No, advertising and sponsorships are not the only way to make money with your podcast. Here are 3 ways that are more accessible to more podcasters to generate an income, even if you're just starting out, and even if you don't have your own products to sell to your audience.
Remember, however, you must show up and build trust. Without consistently showing up, it's hard to earn the trust you'll need to make any money at all. None of this will help you get rich quick, but indeed many of these strategies do work and have helped a lot of people, including myself, increase earnings.
