The Surprising Truth about Earning a Profit from Your Content


There are four stages to creating a remarkable content experience.

And so far on The Lede, hosts Jerod Morris and Demian Farnworth explored three out of the four: authenticity, usefulness, and reliability. Today, they discuss the fourth: profitability.

But this is not only about figuring out how to make a living from your content. Which is important, mind you. Because you can love what you are doing and not mind spending hours a day creating content … but eventually you have to make a profit.

You could sell ads or subscriptions, but the preferred method is selling digital products like ebooks, audio training courses, and membership sites.

However, there’s another type of profitability you can’t ignore.

In this 21-minute episode of The Lede, you’ll discover what breed of profitability they’re talking about, plus:

  • What James Altucher really thinks about blogs
  • The method Buffer used to get visibility (fast)
  • What sci-fi writer and journalist Cory Doctrow thinks is your real problem (and it’s not money)
  • How Jeff Goins built a business without resorting to ads or a subscription model
  • Why your audience needs you to successfully monetize your site
