Support me in my efforts to keep this content coming your way. Check out my Patreon Page to find out how!
I truly believe in the tight-knit Law Abiding Biker Community that has shown me so much support since I started this content creation journey! It is so awesome that you are interested in supporting me and the content I create and that is exactly what I am talking about. Law Abiding Bikers, the motorcycling majority, are the most generous and real down to earth people on the planet! I can't imagine belonging to a better community of people than this.
It is so awesome that the Law Abiding Biker Community is interested in supporting my content! Patreon provides me that opportunity, even in very small amounts (which is my favorite part), while allowing me to return the favor in the form of “rewards.” Patreon is safe, so you can set a limit or cap per month, so you don't go over your budget. Example; if you pledge $1 per episode/video release, set a monthly limit/cap of $10, I release 20 episodes/videos………..you are only charged your $10 monthly limit/cap and not a penny more! How cool is that?
I believe now that those who love the content I create want to see me continue doing what I do and will reward my hard work voluntarily. This is much more rewarding than trying to sell ads to fund the content, which can also be difficult. Creating original media content isn't easy, but a little support can […] keep me creating and maybe even propel me to make a living at it!
As the Law Abiding Biker Podcast, my YouTube channel, and the website continue to grow, it becomes harder and harder to answer all the emails and comments everywhere in a timely manner. I personally love when I get a fast response when I send an email or comment online. Because of that, I have always replied to 100% of emails and comments and I usually do so quick. But, recently that has become much harder. By giving priority to anyone who contributes just $5 or more per podcast episode or video release, I'll be able to ensure that I can reply to your comment inless than 24 hours. I like that and so will you. 😉
The Truths & Reality:
Creating this content and getting it to you does not come without a price to me, my two daughters, and wife, both financially and in work hours spent. Operating costs are growing steadily as things are getting bigger and more content is being created and released. Please understand, I am not complaining.
A few examples of those operating costs are website domains, website hosting, audio hosting, video hosting, subscription based email services, computer software, online file storage services, new website plugins, website spam and email spam services, website plugins, website security, and website backups. Enough said, you get the point.
I spend 40 plus hours a week prepping, creating, editing, and publishing content via podcasts, videos, and blogs. That is in addition to working 40 plus hours a week at my normal job that pays me. I work long shifts at my regular job, so when I get days off they are usually 4 days in a row. I spend those 4 days “off” dedicating myself to keeping this content creation journey going.
Many things need to be done behind the scenes to create and get quality content out to you. Examples are podcast and video preparation, recording, editing, publishing, promoting and writing a blog for each. Website building, maintenance, and updating. Updating and interacting on social media platforms. Answering emails, website comments, video comments, and phone messages. Yah, I am working on sponsorship too. Bills, taxes, book-keeping, and all other small business requirements. Wheeeew!
