Interview with Melinda Wittstock
Jess and Margy are the co owners of Interview Connections, the first and leading podcast booking agency. This is the podcast where you will learn all about podcast guesting and how to leverage podcast interviews to grow your brand awareness.
On today’s episode of Rock the Podcast, Jess and Margy speak with serial entrepreneur and accomplished podcaster Melinda Wittstock. Melinda hosts the popular show “Wings of Inspired Business,” and is the creator of Podopolo™, a new and exciting podcasting network. Podopolo™ is all about empowering content creators to profit from their podcasts, and engaging their audiences to make a positive difference in the world – all while having fun, connecting with friends, and winning prizes.
You’ll hear about how Melinda started her entrepreneurial journey as a child, resulting in her grandmother prophetically referring to her as “disruptive.” Melinda talks to Jess and Margy about creating the first ever socially interactive and gamified podcasting network, and the three main problems that Podopolo™ aims to solve for podcasters.
The question on everyone’s mind is, “How can I monetize podcasting?” Melinda explains that while 85% of podcasters don’t make any money from podcasting, Podopolo™ helps smaller shows with a niche and hyper-engaged audience start to see revenue from podcasting. You’ll also hear what Melinda has done on her own podcast to create mini-businesses and streams of revenue. Listen to the end to hear Melinda give Jess and Margy her two big predictions for the future of podcasting!
You can find Podopolo™ in your app store or on the Podopolo™ website!
