New podcasting app Anchor has introduced a new product called Listener Support which gives podcasters an opportunity to generate revenue. The question is: Will listeners pay for a show they love to listen to?
Anchor creators can now activate Listener Support from their dashboard at anchor.fm (on desktop and mobile browsers). A Listener Support button is then added to the podcaster’s public Anchor profile along with a link in their show notes on every app or website that podcast is available. Any time a listener clicks through the links, they’ll be presented with the option to sign up to make recurring, automatic monthly payments to support their favorite podcast. There are three support tiers: $0.99, $4.99, or $9.99. Then they enter payment info, and their charge is immediately processed by Stripe.
