Support The Honest Guys
People have become used to YouTube being free to use, and of course the videos are free to upload and watch, but they’re not free to make. Behind the scenes there is a huge amount of time, effort and money involved in the creation of our productions.
Until now we have managed to balance the books through advertising revenue, however it is not consistent and as you may have already heard from other channels, the term "Adpocalypse" where the ad revenue is drying up for lots of different reasons.
We get it! we appreciate ads are a pain to have to sit through and we understand why people skip them and why more and more folks are using ad blockers, but unfortunately this only compounds the problem.
Over the last few years events have compelled us to start looking at how we can keep our material freely available on YouTube to continue to help the most vulnerable people, but still keep things viable for the longer term.
We have often been asked over the years if we have a Patreon account so that people could support us. We do have a donation button and we’re always very grateful for anything we receive. We also recommend people to buy our albums, that way they get to support us, but also get value for money by getting something back.

We've been asked by YouTube to take part in a new sponsorship beta program. The program offers those who have expressed interest in helping support the channel, the opportunity to do so.
If you’ve ever been helped by our videos, and are in a position to do so, sponsorship is a great opportunity to help us sustain future creations, whilst earning sponsor-only perks.
Just click the “sponsor” button (next to the subscribe button on our channel page) and follow the on-screen prompts.

As the program is in beta right now it will continue to be developed with the feedback we provide. We believe it's something that will be a huge help to sustaining creators on the platform into the future.
Thanks for your support.
