Set Up a Patreon Page.
People love to be in exclusive clubs. Remember when you were a kid, and had a little group of friends who did everything together? You were your version of The Goonies or Stranger Things, replete with a treehouse fort in the neighborhood.
This is similar to what Patreon can do for your most loyal fans.
One huge benefit to Patreon is that you can create “exclusive” stuff–like shirts, mugs, stickers, behind-the-scenes content, private calls to fans, and much more! You set up ‘tiers’ and offer different ‘perks’ for each tier. Just know that if a patron cancels their membership, all of their access is gone at that moment, so you need to consider it when using this strategy.
For creators-Patreon gives you the tools to confidently reach, engage, and get paid by your most valuable fans — with and beyond membership — no matter where you are on your journey. You fully own your direct relationship with your fans, and we build the tools to help you grow over time. It’s free to start on Patreon, and you can add paid membership and commerce tools whenever expanding your business feels right for you.
You can learn more about becoming a creator on Patreon by visiting patreon.com
For members-Patreon is a way to join and engage with your favorite creator’s community. No algorithms or doom scrolling here — you’ll have a dedicated place to get content from the creators you know and love. If creators offer paid membership or sell digital products, you can pay them directly for exclusive content, knowing you’re supporting them to create more of the work you love.
For customers-Patreon lets creators sell digital products directly to you, their most valuable fans. You can shop, buy, and consume digital products in one space.
Blair Braverman is on Patreon and doing it right with more than 2200 patrons! That is very impressive. Just know that it is a lot of work and effort to build up a robust community like Blair and Otter Run Kennel in Minnesota, but it can be done.
