Welcome to the BBB Patreon

Hi, I’m Mariam and I am the founder of BBB!

BBB started in September 2015 because I wanted to connect with bloggers like you. Black British bloggers who are sharing content that reflect the Black British experience.

It started as a private Facebook group where you could share posts and ideas and has now expanded to include a weekly newsletter, brand collaboration opportunities, networking events and workshops.

BBB has been a labour of love funded with my savings plus a little help from the earnings made through brand relationships. The last three years wouldn’t have been possible without the financial support of family and friends, the many people along the way who reduced their rates significantly or volunteered their time to support BBB and of course the amazing content creators who engaged with us online and offline.

Supporting and empowering the BBB community is a full time commitment that I am deeply passionate about and while I am proud of what has been accomplished so far, it is just the beginning.

Why Patreon?

I want to build a premium subscription platform that goes above and beyond to support Black British online content creators. Build our own table where we can shape, influence and impact the blogging industry. Set an industry standard built on transparency where you are provided with the resources and opportunity to build successful platforms. 

The premium subscription will deliver:

Written and video content. Detailed content that helps you on your journey to be a bigger and better content creator. A more specific how-to series, anonymous money diaries, frank interviews with established content creators and insights from industry experts.

Online forums. A safe online space where you can connect with other creators within your niche, take part in quarterly growth challenges and access peer reviewed resources.

More events at discounted rates. So far we have hosted eight events and the value of taking that online energy offline is undeniable. More hands on workshops where you can learn skills in real time and networking events where you can meet your peers plus get access to brand reps and industry insiders.

To make this happen, BBB will need to be self-sustaining. With a secure stream of capital I will be able to:

Build and maintain the website. I will build as much of the website myself as I can but for the more complex bits I will need to pay a web developer.

Commission writers and video content. My top priority is consistent high quality content, a large chunk of which will be commissioned from experienced creators. It is only fair that they are paid well for their time and expertise.

Invest in events. This will allow me to cover the basic costs of our events, primarily the cost of the venues and allocating a budget for speakers.

What our patrons get

You lovely patrons will be BBB’s founding members with lifetime membership to the premium subscription at your pledge rate! As founding members, you will be the heart of BBB. You will have a say in shaping our future, from setting our code of conduct to deciding on the topics covered in our workshops. For this reason, patronage will be limited to 300 members

You will also get early access to the premium website and in the meantime enjoy exclusive content via Patreon and our Founding Member's mailing list.

If you would like to support with a one-time donation as opposed to becoming a monthly patron you can do so at paypal.me/blackbritishbloggers.

Thank you for taking the time to read all of the above. If you do choose to support BBB, I am immensely grateful to have you with me for our next chapter. Thank you thank you thank you!

FAQ

Can I pay in £’s?
Unfortunately not, all Patreon payments are charged in US dollars. You will be charged $8 + 20% VAT (which at current conversion rates is about £7.50). Your bank or PayPal will also charge a nominal non-sterling transaction fee. Rates vary depending on the bank.

Do I have to be an online content creator to become a patron?
Short answer, yes. Our patrons will be our founding members and should represent the community that we are building. If you aren’t an online content creator but wish to support the work we are doing, you can make a one-time donation via PayPal. We will have a system built in to support Brands/PRs once the website is up and running. You can register your interest by emailing [email protected].
