We've Devalued Knowledge and Entertainment

We've Devalued Knowledge and Entertainment

Geraint Clarke

I had around 50,000 free readers per month on my Medium blog. I transitioned to this paid blog and 99.8% of those readers chose not to pay.

At $2 per month, it's not that my product is overvalued, it's that knowledge and entertainment have been devalued.

Here's another example...

The Buttery Bros have 149,000 subscribers on YouTube, but only 2801 paying Patreon members.

Over 98% of their fans choose not to pay.

People want everything for free.
