When I tell people about Rebellious, the one question I get the most, and the one question that I am most shocked by, is some variation of: “Oh, are you making any money with that? Is that enough to live on? That’s like, your job?”
And I’m always shocked! So shocked, every time, that I never have a good answer.
Now, when someone asks me “Oh, are you making any money?” I’m going to say: “Not yet! But here’s how you can help with that!”
Let me just walk you quickly through your options:
M: Memberships: There are two ways to become a member of Rebellious Magazine for Women. On our site, click Support Us and choose one of the seven annual membership options. If you’d prefer to give every month as a sustaining member, we’re on a support site for creatives called Patreon. (See below for the video of me on our Patreon profile page. Good times.)
A: Advertising/Affiliates: If you’re a small business owner or influencer at your company and you’d like to reach our audience of smart, engaged feminists, consider a digital ad. If you know of a great affiliate program we should be a part of, let us know.
M: Merchandise: We have a new shop on Threadless.com! Threadless is local, their prices are reasonable, their selection is varied, and we receive a larger percentage of any purchases. In addition to Ts, sweatshirts & hoodies, we now have weekender bags, notebooks & more.
E: Events: Our next event is the Feminist Prom Fundraiser on May 20 at Catalyst Ranch. Early-bird tickets are available now through March 31.
S: Sponsorships: Most of us think of sponsorships in terms of corporations. And while we’re always looking for those, we’re also open to individuals as sponsors. If there is a feature or column in Rebellious that you love and want to support, you can become a sponsor of that content for one month or an entire year. You can learn more about our Sponsorship options here.
So there you have it! Thank you for helping us stay Rebellious.
