I just found a site called Patreon which is for ongoing funding, rather than a specific project like kickstarter. Does anyone use it? Is there something similar that’s UK based?
I don’t know much about it, I have heard it mentioned on Youtube and alternative news sites for donations, merchandise etc. It looks a bit like Paypal. They seem to be having a few problems in the EU. http://www.wired.co.uk/article/patreon-eu-vat
My friend uses it, she’s an artist. She’s had great success with it, she’s also had huge success funding a project via kickstarter.
That’s good to hear. I haven’t got a major project in mind, I’d just like something to help tick over.
I’ve made a page. I’ll see how it goes. Fingers crossed.
