AIN'T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH.
Connecting. Collaborating. Creating. Championing. After over a decade in the music industry, including full-time roles with Pearl Jam and Cat Stevens, I founded The Band Strategist to pursue my passion for supporting independent artists.
LIKE THE CEILING CAN'T HOLD US.
In the past year, I've had the privilege of working one-on-one with artists, helping them develop and execute effective digital marketing campaigns. I've seen firsthand the impact that targeted marketing efforts can have on a musician’s career. Now, I'm eager to help even more artists!
I'm launching this campaign to raise funds to improve my services and expand my offerings through online courses and digital products like release checklists, content calendars, social media guides, and more! These resources will allow me to reach a broader audience of independent musicians and provide them with the tools needed to succeed in today's digital landscape.
RUNNIN' DOWN A DREAM.
I bootstrapped my business with a DIY approach. Where I would’ve liked to have hired consultants, I bought books. Where I would’ve liked to have hired a professional designer, I bought templates. In my first year of running The Band Strategist, I invested over $6,500 of my personal funds in startup costs alone. This has included expenses such as business licenses, incorporation fees, website domain and registration, logo design, software subscriptions, marketing materials, and professional development courses.
As a small business owner, I understand the importance of smart financial management and ensuring that every dollar spent is a wise investment.
