At this point in our humble Brazilian jiu-jitsu internet radio show’s history, the income we earn from on-site banners and the occasional paid audio commercial is still probably less than I pay annually for hosting, travel, and other services used to make The FightWorks Podcast. When you add in the hours required every week to put together a show, it doesn’t come close to justifying itself, much less being a revenue generator.
And that is fine. The emails and messages I get from you, The Mighty 600,000, prove to me that what I do is valued. It really feels good to produce something that makes others happy. So it’s a true statement that the emails and voicemails we receive from you are the fuel that powers The FightWorks Podcast.
Don’t get me wrong. No part of what I wrote above is me asking for donations, and I am not soliciting ideas on a new business model for podcasting. (Although if you really think you’re on to a new idea, feel free to email me). What I am saying is that your feedback is really important to us here at The FightWorks Podcast, so please keep in touch!
