I hear you. One of the reasons I try and make it a soft approach to paid support "requests", and try and make it valuable for the premium supporter. It can be trial and error at times, seeing what works best and the language used.

From a supporter point of view, it's all about who really differentiates their content from similar creators and content. If it's something like "get a sticker", I'd rather support you via a shop where I can buy that and more of your merch. Instead, really exclusive stuff that I can't get elsewhere - that's where i'll support.
