Multiple income streams. That’s the dao of a musician! And Patreon is one of those.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, “Patreon is a way to get paid for creating the things you’re already creating (webcomics, videos, songs, whatevs). Fans pay a few bucks per month OR per post you release, and then you get paid every month, or every time you release something new.”
“But what could I offer as a musician? My music is already out there.”
In reality, lots of stuff.
Wednesday 13 of Murderdolls and Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13 is a good example. He’s offering 7 levels of patronage to his fans and for those you get a lot of stuff, for example:
“See Live Story + Q&A sessions communicating with fellow Necrophazers via Instagram-weekly hour long Live story Every Wednesday on the Necrophazerz1313 page.”
“Here I will be discussing all of the Forbidden and Unknown topics that you’ve probably never heard of. Secrets of the universe, the occult, aliens, conspiracies and more: 🦻🏻Hear it from my point👁 of VIEW through all of my research”
There is a lot! Just check out his page.
At the moment he has 407 patrons.
The dude is having a lot of fun and do his fans.
If you’re fresh to Patreon, it takes time to figure out what you want to offer that’s valuable for your fans. If you don’t know at the moment and want to go the easier route, just send me a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will help you out.
