Hey there! My husband and I run Lightheart Adventures, which is a small company where we provide weekly blogs about the tabletop RPG industry. He’s also a cartographer and dungeon designer. Our Patreon is set up with reward levels around downloading the maps he makes, and downloading pdf versions of these monthly posts he makes that are one-shot adventures for games like D&D.
I’m about to start a podcast as a subset of the business, and I can’t decide whether to create a separate Patreon for the podcast only, or whether to combine rewards with the current Patreon. I’m torn because our current supporters would enjoy the podcast and the benefits I could offer with it, but it feels like I’d just be giving more perks away “for free” if I add the ability to ask questions for the interviewees ahead of time, or things like that.
I feel like it would be a pretty big variety of content if we offer maps, adventures, and podcast perks all in one Patreon, but I don’t want to alienate our current fans by saying thanks for your support, but you’d have to join this other Patreon too if you want the podcast perks. Should I make podcast-only tiers? Should I suck it up and give the current patrons the podcast perks I’m thinking about? I’d love your thoughts!
