I saw Leo Babauta of ZenHabits tweet about this.
I thought it was an interesting use/approach of using Patreon. I'll say no more, go have a look: https://www.patreon.com/zenhabits
(And can someone explain how he looks like he is 21?!) :)
I like the fact he's going to be able get over the platform barrier to entry with all the people who already support other people on Patreon. (I'm convinced after someone follows one person on Patreon, the barrier to supporting a second person is significantly lowered) Memberships continuing to boom.
Good idea to use the the Patreon tiers as his product offering essentially. It's his storefront and ecommerce sorted all in one place fully hosted, very smart. 👍
Very creative. I like it.
