In this generation, the way we express ourselves can be turned into very legit, and very successful, businesses. Now more than ever, our peers are more inclined to support our efforts and help us reach our goals. Patreon is the perfect platform to do just that. Here’s the rundown…
What is Patreon and How Can the Music Community Use it?
What is Patreon?
Patreon is a membership based platform that offers creators like you a simple and effective way to earn money for creating the same awesome content you already make! With it, you can earn monthly, steady income directly from your personal community of dedicated supporters.
The platform was designed by a musician by the name of Jack Conte who saw a major need for an inclusive network that allowed creative people to build real, sustainable relationships with their communities and yet also gave them the security of a reliable income.
And thus, Patreon was born.
How does it work?
Your fans pay a few bucks per month OR per post you release. Then, you get paid every month or every time you release something new. It’s really that easy.
