login Crowdfunding Platform: Patreon - Signpost 2 Grow - Signpost 2 Grow

Patreon is different from most other crowdfunding sites in that operates on a subscription-based model rather than a one-off bulk payment. It’s primarily aimed at finding support for typically underfunded creative producers, like writers, artists, musicians and podcasters. In the words of the site, ‘Creators, come get paid.’ A great way to monetise that side-hustle.

The site has allowed creators to collect over $150 million in funding, and claims that the average patron gives more monthly than to subscriptions like Netflix and Amazon Prime.

5 percent of funds raised goes to the site, and another 5 percent on transaction fees.

Top funded project: The Chapo Trap House podcast counts 22,095 patrons and receives $98,672 in funding per month

Best for: Creative producers
