“Patreon is not a tip jar. It’s a subscription service for exclusive content.”
That was one of several big takeaways from my recent ComixLaunch interview on the state of the webcomics business model with Brad Guigar.
During our conversation, Brad talked frankly about how figuring out Patreon and more importantly figuring out what his patrons actually wanted from him, was a key to keeping his business sustainable in the face of changing market forces.
Like many of you, I love hearing great ideas.
I love the explosion of possibilities gaining new knowledge sets off in my mind.
But I also know that knowledge alone is not power.
In this information age, ideas are selling for far less than a dime a dozen.
And good ideas have an expiration date.
The longer you put off taking action on a good idea, the more likely it is that you’ll never take action on that idea.
For the past couple of years, one of the things I’ve been trying to embrace is speed of implementation.
Ready, fire, aim.
In the past, my approach to putting things into action looked more like:
Ready… ready… ready… aim… nope, not ready… ready… ready…
So, I took action on Brad’s strategy, and tried to see if I could apply it to my own creative business.
And what do you know… I got results.
Today, I want to present a simple strategy for growing your Patreon following in 30 days.
