Quick Message

Hey everyone! YouTube, for me, has been a place of amazing personal expression, both in a professional capacity, as well as a gaming community. I've learned a ton on this network, and YouTube has offered me the chance, as a platform, to give back some of that knowledge, and some of that excitement and entertainment, in the form of video. 

Recently, my channel has begun growing rapidly, due to new gaming content. It's a thrill that so many people are into it! I've spent the last few years supporting creators that made the content I wanted to see, and now I get to make content for others. It's a wonderful world. There's no substitute for putting smiles on people's faces and entertaining and educating minds. YouTube allows me a venue where I can have fun doing all of that every day.

Why Start A Patreon?

Recently, an increasing number of people have been asking me "how can I support the channel," and up until now, all I've been able to say is "maybe turn off your ad-blocker when you watch my videos." The thing is though... I hated that response then, and I hate it now. Nobody likes ads. It's a reality of this interface and this 'free video for you' platform that allows creators like myself to operate. 

So this campaign here is meant as a way to provide a support venue for those people who are interested in supporting me in making more content online, while at the same time, turning ON their adblockers if they want to, so they don't get annoyed by the ads my channel simply must have in order to operate (and allow me to keep producing). I hate ads as much as you, trust me. If I get enough supporters here... I'll turn them all off on YouTube, and everywhere else!

IMPORTANT: My videos will ALWAYS be free to view on YouTube when I create them for YouTube! You NEVER have to pledge to this Patreon to watch my videos, and I'll keep making them in the future if nobody pledges here at all. I love what I'm doing, and I love it all being available to you, regardless of money. This is merely a way for those who want to show their support (above watching and liking content) to do so. 

How Will Patreon Help Me?

Patreon will help me in numerous ways, the most notable being, financial support for creating additional content for YouTube, as well as maintaining and improving my existing equipment and workflow. I'm a full-time, self-employed business operator that works every day, and many times long into the night every night, handling projects for people all over the world. My real passion is video, and this network has allowed me to grab hold of something I find truly magical and fun. Ad revenue has been a subtle supplement for the time spent instead of working on other projects, and Patreon will allow me to supplement even more, releasing me from 16 hour days at my job, and allowing a few hours (or more maybe) to go into this awesome community here on YouTube.

What that translates to... is more support = more videos, faster! 

How Am I Rewarding Supporters?

In addition to the obvious thank you's and access to the Patron feed, I have a variety of rewards I've come up with which I think illustrate the value your support has with me, as well as some unique rewards that few (or no) other YouTubers are doing. From traditional ones such as your name at the end of videos and shout-outs, to unique ones, such as access to exclusive live streams of the editing process of the videos, as well as two-way communication during that process, so you can even have conversations with me while I'm working on the next episode, and see it all edited together in real time!

Popular Rewards For My Favorite People!

I'm extremely active with Patrons, and any patron will confirm: I engage a LOT with my audience. I've formed a Discord server that's heavily integrated into my content and community strategy, and I utilize Discord heavily for keeping in contact with great people like you. Every Patron, from Bronze to Ridiculous level, show off their support with colored flare on the server, as well as gain access to an exclusive VIP channel where insider information is constantly being shared, as well as EARLY VIDEO RELEASES! Patrons get to watch what I'm about to publish, sometimes even as much as a whole day before it goes live.

Check out all the details on the side of this campaign page to learn what else I like to do for VIPs, and ask around on the Discord if you want to know what being a Patron might be like. Our Discord is a free place for all, but only VIPs get access to everything that experience has to offer: https://discord.gg/FcEVHKq

INSANE!
$50 or more per month
You are absolutely Insane! - This tier only exists because some people are crazy, and mentioned that I should have it. So... here it is. No idea why you would think I'm worth this, and I cannot even begin to understand what I have to do to say thank you for it. You're insane. Absolutely nuts. 


If you pledge to this tier for at least 3 months, you'll also claim LIFETIME Bronze benefits and you'll always have access to videos early via the Discord. Forever.


There isn't anything aside from that new offered to people at this tier, aside from a crazy multi-colored name in the credits. I'll create a 1 of 1, customized animated name with unique color movements for your name at the end of my videos. It's bragging rights. That's pretty much it. From waaay down deep... thank you for your overwhelming generosity.

Goals
$211 of $300 per month
This level is an awesome milestone for me as a video creator, and would allow me to dedicate a single day per week doing nothing but working on videos for the channel without my wife shaking her head about it. :)

This would speed up the rate at which videos are produced by allowing me to dedicate 4 whole days to it every month (in addition to the time I already do), rather than just trying to fit it into the gaps of my work projects!

This will also unlock special PATRON EXCLUSIVE GIVEAWAYS!
