There are people on my discord server who sprint with me regularly asking me to cover this topic for a while now. If it wasn't for them, I would probably never think to do this topic so you can thank Rosella0214 for this.
Patreons to credit: -This could be you. Join now.-
As someone who studied Business Management and Accountancy with some working experience in finance, I must say that the money I spent on that degree wasn't completely in vain.
This post is not a sure-fire secret cultivation guide to grow your patrons overnight. Instead, it's a carefully put together mish-mash of things that I've experimented with before to know how it works. In other words, this is Aitsuji-sama's formula for creating a writer's Patreon that you can reference by clicking on the button below.
Without further ado, let's look at the models below.
#1: BTS Content
This BTS isn't Bangtan Boys. It's actually behind the scenes. Sorry to disappoint.
For writers, this can mean a lot of things. All the messy handwritten plot drafts? Yes, your readers might want to see them. Those character profile folders that you made because you were procrastinating on editing a mammoth chapter? It can do too!
Better still, if you can draw your own characters like JKSManga, this can go into the BTS Content that only the Patreon fans can have access to.
#2: Advanced Content
This has got to be the most straightforward way of creating a Patreon brand. In one of my previous blogs, I talked about Webnovel and the Privilege system.
The Patreon's advanced chapter release method popularised by RinoZ author of [Chrysalis] is something that works well if you have a very large and hungry audience. You could visit his page to reference his pricing system whiel you think of fanciful tier names for your patreons.
#3: Paying Fans Exclusive Content
This is by far the most effective method when you have a simp army. You can sell anything from hoodies and cups to making uncensored smut chapters for paying fans. They'd feel extra special and you could ring a pretty dime or two at the end of every month if you charge on a subscription Patreon model which I highly suggest you do.
Again, this kind of business model only works when you're being regular about your updates. It's like building social media fame. Your fans will forget about you or unsubscribe when you stop reminding them about how fab you are.
My recommendation? Post at least twice a month if you cannot do so weekly. It's not very difficult if you can fart a thousand words within an hour. You certainly can fart more than a thousand words for fans that actually give you money and will enjoy the smell as they do.
That's all for this post, I hope it enlightened some people. If you've ascended into the realm of paid writer even by $1, let me know in the comments! I'll be cheering you on from the bottom of my imaginary simp army stampede!
