Patreon Update: March 2018

Welcome to my Patreon Update for March 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 February.

February 2018 Earnings

The transition into 2018 seems to be slightly on the rough side, but numbers still remain strong and consistent in staying above the $2,500 mark. Check out the breakdown:

  • Pledged: $3,188.00
  • Service Fees: $387.30
  • Processed: $2,800.70

Pledge amounts shown for the current month are not final.



While numbers may seem lower than usual, it's important to remember this change is perfectly normal. If anything, my Patreon earnings are returning to how they usually are. Sure, an increase month over month would be amazing — but that sort of thing doesn't magically happen by itself. It requires a bit of classic cause and effect. So, what can I do to bump my campaign's performance a bit? I have an idea, and I've actually been considering implementing this for a while now.

How does a patrons-focused Ask Me Anything series sound? Rather than briefly answering a collection of questions in one video, I'm thinking of focusing on one question per video. That question would be submitted by a patron and answered publicly on my YouTube channel. Going this route would not only give me additional ideas for new content to explore, but it would also allow me to focus on details and go more in-depth with how I choose to present myself.

If the above idea is something you are interested in, please let me know by leaving a comment below. The more interest I can generate with this, the better chance I have of actually moving forward with it.

This new perk would be accessible by all $5+ patrons. If your question is selected to be featured in a video, you will be given the opportunity to mention any link of your choice. Win-win, right? Let me know what you think!

$25+ Pledge Promotions

Every month I promote websites and/or services ran by those who are kind enough to pledge within the $25+ tier. Please take a moment to review anything below that you may find interesting:

And another Patreon Update comes to a close... But that doesn't mean the content stops. Stay tuned for yet another patrons-only vlog this Friday. I have some exciting things in the works, and I can't wait to share the details.

Stay awesome!
