The thing is, we’re not done yet. That’s why we started Apple World Today. We pride ourselves on providing our readers with well-written, well-sourced news and information, as well as detailed reviews of apps and accessories.
We want to keep doing it with a site that’s all our own. A fresh start with the concise reliability you knew at the other sites, plus new features and ideas we weren’t able to put into action before. We’re going to make a fantastic resource for everyone who loves Apple’s products as much as we do, from the new customer buying their first iPad to the developer with years of experience. Now that we’re on Patreon, you can directly support our site and our staff.
Today we've changed our goals and objectives here on Apple World Today's Patreon page, and created a new pledge goal that you'll want to get involved in -- Team AWT. Basically, we realized that in order to attract your pledges, we needed to give you something extra in return.
With a pledge of $5 per month or more, you'll get:
- Member-only discounts and giveaways
- Access to the members-only Team AWT Community Forum
- A place on our Heroes page
- The warm and fuzzy feeling of knowing that you're keeping a popular, but struggling website alive!
We're still struggling. After three years of running AWT, our income is just plain horrible. At the present time, our take-home from Patreon is now just $543 a month. In order to keep the site running indefinitely, that number needs to be at least $1,500 a month as we have bills to pay.
If our monthly income from Patreon ever exceeds $3,000, we'll get rid of ads on Apple World Today.
If you are a current patron, we thank you and ask you to consider raising your monthly pledge. Become a supporter at the $5 monthly or greater level and you'll get all the benefits of Team AWT.
Thanks so much for your support.
