Today we're talking to musician, creator, but most relevantly CEO of Patreon, Jack Conte. We're going to talk about some of the most successful and innovative campaigns he's seen on Patreon lately, whether he sees paid membership features from Facebook and YouTube as a threat, how Patreon and he, as the CEO, handled their misstesps half a year ago, how we are all being expected to be able to handle negative public discourse about us, and also how he manages to run a big ol' company with 170 employees and still make videos and music. So excited to share this one with you!
Jack Conte is the CEO of Patreon, and thus, probably doesn't need that much of an introduction. In this episode, Jack and Hank discuss some difficult topics, including content policy enforcement, how to be (or not be) a sociopathic CEO, what Patreon's competitive advantage is, how to create cultural change from the free web to the paid web, and what is the secret ingredient to creator success on Patreon.
