For those of you interested in utilizing paid membership as a way to earn revenue with your forum and you need ideas, why not learn from the top paid sites on Patreon?

I have a Patreon. It's for my outdoor niche. I earn around $100 a month. If I took it further, I bet I could at least double or triple it. Maybe one day.

If you can mimic some of the features top Patreon players are using, I feel like it could help make your premium membership something special.

Maybe even take Patreon feature ideas for your regular membership too in case you're not that interested in making money.

What do you all think?
