Hello everyone! Most of you that will arrive here already know me, Gary, as the guy who has been making MacMost video tutorials for more than 10 years now. Obviously, I enjoy making them and helping people get the most from their Macs!

THE STORY SO FAR...
Over the past decade I've created more then 1,300 tutorials. To give you an idea of how many that is, if I wanted to make that into a DVD box set, it would need to be put on more than 55 DVDs! Most of the videos are how-to tutorials, teaching you how to get something done on your Mac, iPad or iPhone. I like helping people in this way -- teaching "how to" instead of being more like technical support, something that Apple covers nicely with the Genius Bar anyway.

CHANGING DIRECTION
All this time, MacMost has paid its bills mostly from the ads on the pages. But that revenue has been dwindling over the years. Plus, the ads seem to get worse and worse. If using Patreon brings in enough revenue, I would love to get rid of those ads! Plus, then I would feel like I really am making the videos for YOU, the audience, since MacMost would be audience-supported. It would be wonderful for MacMost to be supported completely from Patreon and educational materials like courses and books.

REWARDS FOR SUPPORTERS!
So you'll notice that starting with the $5 reward, everyone becomes a member of what I am calling "Club MacMost" -- just my fun name for the group that will consist of me plus MacMost's best supporters. I'll be posting to that group some special things. I'm sure it will evolve over time, but I was thinking that these would be short off the cuff videos and posts about various Apple-related topics. Maybe a tip or trick that I discovered, or how I feel about a recent piece of Apple news or a rumor. I could see posting interesting photos or videos I have taken with my iPhone and which effect or app I used. Maybe I'll even mention some apps, services or other Apple-things that I use or like. It will be more personal than the regular MacMost videos. As a small community-within-a-community, Club MacMost will change over time with suggestions from members and as we interact with each other.

THANKS, BUT NO THANKS
So what about if you don't want to contribute, are unable to support MacMost, or just don't like this Patreon model? Well, my plan is to keep MacMost pretty much what it is right now. I'll still post the regular tutorial videos to the site, and I'll still send out the newsletter for free. You don't have to contribute. I know things like Patreon aren't for everyone.

OR, JUST GIVE IT A TRY
It is easy to start with Patreon, and it is also easy to cancel. I welcome you to try out the $5 "Club MacMost" level and then I promise you won't hurt my feelings if you decide to cancel later on. In fact, I'd appreciate your feedback.

ONWARD, TO THE FUTURE!
I'm very excited about this. I envision a future where I can make videos and post content to MacMost knowing that my viewers are supporting me, not ads from large corporations that don't even know that MacMost exists. Here's to the future of MacMost!

Club MacMost will be an online group here at Patreon with myself (Gary) and MacMost's top supporters. I plan to make special short videos and posts for club members. These won't be like the tutorials at MacMost.com, but will be off the cuff tips, tricks, opinions, reviews and whatever else is on my mind. I'll only post these here, you won't find them at MacMost.com.

Goals
$1,246 of $1,600 per month
I will update the 101 Mac Tips book and make it free for everyone! My book from early 2016 was a great success, but I'd like to make the next edition an even bigger success. When this goal is hit, I'll update it for macOS High Sierra and then release the new edition as a PDF for free!
