Is this course for crowdfunding platforms besides Patreon?
Yes, it can be used for all crowdfunding platforms. While Andrew does go through Patreon features, many of the lessons can also be applied to other crowdfunding sources (i.e. Learning how to determine what types of benefits your fans are looking for; How to keep fans happy over the longterm; How to deal with merchandise shipments to fans)
I don't know if I'm ready for a Patreon. Should I still buy this course?
This course is designed for creators who have an established following of any size on the internet. An "established following" means that you have fans who are returning to your work on a recurring basis. If your fans enjoy what you do and keep coming back for more, Patreon should be able to work for you, and I can help you make sure it's a success. Early in the course I help you determine how many fans you can expect to convert to Patrons so that there are no surprises come launch time.
My Patreon is already live but I need help taking it to the next level. Will this course help me with that?
Yes! In fact, most if not all of the chapters in this course will be very helpful for you. Building the Patreon is only one part of this course. I go through the entire process, including how to shake up and grow your Patreon as it ages, as well as how to figure out what your fans want to pay for.
Will you work with me 1 on 1?
One version of this course includes a live, 1-hour Zoom session with me to answer any questions you may have about the course, or if you'd like additional guidance building and launching your Patreon.
If you purchase the standard version of the course without the live session, I am happy to answer some questions over e-mail.
At this time I am not selling live consultations without the course purchase. I have packed this course with information (partly developed through years of live consultations) and built it with a professional course designer to ensure it is effective.
Does this course include supplementary materials?
Yes! The course includes worksheets, a couple quizzes, visual examples, screen shares, and you'll receive a certification of competition. If you prefer or need written content, Closed Captioning is available for each lesson, and full transcripts are provided.
Are you employed by Patreon?
No, I am just an online creator who uses Patreon for my own online work and has had tons of success using it. You could definitely consider me a Patreon fanboy. In addition, I have met with Patreon team members on numerous occasions to learn more about the platform. In 2021 I was also invited by Patreon to be a part of their Ambassador Program, in which I'm invited to meet with Patreon's team and fellow creators to discuss tips, tricks, and best practices.
