What is BandTools?

BandTools is a podcast and online resource that discovers the best online tools for bands & musicians, whilst providing helpful hints & tips for DIY band management & marketing along the way.

The weekly podcast covers a different tool every week, explaining what it is, how it works for bands, how to use it, and tips on using it effectively. 

The website is an online musician resource in the making. There are recommendations throughout the site on all sorts of band-related tools, but the highlight is the package that has a pre-made set of folders to allow for easy DIY band management. Each folder contains templates, examples and instructions on every aspect of running your own band. This package has been free until now, but is has received a major overhaul and this is where the Patreon campaign comes in...



Why is BandTools on Patreon?


First things first, you don't owe me anything. I am thrilled to hear people are enjoying the show and never expected so much interest, but I started it as a passion and will continue to do so. People have contacted me asking how they can support the show, how they can get coaching, how they can contribute.. It's all a bit messy on the website and hard for me to suggest anything solid, but now I can direct them to something that is easy. 

To go a bit further, here are a few more reasons behind it;

Confirmation of interest - If people are subscribing, then I know you are enjoying the content and I will continue to be motivated to make the best resource that I can!

Money - My day job allows me to pay for a computer, gear, website, hosting, podcast, and all that stuff.. But with a bit of extra coin I can make the website WAY better and podcast WAY better. Premium website themes, nicer sounding audio gear, stuff like that.

Promotion - I want to reach more people with BandTools. Online advertising will benefit to find the musicians out there who have the potential to succeed but just need a bit of help.

Merch - I want to keep giving away free t-shirts to people who call in to the show!

Worth - The stuff I have put together in this BandTools database is 10+ years of work rolled into one pretty package. As much as I love giving it away for free, I just feel like i'm selling myself short. A few bucks a month would be super rewarding.

Test dummy - The whole concept of BandTools is about trying online resources for musicians and providing quality info to make their life easier. I want to give Patreon a shot and let you know what it's like. If it fails, we'll analyse the reasons why!


F.A.Q

Q: Can I cancel or modify my subscription anytime?
A: Absolutely. Your support is hugely appreciated regardless of the duration.

Q: Will I be charged if you are not releasing episodes.
A: No way. That's why I like the idea of PER CREATION rather than monthly. I don't want payments if i'm not releasing episodes.

Q: I can't afford to pay for every episode, can I cap my monthly spend?
A: I'm told that you can. If you have any issues during check out just let me know.

Goals
$14 of $50 per weekly podcast episode
This goal covers the necessary costs of running the podcast and upkeep of the website. Extra subscriptions will allows BandTools to test out different platforms, therefore creating more quality episodes with info on tools to save you time.

The website could also do with a lot of work. With any spare money I will invest in learning how to create a more user-friendly and appealing resource site for you.

With a steady cash flow I can increase the amount of giveaways for listener contributions too ;)
