Gumball is the premier marketplace to easily and efficiently buy host-read podcast ads.
Gumball provides a transparent and modern buying platform, connecting great podcasts with the best advertisers. Gumball takes away all the logistical headaches for podcasters and advertisers alike by managing inventory schedules, providing easy and consistent ad script instructions, easy aircheck uploading, and ensuring payments are made in a timely fashion. Best of all, Gumball takes pride in offering the most podcaster-friendly terms as a standard, meaning more money directly flowing to the podcaster as it should be!
If your show is pulling down more than 10,000 downloads per episode, you owe it to yourself to talk to Gumball at Gumball.fm to see how they can help you make even more money with your podcast. That’s Gumball.fm. And tell ‘em Evo sent you.
If you think you're 100% in control of your podcast; you're fooling yourself. Not unlike other digital products, every podcast is reliant on a complex chain of services -- some free, some not -- that each represent a potential fail point.
In this short episode, I run down 10 I though up in just a couple of minutes, including:
- Hosting companies (yes, even if you roll your own)
- Tracking services
- Website hosts (yes, even if you host your own)
- Computer hardware
- Marketing services
- Social media
- Saas (Skype, etc.)
- Governmental regulations
- Podcasting apps and directories
Any one of those going south could cause major problems for your podcast. Perhaps even prohibiting some (or all) of your audience to consume your content.
Are you prepared for when the inevitable happens?
