InPlayer vs. Patreon: Why InPlayer Is Better.

Dec 06, 2021 | By InPlayer

Patreon, Substack and other content creation membership platforms are all the rage right now – and with good reason. They can help a writer, artist or influencer not only build a following, but also monetize those supporters in a way that makes practicing a craft and exploring one’s creativity a potentially sustainable business model.

But what if there were a better way? What if a creator didn’t have to accept chunks of their subscription income being indefinitely paid to a third party? What if they could be certain they would maintain full rights to their content? What if they never had to worry about their platform of choice changing their terms and conditions, or disappearing altogether? There is a way.

InPlayer is a pay-per-view management platform that provides the flexibility to build a subscription site that can be virtually anything a creator wants or needs it to be for their members – all with full control over terms, rates and revenue. Because it features native landing-page-creation functionality, creators can quickly build an open-source website with no code, downloads or additional tools. It’s flexible, fully functional and free from any strings attached. No third parties. No surprises. It’s a platform that offers the ability to take full ownership of your business.

What InPlayer offers creators is control. Control over your preferred choice in software. Control over integrations, add-ons and perks for your subscribers. Control over costs and income. Whereas a third-party membership platform such as Patreon comes accompanied by additional fees (costing a creator as much as 15 percent of revenue), InPlayer helps you better manage – and most likely reduce – costs.

Moreover, InPlayer puts the creator in the driver’s seat. Own your content, control your platform, make your own rules. You can migrate existing content to your new site and even take advantage of social media, other content platforms (such as Medium) and – yes, if you choose – Patreon. But with InPlayer, a creator doesn’t have to be beholden to any of them.

And with InPlayer, you aren’t giving up opportunities you might otherwise seize on other platforms. You don’t have to choose. Deliver your subscribers high-quality content, generate predictable and sustainable revenue, and build a business model independent of ads, sponsors and supporting brands – just as you would on another subscription platform. Your audience needn’t be broad or have deep pockets. You can build a business by cultivating a community that is fervently interested in your unique content and doggedly supportive of helping sustain your work.

Finally, with InPlayer you own your data. With full access to subscriber consumption habits, a creator has the ability to respond immediately to emerging trends and market forces. You’ll see the big picture and, more importantly, have the power to allocate resources in a way that optimizes your content and best serves your audience.

Subscription management platforms should work for a content creator – not the other way around. InPlayer isn’t the only option for creators. But when it offers open-source flexibility, maximum earning power and complete control over your operations, it just might feel that way.
