Live in Everett is an independent media outlet about good things in Everett, WA. 
Founded in 2015 by locals who love Everett, we produce weekly content that takes shape in the form of articles, videos, podcasts and more. 

We want Live in Everett to be sustainable and keep growing.
Patreon is a way you can help support Live in Everett by making a small monthly contribution. Even just $1/month is a huge help.

We have some cool rewards available...
such as an exclusive gold Everett flag button (metallic gold) as well as the right to vote on Live in Everett's direction. If you sign up to become a patron, your monthly contribution will go straight back into Live in Everett and help pay for labor, office expenses, website fees, and more. 

Will you join us in waiving the Everett flag and become our patron?
We're excited to continue sharing about the good things happening in Everett. Thanks so much!


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. Why can't Live in Everett be sustainable through advertising?
Possibly someday. We've been pursuing advertisers since 2016. We've recieved some amazing support, but we're still far from being able to cover our base expenses.

2. Don't you just do Live in Everett to sell houses?
No, Live in Everett's founders Garret and Tyler don't sell much real estate anymore. Garret works for Live in Everett full time now (partially as a volunteer). Initially we thought we could fund LIEv through our real estate business, but as LIEv has grown and required more time and focus we've decided to focus away from real estate and want to make LIEv successful in its own right. 

3. Why not just spend less money?
We could, but then we'd have to create less content which would mean less visitors coming to our website, which would make getting more advertisers more challenging. We're hoping that eventually we can grow large enough to generate enough revenue to function sustainably. Our goal is to be a resource for the Everett community long term. 

4. Why not just operate with volunteers?
Some people do volunteer content or some time here and there, which is awesome. But our in-house team currently spends over 300 hours per month producing Live In Everett. To maintain quality standards and consistency, we don't believe operating solely with volunteers would produce the best end result in the long run.  

5. Why even bother with all this in the first place?
Everett is our home and we love it here. Sharing about good things in the community is fun, and hopefully makes life for our neighbors a little bit better here. 

6. Aren't you funded by the city of Everett or some grant/government agency?
No, although that might be nice someday. Live in Everett is 100% independent. We have never operated under any other name or received any funding beyond what we've personally sold and generated through advertising, events, or merchandise.
