12 One to One Mentoring Sessions

12 Week Course

Your Own Membership Platform Website

What do I get?

Successful applicants receive a custom built Website Platform, 12 one-to-one Mentoring Sessions (via video call), and ongoing email contact with their mentor.

Website features can include a Content Porfolio, E-Commerce Shop, Marketing Engine, Booking Engine, Customer Manager, Fanbase Membership Area, Student Membership Area, E-Learning Hub, Email Marketing Software, Music Licensing Platform, and Project Manager.

Why would I want this over Instagram Subscriptions or Patreon?

Independence

'Traffic You Own'

Own Your List - highest ROI

Control Your Traffic - you can upsell, control customer journey, etc. (Insta and Patreon know the value of this, that's why they let your put your content on their platform)

 

The issue has always been that, by relying on Patreon for membership income, musicians put their own success into the hands of a corporation rather than themselves. This means that you’re subject to all of their Terms and Conditions, even if you don’t know exactly what they say, or don’t care to study legalese and want to hire a lawyer that does.

In recent years, Patreon has even been known to censor content or completely remove membership pages if they don’t feel the content fits their platform. When that happens, all of your paid members (and, potentially, a full-time living) can be deleted with very little warnin

Pricing - what does it cost?

The cost to run the programme is $2395 per Music Creator.

However, successful applicants will be offered a place on the programme free of charge, and will receive all website design and build services free.

Other applicants may be offered a discounted price of 50% or more. We are able to offer this kind of discount to most Music Creators who demonstrate they are serious about committing to the work required.

All applicants must cover the monthly fee of their website, which covers hosting, software, software maintenance, technical support by email, etc. Depending on the features required, the website monthly fees range from between £6 - £49. Of course, the aim is that you will be earning significantly more than this from your website.

What criteria are you looking for in applications?

This support is for professional Music Creators from any country, of all genres and disciplines. This includes Vocalists, Instrumentalists, DJs, Music Producers, Composers, Artists, Bands, and more.

We seek to build lasting relationships with Music Creators and we are particularly looking for those who aim to build a sustainable career and income from their music.

Applicants must:

  • be aged over 18
  • have a SoundSquares Music Creator Profile
  • demonstrate a high quality of musical output
  • demonstrate a high quality of content (video, images, articles, social media presence, etc)
  • have evidence of growing following
  • have control over one or more aspects of your career (e.g. self-managing, self-releasing or self-producing)
  • be able to invest at least 7 hours per week
