It may come as a surprise to some of you – especially given the content we already put out – but we’re all part-time. But we love what we do, and we want to do more of it, perhaps even one day we can make GodisaGeek our day job!
But it costs money to be where we are, and a part of this industry. The access we have is terrific, but we’re not all from London and that’s where it all happens.
We already run the site on little to no adverts, but your support means we can be self-sustainable for the long-term future. People always tell us how much they like our site and what we’re doing, so we’re asking for help to enable us to go further, be better, and do more.
The thing is, even a single dollar or pound helps us massively. If everyone who watched, read, or listened to our content gave that much, we’d easily make enough for a couple of full-timers, and maybe more. But just sharing our content, subscribing to our YouTube channel or Podcast helps, as does leaving a comment, even if it’s a silly throwaway one. Please, don’t be the person who thinks “someone else will do it”, and the reason we’re reaching out to our audience is that we are approaching a level we cannot sustain for the long term.
We like doing stupid stuff to go with the serious stuff, and the funding we’ve had via this Patreon literally funded the equipment and transport costs to make it all happen.
We want to give backers an extra insight into the things that go on behind the scenes, so from time to time we want to bring you exclusive videos and live streams, more podcasts, longer podcasts – exclusive content.
It’s easy to say “we need your help”, and it’s even easier to just hope people will back us. But we believe in what we’re doing, and we think if you give us a chance, you will too. We want to be the best video game website we can be, and with your help, that’s easily within our reach. People say they want honest reviews, we give you that – and we’re being honest here: we need your help.
