Support Open Mic Finder
Hi, I'm Martin and I built the first version of OMF back in January 2010. I have personally reviewed every set of event details and spent thousands of hours writing code to develop the website.
The adverts on this site hardly make any money. At time of writing they generated £12 last month which comes to an annual total that just about covers the cost of the domain name and hosting fees.
To try and make the site sustainable, I sought sponsorship. Sadly, the truth is that even though this website is the top performer on Google, capturing the majority of search traffic related to Open Mic Nights, the total volume of visitors is still too small for any brand to want to engage with. One major brewery I spoke with told me they wouldn't even consider advertising on any website with fewer than 200,000 unique visitors per month... this site gets a tenth of that!
So here I am, running a website that cannot be monetised, yet I haven't the heart to shut it down because it provides a central service to a community of performers and when it's gone, nothing will replace it.
If you would like to donate a few quid to thank me for my work, it would mean so much to me. Any amount is appreciated, from £1 to the price of a pint in your local. Tap the Donate button below to visit my PayPal donation page.
