You might have noticed a new button on the ISMOKE website linking to Patreon.
Patreon is a website that helps creators get paid to make the content they love via a flexible subscription service which offers Patrons exclusive rewards for signing up.
With subscriptions on the rise, every service these days seems to be asking for you to part with your hard-earned cash, so we wanted to explain why we offer a rewards-based Patreon subscription here at ISMOKE.
You may be aware that YouTube does not allow us to show adverts on their platform, which loses us hundreds of dollars in revenue each month.
Our video and written content is of course free, both on this website, our YouTube channel and even across our social media pages. But to try and combat the lack of ad revenue, we have been working on some additional stuff for people who support the channel on Patreon.
So, what do you unlock by subscribing?
Rewards currently include a regularly updated monthly discounts list, showing patrons exactly where they can save money with various cannabis brands with discounts not found anywhere else.
For higher level tiers, we are even uploading back issues of ISMOKE Magazine from 2011 which you can download and keep forever.
Our Patreon page is also used as an updates blog, with news and developments about the channel that aren’t posted to social pages.
And as well as getting a personal thank you, Patrons are featured in the credits of our YouTube videos and mentioned in our live stream show each week.
If this sounds exciting, you can click here to go to our Patreon page and subscribe to support ISMOKE from as little as 85p ($1) per month!
Please do not feel like you have to subscribe to support the channel. We understand that this won’t suit everybody. For fans that don’t wish to become a Patron for whatever reason, liking, sharing and commenting on our posts, videos and content still goes a long way and gets our message out there to the masses.
Thanks to all our readers, watchers and subscribers, your support is much appreciated!
