The Future for Strong Voices
Offering memberships means allowing your listeners to support you. You’ll deepen your connection to them, gain independence – and receive a sustainable income
Why Memberships and Podcasting Are a Match Made in Heaven
You keep your listeners informed, inspired and entertained. And they want to thank you for it. Steady makes it easy to set up a membership program, enabling your listeners to contribute a small amount every single month.
Memberships give you the freedom to do what you love and the means to make it even better.
Engage your listeners
Your members are your most engaged listeners. They want to see you succeed. With Steady, you can identify those listeners and talk to them directly.
Don’t rely on ads or algorithmic despotism. Take control of your revenue sources, so you can maintain your independent voice.
Don’t put it off
Yes, your work is worth it
Plenty of Steady publishers were hesitant to ask their fans for support at first – but now they’re beyond happy they did it.
It only takes ten minutes
Many successful Steady publishers put off getting started. So they were very surprised to find that the setup takes just ten minutes.
37% of Steady’s top 50 publishers don’t offer any additional benefits. Their community simply wants to support them. Anything extra is a bonus.
“When I started thinking about my own podcast, financing was important to me. I didn’t want to podcast myself into bankruptcy with ‘Halbe Katoffl’. Developing a business model was not my primary goal, but a necessary part of keeping the project alive in the long-run. The fascinating thing about the membership model: It works.”
