Steady for Activists and Critical Voices


For a Good Cause – With Memberships

A membership program gives you the opportunity to advance your cause with a dedicated community by your side. Your members support you because they share your values and believe in your movement.

Reasons for Going Steady

You have the freedom: Work independent of advertising revenue and the fight for reach! Steady opens up an additional source of income, making you less reliant on advertising partners and enabling you to communicate directly with your members.

No ups and downs: You earn reliable, recurring revenue because your members are loyal and engaged. We’ll send you a detailed account summary every month, giving you the stability you need to plan ahead.

Your members trust you: A membership program helps build deeper connections between you and your community. You give the people who appreciate your work the chance to support you with money, time, expertise or ideas. This forges stronger bonds and builds trust.

Making a Difference Together

Memberships are for everyone who cares about something important. Members support projects and personalities because they want to help do good. Thanks to their support, you get the financial security and freedom you need to dedicate yourself fully to your content and cause. Members give you the support you need to make a difference.
