I launched my Patreon campaign a year ago when I started my summer project. The promises of Patreon were big, but they haven’t quite delivered. I’m “going rogue” with this new method of serving patrons.
Here’s the background. As you may know, much of my personal income comes from MonumentMembers.com, a website dedicated to providing source material to academic speakers and debaters. I’m in the process of switching membership programs.* It’s a cumbersome process that I am strong-arming for the next competitive season (2020-2021). Right now, Monument Members are wrapping up their current season.
Without getting too detailed, let me say this: A traditional membership program is a TON easier, simpler, more intuitive, and smoother than Patreon.com. As I was setting up Monument Members, a convicting birdie in my head kept telling me, “Chris…you gotta set this up for your Patrons!”
Besides, my personal website was in dire need of attention. So, here we are at ChrisJeub.com with a new way to set up support. Through a ChrisJeub.com membership!
If you’re reading this right now, you have joined me in my writing. Thank you so much! The Patron Posts category will be “protected” for friends like you. Others will be able to read the summaries, but only you (when logged in) will be able to access the posts.
Thank you so much for your continued support, my friend. We will do great things together!
* Here’s the skinny for you WordPress nerds like me. I have been using MemberPress for years, but I have been disappointed in their lack of options, clunky integrations, and added coding that inevitably sucked up my time. Their prices have creeped up over the years, too. So when WishList Member came out with a lifetime offer that beat my current application’s yearly price, I couldn’t refuse. I’m in…and technically speaking, so are you! 🙂
