The 10 Most Well Funded Patreon Creators On Social Media
Patreon is changing the way that artists live and work in the 21st century. Artists have unprecedented opportunities for exposure, but monetizing that exposure and making a living is still difficult in the age of ad blockers and free access to art. Patreon is changing the model by connecting creators directly to their audiences and giving fans the opportunity to support creators with small recurring pledges. There are over 50,000 creators on Patreon, and the top creators have tens of thousands of patrons.
It’s tempting to compare Patreon to Kickstarter with its tiers, pledges, and goals, but there’s a fundamental difference in Patreon campaigns, which are often sustained efforts. It’s not about creating a single project, but contributing to a creator’s ongoing work. We’ve compiled a list of the top creators on Patreon who have continuing support from a massive stable of engaged fans.
