The future for independent media and creative professionals

Steady enables us to support the projects we cannot do without, from independent media to podcasts, videos to open source code. Because good work deserves more than a like.

MembershipRevolution

[ mem-ber-ship rev-uh-loo-shuhn ] / movement

Memberships are the key to a media landscape filled with diverse, independent voices. Members offer sustainable support for projects and personalities, not because they have to, but because they want to. Members are more loyal and committed than subscribers. And members liberate media. Join the membership revolution!

Get your first member signed up today. It will change everything.

You have the community

Your community loves you for the work you do. You’d be surprised how many people want to support you.

You have the freedom

Memberships give you the freedom to do what you love and the means to make it even better. Of course, you retain the rights to your content.

Don't put it off

There are only 3 steps separating you from your first member. All you need to do is get started.

The experience of hundreds of projects

We’re independent publishers ourselves. That's why we built Steady. Everything we’ve learned about memberships we share with you.

Our publishers speak for themselves

“After spending months preparing our campaign, nothing on the market made more sense for us. The team is helpful and always around for support and good advice.”

Stefan Mako
Founder of Inclusiv

“Steady is extremely user-friendly, both for potential supporters and publishers themselves. On top of that, the level of personal support was fantastic.”

Moritz Tschermak
BILDblog

“I spent weeks researching and found that Steady was the best solution… It feels like Steady just keeps growing, as there’s always something happening and it gets faster all the time. I’d say that’s the Steady effect.”

Katrin Rönicke
Wochendämmerung

Your project is the star, not Steady

We won't steal your members’ eyeballs and drive them to our own website. On the contrary: We offer seamless integration into your own project. Steady stays in the background.
