Well now that we know some interesting tidbits about podcasts, lets get down to the real reason why you are here. Podcoin.
Podcoin is an app in which you listen to podcasts and earn points (or coins) in which you collect and redeem them for gift cards, items, or donate to charity. It helps people find new podcasts and helps podcasters reach new listeners.
You can earn things like Amazon gift cards, Starbucks gift cards, Uber gift cards, Bose headphones, and even an Echo Spot. If you are a generous person, you can even donate your podcoins to helpful causes such as books for the poor, or ending child abuse.
You earn your Podcoins in 1 of 2 ways. By either being a listener or a podcast creator. Since most people who are reading this will most likely be listeners, I will go over that first.
How it works:
- Listen to a podcast! That’s it. For every 10 minutes of listening you receive 1 Podcoin. There is a max of earning 6 hours a day.
- Listen daily! The longer your daily streak is the more coins you will get!
- Listen to bonus podcasts! These podcasts give you more podcoins per 10 mins than normal podcasts! You will not gain podcoins for podcasts you have already listened to.
- You earn 1 podcoin for every 10 minutes someone listens to your podcast. Thats all!
How much can I make?
Podcoin won’t be making you millions any time soon. It’s not a get rich quick scheme. But if you listen to podcasts already, why not slowly make some giftcards on the side while doing so? There is no catch! You just listen to podcasts like you would from anywhere else. You just make some slow passive income while you do it!
Where can I get it!
Head over to the google play store and download Podcoin. If you enter my referral invite code: Kassq60a and you start off with 150 podcoins! Instead of just the basic starting amount!
