- AdBlock Absolution
Well guilt no more, by indulging in AdBlock Absolution you are hereby relieved of all feelings of guilt. You would have to watch a thousand or more videos per month to earn the equivalent amount in ad revenue as this level of Patreon Support. So please do, support the channel and turn off the ads if you would like.
PatreonPatreon is a subscription system that allows you to tip a small amount each month to support the creators you enjoy. By doing this you help us move away from having to rely on ad revenue, which allows us to put more effort into content as well as not be constantly stressed about views.
AdBlockThese days a growing number of forms of internet advertising is invasive and irritating. Many people turn to ad-blocking software to improve their viewing experience of webpages and videos. Unfortunately for the content creator, this cuts into their livelihood by cutting off the lion's share of income from their content.
We are using Patreon to allow viewers and subscribers to support us directly, allowing them complete absolution for using an ad-blocker while watching our content. Any pledge is worth more than the ad revenue that would be earned, so pledge, block ads, do what you want to do.
So before you click off this page, We like to just quickly give you something to consider when it comes to supporting us and how significant an impact you can make.
Logical ArgumentLet’s say in any given month you have your income and your expenses. You budget hundreds, if not thousands of dollars for various things that you either need, or you want. Let’s say you like to go out to dinner, or you like to go to the movies, or you buy music or DVDs. Whatever form of entertainment you enjoy, you spend money on it.
The average movie ticket in the US (according to http://natoonline.org/data/ticket-price/) costs $7.96 per person as of the most recent data. You pay ~$8 and you get 2 hours of entertainment, maybe 3 if you only go to the longest movies out there. Then you pay $20 for popcorn and some soda. And add another $8 for your date/spouse. (And a god-awful amount if you happen to bring your kids). So once per month you get entertained for 2 hours and it costs you somewhere between $8 if you went alone with no snacks, as as much as $8+$8+$20=$36 if you went on your average date night movie. All for a meager 2 hours of entertainment. On the other hand, I put out 8 videos per day, every single day, that vary between 15 minutes and 25 minutes in length. Let’s assume the shortest length for arguments sake and say 15 minutes x 8 video x 365 days per year = 43,800 minutes of entertainment per year. /12 = 3,650 minutes per month. /60 = 60.83 hours per month.
Now naturally, not everyone will watch every single video that goes up on the channel. But if you even watch a *tenth* of the videos we make, you are getting over 6 hours of entertainment per month. Is it as good as a movie? Maybe. Probably not. But is it worth *some* nominal value that is greater than $0? Definitely.
DecisionSo you decide for yourself. If you enjoy the content, if you find yourself waiting for the next video, or returning to the channel frequently, *and* you have the means to financially support it, please consider doing so.
Thanks for hearing us out, and whether you decide to support us on Patreon or not, We are very glad to have you as a part of the audience. Thank you!
