“How do you make money?”
That is the number one question someone asks us (and the same one we asked ourselves at the start) when we tell them we are bloggers, influencers, and podcasters.
We’re a triple threat but the industry term for folks like us is: content creators.
And the answer to that question is just like with any other type of business, in all sorts of ways, really.
Here are some ways we monetize as content creators.
Sponsored Podcast Episodes
Over the past seven years, our brand has evolved and our business and platform have grown beautifully.
Just last October, we pivoted with the creation of our podcast/radio show Cozy Conversations with The Sister Project and our listeners are loving it!
We love creating it as well. We can feel in our hearts that this is what we were meant to do.
In the past several months our cozy little chats have been downloaded over 30,000 times. 30,000!!!
But with growth, comes a lot more responsibility and a bit of pressure, to be honest. More content needs to be made and that requires even more time.
Creating content such as blogs, podcast episodes, and social media takes hours.
It takes an actual full day’s work to produce just one episode of Cozy Conversations. Within an 8 hours process lies brainstorming, research, writing, recording, and editing. Along with all of the social media creation to promote each episode.
Once all of that is done we finally get to press publish and off into your ears our cozy podcast goes.
Our little virtual business might not look like the mom-and-pop cafe in town or the local clothing boutique.
We are a little more mixed media, a little less brick and mortar.
The homepage of our blog is our storefront and we love when people come for a visit.
Our service is creating nuggets of cozy + mindful + well-being for you to use in your own life through our blog, podcast, newsletters, and social media.
Like many content creators who take to platforms like Patreon and Anchor.com to provide subscription options for their community, we are finally doing the same. And we are so excited!
If our content has you feeling extra cozy and a little supportive, perhaps show us some love and please become a supporter over at Anchor, our hosting platform which also supports the hard work of their creators by offering an option to subscribe.
Honestly, why wouldn’t we offer this amazing amenity by Anchor?
They created it for a reason and we are so dazzled by their initiative to support creators on their platform.
Your generous contribution helps us keep our pod equipment and software running smoothly, makes more room (aka time) for us to create even more life-enriching content just for you, and lastly, supports every minute we put into The Sister Project blog and Cozy Conversations podcast.
Our content is always free to listen to, read, and use. This is just a new avenue of revenue we are proud to open up for our die-hard supporters.
If you subscribe to our small business, we thank you so much. If you continue to enjoy our content sans subscription, we thank you so very much as well.
Our mission is, and always will be, to enrich your life via cozy + mindful + well-being. We look forward to creating so much more content for you!
We are grateful for all of your support and we love ya!
