Twelve. That’s right… episode 12 of Profitcast and I get to chat with Darrell Darnell from Golden Spiral Media about sponsorship strategies (LOTS of them by the way), the power of loyalty, how we can impact our community, and our value as podcasters regardless of what we’re podcasting about!
Darrell also recently released his incredible video Audacity Mastery – ALL about learning and mastering Audacity so you can take your podcast’s audio quality and production to the next level. It’s a PHENOMENAL video. USE PROMO CODE “PROFIT” FOR 10% OFF!
Additionally, I talk about a few things in the beginning, including some audio tools I recommend, 4 KEY elements you need in order to profit with your podcast, a GREAT suggestion from our community – Sarah, and 2 lessons learned from getting hit by a car while riding my bike.
