Would you like to listen to more meditations and relaxation exercises than I have made available on Spotify? And my sleep stories? Aren’t audiobook streaming apps available where you live? Or don’t you want to pay $15/€15 or so per month for an app like that just to listen to me? Now you can! I have set up my own membership site on Patreon where subscribers can pay less than half of that and stream all my content as much as they want. If you become a so-called patron you will also have access to everything as soon as I have finished producing it―meaning earlier than everyone else! Sometimes you will also get to weigh in on what version of a meditation I should release and what background music that might work best, for example.
I am also going to use Patreon as a kick-starting platform. Everything I make on Patreon subscriptions in 2021 will be used to hire the translators and voice-over artists I need to make my products available in more languages. 350 monthly subscribers for one year will make it possible for me to make my current catalog available in one more language. The more patrons from one region, the higher the priority will be to make the content available in their language.
Patreon is a well-known platform that creatives use to provide subscribing members access to exclusive and/or early content and/or as a kick-starting site. The great thing about it is that Patreon handles all the payments and supply and support all the technology needed so that I can focus on creating more content instead of managing the platform. The especially great thing about this is that I can go on vacation and know that if anyone has any problems with their payments or getting access to the content, they can just contact Patreon support and they will help them out. So no-one needs to worry about me not being available. Patreon is available as an app.
My Membership Tiers
The tiers cost the same. The most important feature is that the tier you choose decide what kinds of notifications you get and what content you can stream. Are you interested in hearing when I upload a new product, regardless of what language it is in, then choose All languages. If you only want to listen to my content in English and only want notifications when something new is available in English, choose English Only. Similarly, if you only want to listen to and hear about new content in Swedish, choose Swedish Only.
Navigate My Patreon
Once you have installed the app on your device (not necessary if using a computer), created an account/logged in, and chosen your membership tier. You can either filter posts directly in the app or use the product section here on the website or my Filter-Quickly page. Once logged in your device or browser should remember your login so when you click the button on the product page, or title on the Filter Quickly-pages, it will open the Patreon audio-player and stream the meditation.
Afraid You Would Change Your Mind?
It is easy to cancel your membership whenever you want via your Patreon account settings. Go to ‘my memberships’ and click edit next to my pledge. You will then see the option to cancel your membership.
Patreon Help Center
Patreon Help Center is a great place to start if you want to know more about the app. Learn more about how to switch tiers etc. There is also a support area where you can contact Patreon if you have any questions.
