On the “get off my internet lawn” episode of the podcast, Josh Spector, Jordan Cooper, and Chelcie Rice welcome Patrick Melton of Nobody Likes Onions on the show to discuss his nearly nine years experience running one of the most successful and long-running comedy podcasts, the very early “wild west” days of podcasting pre-iTunes, why the first-mover advantage is so imperative before market saturation and how mainstream media personalities entering the industry completely changes the game for everyone.
Also, Patrick describes some of his creative monetization methods, why attracting long-term fans is more important than short-term money from potential sponsors, how social media is more about giving value rather than self-promotion, and customizing your content to suit the specific platform natively.
In addition, we ultimately encourage comedians (hopefully) on the importance of having some semblance of a plan, pride in what you produce, a consistent and infallible work ethic and not being afraid of trying anything.
