I’ve had the chance to chat with some of you, but for the ones who don’t know me, my name is Matt St. John — I write a bunch of the articles on the Patreon blog.
Mindy and I were talking in the office the other day, and she told me about something that she hears about in the community a lot. She referred to it as, “the Dip,” which sounds more like a monster in Stranger Things than a creator finance issue.
For those who aren’t familiar with “the Dip,” it refers to the time at the beginning of the month when creators get their payout from Patreon. While payout is exciting, it’s also super nerve-racking for many.
I’d like to write about this on the Patreon blog (and for the community to be a part of that process). So I have two questions for you about “the dip,” which is otherwise known as first of the month drop off.
- What info would you like to see in a blog about this?
- What have you found useful in dealing with “the dip.” The advice can be about how you manage your emotions around the first of the month, or it can be business tips — up to you!
Thanks, and looking forward to your responses!
