Hi! I'm Stacey.
In 2015, I launched my award-winning podcast, Diabetes Connections, to educate and inspire audiences about type 1 diabetes. The show crossed 1,000,000 downloads in 2020 and it's been the most rewarding project of my career.
I brought in partners and sponsors beginning in 2016 and now make a living from the show.
Word got out, and as I attended podcasting conferences and hung out in Facebook groups, I found myself answering advertising questions and giving lots of advice. Eventually, I spoke about monetization at conferences such at She Podcasts Live, PodFest Masterclass, The Charlotte Podcast Festival and HealtheVoices Live.
Now, for the first time, I'm sharing my strategies with everyone! It'll take hard work, but you can do this. Let's get started!
What will you learn?
This course is for everyone who wants to learn about selling ads within a podcast.
I’m going to take you through the steps of learning what you’re really selling (it’s not your show) and how to gather the information your potential sponsors will need.
We’ll go through how to price your podcast ads and create sales packages with appeal.
You’ll also learn how to create an effective pitch to send to potential sponsors and an in-depth follow-up proposal once they’re interested.
I’m going to share everything I’ve learned in 5 years of selling ads in my show. I believe that you can sell your podcast without selling your soul, so we’ll talk about ethics as well.
This course will not cover making money directly from your listeners such as with Patreon, memberships or merchandise.
What You Get:
Two hours of video walking you through every step of the process at your own pace.
Helpful downloads and PDFs including a sample audience survey, examples of sales proposals & a legal document you can use for sponsorship contracts!
After this course, you’ll have:
An audience survey
Your rate cards and ad packages
Your podcast pitch & proposal
Knowledge of where to find potential sponsors
