Patreon Campaign Update

You may recall my email of January 10, announcing the launch of a Patreon campaign for The Worldly Marketer Podcast. It was my first attempt to make the podcast financially sustainable, and I decided to try a crowdfunding model. After about a week, however, the campaign was showing no signs of gaining momentum. In fact, I received some helpful feedback that made me completely reconsider the crowdfunding approach. I've since taken down my Patreon page, and I'm now actively pursuing other options instead.

I'd like to thank everyone who has contacted me to express their support and ongoing interest in the podcast. If you'd like to help me in a very small but practical way, please take a moment to give the podcast a rating and/or review on iTunes, and please consider subscribing. (It's free!) It makes a huge difference to the show's ranking and visibility online. And the more downloads the podcast gets, the easier it will be for me to attract and secure some sponsors.

Thank you!
