There are a ton of ways to monetize your work online if you’re looking to do that, but getting support to create that stuff in the first place is still somewhat fraught.
Patreon tends to be the go-to service for a lot of people but Behance is hoping to change that with their new service that offers audiences the chance to subscribe to and support their favorite content creators.
Like Patreon, subscribers can get access to special content uploaded to Behance by creators. Contributors can also determine their own subscription rate. Interestingly, creators cannot change the amount they charge for subscriptions after setting it. Behance offers amounts of $USD 1 to 100 as examples of how much creators could possibly charge but notes that most subscriptions will be in the $USD 5 to 10 range.
In terms of content allowed on Behance, they outline that anything that follows the broadly defined Behance Community Guidelines is acceptable.
So far they’ve launched with a limited number of creators in a beta trial of how everything works. You can check out some of the names they have on their roster here at this link.
If you’re a Behance user or you would like to know more about the service, you can check it out here at the FAQs.
And if you meet that criteria, you can also sign up to be a part of this test offering here at this link.
