How does Steady work?
You create a campaign page on Steady.
Describe yourself and your work.
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 campaign page, your community can easily select a monthly contribution plan and pay via PayPal, credit card or bank transfer.
You can link to your campaign 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.
