Want to have a chance at making money off your podcast? FeedBurner is here to help!
Announcing the Podcasting Alliance: an advertising network for podcasters (audio and video) using FeedBurner to create their RSS feed.
FeedBurner allows certain feeds to put advertisements in their feeds and onto their blog pages. The idea behind the Networks at FeedBurner is that we go out and collect a bunch of like-minded feeds (in this case, Podcasts), and present them as an entire network. On the other side of the equation, Advertisers now have the opportunity to review the Network as a whole (your podcasts, my podcasts, everyone subscribed to this network), and decide whether or not to offer an ad campaign to every member of the network.
This means placing ads in your RSS feed and/or your Blog
Check the FAQ at the FeedBurner Support Forums for details. I’m not an employee. I’m just someone FeedBurner felt would make a good networker and hub person. The basic premise is this: advertisers don’t cut $20 checks. Instead, they look to find a way to aggregate their money across the most possible touchpoints in this new media space (blogs, podcasts, etc). This is a way to pay you for your hard work by sharing your audience’s eyeballs with advertisers.
This is not ads inserted into your podcasts or video work. Not yet. That’s a future possibility (which I think could be cool, if we can create the spots), but that’s not this. This is posting ads in your RSS and ads on your blog page, and being paid for your audience’s attention.
Share this with all the Podcasters You Know
This is non-exclusive. You can share this information with podcasters everywhere (who use FeedBurner to burn their feed).
There’s a Badge you post on your site. It looks like this:
**Update: I couldn’t get the badge to work.**
And there’s a Network Feed here:
