Get ready for another After Work Session ! ⚡️⚡️⚡️
Once a month, The Venue Berlin hosts an After Work Session where a group of experts from the music and audio tech scene gathers to discuss current topics. Join us on July 25 for "The Future of Podcast Monetization".
Although having your own podcast is very time consuming, podcasts are currently flooding the German market but hardly anyone can even compensate the costs for the production. America’s podcasting scene is a few years ahead of us, having big production companies and an approximate revenue of 314m USD in 2017 from advertising which is estimated to more than double until 2020. The estimate advertising revenue for the German market in 2018 was 700,000€. The podcasting industry does not seem to be on the radar of big companies’ digital marketing mix yet. What possiblities do have German podcasters to monetize their podcasts and how do they become relevant for the advertising market?
