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 600,000 podcasts sounds like a big number, imagine what number you get when you look at individual episodes of podcasts? Millions, to be sure.
While that's an arguably large number, it's not big in the world of datasets. Take the data set of "everything on the internet" (of which podcasts are a small but significant portion) where a variety of AI and well-trained humans work behind the scenes to flag content across the good-bad spectrum.
I look to the future on this episode, looking at a world where podcast content - episodes, artwork, and copy - are evaluated in a similar light, using Google's Search Quality Evaluator Guidelines as my guide.
Spoiler: if you're a business podcaster, you've got it easy. Unless you did some silly things. But you've time to fix it.
