What if I tell you that you can be an artist, podcaster, blogger, writer, or creative doing whatever you love full-time and get properly paid for it?
Or even better, have a community of raving fans that pays you each month to continue creating?
Enter subscription-based crowdfunding. This model of funding is driven by Patreon, a platform that has helped creators just like you monetize their creations and move their businesses forward.
The concept is quite simple: creators get subscribers called patrons who pay a fee for exclusive content, perks, and rewards. Yeah, it’s like what the ancients did (heard of patronage?) but with a modern twist.
Many people are actually already using this to tap into the power of their community and turn their passion into profit.
But what are the benefits of Patreon over other crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or WeFunder, what are the drawbacks, and why should it be on your radar?
In today’s solo episode of the Crowdfunding Demystified podcast, Salvador Briggman delves into precisely these questions and more!
He also reveals a new tool that you can use to make the platform work for you and your creative growth.
If you are a creative person looking for alternative ways to fuel your creative expansion, this episode is a must.
Hope you enjoy it!
