American comedian and martial arts commentator Joe Rogan's podcast 'The Joe Rogan Experience' earned $30 million & generated 190 million downloads pcm in 2019.
If you needed any more proof that Podcasting (audio & voice) is the next form of media to explode, Spotify has spent $500 million acquiring podcast companies (and they say they’re actively looking to spend another $500 million!).
Probably the most common question I get asked is “Am I too late to the party to start a podcast?” My answer: 100% NO. Yes, the window of opportunity is closing. But if you don’t start your podcast during this lockdown - then honest truth, you were never going to start a podcast were you?
January 2019: 500,000 podcasts. January 2020: 850,000. Good news? 1 BILLION+ active Youtube Users. Million+ active blogs. The window is clearly closing. Opportunities exist for individuals to become media companies. But you’ve got to START. I started my Podcast, “Screw It, Just Do It” in 2017 & it changed my life. 3 years later my podcast‘s listened to in 140+countries, & generated 6 figures. Join me for my live webinar. It’s free & you‘ll discover how to start, scale & monetise your podcast.
