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.
When you create your podcast on your own, you feel a sense of accomplishment. Even if it's not perfect, maybe a little rough around the edges... that sense of pride you feel is well-deserved.
When you share it with your friends, unless they are a bunch of dicks, they'll pat you on the back and tell you what a good job you did. Because they are friends. Many of whom haven't made their own show, so you're already better than them.
But members of the general public aren't your friends and will, oftentimes, be a little harsh. Not because they are a bunch of dicks (OK, some are), but because they are becoming more discerning in their tastes, and less forgiving of "quaint" mistakes your friends overlook.
In this short episode, I equate all of this to home improvement projects. Which works. I think?
