What is Patreon, and is it for you?

Create Support at Patreon.

Patreon is a website dedicated to creating a platform of support for creators. Musicians, illustrators, streaming superstars and many other types of artists use Patreon to leverage their fanbase into an income. In the turmoil that is the year 2021, having an alternative funding source to traditional employment or the grind of surviving from the sale of your art could be a literal life saver.

Patreon allows a monthly (or per creation) payment from your fans supporters, to help you continue your work. In exchange they receive rewards in a series of tiers, allowing you, the creator, the opportunity to offer a widely appealing reward for many, such as early access to your work, or exclusive content, and higher tiers can offer this plus more, such as physical copies of prints, signed presses of your latest vinyl album, and so on. A popular method of reward is the inclusion of some or all of the Patreons names at the end of Youtube videos… perfect if that’s your medium.
