Media makers in the 21st century don't have the luxury of relying on a single funding source.  A bulk of my revenue currently comes from YouTube through the Google Adsense program. It's great and growing. But I don't want to always rely on having all of my eggs in that basket!

That's why I have the Lon.TV Store to help recoup some item acquisition expenses, and why I put affiliate links in the description of most of the products I review.  

I am now launching this Patreon - partly because all of the cool kids are doing it - but also because I've received some notes from viewers who want to support the channel monetarily. Patreon (at the moment any way) feels like the most friction-free way to do just that.  

I don't like asking for money so I won't be turning the YouTube channel into a telethon anytime soon, but if you feel like you're getting some value out of the content every little bit will help the channel grow.

I also don't want to do backer-only specials as I feel this excludes people who are not able to contribute. So I think I might do more of the things the Patreon backers would like to see but make those videos accessible to everyone.

BRONZE TIER - Every little bit helps! Give a dollar or as much as you'd like beyond that. Any help is appreciated. I'll announce your support on a weekly wrapup video and then have you listed in the rolling "end credits" for as long as you're a donor. The credits page changes at the beginning of each month.

Patreon patrons also get "first dibs" on buying some of the devices I get in for review before they go on the store. Usually  just a few bucks for shipping prep.

SILVER TIER - The $5 award is the same as as the $1 tier however you'll be listed on a static slide at the end of each video. I am open to suggestions from my $5 and up Patrons on what kind of exclusive perks you'd like!

GOLD TIER - You'll get a shout-out on every video I produce that month and I am planning to print up some mugs! Donors of $50 or more will get an attractive coffee mug once I get them produced and ready for distribution. US addresses only, please.

Sponsor every video on the channel for a month. I'll do an on-air read of your ad as a 5 second pre-roll before the video begins - but please note I have the right to refuse any advertising that's not appropriate for the audience.

We'll be able to afford some part time producing help to prep products for review on the channel. This person or people will also work on booking more interviews!
