"WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT IS EFFORTLESS GENT?"

Yo dudes (and the occasional dudette), thanks for stopping by!

I’m Barron, and in 2009 I started Effortless Gent (effortlessgent.com) to help my guy friends dress better…for lots of reasons!

To score a job, to impress a lady friend, to feel more confident every day, to stop looking like a schlub and start looking like a man who cares about and pays attention to the little details... someone who has his sh*t together.

Nine(ish) years later, Effortless Gent has 1.5 million visitors a year reading our men’s style articles and tens of thousands following us on our different social platforms, which is… pretty crazy!

I love teaching guys how to use style to their advantage and get what they want out of life. The way we present ourselves affects how others perceive us. So when it’s as simple finding clothes that fit and complement you, why not use it to your advantage?

That’s my mission at Effortless Gent: To help guys who WANT to learn how to dress to their advantage… do just that.

Here's an example of our content!

“WHY DO YOU NEED MY SUPPORT?"

I want to continue creating videos and articles that help guys up their personal style. I'm also an independent creator who puts out free content 97% of the time and pays for all the un-fun stuff like hosting, an email service provider, regular site development, etc.

Your patronage helps support the site and keeps it running! Having a secure, platform-independent stream of revenue lets me create the best quality content I can.

Your patronage ALSO helps me take the necessary steps towards being self-sustaining with no dependence on sponsorships.

While I don’t see anything wrong with partnerships and working with brands I truly love (and brands I think you'll love, too), it’s a different story if you’re only taking on partnerships to sustain the site.

I would like Effortless Gent to be self-sustaining through the support of our readers and viewers, instead of at the mercy of some company I’m not super excited to tell you about. Y’know what I mean?

I appreciate all of your support. Even if you can’t pledge anything! Seriously. Just by reading, watching, and sharing our content helps this little community grow and it really is awesome to see.

WHAT YOUR PATRONAGE SUPPORTS

  • Web Hosting: The site has to live somewhere! effortlessgent.com is home to all our written style articles and serves as the central hub for all our other channels like YouTube and Instagram. If all the social networks disappeared tomorrow, you can still dress stylishly because Effortless Gent (the website) exists.
  • Email Service Provider: We need a way to keep in touch with you, and you wouldn't believe how much it costs to send an email to tens of thousands of subscribers! But email is still the best way to reach out, to tell you what we're up to here at EG, and to hear what's up with you, so email is a necessary and worthwhile expense.
  • Website upkeep and development: At this point, the Effortless Gent website is 5 years old (the bones and the code that makes it run). 5 years is like 50 years in Internet time. Part of your patronage would support the development of a new site so we can bring it up to 2018 / 2019 web standards. This means an easier-to-use site that runs fast with no delays.
  • Boosting Facebook posts: Facebook is “pay to play”, which means we have to pay to reach our own audience, the people who actively clicked “like” or “follow” on the Effortless Gent Facebook page. Sucks, but that’s how the game is played, so we have to play by Facebook’s rules in order to get our content to our readers like you.
  • Video editor: Currently I’m limited to making one style video per week for EG’s YouTube channel. I do everything: writing the script, setting up the shoot, set, and lighting, filming it, editing it, and finally, uploading it to YouTube. Editing is, by far, the most laborious task. If I can have a freelance video editor work with me on a per-video basis, I’d be able to at least double, if not triple, the amount of style content I can publish for you on YouTube. 
Tiers
Be part of the exclusive EG community
$2 or more per month
Every dollar counts! At this tier, you’re officially part of EG’s Patreon community and you'll earn access to future patron-only posts right here on Patreon.


I’ve published over 400 style articles on effortlessgent.com and produce 1 video a week on the YouTube channel. I hope you find them helpful and informative as you step up your personal style. Your support allows me to continue doing what I’m doing. 

Suggest my next style article or video!
$5 or more per month
You’re awesome! You’re next level! Thanks so much for supporting what I do at Effortless Gent. 


All patrons of this tier can submit their style content ideas (both articles and videos!) and they’ll be added to my content short list. You have real and direct impact on the type of content I make and topics I cover!

I'll answer your style Qs on video!
$25 or more per month
All patrons of this tier can submit their style questions ahead of time, and once a month, I’ll record a special video answering them and publish it on our YouTube channel! I’ll get as detailed as possible so you won’t be left wondering.


I also want to recognize you as a fan and EG patron, so your name will be included in a thank you end screen (unless you don’t want that, your choice) 

1 hour Style Session
$150 or more per month
Let’s hop on the phone (or Skype or Google Hangout) and you can ask me all the style questions you can fit in 1 hour!


I normally offer live personal styling services at $2500 and online style services at $1500, so consider this tier a light version of my personal styling service. 


This tier gives you more affordable access to get your style questions answered FAST, and at the same time, you can get a taste of what it’s like to work with me in case you ever want the full personal styling experience. 


On this call, we can do a basic style QA with anything you may be unsure of, talk about a few outfit ideas for an upcoming event, walk through your closet and figure out what you should buy next… anything!
