We probably don’t have to tell you, but podcasts are quickly replacing radio programs. Think about it: when’s the last time you tuned into a station knowing you’d hear an interview or guest you actually wanted to hear? Odds are, your love of podcasts’ specificity and uniqueness piqued your interest and lit your fire to start a podcast of your own. Now that it’s moving, you’ve got to consider ways to monetize your podcast. Our t-shirt printing agency can help.
Monetizing your podcast
No matter how original, awesome, or out there your podcast is, it’s hard to keep it moving without money coming in. Like any other venture, making sure you have the funds to pay your team (even if it’s just you and one more team member), cover any overheard, do marketing and promo, and any of the other financial considerations is a huge deal—and it’s often one of the hardest hurdles to clear.
Most podcasts rely on advertising revenue or sponsorships to help cover costs. While this is a proven and useful method, it’s not always immediately available to podcasters, especially podcasts that haven’t had the time to develop a loyal following. Bluntly, if you don’t have enough listeners, companies probably won’t want to sponsor you just yet. The good news is that our t-shirt printing agency can help you get revenue coming in.
One of the best parts of podcasts is the community that they create. Think about it: many podcasts are basically their own clubs, where listeners congregate to hear the host and the unique guests that they bring on. It’s that delicate, original guest-host interplay that distinguishes them from the rest. And listeners want to show their support and that they’re a part of the club.
Merch is the easiest way for podcasts to get their brand out there. If you’ve got a killer design and your listeners love the look, odds are that they’re willing to pay to wear it. It’s not dissimilar from other brands, whether people want to support musicians, coffee shops, clothing companies, or a niche community of creators. Printing t-shirts is a proven way to get the word about your podcast out—and income coming in.

Make your t-shirts pop with DTG printing
If you’ve got a killer design, it’s got to be printed in a way that keeps it looking amazing no matter what it’s printed on. DTG (direct-to-garment) printing gives you tons of options for colors and high-quality prints, ensuring that your design pops off the shirt.
DTG printing uses water-based textile inks to deliver an awesome print each time. This ink requires a bit more time to cure, but that’s what gives it its unique look. DTG works great on virtually all of our garments and gives you the unique merch you need to tempt listeners into buying your killer designs so you can monetize your podcast.
