Making a podcast now is easier than ever because of how popular they are, how simple the technology is to use, and how many opportunities there are for aspiring podcasters. Podcasts are being listened to by more people than ever before. The number of Americans who listen to a podcast every week has increased by 120% over the last four years, and 90 million of them do so each month, according to Edison Research. There has never been a better opportunity to launch a podcast for your company, brand, or personal interest as the podcast audience keeps expanding.

How much can you earn?
Your revenues will depend on how popular your podcast becomes because the industry average for podcast sponsorships is $18 per 1,000 listens for pre-roll sponsorships, $25 for mid-roll sponsorships, and $10 for post-roll sponsorships. Alternatively, you can use podcasting to earn money by promoting affiliate goods.
Since podcasting is so popular right now, you can find a lot of podcasting kits that come with everything you need (a microphone, headphones, etc.) and can cost anywhere from $100 to $1,000 (although you can definitely get the job done with cheaper kits!). While you could start doing it for free, if you’re serious about podcasting it’s worth getting some equipment to ensure the sound is up to par.
