So yeah, I don’t want to say how, but I came across this book Michael and Leesa talked about on their blogs, titled Podcasting For Fun and Profit. I don’t want to link to it because, you know, it’s a trashy ebook that tells me I can make $13,000 in 67 minutes.
I’m sure you can find it if you really want to.
Anyway, it’s the usual ebook– filled with sales pitches for other ebooks, obvious advice, etc. etc. The majority of it is really just basic “about podcasting” stuff anyone could learn by searching Google (which is likely what he did). Then, on page 64 come the eight pages of groundbreaking monetization tips:
– Advertise stuff
– Advertise your stuff
– Advertise other people’s stuff
– Make people pay for podcasts (!)
You get the point. Don’t even ask me why I’m blogging this… if you’ve been to any podcast conferences recently, it isn’t news to you that people are trying to sell us useless stuff. 🙂
