#139: Jack Conte – Turning fans into patrons

Jack Conte Jack Conte became well known for being half of the musical duo that makes up the band Pomlamoose. A few years back Pomplamoose burst onto the scene through the usage of YouTube and “video songs.” You can hear more about that video song concept in episode 96 of our podcast.

In this episode, Jack is back with a new concept and a new company called Patreon. With the desire to find a simple way for Pomplamoose to collect a small amount of money from fans every time a new video is released, Jack decided to build his own solution. The result was www.Patreon.com . Patreon helps artists turn fans into patrons, who support them monetarily whenever new art is released.

If you’ve been considering the different fan funding models out there, this is definitely one to check out.
