Here's the full Patreon training I did with Peter Hollens
Hey patrons! We've talked a bit over the past few weeks about updates I'm making to Patreon here. I mentioned I did a session with Peter Hollens getting his advice for how I serve you guys better. Well, here's the video of my conversation with him. He shares a LOT of great tips, ideas, and perspectives on how to best setup and use Patreon.

Our full conversation was much longer than this video. If you want to hear the whole thing, you can find it on iTunes, Soundcloud, and Stitcher. Or, here's the direct link to our full conversation on SoundCloud.

If you use Patreon with your audience or are considering it, I think this video is a must-watch. I learned so much and I'm sure you will, too. I'll be continuing to follow Peter's advice from this video with you guys here.

Also, here's a YouTube playlist of other videos on using Patreon  which you might find useful, too.

Thank you, patrons, for making content like this possible for creators around the world who have messages they're supporting! You guys rock!
