How to build a profitable podcast.
Let us welcome our guest writer Justin Osborne!
Listening to podcasts is one of the best ways to learn as much as you can about a certain topic, and the advantage of it is that you can also do other tasks or chores while listening to them.
These past few years have made it incredibly easy for almost everyone to be able to become a digital nomad and work remotely from almost everywhere. If you are interested in this topic, one of the best ways to keep yourself up to date and informed about the world of digital nomads is by listening to podcasts.
There are plenty of related ones that you can listen to, and here are some of them:
This podcast tackles various topics, including interviews about eCommerce, Amazon, Kindle, etc., as well as talks with all sorts of marketing experts.
They host weekly interviews about traveling and keeping online businesses as digital nomads, and the best ways to reach a point in which you start generating passive income. They have over 250 episodes available, in which you will find lots of useful information, including how you can find your way to traveling forever and working remotely all the time.
The next podcast, called Next Level Remote, includes more tips and tricks on how to master the best remote work techniques. You can listen to it if you are looking for ways to improve your daily remote work routine.
Moreover, you will find lots of advice on how to become more productive in your day-to-day life, how to remain healthy and fit and how to focus on yourself.
In her podcast, Denise tackles a wide variety of subjects, and besides the ones strictly related to remote working and how to boost your productivity while doing it, she also takes on topics such as the relationship between you and other remote workers, how to find good co-working spaces, etc.
Nomadtopia Radio is one of the podcasts in which guests are invited each month, and they are asked to share their nomad-living stories, tips, and tricks.
In this podcast, various people are invited, and you will hear stories about how to safely travel with kids, how homeschooling can be handled by digital nomads, etc., as well as how to become a solo backpacker. So the topics are very different from one to another, but the beauty of it all is that the guests come from all around the world.
Going Remote is a podcast owned by Nomad Charles, and he loves to invite and interview lots of other successful digital nomads to his podcast. They talk about how they got there, what they do for a living, and so on. This is a great one to listen to if you need a little bit of motivation, or you find yourself stuck in the “I could never find a job that I can do remotely” mindset.
Truth is, even if you’re not qualified for a specific job that can be done from anywhere (like web development, for example), you will still be able to find a way to make a decent income, while still being able to travel abroad as much as you’d like.
A very easy way to do that is to find a writing job, for example. You can start collaborating with an essay writing service, and this way you will be able to write papers and essays as a job, which can 100% be done fully remotely. Working for services like bestessays.com will not only help you achieve your life-long dream of becoming a digital nomad yourself, but it will also bring you the peace and satisfaction that you are helping others reach their goals.
Another great podcast to listen to in order to get more informed about specific things like flights, prices, destinations, etc. is Abroaders. Held by AJ and Erik, the podcast is very informative and it tackles all sorts of topics of interest for aspiring digital nomads.
With over 200 episodes out, the podcast will provide quality information about specific challenges you might find while traveling, airlines with the best offers, and other such subjects.
Just like its name suggests, Ditching 9 to 5 is a popular podcast, well known for its main topic of interest – helping people escape from their regular 9 to 5 jobs that only bring most of the misery, and learning how to grow and break free from a traditional job.
The podcast is held by Dan and Ben, and they love to invite guests and interview them, asking them to share their stories and leave some advice for the ones who haven’t yet managed to quit their jobs and follow their dreams.
They put a lot of accent of how you should always follow your heart and do what you love, instead of settling for a regular job that will make you feel stuck. Some of their episodes are focused on how you can get over different fears of being unsuccessful, how you can figure out what your priorities in life are, etc.
Besides these issues, they also tackle different strategies, starting from SEO ones, for people that are trying to build an online business, to other types of strategies that can be used throughout your day-to-day life.
This one is a bit different from the other ones, and that is because The Suitcase Entrepreneur focuses more on starting a business part of becoming a digital nomad.
Natalie is very keen on giving relevant financial advice, trying to help people understand how they can start a successful online business that will give you both financial independence, as well as the possibility to work remotely from anywhere in the world.
The podcast has been nominated for a few awards, and it dedicates itself to showing you how to create freedom and adventure in your life.
This one is focused on advice on how you can keep your biggest dreams on top of your priority list at all times. Marc and Trisha Leach have conversations about your dreams and what to do to make them happen, as well as how you treat the obstacles that tend to get in the way.
Besides that, they also advise people on how to become full-time travelers, with over one hundred episodes of them interviewing people that have made it and have turned their dreams into reality.
Marc and Trisha own an RV, and this is another topic they love to talk about – traveling in a mobile home, tips, and tricks, and everything that is involved along the process. One of their episodes is even called “Less house and more living”, and it is really inspiring for those that are looking for some motivation to get up and start traveling.
The Zero to Travel podcast is the best one for you if you’re looking for a podcast that talks about everything from becoming a digital nomad, to which nomadic jobs are out there, etc. With over 15 years of travel behind, the host shares his knowledge about traveling, working, and business.
This one is great for beginners that want to know where they can start this amazing journey. Their website contains numerous resources alongside the podcast episodes so that you can use it as a full guide whenever you decide to take upon this challenge.
The podcast contains useful information about finances and how to deal with them while trying to become a digital nomad, as well, and, here as well, you will find lots of business-related information and advice.
The last podcast from our list is called The Tim Ferriss Show, and you might have seen it here and there, as it is oftentimes situated as the number one podcast of Apple Podcasts.
The podcast has reached the threshold of 600 million downloads and has been awarded multiple times. There is quite an impressive guest list on this one. Amongst the ones that have joined and talked in the podcast, you can count Hugh Jackman, Jerry Seinfeld, Lebron James, Kevin Hart, and many others.
However, this one doesn’t tackle only information about travelling and becoming a digital nomad, as it is much more than that. The “Travel” category does, indeed, contain plenty of episodes, and the amount of knowledge transmitted is incredible. The best part is that, aside from the great life advice you get from this podcast, you also get to hear the incredible and successful people that are interviewed, which will bring you a lot of different perspectives on life.
Tim Ferriss has travelled a lot and decided to share all of his knowledge with the world, but most importantly all the lessons learned along the way. Some of the topics include travelling the world for free, travelling over 20 countries while also building an online business, as well as how you can travel to exotic and expensive places on a really tight budget.
