Patron Newsletter Week 39
Hey guys! This week has been spent puzzling over how I can make this Patreon better suit your needs for 2017. I released a Backer/Former Backer/Non Backer survey (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdCGe91B-8htoJhS1Of1HoQkgAvT_01yUslQBbRxx_vClj_jg/viewform) as well as a draft of the upcoming main Patreon page (https://docs.google.com/document/d/16TBYBpzo06P88IbE5qMiqGUf2X-0mX2nK7B36dJyDNM/edit?usp=sharing) that includes loads of new goals and tiers, so if there's anything you'd like to see, now would be a great time to suggest something! I think my goal for next year will be to focus on using the audience I've built on Twitter/Tumblr/Instagram/Youtube/The Blog to help support you guys and bring new eyes to your projects, so there are a lot of proposed Patron Sponsor goals. These should hopefully be perfect if you run a blog, an art tumblr, a webcomic, or a channel of your own.
I've also recently launched a Friends and Affiliates page (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdCGe91B-8htoJhS1Of1HoQkgAvT_01yUslQBbRxx_vClj_jg/viewform) on the blog, so if you have a blog, podcast, or webcomic, please get in contact with me with your link and banner, and I'll add you to the page.
Additional proposed tiers and changes:
- Addition of Intro videos for longer series (may retroactively add intro videos to things like the Inktober Inking tutorials as well)
- At the $200 community goal, I will randomly select an OC from the Patrons in the $5+ tiers to work on as a traditional media backer exclusive tutorial, and will mail piece to the winner.
ArtSound Off Vlogs
I've also started my ArtSoundOff Vlogs, which are additional content to the channel, rather than a scheduled event, so your tutorials and reviews will continue as normal. Early responses to the Survey indicate that you guys would enjoy more vlogs, so hopefully these will hit the spot!
