Q: What is Dreampatron?
A: Dreampatron is a grassroots crowd funding platform that is 100% focused on helping hard-working, blue collar artists.
Q: I’m an artist…how does Dreampatron work?
A: Easy! You sign up for FREE at www.dreampatron.com/artist_signup. Once you do, you’ll get an authorization email sent to you enabling you to activate your account and to create your Dreampatron page in a few, simple steps. In 24-48 hours your page will be live (after we approve your rewards to make sure they are legal and/or appropriate) and you can launch your Dreampatron campaign to your fans.
Q: I’m a fan…what do I do?
A: When a band you love sends you’re their Dreampatron artist page, simply choose a monthly package that works for you. By supporting your favorite artist, you are enabling them to continue to write, tour and record…basically to keep on being an artist that you can enjoy! Once you click on a package, you securely enter your payment information and VOILA…you become a Dreampatron! An official member of the band’s team! You’ll get a username and a password for exclusive access to the artist’s “Backstage Page.” Here is where you’ll log-in to receive your monthly rewards.
Q: Do I have to re-sign up each month?
A: Nope! To borrow a tagline from one of those “Seen on TV” infomercials, you simply set it and forget it! Sign-up once and you each month you’ll be automatically billed for $5, $10 or whatever monthly amount you choose.
Q: What if I change my mind or if the band breaks up?
A: You can cancel at any time. No strings attached! Just log-in, go to your settings page and unsubscribe there.
Q: What is the money artists’ collect used for?
A: Good question. Unlike other crowd funding platforms that limit artists to a specific project (ie funding an album or a video), we allow the artists to use the money in any way they need. It’s tough out there on the road and no matter how well bands make budgets before a tour, sh*t happens! Transmissions fall out, trailers are broken into, amps blow out…this is the life of a touring musician. Dreampatron funds can be used for any and all unexpected expenses, in addition to the aforementioned albums and other life necessities like health insurance.
Q: I’m an artist…how do I put my music and stuff on my artist page for subscribers?
A: It’s easy! First we’ll explain how/where you need to post stuff…then we’ll go through how to specifically post music and videos from various sources.
