Jack Conte’s Patreon Allows Fans To Constantly Fund The Artists They Love

One of the issues with crowdfunding is feeling like you are constantly manufacturing a big event or crisis to fundraise off of. Instead of finding a way to consistently fund artists, we have turned to a funding model that sends money when we want some big event an artist has created. This is obviously problematic for musicians who want to pay rent every month and have sustainable income. In walks Patreon, a service that allows fans to budget how much they would like to give to the artists they love each month and as those artists create content, it will fund them with a split of this budget. By buying into these artists, they will gain access to special fan club-like features. There’s much more to it, so go check out this exciting new service here.
