How to Grow Your Patreon Page, Part 1: Pledge-for-Pledge

Posted on April 16, 2015 at 8:15 AM

Patron to Patron community support

 

I had been on Patreon for nine months with only three patrons (my mother, my sister, and a friend from college). Then I discovered a way to begin to grow my patronage and build relationships with other artists, musicians, and creators at the same time.

 


The concept is simple: Search for other people on Patreon who have a small patron count (in other words, most of them) and who are doing cool stuff that you like. Contact them via Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube and offer to do a pledge-for-pledge exchange.

 


Watch the video for my insights into this process. I am definitely getting encouraging results, and learning a lot about Patreon and other creators along the way. I went from 3 to 16 patrons in two weeks, and I met my first milestone goal, which was to reach $25 per creation.

Patreon is a web platform that allows musicians, artists, and other creative people to receive monetary support from patrons on an item-by-item basis rather than having one large fundraising goal. I look forward to sharing more insights on building a Patreon page as time goes on.
