As stated in the video, this isn’t by any means a way for me to brag about my earnings (not much to brag about, honestly!), but a way to give people an idea of how much you can earn through social media alone when being a self employed artist. I hope it’s helpful!

Thank you so much for your video and sharing your experiences with us Hannah! :)
I enjoy supporting you on Patreon and I’ve been thinking about growing my own for a while now.
Yet I don’t receive much feedback on social media and I’m not sure if it’s too soon to start.
In my situation how would you start your Patreon? :)
As I’ll finish my Bachelor at Art University soon I’m thinking a lot about how I can do what I love so thank you very much for your video at the perfect time! <3 :)

Thank you for sharing your knowledge Hannah! As an artist what have been the best platforms for growing an audience?

Liz V. Art says:

Great, informative video Hannah! Happy to hear that Patreon is working out for you 😀 When it first came around I wasn’t to keen on it, but it’s proven to be superhelpful to creative people. It’s great!

Sara Faber says:

Thank you so much for making this video! It helps a lot since I just went self-employed :) Subbed!

Mo Nilla Co. says:

What would you suggest for artists that have been ‘self-employed’ and want to do Patreon for the first time?

Jesmin Manna says:

Anyone know that opening song??

NeaBEWG says:

Thank you for this, it was very informative! I would like to ask, how are you going around/dealing with the algorithm changes in Facebook/Instagram?

Sakuems says:

That’s really strange in a way because I make a lot more from Etsy than patreon myself. I actually never made much on Patreon, even with my biggest month It was about 400$ and a LOT of work. My etsy works a lot more, about 3 times that amount for the last 2 months. I’m wondering how did you make your patreon work ? I can’t seem to find good rewards ? i tried many things but I never pass 40 or 50$ a month

I feel the stigma against talking about money needs to stop. Thank you for sharing this.

Hey, thanks for the video! Great insights! I do have one question: when you use Etsy, do you print out and ship your own prints or do you use an online service connected to etsy to print/ship your prints? If you print your own, what advice/printer/paper do you use? Thanks!
