Erica Griffin is creating Tech Reviews on YouTube
52

patrons

Welcome!

I’m Erica the Technology Nerd Who Likes to Film Stuff.

“Insanely in-depth” is my style. I make video reviews about smartphones, laptops, tablets, and more. My viewers get to see what a device is like before they buy it, and I offer comparisons between similar devices to help them make informed decisions.

The Campaign




For me, YouTube is a full-time job without full-time compensation. Ad clicks are not always reliable, but your support can be! My husband Jon and I have reworked my Patreon campaign to be more engaging and sustainable.

The single $1.00 tier reduces the cost for longtime supporters and encourages new patrons to join. With only one tier, the rewards become much simpler to manage. As before, you can pledge as little or as much as you like.

Besides paying the bills, your contributions will:
  • help me afford more devices to review
  • reduce time spent chasing down sponsorships
  • provide better equipment for producing my videos
  • reduce travel costs to events (Mobile World Congress, CES)

Thank You!

To my existing patrons, your continued generosity is a blessing. You help me do what I love with less stress and greater success. To prospective patrons, thank you for reading!

Not to worry—my content is still 100% free! Any and all support you wonderful people provide is appreciated! =)


Tiers
The One-Dollar Deal
$1 or more per month
Weekly Updates

What Erica’s working on, any thoughts she wants to share, and what she’s eyeballing next (written by Jon). May include glib commentary on industry news.


Exclusive / Early Access to Clips & Photos

Erica shoots a lot of test photos and clips for her reviews. Jon will curate these for your enjoyment! Some will be exclusive, others will be reposted later to social media. Expect to see Bruiser the Chihuahua being ridiculous.


Select Early Access to Videos 

Sometimes a video has a deadline, sometimes not! We’ll provide early access to select YouTube videos via unlisted URLs (up to 24 hours in advance). Marginally improves your chances of commenting “first!”


Exclusive Badges (coming later)

New and existing patrons will receive a thank-you graphic that identifies you as a supporter! Use it in your avatar, your email signature—you can even frame it!


Graphic Design Assets / Sketches (coming later)

Jon will share his design assets and sketches related to the Tech Nerd branding. These presently include: video thumbnails (recurring) and a new cartoon avatar of Erica (in process).

Goals
52 of 100 patrons
If we hit this mark, we'll have a grand old celebration!
