Earn money with
your blog

What would it be like if you could live from what you most love doing?
Writing, music, blogging, open source coding, podcasting or video production? Steady brings you closer to your goal.
Steady activates your community to support you financially every month.
In our experience, about 5% of your community are willing to contribute. Steady helps your followers become supporters.
Steady is a complete system to create a campaign that motivates your community to give a small monthly payment.
Steady takes care of all the annoying details that money brings: correct invoices, taxation and dealing with payment providers. You don't have to pay anything – Steady simply retains 10% of the contributions (plus credit card and other transfer fees).

Your work has earned respect.
Now let it earn you money.

How does Steady work?

1
You create a project on Steady.
2
Describe yourself and your work.
3
Set a financial target for your first campaign – the amount you hope to receive each month. And explain exactly what you plan to do with the money – for example, publish two quality blog posts per week instead of one.
From the project page, your community can easily select a monthly contribution plan and enter their payment details via PayPal, credit card or bank transfer.
You can link to your project page from your own website, through social media or anywhere you connect with your audience.

Once a month Steady will send you money via bank transfer.

Steady's features help turn your audience into paying supporters

Steady Overlay

Promote your campaign directly on your website using the Steady Overlay. Show a button on your site, customize its colors and caption to draw attention to your Steady campaign.

Steady Paywall

Save your best content for paying subscribers. Just insert the ___STEADY_PAYWALL___ keyword anywhere in your post to hide the remaining content from your nonsubscribers.

Steady Adwall

More and more users use adblockers. The Steady adblock solution asks visitors blocking ads to support you on Steady instead.

Your dashboard

Stay in control of your supporters’ names and email addresses. Also, we will always keep them safe from prying eyes.

CSV export

You want to do special campaigns with your supporters? Download a csv file with your supporters’ names, email addresses, and subscription at anytime to send them targeted mailings and analyze your data.

Update your supporters

Keep your community updated using postings on your campaign page which are shown exclusively to your supporters.

Pricing

We only earn money if you do.
There's no risk you'll lose money.
Steady keeps a 10% commission from your contributions.
There are also fees for payment processing, such as credit cards, PayPal and bank transfers.

Crowdfunding made easy

Steady uses proven crowdfunding techniques for ongoing monthly contributions, not just one-off donations. And it eliminates hassle. There are no deadlines or goals to stop you receiving any contributions.

Transparency

You decide how much money you need, and what you'll do with it. These goals are visible on your project page, as well as details about your campaign success (for example, €850 from €1000).

Payment transactions

You don't need to set up accounts to receive bank transfers, PayPal or credit card payments – Steady handles it all.

Thank-you

It helps when you can offer your community a few extras. A newsletter with special content just for your supporters. A monthly Hangout, or a video where you personally thank them. It doesn't have to be big or material – it's the thought that counts.

Invoices

Don't worry about producing complicated EU-compliant invoices – Steady takes care of them for you.

Taxes

Different VAT levels for supporters in various countries – Steady deals with that, too.

We're here for you

Steady is a team of developers, designers, journalists and founders in Berlin. We're motivated by the belief that good content should be well rewarded. With Steady, we make it possible.
