“Paid podcast subscriptions in Apple and Spotify…Great idea for Apple and Spotify and for all those big fancy podcasters with tens of thousands of downloads and also for the networks. Awesome. Cool. Indie podcasters… Just keep doing your thing and keep getting better and better at doing your thing.“~Andrea Klunder, Your Podcast Boss
You’ve already heard the breaking news from a month ago, right? Apple Podcasts and Spotify are offering paid podcast subscriptions on a per show or per network basis. So theoretically you can easily earn a few bucks off your listeners if they LOVE your show enough to pay for it, or pay for it ad-free, or pay for early access, or pay for bonus content. Is this something you need to be paying attention to and jumping in on? My thoughts… in this episode!
Also… Facebook getting into more “social audio experiences” a la Clubhouse? Twitter and LinkedIn too I guess.
My favorite platform for building your online community… Mighty Networks!
Facebook Groups are so 2020. Mighty Networks is a premium place to build your online community away from adbots. Check it out here.
And if you want to get a taste for the platform and connect with some creative folk who center the experience of women at the intersection of who we are and what we make, join The Creative Impostor Collective for free.
