Podcast Profit Interview with Emmy Winner Bofta Yimam

Podcast Profit with Bofta Yimam and Super Joe Pardo

I had the honor of being interviewed by Emmy and Murrow winner Bofta Yimam on how to get podcast profit. You can watch the video above that was originally part of her Facebook group Speak and Infuence. I’ve been podcasting for 5 years now and running the Mid-Atlantic Podcast Conference for almost as long. Crafting lots of products, courses, videos, books, coaching lots of podcasters and business owners from all over the world has been a ton of fun. As I point out early on in this interview it isn’t always easy to find your target audience for what you have inside of you. Starting with a topic that you love and can talk about for days on end can sometimes be difficult.

At the end of the day if you are looking for podcast profit it starts with a topic and putting in the reps to get good. From there you can start to build your audience and let them help guide you where you can best serve them with deals and promotions from potential sponsors, swag, products, digital products and more! I want you to keep in mind at all times though that the show is yours and you ultimately get to make the final decisions that make you happiest.
