Why I created Patreon Secrets
"Video and blogging are my creative tools of passion and I love sharing travel tips with my audiences...
But relying solely on YouTube's Google Ad income and brand deals for my income was not enough. Much of that income relies on fluctuating traffic and volatile engagement.
Also, many creators who are working on the content creation treadmill 24 -7 are only eeking out pennies of passive income. In fact, many creators who have thousands of subscribers are cash poor, working for free doing trades and exchanges to get by.
This was me for a long time..
(and I'm in travel, which ain't cheap)!
Ironically, in a changing technological world, one thing which doesn't fluctuate much are your true fans and their dedication to helping you achieve your creator dreams.
Being on Patreon helped to boost my income and its earning consistency a lot, thanks to loyal patrons-- some of whom had been with me since the early stages of my YouTube channel. In fact, my Patreon income was always more stable than my fluctuating YouTube earnings.
My Patreon crew is also my biggest supporters and invisible assistance in some of my most crucial creative decisions. Their feedback and presence have helped make me a better creator.
Oh ho ho... I know what it’s like to:
Be afraid to ask for help
To not know how to justify the value of what I do as a creator
To suffer in helpless silence not knowing how to make money doing what I love !
