Do you know how artists earn money? If you think that artists get commission for painting every month then you are wrong! We don’t get those requests every month. And the beginner artists don’t get commissions for a long time. It is very hard for full time artists to stay financially stable.
So artists sell art prints, books, stickers etc. But to do all those things tool like Patreon helps a lot. Have you ever heard about it? Do you know how it works?
Patreon is a membership platform that provides business tools for creators to run a subscription content service. It allows creators and artists to earn a monthly income by providing exclusive rewards and perks to their subscribers, or “patrons”.
By becoming Patrons to your artists, you get rewards every month or week. For example if you are giving $2 every month to your favorite artist, you will get an art print or sticker sheet every month in rewards.
Artists create page on Patreon website. They add all the levels with different pricing and different reward. The higher the price, more rewards you will get.
Next, you need to visit the Patreon page. You can choose any tier of subscription you want. You can decide how much you want to support to your favorite artist. Many artists keep the first tier to $1 or $2 so that every one can get rewards from them. It is helpful for someone new to Patreon. And the great thing is you can cancel it anytime you want.
This is the list of rewards I am providing every month or week. Every tier has some of the rewards. The highest tier of $20 has all the rewards. All artists have different rewards listed in their page. As I already mentioned, you can select whatever tier you want.
Your support can let artists do what they love and they can create more art without worrying about money. And you can get your favorite artist’s paintings or podcast or personal videos or music for just a little amount you spend every month.
Today I saw one quote on Instagram. I don’t remember it exactly but it was something like, “support your artist friend just like you support your favorite actor/actress whom you don’t know”.
I am giving special offer on my patreon page until June 3, 2020.
