Taught by: Colin Gray
CEO of The Podcast Host
Colin is the founder of The Podcast Host and has been writing, podcasting & broadcasting, and teaching others how, for over 10 years.
Podcasting has many benefits and perks for those who do it well, and over a long term basis.
Earning money is one of those potential benefits. Some podcasters are able to recoup and cover things like hosting costs, and even have some change left over for a drink at the weekend.
There's even a very small minority of podcasters who've created good enough content that it's become their full time job!
If you've been consistently podcasting for around a year or more, then you might've arrived at the stage where it'll be possible to monetise your show in some shape or form.
Alternatively, if you're new to this, or have only recently started, you might just be interested in how podcast monetisation works. There's nothing wrong with planning ahead.
Whatever stage you're at, this course will walk you through the various avenues available to you when it comes to podcast monetisation.
From sponsorship and advertising, to product creation and affiliate marketing – you'll find it all in How to Make Money with Your Podcast.

What Our Customers Are Saying
Don't just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
“My experience with ThePodCastHost made my podcast launch possible. I overcame a lot of my fears early on. I highly recommend The PodCast Host to anyone. I owe The PodCast Host a tremendous debt of gratitude.”
The Digital Wealth Digest Podcast
“I only have great things to say about The Podcast Host. Not only in the quality of their production work, but also with their knowledge and insights around technology, equipment & advice in podcasting.”
Director, The Property Voice
“Colin is the man when it comes to helping you launch a podcast or improving your podcasting skills. The online courses were invaluable and his advice along the way superb.”
Financial Advisor, The Voyantist
“As someone who literally had no idea how to go about starting a podcast I am so glad I found Colin! If I hadn’t signed up for the Producer Package then I know I would have become completely overwhelmed and would never have managed to bring my podcasting plans to fruition. I’m going to be honest and say that I worried about the monthly cost but I can safely say that it is indeed money well spent. The time I have saved trying to learn to do all of the things that Colin took off my hands has been spent creating good content and building my platform. Colin and the team have a great system going. Everything is streamlined and easy and [the team are] there as a mentor throughout. If you want to concentrate on creating great content for your show, hire the Podcast Host to worry about everything else!”
Julie Christie Photography
Despite my 30 years of experience in programme-making, Colin and his team’s insight into what makes a podcast compelling is invaluable. I would strongly advise any first-time podcaster to bring The Podcast Host on board as your podcast coach, partner and safety net. Both he and Matthew were calm, reassuring and had endless patience whenever I stumbled and got me back up and running quickly, with even more knowledge as a bonus. I honestly wouldn’t make a podcast without them and I’d strongly suggest, neither should you!
CEO, Broadstance Media
Colin and his team have been a massive help in setting up our series of podcasts. My colleagues and I went into the world of podcasting knowing nothing. However with Colin’s support, it turned a really legal podcast into something fresh and exciting. The Podcast Host was instrumental in assisting us, from a theme tune to giving us useful content to use in our podcasts. We have turned from Podcast Plebs into to Podcast Prim-donnas! We would recommend The Podcast Host to anyone.
