Thank you so much for even considering sending some money my way! A monthly pledge of a single dollar goes a long way and provides way more than ad revenue alone would. With that said, there are a few different methods to support me and there are a few different perks I offer as my way of saying thanks.Do keep in mind that all perks should be considered voluntary gifts to supporters and may be revoked or refused for any reason. For example but not limited to, if someone joins my Discord server to be rude/abusive they may be banned. If someone's username is offensive I may refuse to include them in the credits. That sort of thing.
Patreon is my preferred platform because I'm most familiar with it and they take the smallest cut. Not including taxes and fees; Twitch takes 50%, YouTube takes 30%, but Patreon takes 5%. That means more of the money you generously send me actually goes to me.
Perks and tiers: $1+ Gets you a role in my Club_LS Discord server and lets you see most videos early. $3+ Gets you the previous perks and also your name at the end of most of my videos. Patreon is also one of the few platforms I use which lets you pledge a custom amount. Thank you very much to the generous supporters who give more than the default amounts!
How to receive perks: Link to Discord in the Patreon connected apps settings. Patreon will invite you to my server automatically. You can see early videos and other posts in my Patreon feed.
The most convenient option: you can quickly become a member of my channel by clicking the "Join" button on any of my videos!
Perks and tiers: $0.99 Gets you a role in my Club_LS Discord server and lets you see most videos early. $2.99 Gets you the previous perks and also your name at the end of most of my videos.
How to receive perks: Link YouTube from within Discord by going into User Settings > Connections > YouTube. Check my Community Page on YouTube to see Member-Only posts including early videos.
As of this writing I'm still quite new to Twitch. I usually stream there very casually. However, I am a Twitch Affiliate so you can indeed support me with subs and bits!
Perks and tiers: I offer Discord access as a perk for Twitch subs!
How to receive perks: Link Twitch from within Discord by going into User Settings > Connections > Twitch.
As of this writing I consider Utreon to be in an experimental stage. I don't currently upload new videos there, however, I'm excited by the possibility of a viable YouTube alternative gaining traction! I like their website so far and it already has a lot of useful features. Much like Patreon's grandfathered plan, Utreon also takes only a 5% cut. Subscribing with a custom amount is also possible by clicking the "subscribe" button on my channel page.
Perks and tiers: Utreon's lowest tier is $4.99, but I can offer all the same top-tier perks as Patreon. Discord access, early videos shared in that Discord [maybe someday uploaded to Utreon directly], and your name at the end of most videos!
How to receive perks: Link Discord in your Utreon conncted apps settings. You should be invited to the server automatically, but feel free to message me if anything goes wrong. Until I start uploading to Utreon directly, you can find occasional early video uploads shared in that server.
There's a "Thanks" button on my videos which you can use for a one-time gift. Similarly, Super Chats are a way to tip during a live stream or video premiere.
Of course, you could always simply use Patreon and cancel your pledge before the next charge!
