Patreon Update: September 2017
Welcome to my Patreon Update for September 2017. This is the monthly report for my Patreon campaign and how it's performing, as well as my chance to thank everyone for their ongoing support. Let's get started with last month's earnings. Below you can see my transparency report regarding all the pledges that were received and processed for August.
August 2017 Earnings
Can it be? Yes, my month-to-month earnings are finally on the rise again! The transition into August was certainly a good one. As always, feel free to take a look at some of the numbers below:
- Pledged: $3,245.00
- Service Fees: $377.05
- Processed: $2,867.95
Revenue for content creation in general seems to dip during the summer months. This has been noticeably apparent for my Patreon campaign. While it has never been anything too alarming, it's still impossible to ignore — especially considering how much of an impact it has on my daily life.
Thankfully, things are taking an interesting turn. And this always seems to happen leading up to the holidays. For the first time in a few months, my earnings are once again on the rise. Transitioning into August didn't bring a huge increase in numbers, but it's an increase regardless. This could be a nice indication of my campaign's performance for the rest of 2017. I suppose we'll have to wait and see.
Unfortunately, however, I do have a bit of disappointing news to share. As of this month, I'm afraid I will have to cancel the monthly $25 Amazon gift card giveaway that I have been hosting for a while now. Patreon recently restructured their terms of service, which clearly states that hosting giveaways or raffles of any kind in relation to pledges is strictly prohibited.
If this news in any way affects your desire to pledge, I do apologize. Obviously I prefer to abide by Patreon's rules, but if you have any ideas that could possibly replace the monthly giveaway, please do not hesitate to contact me. My inbox is always open!
