5 Design Podcast Success Stories [2022]
Start A Design Podcast

Here are some real life success stories of starting a design podcast:

1. The Board Game Design Lab ($120K/year)

Gabe Barrett (from Acworth) started The Board Game Design Lab almost 6 years ago.

$10K / month
1 founders / 1 employees

Case Study

What’s up my friends. My name is Gabe Barrett, and I’m the creator of the Board Game Design Lab, a podcast and community that helps you design great games people love.

Including all the revenue generated by sponsorships, ads, books, and games, I average around $10,000 per month in revenue. And while that number pales in comparison to some of the awe-inspiring incomes you see on this site, I think it’s important to realize that you can make a full-time living in even the tiniest of niches if you really lean into your target audience and provide them with what they want and find helpful. My community only consists of around 8,000 people currently, but that’s more than enough to generate enough income to support my family of 5.


2. Awesome Pros ($120K/year)

Brian Kearny and Pete Mockaitis (from Bloomington, IN, USA) started Awesome Pros over 2 years ago.

$10K / month
2 founders / 5 employees

Case Study
  • Together with Brian Kearney, Pete Mockaitis founded Awesome Pros, a specialized drop-servicing business that now generates $10k in recurring income each month.
  • Pete and Brian aspired to create a company that provided the top virtual assistants for people looking to build and publish their own podcasts.
  • The founders help their clients with audio editing, transcript & show notes, and as well as promoting the podcasts. They want their client to focus on delivering the message while they take care of the rest.
  • The strategies Pete and Brian used to expand their clientele can help you determine your niche and pricing. They took their company from an in-house solution to a $10k/mo business.
