I saw a video on youtube today and the guy who’s channel it was said at the end that he had a ‘patron of the month’. I thought this might be a good idea! BUT then I wondered a) how does one choose a patron of the month and b) what qualifies someone? Do they have to be paying a certain amount or should it be just any paying patron?
Earlier this year I did a pledge drive which was very successful and I want to maybe do another but don’t want to do yet another enamel pin. Any artists here got any ideas of what to do for something like that that isn’t a pin? Would love to throw some ideas around with you guys.
Currently I have physical rewards (originals and prints and enamel pins till they run out), but also video rewards, 5 and up get time lapses but 10 and up get full video with me showing how i’ve painted a piece. I’ve also just hit a goal which was 850 and now that i’ve reached that I will be doing live hangouts Q&A with everyone once a month. First month will be for all patrons but going forward it will be 10 and up.
I probably have enough, but i’m just always trying to think of ways to encourage more folks to join and making it more interesting. I’m now living off my patreon income so I dedicate all my time to it.
Anyway, I’d be interested to know what you guys think!
