PATREON

What is Patreon? Patreon is a social media platform that allows creators to run a subscription service for special content and products. It’s a unique ways for artists to build closer relationships with their fans and to provide exclusive experiences or rewards to their subscribers, aka patrons. Special rewards and gifts are available to patrons based on their monthly donation amount.

Joining is super easy! Go to Patreon.com or download the Patreon app (available for both iphone and android devices). You can sign in with Facebook or Google, or you can create a unique login on the site with your email address and a new password.

The app in particular is very user friendly! When I (or any other creators you follow) post, your phone will receive notifications, just like it does for Facebook, so you won’t miss a single post or reward.

Patreon is a unique and diverse platform. Many other artists and creators have special Patreon pages that you can support too. Patreon makes it easy to find creators and interact with their special feeds. The organization of the site and app makes it very easy to support and interact with as many creators as you want to support.

My Patreon page is located at www.patreon.com/stephanieoplinger.
