Tim Hirtle is creating a digital toolkit for knifemakers

Hi there, it’s Tim. And I’m some glad you stopped by. Here’s the entire deal:

MY SITUATION
I do marketing stuff for adventure travel companies, and that MIGHT seem like it has nothing to do with you. But you’d be wrong.

A while back I got into handmade knives and learned that knifemakers could use some help refining their websites. With a background in digital marketing AND an obsession for knives, I decided to pitch in.

Basically, I’m here to help knifemakers be more effective when marketing online.

THE FREE EMAIL LIST
Did you come here from knifemarketing.com? Then you may know I have an email list. Get on it.

Because it’s by email that I send my free training series.

SO… WHY PATREON?
It’s how you get the exclusive content I post here, specifically for knifemakers. And subscribing proves your support for all the trainings to come.

Once a week – I write a candid review of a knifemaker's website. This is where you learn to spot the things on a website that enable buyers to slip away.
Once a month – I create a premium template or training. This is the stuff that makes selling online easier and more lucrative.

WHAT I USE THE MONEY FOR

  • Hosting fees. Yearly web hosting isn’t expensive, but it’s certainly not free.
  • Web enhancements. I’m a one-man WordPress team, and as the website grows there’s always tech issues. Typically I get by with Google’s help, or with free plug-ins. But occasionally I need to pay for a more robust solution.
  • Me. While I wish it was, Knife Marketing isn’t my day job. I’m a freelance travel writer. Every hour I spend studying the knife market, is an hour I don’t get paid for. Your subscription is hugely helpful as it lets me look my wife in the eyes and be all man-proud about the money I’ve earned creating stuff for knifemakers.

KICKING IT UP A NOTCH
Man, right now my Patreon account is so young it’s still quivering in the quench tank. As it grows, I’ll be able to dedicate more time. My first stretch goal is 50 subscribers and when we hit that goal, I’ll open a Q&A exclusively for my Patrons.

Hitting that goal would be amazing, but simply being supported by your generosity makes me grateful, not matter what.

Anyways…
Thanks for any support you can offer and keep on making those beautiful blades.
