4. Promote a sponsor within your podcast
Alex mention that Leo Laporte does a good job of this. He has some deal with Audible and promotes a book every week. “I have seen presentations where people behind Grape Radio and Endurance Radio talked about selling sponsorships for decent amounts of money. To execute this, find someone who would really benefit from some exposure and sell them on how great it would be to promote them to your audience”.
5. Run ads on your webpage and use your podcast to drive traffic
He suggest Adsense , Yahoo Publisher, Chitka, Adbrite and Adengage and suggest not to run Adsense on the same page as something similar because it’s against Googlerules. Another options are banners you can run like ValueClick and ClickHype.
6. Sell your own product
If you sell other non-podcasts products, use your podcast to sell your product. You can sell ebooks or your own ebook using Clickbank. To sell your own T-shirts, cups, pens etc. use CafePress
7. Sell professional services
If you do not make a product , you can sell your time.
