Today you will hear how just changing the angle of your pitch can result in a much better result. Instead of complaining about how expensive it is to be in business, simply point you how you have delivered value, and if your audience would like, they can give back at an easy-to-remember link.
Maintain Control and Future Proof Your Monetization
On my Ask the Podcast Coach show, I use a link www.askthepodcastcoach..com/awesome where I control where that link goes. For now, it goes to a page on the website where people can buy my book, leave a Paypal donation, or become a patron of the show.
If you leave a specific link (www.patreon.com/davejackson) what happens if later something better comes along? You have a bunch of episodes with an outdated link.
I create that link with a built-in tool from Podpage. If you're on WordPress you can use the pretty links plugin.
