What is This Patreon Thing and 4 Reasons Why You Should Join
I know some of you are thinking “why are you soliciting my money for Patreon, what could be so tough about making a podcast”, or “podcasting sure looks like a fun hobby”, or specifically in our case, “isn’t it just 3 guys sitting around drinking and shooting the bull with your friends”.
After doing Business Over Beer for more than a year, I am here to tell there is way more that goes into producing a podcast that you may realize.
Mission The core mission of Business Over Beer is to create a community of small business owners helping each other to succeed together. This gives us a platform to bring people together in a fun a meaningful way.
Additionally, Patreon is a way for us to give back to the community. For example, in September, we are donating half our Patreon proceeds directly to the Clark County Historical Museum. In October, half our proceeds are being donated to local organizations to help fight Dementia and Alzheimer’s. Let us know what issues and organizations are important to you and we will see how Business Over Beer can support them in the future.
Podcast Production Costs
Additionally, the funds generated from Patreon allow us to offset some of the costs of producing the Business Over Beer podcast and to update our tools and technology so we can bring you the unique and entertaining content you want.
What’s in it for you?
For $7.50/month, you become an official member of The BOB Crew, one of the BCs, and you get your own personalized BC #.
Member Only Happy Hour
First, you can participate in our monthly Member Only Happy Hour. The Happy Hour is a virtual (for now) and interactive event with The BOB hosts and the other Members of The BOB Crew. Each month we have a special guest that you can ask questions of directly for tips to help your business. Also, you can ask questions of Ben, Jonathan and Knopp, make suggestions, or tell us what other types of content or benefits you might like as a BC Member or to help your business. Finally, we are a community of small business owners and small business leaders committed to supporting the each other and this is an opportunity to network with the other BCs in a relaxed and fun way. You never know who might be a resource to help your business. Exclusive Content
Also, as a member of The BOB Crew, you get access to exclusive to content, like deleted scenes, previously unreleased audio and video, and behind the scenes photos, audio and video.
Finally, you also get some “things”, like an autographed photo of The Hat, The Hair, and The Head, and a Biz Over Beer bottle Opener.

Small Business is the fabric of our local communities and drives our economy. By joining The BOB Crew, you are helping us to keep doing what we do and contributing to your fellow small business owners success. Also, it’s just a hell of a lot fun.
