FROM THE DESK OF JEFF DOLAN

Channel dependence in a time of change

Spotify is asserting itself in the return of the content gatekeepers.

As YouTube and X, among others, have also done, the gate for content creators is getting harder and harder to open to unlock revenue.

Of course, as more people flock to fewer platforms, it becomes necessary to curate better content, but as an artist or creator, it means you have to work much harder to get on the radar at all.

And once creators have achieved a certain level of success, there is no guarantee that channel will continue to pay what you have come to believe is normal.

Not only are platforms changing their models left and right, but listener behaviors are changing as well.

This means, we must be careful how much we are depending upon certain channels or platforms for our revenue.

As soon as you grow your podcast, YouTube, or social channel into a profitable endeavor, it's key to begin asking what other streams of revenue you can setup.

This constant exercise will build more strength in your longevity as a content creator, and allow you to stay in the game to reap the benefits of all your work.

What is one step you can take today to move toward more independence from one revenue stream?

WAVVE DESIGN OF THE WEEK

Episode 171 y'all. Windowsill Chats with Margo Tantau is doing something right. And judging from her beautifully done Wavve designs, you can see why. She has a unique font title, a stunning photo, and a description that explains what the episode is about. Finish with a subtle waveform animation at the bottom, and you are all set. Great job!
