Reynolds Journalism Institute’s Futures Lab takes a look at the basics of Patreon, Kickstarter and Indiegogo in this video to compare and contrast crowdfunding platforms.

Their recommendation: Go with Kickstarter if you’re just getting started or want to do a one-time project. Go with Patreon if you already have an audience and want a steady source of revenue.
