1,000 True Fans? Try 100

  • Andreessen Horowitz
  • 3 months ago

More than a decade ago, editor Kevin Kelly wrote an essay called " 1,000 True Fans ," predicting that the internet would allow large swaths of people to make a living off their creations, whether an artist, musician, author, or entrepreneur.

To make a living as a creator, you only need 100 true fans, not 1,000 says Li Jin.

As social evolves from a "bigger is better" ad-driven model to niche communities with direct user payment, the playbook for how creators succeed also changes.

Patreon will now give creators cash advances on their subscription money

  • The Verge
  • 3 months ago
  • Patreon, the site creators love because it helps them make money off their work, has started a program called Patreon Capital, which grants micro-loans to creators.
  • It’s essentially a cash advance: you get money now in exchange for some of your future earnings plus a small premium.
  • It’s different from Patreon’s usual business — which is enabling direct subscriptions to people whose work you like, then taking a cut off the top — but it will diversify the company’s revenue, which should make Patreon a more sustainable business.

After paying out $1 Billion to creators, Patreon sets its sights on Europe

  • Variety
  • 6 months ago

Membership services startup Patreon has paid out over $1 billion to creators since its launch in 2013, the company announced Tuesday. Now, Patreon is getting ready for an international expansion, with a particular focus on Europe, Patreon’s senior vice president of product Wyatt Jenkins told Variety.

In addition to the $1 billion payout milestone, Patreon also announced Tuesday that it had surpassed 4 million paying members, or patrons. Patreon previously hit $500 million in payouts in Q4 of 2018, and 3 million patrons in January of this year. “This is growing quickly,” Jenkins said.

Jenkins argued that more and more consumers are warming up to the idea of supporting creatives directly with recurring monthly contributions. “There is a consumer mindset change that is happening,” he said, something that can at least in part be attributed to the growth paid services in general. “Comfort with subscription revenue is obviously helping,” Jenkins admitted.
