And then, you have to price yourself right. When on patreon, you need to:
1. Set up three or more pay tiers. The lowest tier should cost a dollar and give you basically nothing. The highest tier should be absolutely overpriced and give no real advantage over any other tier. This is because you want people to pick the middle tiers that cost $5-10 a month. The other tiers are just for contrast. This way it looks like you're not gouging people, but you really are.
2. At the higher tiers, sell "benefits" that are not benefits, such as the right to vote on the outcome. When you sell voting rights, each new customer devalues the voting power of the existing ones, so you're basically selling them nothing at all.
3. Sell WIPs, so you can make twice the money out of the same work. Live-stream yourself drawing - it's free for you and idiots will pay extra to watch you.
4. Compile your work and sell it outside of Patreon as well. Sell art packages, set up multiple online begging accounts such as on ko-fi.com. Never link them together, so people on one site don't see how much money you're pulling elsewhere.
5. Hide your Patreon income. If people could see how much other people are paying you already, and how little they actually get for it, they might be discouraged to pay you more.
