Our mission is to help you turn the followers you are already creating for into monthly subscribers. Create and experience, build a community, and get paid for doing it.
Subscriptions are Sustainable
You need to utilize premium, gated content if you want to fully monetize your content. Makerstreamer is here to help you do that.
You're Already Marketing Yourself.
Chances are if you are looking for a service like Makerstreamer, you have an established, loyal following. History shows us that you can expect between 1% and 5% of your followers to pay a subscription to view your premium content. That means, if you have 10,000 followers on Instagram, you can expect to earn between $1,500 and $7,500 per month using a subscription model. You can boost that number with our integrated shop.
You're already creating content.
If you have a following on any social media platform, you are already creating content that people love. It makes sense to turn that content into revenue. Premium content is once of the best ways for modern creatives to make money, completely online. There are many ways you can utilize the content you are already creating and monetize it. Are you a DIY Youtuber that makes amazing thing in your garage? Sell the how to process to your monthly subscribers, and sell the plans and blueprints in your shop. Are you a photographer with a lot of beginners following you for inspiration? Give them access to virtual workshops, BTS videos, and sell presets in your shop. Makerstreamer allows you to create a one stop shop for people who are inspired by what you do.
Other Platforms Take More Than Their Fair Share
We are committed to the idea that we should only succeed when you do. That is why, rather than charging you a set up fee, or a monthly rate, we take a small percentage of every transaction on your site. This means you don't have to worry about selling a certain amount to break even. You don't need to have a certain number of followers committed to subscribe before you build your site. You won't be charged until you sell something, which means less worry for you.
As mentioned earlier in this article, the opportunity for offering premium, gated content to your followers is a huge opportunity. Makerstreamer allows you to post video content, and even stream live video for paying subscribers. You can capitalize on content you are already creating, such as offering tutorial videos, or you can create something entirely different, like a-day-in-the-life videos.
We know the value of being able to sell physical merch to your followers. They get something the love from someone they admire, and you get some advertising. Sell merch in your very own integrated shop. Integration means that you can use subscriptions and shop sales together to grow your audience. Use discounts in the shop to incentivise subscription sign ups. The possibilities are endless!
Makerstreamer has taken all of the great qualities of the social media platforms we love and packed them into an integrated community thread for your website. Your followers can engage with each other, post projects (such as their version of your DIY how-toos) and you can engage with them utilizing our clean and organized platform.
Take Control of Monetization
You will always have full access to your follower's information. We believe that if you have great content outside of your Makerstream site, such as a book or podcast, you should be able to tell your followers about it.
