SPI 188: Patreon: A Potential Alternative for Generating an Income Online

Here with me today are two experts on Patreon, founder Jack Conte and Tom Merritt, a podcaster who has had huge success funding his shows through Patreon. Patreon allows creators to receive recurring payments directly from their fans. It mimics the old-school model of patronage, where patrons of the arts personally funded the careers of their favorite artists. It’s a platform that has brought big change to the lives of musicians (like Jack), podcasters (like Tom), visual artists, writers, game developers, and other creators who might otherwise struggle with monetization.

If you’re on the hunt for a different approach to funding your project, listen to Jack and Tom’s stories. They’ll explain how they use Patreon, how it has helped them connect with their fans, and how it can change your business in radical ways.
