The Obligatory Bit About BadGup

Patreon is a great way to show your support to content creators that you enjoy. Whether its a small one off donation or something more regular it allows others to give a little something back should they wish to.

That being said, I make content purely because I enjoy it. I have a job in the 'real world' which supports me so please don't feel obligated to part with your own money unless you can afford to do so.

Until I reach a point where I am able to consistently publish regular, quality content I would not dream of being paid for it so I realise this page is something of a contradiction at the moment. In light of what I just said I won't be creating various tiers of rewards any time soon as it holds no value yet. I could go down the merchandise route, the shout-out on videos offers or a whole host of other 'done to death' ideas that you see repeated throughout the platform but in truth, where's the value in that?

If you want a shout-out on one of my videos just ask. I'm not going to charge someone for that and I think it's rather egotistical of the people that do. If you want merchandise... buy it from a shop for now? Maybe one day the channel will be big and my evil fish will have some market value but that day is a long way off so I'll hold off on the printing press for the time being.

If you read this far... I'm impressed! The TL;DR of this post ultimately is this. I won't ask anyone to part with their money. You're an adult and can decide that for yourself. For now I'd be quite happy with you just enjoying the content thaty I'm putting out into the wild.

Thanks,
BadGup
Tiers
T1 (Needs a fancy name) - Llamasplosion!
$1 or more per month
The Obligatory Bottom Tier (in name only)
Less than the price of a cup of coffee but its still your hard earned money which means there is no such thing as a small donation.

You will have my thanks, and I don't just mean that as a word. Knowing you've put your hand in your pocket so to speak simply to support a total stranger means a great deal to me and I am genuinely grateful for that.
Tier 2 - The Sequel
$5 or more per month

For a page that tells you that money isn't everything this is going to be a hard sell!

So I need to come up with something better than my eternal gratitude from Tier 1. I could say I'm even more grateful because you donated a greater amount but we all know that would be a lie. Like the previous tier, thank you so much for parting with you're own money. It does mean a lot to me and I say that with all sincerity.

What I can offer is access to the script I write for each and every video. It's messy, often confusing and a little bit wild. You'll see all the little notes I include for my future self during editing along with the bits that don't make the cut.


I know it's not much but I'd rather give you something. I hope you enjoy it.

Tier 3 - The Hit or Miss Third One
$10 or more per month

Three tiers in and I'm struggling for inspiration. Right now I have nothing to physically give. If things go well I'll invite you onto my yacht but we're not there yet.

As with all these types of things, all previous tiers are included with this one. So does that mean you get my thanks three times? Not sure how that works...

For those who donate to Tier 3 I'll include you in the credits of my upcoming videos as supporters (and financial backers) of what I do. Again, I know its not much in the grand scheme of things but hopefully it'll show you that I really do appreciate your support.


In addition to all of that you will be given access to the scripts from Tier 2 along with a compilation of the outtakes that didn't make the cut for YouTube. Some swearing may be included ;)


I don't, in all honesty expect anyone to donate their money to me let alone over $10. Hopefully one day the content I create will be of value to someone so until then this will be more of a placeholder than anything else. Maybe you could use this time to choose your yacht outfit?

Goals
0% complete
Improved Equipment
I will be able to invest in proper recording equipment and dedicated editing software which will in turn improve the quality of my content but in all honesty I will be working to improve the quality of my content regardless. If you want to help out with that then fantastic but please don't think that I will just rest on my laurels until I get paid.
