It’s seems like a lot of my patrons were new to Patreon when they started supporting me. (Their profile shows when they joined Patreon and it was often the same month they started supporting me and - at the time - I was their only creator).
Here’s a look at my 93 patrons…
35 joined Patreon to support me (38%)
5 of those currently now support more than just me (this speaks to the potential benefit of improvements in cross-creator discoverability).
Of my 93 patrons…
41 support just me
14 support 2 creators
9 support 3 creators
6 support 4 creators
4 support 5 creators
5 support 6 creators
1 supports 8 creators
2 support 9 creators
1 supports 10 creators
1 supports 12 creators
1 supports 14 creators
1 supports 18 creators
And 7 are fellow creators. (Of which I support one - so we’re both just giving Patreon and the CC processor 10 cents a month).
I’d be very interested in Patreon-wide stats like these. How many patrons support just one creator? How do stats vary based on the type of creator (podcasts vs webcomics vs cosplayers, etc) (all ages vs NSFW)?
Patreon may have business reasons not to publicly share this data but perhaps if other creators share stats here, we might be able to learn from each other.
