  • If you’re considering advertising revenue, consider the idea of selling “Title Sponsorships” 
    • You can bundle the episodes as an annual or half-year package
    • The advertiser would get… 
      • an ad spot
      • a “brought to you by…” mention in each episode intro
      • their logo on the cover art
      • links on the website and the episode descriptions
      • Instagram posts, etc
    • For podcasts getting 1000 downloads per episode, you can sell a title sponsorship for $1800 for 40 episodes (1 year).
  • Episode titles are very important. 
    • A potential listener needs to be able to scan across your episodes, and get a clear idea of what they’ll expect listening to your show.
    • Great episode titles are like great ad copy…so take time to be intentional about them
  • Custom episode artwork might be a waste of time.
