I continue answering questions provided by Rie Sheridan Rose in today's episode where we focus on the best social media platform for artists, musicians, and writers and then we delve into why you should try Patreon.

Rie Sheridan Rose wrote: "I am doing a platform building challenge, and today's task is to interview an expert. You are the best marketing guy I know. Would you be willing to do an email interview--like ten questions--about marketing and Kickstarter in particular, because I may need to do some projects soon, and you always do so well. :)"

Here are the next two questions answered:

6) Which social media platforms do you recommend for artists? Is Twitter effective, or does Facebook provide better exposure?

7) You have been enjoying fair success on Patreon. Do you recommend it as a leg of an artist’s marketing plan? Does it work better if you already have an established fan base? How did you go about creating your tiers and rewards for this platform?
