Patron, Benefits for all
Currently the word influencer is a term that is often heard and many are taking more importance, which is the right thing, since they are responsible for what society sees today. The consumption of other media has fallen with respect to social networks, this is how this has become a job, for them content creators seek benefits from it. It is important to mention that each creator has a specific public according to the topics he deals with or the information he manages in his social networks. Some people are not aware of how everyone currently manages social networks, through sponsorship and advertising, in this way the influencers can obtain financial benefits for their services. As it has been exposed since not everyone handles the same public, it is logical that they can not advertise the same things, or maybe if it is possible but it will not have the expected result on the part of the sponsoring agent.
The benefits offered by Patron are very noticeable, because the influencers will count within the platform with a categorization and a valuation, that valuation is given regarding 3 factors already mentioned (Numbers, Commitment and reputation) on the other hand the influencers will be within a category because in this way the connection with the sponsoring company will be much more accurate and not randomly given as many cases in which the advertising agreement results in a disaster due to the fact that the public does not agree with the product.
In short, but the benefits of Patron for the influencers go further as they are based on a shared economy with high security in the chain of blocks, also gives the opportunity to anonymously search for the best job offer, and with contracts They can establish the most convenient work period, counting with a secure payment.
From the point of view of business it is very beneficial to use a tool that helps to choose the right influencer for advertising, since many times the company does not know the content handled by the influencer is guided by the numbers of followers, with the belief that the more senior followers will be their sales, this is absolutly false, since the number does not turn into sales unless it is focused on an adequate public interested in the product in question.
This is how Patron gives companies the benefit of accessing the right influencer, guaranteeing higher sales due to being demographically categorized and facing the public that is interested in the types of products it offers.
It is important to mention that both the influencer, the company and the followers will feel more comfortable with the advertising that is handled as it would go, thanks to the demographic categories, according to the type of content created and the audience that it takes. Patron is a win win, for all involved since the platform is responsible for connecting everything that has interests in common.

Use case 1
Luna is a content creator, she has several social networks, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and her main one, YouTube, is therefore not on the rise with a high number of followers like celebrities, but she tries to take her users a quality content. Its channel focuses on reviews of books, movies and series, with a public between 16 and 25 years of age. Several highly paid advertising proposals have been sent to your email, but none of them are focused on their content, so it would be uncomfortable to show those products. Tired of not being able to obtain that income, she began to investigate and that is how she found the solution to her problems, Patron, this platform shortly after joining her, she contacted a publisher that wanted to promote books for young people, as well as articles related to her characters, That publicity was something that was completely in line with Luna and her social networks. So it became a relief and a steady job all with the help of Patron.
