Douglas answers questions from students in Janet Wilcox’s online Voiceover class at UCLA Extension.
What are the ways to make podcasts profitable? Oooo, that’s a big one. Actually, after 10 years of podcasting it’s actually starting to get some better methods of actually making money from your podcast. That said, when I started podcasting back in 2004 – I was one of the first 20 podcasters once that term was coined – I have never looked at podcasting as a way of making money itself. I’m not an entertainment industry person. I don’t see myself producing a show. I used my podcasting to support everything else that I do. For example, I podcasted the career column I wrote for many, many years, because it brought people to my blog. It brought people to my consulting services. it brought people to my books, so on and so forth.
