I thought I would just do a quick news update and let all 996 of you (that’s right, almost 1,000 e-news subscribers!) that we are now on Patreon.
What does this mean for you?
Well, it means nothing really. All it means is that you now have the option of donating to help support myself and my Dad. It doesn’t have to be a big donation, you can even opt to donate just $1 a month if you wanted. The money raised will go straight back in to the show to help us provide better fishing films as well as help to improve our filming equipment.
So what do you get out of it?
Well, you can choose to donate as much or as little as you want ($1 minimum). However, if you opt to donate $3 or more, you get access to free downloadable content such as an official TAFishing iphone 6 background, as well as some Totally Awesome cartoon backgrounds done for us by Alex Arnault-Ham and access to a patron-only activity feed.
If you opt to pay $5 or more, then you get access to exclusive monthly Q&A videos with Graeme & Mike that will not be published publicly on our YouTube Channel. You guys can come up with the questions, and we’ll answer them as best we can – every month! Oh and you also get access to the free downloadable content as well as a Patron-only activity feed where you can talk to us and other patrons that have donated to us.
If you opt to pay $10 or more, you get access to exclusive behind the scenes footage of TAFishing. See what Graeme & Mike get up to in never-before seen footage. Get previews of episodes before they are even out yet. You also get access to the monthly Q&A videos as well as the free downloadable content and Patron only activity feed.
So what does this mean for those of you that don’t want to donate? Will it mean that you now have to pay to watch the Friday TAFishing videos that we upload each week?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! Nothing will have changed on our YouTube Channel. We will still be uploading our weekly fishing episodes on Fridays at 7pm GMT for those that enjoy watching them. Nothing will change there. Patreon is just an opportunity for those avid TAFishing fans out there who would like to support myself and Graeme and perhaps get access to more TAFishing content.
This is NOT obligatory, we are NOT forcing you to do this, this is entirely up to you. If you wish to donate, we will greatly appreciate it, if you don’t want to, then that is absolutely fine!
Many thanks to all of you for following and supporting us along the way. We’re looking forward to bringing you more Totally Awesome Fishing videos!
More e-news coming this weekend!
