Hi everyone! I just took the workshop Patreon offered on Six Weeks to Success and I’m four days into my first-ever Special Offer. I set a modest goal of gaining 8 to 10 new Patrons at my $5 tier–roughly 10% growth for me on Patron count–and I just hit that total last night.
My Patreon’s one-year birthday has just passed so I’m pretty new to all this, but I’m really happy with how my Special Offer is doing and now hoping I might hit 15-20% Patron growth in my remaining week and a half. I’d definitely like to run another one of these in the future!
My question is, for those of you who run Special Offers, what’s the sweet spot? Every six months? Every four months? Or is one a year really the best idea?
What my paradigm is… I’m currently a part time creator still carrying a “real job” but about to move across the country to join my significant other, so I’ll soon be giving freelancing a shot full-time to see if it works for me (Patreon and commission work). I currently promote on my company’s Twitch stream (three times a week, and this will continue after I move) and Facebook. My New Year’s resolution for my Patreon is to start a mailing list and get more consistent on my Instagram, and to create more short free content for my YouTube that might get me access to a slightly different audience.
Thanks for any suggestions or experience you can share!
