520.If a podcast is only getting less than 10 downloads per episode, there is likely something wrong with the show.Some companies claim that new podcasters can make money from day one, but the reality is that earnings will likely be very low. Sure it is "better than a poke in the eye" but still a long LONG way off from the $500/month goal. In my travels and conversations, in order to make a significant amount of money from podcasting, most podcasters have multiple streams of income and have been podcasting for a while. (3 Years seems to be a common answer to "how long does it take?).It is also essential to have a clear plan for monetization, as simply hoping to make money from advertising may not be a reliable strategy.

Great info to monetize your podcast

Dave Jackson has tried pretty much everything when it comes to podcasting! His advice is from time tested mistakes, experiences and trials.

Get his book, I’m using it to monetize my podcast.

Professional

David Jackson is approaching this idea in the utmost professional way. I myself am amazed that people still take the potential of the podcast medium for granted. I have operated a podcast that has made money so this topic is near and dear to me. David's content is spot on. Good info and good sound. Well done.

Kern of Home Recording Weekly ,

Dave be the man

What ever Dave says, it is pleasant, and worth our time. Thanks Dave, for all of the help. Please, do not stop!
