If you have something to say, say it! Podcasting allows you to not only say what's on your mind or provide insights into your industry; it also allows you to help people. Although it may not seem like it, podcasting is a great way to collect passive income as you grow your viewer base and bring on sponsors for your shows.

Becoming a pro-podcaster may require some start-up money, but there are ways to start up quickly without dropping a fortune.


Podcaster VBOs record, manage, edit, and transmit podcasts to listeners all over the world. Although they're typically audio only, there has been an uptick in video-based podcasts, or "vodcasts". Podcasts tend to have an interview segment, so research and interviewing skills are necessary for this role. To do it right, VBOs looking to get into podcasting should expect to spend at least a bit of money on equipment like microphones, recorders, audio editing software, and of course, a computer.

While it may not seem like a lucrative business on its face, many podcasters have found success monetizing their podcasts by offering sponsorships from other businesses. The podcast trend is huge right now and is expected to continue growing over the next several years.

Here are just a few reasons you should consider becoming a Podcaster VBO:

  • It's a growing industry and people are always looking for new podcasts to follow.
  • It's a great way to start earning passive income using sponsorships.
  • You can share your expertise and knowledge with a large audience.

The typical business model for a podcast is similar to that of a blogger. Since it is not typical for bloggers or podcasters to charge for their content, they often make their money from promoting their own solutions or those of a company that has a relevant offering. Getting started, it is often easiest to create affiliate relationships to monetize your podcast audience. As the audience grows along with your knowledge, you may want to consider creating your own solutions. Examples of this might be online courses, ebooks, templates, or supporting SaaS products.
