- Affiliate Marketing for Podcasters ($$$)
Hey, DFW podcasters! We're ending 2019 with a bang! Brian Little is going to talk about affiliate marketing and how podcasters can use it to make money. If you're a little unclear about what affiliate marketing is - Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people's (or company's) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make. (NeilPatel.com) Affiliate marketing allows you to sell physical products without spending any money on inventory. You can also sell digital products - such as online courses - that someone else has already created. Affiliate marketing can be a great fit for lots of podcasters. Brian Little is: A US Navy Veteran Lubbock Christian University Graduate 6th and 7th Grade Social Studies Teacher in Waxahachie Hobby-based Podcaster Active Affiliate for many small, mid-sized, and large companies Agenda: 6:30 Networking and free pizza (courtesy of Improving) 7:00 Introductions 7:05 Presentation See you there!
- UPDATE: Email marketing for podcasters
ATTENTION: Making a quick change for our November Meetup. We're going to introduce email marketing concepts for podcasters. Originally, we were going to have Chris Lang speak but we've decided to wait a little while for that. We need to cover some basic email marketing first. Do you want to grow your podcast? --- An email newsletter can help you do that. Do you want to monetize or make more money with your podcast? --- An email newsletter might be exactly what you need to do that. According to optinmonster.com, email marketing is a highly effective digital marketing strategy of sending emails to prospects and customers. Effective marketing emails convert prospects into customers and turn one-time buyers into loyal, raving fans. This goes for podcasters, too! And I'll bet you aren't using email marketing to promote your podcast and market to your listeners. It's time to change that! Let the email marketing for podcasts journey begin! * * * * * * * * * Don't forget, free pizza (courtesy of Improving)! See you there!
