Pretty cool to see creators attracting viable amounts of support on Patreon. Already, these guys have hit $7,404.50 per month from 1,100 patrons!

Check it out: http://www.patreon.com/redlettermedia

I wonder how much their supporter base will continue to grow over the next few years.

Shoot, I just need a fraction of that to continue my comic. Why can't I be that successful in my crowdfunding?

Well, from the "how to succeed on patreon" article I did, most creators said that their support came from their existing fanbase, so I think that as you expand that, you will begin to see more pledges via the platform.

Yes, I think that's everyone's reaction: "I would be happy with a fraction of that support!" I think, if you adopt the free-content model, then you have to assume that there will be a long period where you fund your content creation by non-creative work (the 'day job'). This is frustrating, because it also means that you'll have less time to create, but I guess you have to be patient. Or find a rich relative. :)

The production company wants me to sign a contract that i only get 1/3 of the profit of my web series ...i think it's unfair since ads doesn't really make a lot of money (or do they ? correct me if im wrong)

I think everyone will get that envious feeling looking at that amount earned. And it's no strange, because it merely looks like total magic to the rest.

I wasn't aiming for numbers that big, I thought I could just get some small tips that's all.
But seeing more people getting this huge amount of income does kinda inspire me.
Though it also reminded me they are a group, unlike my self and many others are single person.
I saw a video yesterday and talked about how patrons can take back their money anytime, makes me worried a little, but I believe in humanity more. I share this video here if people want to know what I'm saying

There are plenty of Patreon campaigns with paltry amounts being donated per month, which I think looks bad. We decided to wait until our audience was well established before starting a Patreon campaign.
