Discover Podcast Monetization Insights from Podfest 2022

Podcasting continues to be a rapidly growing platform to establish authority, share a message and attract great clients. Even with 2.8 million active podcasts, monetization continues to be a pervasive challenge for podcast hosts worldwide.

In May 2022, I attended and spoke at one of the biggest podcasting events, Podfest Expo, and gained some valuable insights into what’s working (and how to leverage this fast growth.) With over 1,000 people registered, and 50 tracks dedicated to everything from mental health to sex to monetization and podcast growth, you can rest assured that there is an audience for any topic you might be an expert in.

On episode 287 of Amplify Your Success Podcast, I’m dishing my top four insights from the event as well as three secrets to increasing your ROI when attending huge industry events like Podfest (there were well over 1000 people registered to attend.)
