Making Money From Podcasting
On the Earning Freedom network, I strive to show others how they can achieve their highest potential. One pledge that I’ve always made is that I would never ask anyone to do anything that I’m not willing to do. And I’m willing to work hard, to invest of myself to achieve the goals that I aspire to achieve. The same strategies that empowered me through 26 years in prison and resulted in my returning to society strong, with my dignity intact, will guide me to reaching the goals I’m setting for the Earning Freedom Podcast. By the end of this year, I intend to begin making money from podcasting.
I will not reach my goal by accident. So I will adhere to a values-based, disciplined strategy that I use to teach others. That strategy begins with an assessment of where I am, and concludes with a target of where I want to go. I must define success!
I launched the podcast on March 23. That day brought me 107 downloads. 17 days have passed since I launched. During that time, we’ve reached some milestones. Yesterday the show hit a peak of 290 downloads. I’d like to reach a wider audience, so I’ve decided to embark upon the same type of values-based, goal-oriented approach that guided me through other challenges. I’m going to use the Straight-A Guide to reach my objective.
On today’s podcast I defined success, one of my values, by indicating that I intended to build a bigger audience.
The goal I set was to increase my audience size to reach an average of 400 daily downloads within the next 30 days.
I am making a 100% commitment to this goal, which reflects that I have the right attitude. Although I cannot control how many people will download the show, I can invest myself fully into a strategy that will result in my success.
I aspire to build an audience that results in more than 10,000 people tuning in to the Earning Freedom podcast each day. Yet I know that I must take incremental steps. For now, I focus on finding a sufficient audience that will download 400 episodes a day.
In order to reach my goal, I must take incremental action steps. I pledge to follow the following schedule:
- Publish new podcast each day.
- Write blog for each podcast each day.
- Publish to social media each day.
- Publish two media articles each month.
- Release newsletters around the 1st, the 10th, and the 20th of each month.
By stating my actions, I invite the world to hold me accountable. I know exactly what steps I must take because I’ve defined my action plan. Either I succeed executing my plan, or I fail.
This disciplined strategy makes me more aware of my responsibilities and gives me a reason to work harder. Simultaneously, by executing this daily plan, I trust that more influential leaders will want to work with me to spread this message.
I will celebrate my achievement every day by watching my numbers rise, or taking action when they do not.
Those in the Earning Freedom Audience will listen to the gratitude I express for this opportunity and privilege to live as a contributing citizen.
If I succeed in reaching my goals, I’m convinced that by the end of this year, the Earning Freedom podcast will provide for my family and me going forward.
