Patreon Update: January 2018

Welcome to my first Patreon Update for 2018! This is the monthly report for my Patreon campaign and how it's been 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 December.

December 2017 Earnings

Closing out 2017, December overall was a solid month. Below are some detailed earnings:

  • Pledged: $3,716.00
  • Service Fees: $452.69
  • Processed: $3,263.31

Pledge amounts shown for the current month are not final.



Starting things off, I am excited to share my Patreon campaign's financial report for 2017. According to an email I received from Patreon this week, the following are my gross earnings and net earnings:

2017 Gross Earnings: $36,481.91
Refunds: $46.10

2017 Net Earnings: $36,435.81

As you can see, the significantly low amount of refunds is incredible. That's a sure sign of how well my Patreon campaign has been performing. It's also a nice indication to remind me that the exclusive content I continue to provide is keeping patrons feeling pleased with their monthly pledges. And for that, I am forever grateful.

So, what does 2018 hold in store?

Of course, the exclusive vlogs will remain on track, as will the monthly Google Hangouts. The patrons-only Discord server that I introduced in late 2017 will continue to do its thing. And finally, early access to specific videos of mine is not going anywhere.

With all the above in mind, I can't help but wonder — what else would you like to see? My Patreon campaign is very important to me, which is why it's always a top priority of mine. But sometimes I feel like it's missing something. If there are any additional perks that you would like to see introduced throughout 2018, please do not hesitate to comment below.
