Patreon Update: March 2015

Welcome to my Patreon Update for March 2015. This is my monthly report of how my Patreon campaign is performing, as well as my chance to thank everyone for their ongoing support.

As always, let's get started with last month's earnings. Below you can see my transparency report regarding all the pledges that were received and processed for February.

February 2015 Earnings

The start of the new year was certainly a little slow, but things quickly began to pick up once I introduced the perk of accessing exclusive vlogs only available to patrons. This alone saw a sharp increase in not only pledges, but also the number of patrons.

Below are my detailed earnings for February 2015:

  • Pledged: $1,692 by 273 patrons
  • Processed: $1,647 by 265 patrons
  • Deductions: $101.71 credit card fees, $82.35 Patreon fee
  • Final Paid: $1,462.94

Updates

Since launching my Patreon campaign last summer, introducing exclusive vlogs has been the killer feature that everyone seems to be enjoying the most. The transition from January into February is proof of that. I have already picked up well over 100 new patrons during the past two months alone, and I could not be more thankful.

Feedback on my patrons-only vlogs has been incredible. I am always reading your comments and paying close attention to what is being said on social media, particularly Twitter and Facebook. A common question that I've been receiving is whether new patrons will be able to watch older vlogs. The answer to that question? Absolutely!

As a matter of fact, it's my goal to make this more apparent to those who are interested in becoming patrons. I plan to achieve this by making a page that is solely dedicated to displaying the patrons-only vlogs, and nothing else. This will not only help keep exclusive content organized, but it could also be a nice way of persuading others to join the club.

It's also worth mentioning that I have once again surpassed my Patreon milestone of $1,500 per month. And you know what? It looks like I could remain above this milestone for quite some time. Numbers are strong, so it looks like my weekly Twitch streams are not going anywhere any time soon.

Hm, what else to say? As always, I am just so grateful for everything that has been happening lately. Launching a Patreon campaign in the beginning was certainly a risk, but things clearly turned out for the best. My community is the strongest it's ever been. Thank you.
