THIS IS WHAT HAS HAPPENED SO FAR:
Not bloody much. This is my own fault for not promoting it incessantly like the successful people do. EVERY video ends with “Please like this video and subscribe and oh by the way if you want to do a monthly pledge (or per video for some), check out our Patreon profile.”
I simply can’t bring myself to just ask and ask and ask ALL THE TIME. So we have enough to go big on our Dropbox account but not enough to do all the other program and service subscriptions to make better videos. We definitely NEED to have regular and consistent support either via crowdfunding or somehow getting the Google AdSense to work for us but thus far we have fallen short.
This is what we have for our Patreon profile at the moment:
Text in the video:
We imagine a world that is open wide to us, a place filled with new experiences. Thankfully there is a way we can share this with not only our family and friends, but with the world… with YOU! Become a part of our journey and see all the images, hear the sounds, witness the sights and actions, meet new people, and hopefully learn new things with us. Our goal is to be the change that we want to see in the world and open our minds (and yours) by seeing the things that travel allows.
So please join us. We would love to share with you!
If you would like to be more a part of the process, you can support our project with a monthly pledge here: https://www.patreon.com/emunaendeavor Thank you so much for your interest in our journey!
Oh and speaking of our YouTube channel… The URL is currently https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqwGBmq4ZZckAcS-s3JSl7A and we can’t change it until we get 100 subscribers. We have nearly 1000 people following us around the interwebs, so hopefully that number goes up soon. :-)
But enough about us, what about YOU?
Have any of you ever done crowdfunding? What has your experience been (good or bad or indifferent)? Tell us your story in the comments!
As always, thanks for reading! ^_^
