1. What is the TalkShoe Cash Program?

The TalkShoe Cash program exists to compensate the hosts of top shows on the TalkShoe network (see criteria below). With TalkShoe Cash, you can share in the ad revenues that TalkShoe generates from your show.

In addition, anyone who refers a host to TalkShoe earns a bonus of 25% of that host's total earnings for a period of one year from date of referral.

Even if you don’t qualify for the TalkShoe Cash program, you’ll meet new people and have fun Community Calling. Plus you’ll get a free Community Call page, free audio file hosting, free bandwidth, and much more. So get started Community Calling today!

2. How do I start working towards the TalkShoe Cash Program?

Start by creating an interesting and compelling Community Call. Actively promote your show to build your audience. In order to be considered for the TalkShoe Cash program:

• Your Community Call must be done on a regular basis.
• Your Community Call must average at least 20 live participants per week -- total callers plus TalkShoe Live! Pro listeners/chatters.
• Your Community Call must average at least 1,000 downloads per week. Smaller audiences are hard to sell to advertisers.
• You must be willing to work with selected advertisers to do live reads.


3. How do I apply for the TalkShoe Cash Program?

When your show meets the qualification criteria above, email the TalkShoe team to have your Community Call evaluated for the TalkShoe Cash program. We’ll review your show to assess whether it:

• Meets the entertainment and quality standards of the TalkShoe network,
• Will be of interest to audio advertisers, and
• Will be likely to grow its audience over time

If so, the TalkShoe team will invite you into the TalkShoe Cash Program.


4. Will I be eligible to join the program?

Anyone can apply if they wish to be considered for inclusion in the TalkShoe Cash Program. To get started, first read and accept our terms and conditions. Then click "Apply Now" and fill out the form. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at .

5. What does it cost to join?

The TalkShoe Cash Program is free to join.

6. How much will I earn?

Before we get into specifics, keep in mind that TalkShoe exists for the purpose of connecting people interactively. We pay the best rates for Community Calls that use the full capabilities of our service. After all, there are many ways to produce pre-recorded podcasts. But only with TalkShoe can you run a live show that truly involves the audience -- building loyalty and generating unique and interesting content.

To optimize your TalkShoe earnings:

• Focus on your audience, producing the best Community Call that you can for them; interesting, entertaining, and informative.
• Grow your audience size - both live and time-shifted (AKA downloads).
• Make sure that at least 1% of your listeners participate live.

When you first enter the TalkShoe Cash program you’ll get:

• A $50 starter bonus.
• A Featured listing on TalkShoe.com
• A top 10 listing in your category

After that, your earnings will depend on the total size of your live and time-shifted audience and the revenue TalkShoe generates from it. Advertisers are currently paying between $3 and $50 per 1,000 listeners, with $20 per 1,000 listeners being the most common rate (2 cents per listener). It is this revenue that you and TalkShoe will share.

7. How often do I get paid?

Payment is made by Check or PayPal on a monthly basis.

8. How will I know how much I've earned?

You can view your download and earnings statistics online. Go to your Community Call page(s) and click the “Stats” and “$” buttons to view your reports. These reports are continually updated.

9. How will TalkShoe know which referrals came from me?

When you sign up for the TalkShoe Cash program, your account name will be posted in our database for each referred Host. Your reports will list how much you’ve earned from those referrals. Note that referred hosts have the option of rejecting a referral if they do not know the person who referred them.

10. What happens if I earn less than $5 in a month?

If you earn less than $5 in a month, the amount will roll into the following month.

11. What are my responsibilities as a member of the TalkShoe Cash Program?
