Bringing back this tier as some members have asked to continue supporting this amount every month, which is so generous and welcome!

Crews
$70 per month
By choosing this tier, you are signing up for a group membership, which allows 10 to 15 readers to access Water & Music's knowledge- and community-based benefits in the $3/mo and $7/mo tiers via a single account for a discounted price. If multiple people within your company, educational institution or informal social group are interested in a Water & Music membership, this tier is the best one for you.

I will be administering these group memberships on a case-by-case basis. Please reach out to me directly at [email protected] so I can share more info on logistics and open up a slot on this tier to administer payment.

Clients
$200 per month
As a Client, you will receive all the benefits in the previous tier, PLUS the opportunity to do a bespoke, one-on-one consultation with Cherie for every month you are an active member.

During your consultation, Cherie will answer any specific questions you may have about your own startup/company/project/career, including but not limited to the following:
  • Latest trends in the music-tech market
  • Positioning within the wider music industry (e.g. who are your predecessors, competitors and potential complementors)
  • Overview of standard music and media business models, and how they affect you
  • Marketing, user-acquisition, PR-outreach and partnership strategy
  • Applications of higher-level business and tech frameworks

We'll touch on your priorities ahead of our consultation to ensure that you get the most value possible.

For now, this tier has EXTREMELY LIMITED SPOTS (max 15), as we are testing whether this consultation model can be effectively run through a platform like Patreon.
