Why open an account also on “Buy me a coffee”?
The interface is very similar to that of Patreon and Ko-fi, simple and intuitive, like any home page, there is the profile picture and the cover that are the focus of attention and the various sections such as Home, Posts, Membership.
Then there is the description section that in my opinion is much more effective than that of Patreon that puts first the levels of enrollment and does not allow the user to understand before what he is donating, so level up for BuyMeACoffee!
On the right is the tab with the possibility of making a monthly / annual membership, with all the benefits for those who make it, another level up because to make the annual Patreon must be a little VIP, the difference at the time is also that BuyMeACoffee allows you to create a single membership and instead Patreon different levels. But I do not see a bad idea to put a fixed price!
And then I think the strong point of BuyMeACoffee, the spontaneous donation, the ability to donate without registering and instantly, this feature I think is the most effective, because it allows you to receive tips without having to register and with a lot of freedom.
Buy me a coffee, has similar potential to Patreon, but also allows us to take advantage of spontaneous donations without having to face a monthly membership, this obviously makes the donation process more adaptable for everyone.
Another great feature is to be able to give away the Membership and surprise, we decided to give away the membership to all those who are already our Patrons, and who are enrolled at a level of 5€ + on our profile Patreon, so they will benefit from two platforms with a single payment, of course remaining enrolled in Patreon.
What does a Membership include?
For now everything you see in the screenshot above, so, the new Monthly Live Webinars, Free download of digital content, Digital Magazines, access to the Discord community, emails of new publications and the name of the donor in the thanks.
But let’s not rule out the idea that this Membership plan could become even more advantageous, unlike what we offer on Patreon, here we have the opportunity to take advantage of a subscription that allows us to accomplish much more interesting things!
We have set ourselves a first goal! We hope to reach it soon with your help, because there will be many other goals to achieve!
The posts are easy to write, there’s also the option to create albums and we already have a few ideas in mind, so you’ll soon see what’s new!
But we decided to continue to use it even though we are now welcoming you here too!
Obviously what comes out here will have a different exclusivity to what comes out on Patreon, the reason is that on Patreon there are multiple levels of donation, here instead only one monthly/annual Membership and the possibility of spontaneous donations.
Every Monday the BerlinExplorer team meets for meetings and brainstorms, so we have the possibility to structure a special program for this new platform.
What we ask you to do to make the experience as personal as possible is to fill out this questionnaire, so we can better understand what kind of content you want to receive and see: https://forms.gle/sk3bmCbmBnFoj1TFA
A new activity we want to add here through this platform is the Monthly Live Webinar, a meeting with you all and us on the team to discuss various ideas and experiences.
So anyone who becomes a member every month gets a chance to say their idea live and get in touch with us directly.
It must be said that BerlinExplorer is a project that is constantly evolving, trying to grow in a constant way and with ideas that are always being tested.
We hope you appreciate our efforts and we are sure that with your help we will be able to create more and more impressive content!
