All Ages Geek is by geeks for geeks. For years, All Ages of Geek patrons on YouTube and Patreon have enjoyed hilariously loud but analytical reactions and reviews of cartoons, movies, and TV shows. Some customers consider All Ages of Geek a rare find, or a “gem” (as the sisters call certain underrated shows) because they’re being swamped by a wave of YouTube reactors, but are still battling the algorithm themselves.
As an LLC, All Ages of Geek has many responsibilities and struggles. Their entire business is funded by the crowdfunding website Patreon, which gives them the flexibility and freedom to design however they and their audience see fit.
“We still market our Patreon as a subscription-based platform where customers get over hundreds of videos a month.” Katya Stec mentioned this when discussing the logistics of All Ages of Geek’s Patreon. “We always shoot at a constant pace. Sometimes we don’t finish until 11pm or start at 3am. Anyway, we keep working. We’re not growing as fast as some reactors because of our niche content, but we don’t take shortcuts. »
This is one of the reasons All Ages of Geek, the subsidiary of Studio Stec, is now a Patreon Ambassador. Under the auspices of Patreon, the Creator Ambassador program brings together “creators of all kinds who are building amazing communities on Patreon.” The program team includes Jane Nadaraja and Travis Morningstar, two great Patreon contributors. This program allows creators to chat more closely with the Patreon team, receive advice on how to capitalize on the growth of the Patreon page, potentially collaborate with other creators, and get the best experience on Patreon as a creator.
All Ages of Geek became part of this ambassador program not only because of their website and growing community, but also because of their rarity on the internet. Let’s talk.
There are thousands of reaction channels on YouTube, from group reactions to solo, hundreds of thousands going viral overnight. While All Ages of Geek had hit reactions like their “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” reaction, which hit over a million views, or their “Esoteric” and “The Legend of Vox Machinas” reactions, which Offered a sea of support, It’s surprising that few people have spotted this duo.
So what makes All Ages of Geek different? A sister duo with opposite dynamics, Katya Stec and Tatiana Stec bring something different to the YouTube Reaction table. It’s just that they’re bringing a discussion to the table, as they call it, “bringing conversations back to the dinner table”. Despite not being seated at the table (although that would be a great reaction series) and doing most of the reactions from the comfort of their studio couch, the sisters are speaking to the audience, not them. They discuss unbiased opinions, keep discussions open and provide honest/genuine feedback. They also do very specialized reactions like Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, and 1980s anime reactions.
“We create content for anyone who needs a friend to watch shows with. Whether we’re laughing, crying or shocked by a big show reveal, we do it, we react so people who need a friend can enjoy shows with us like two crazy sisters on a couch!
All Ages of Geek has been on Patreon for years, providing interactive content to its audience. Content includes reactions to shows like Dragon Ball Z, Game of Thrones, One Piece and movies like Star Wars or cult classics like An American Werewolf in London.
“In 2021, Patreon approached us with the idea of becoming a Patreon Ambassador.” Tatiana Stec was happy to share her thoughts on her inclusion in the program. “It’s amazing that our hard work is finally paying off after so many years.”
All Ages of Geek uses its Patreon Ambassador status to interview other creators, share their stories, and find new ways to grow their audience. This form of community and “Geek Union” makes All Ages of Geek what it is today. Many reactors on YouTube have grown their Patreon pages to thousands of supporters overnight due to a preference for YouTube algorithms (as many have expressed in the past). All Ages of Geek is a channel that, while not affiliated with any reaction group circle, still strives to grow in support of its humble cause as a creator.
“There is a huge circle of reactors supporting each other and giving each other tips and tricks to beat the YouTube algorithm. It’s like that scene in Mean Girls or Kamen Rider Fourze when the main character goes into a cafeteria and sees all the cliques. We tried to adapt to them, but it never worked. Usually we were ignored or didn’t conform to the “norm” that these reactors had to join their group. It’s like high school, but we didn’t take shortcuts. You know how Mean Girls ends, right?
Expressing their gratitude to Patreon, Katya and Tatiana Stec said, “We were thrilled to hear that Patreon wanted us to be a part of their program. Not only do we get to know their team personally, but they have been very helpful in what we should do to improve our site in the best possible way. This program is a great way to learn more and build a great, supportive community. Our goal is to create a safe space for those who feel alone in the world, and Patreon helps us every day.
All Ages of Geek also has a Discord server where customers and non-customers can interact. Free Discord is a great way for the sister duo to interact with their audience, from polls, text chats and live events.
“Events have been suspended due to living conditions and the reorganization of roles in the community, but we hope to return later in the year with lots of positive vibes and energy.” Events are organized by Discord moderators and include games such as Among Us or GMod. Sometimes they are even hosted as random chats that gather viewers of all geek ages.
Patreon has brought the All Ages of Geek community together in ways they never imagined.
“It’s one of the reasons we’re so grateful to Patreon. They gave us our dream job, supported us all the way and helped us unite geeks of all ages.
