I ask for your support

I have been wondering about the best way that I can ask for support from people who receive benefit from all the stuff I create for free like this blog, my YouTube channel, the Need to Know podcast and more. Of course there are my publications as well as my online courses but they may not appeal to everyone.

What I have therefore created is a patron page at:

https://www.patreon.com/ciaops

on which you’ll find the following support levels (per month)

$2 per month- pledge two dollars a month as a way of saying "I want to support you and help you focus on creating more content". Backers at this level get the rights to say to friends "I supported CIAOPS and what they do."

$10 per month - Pledge ten dollars a month and you'll receive access to my restricted Facebook support group that will answer your questions on Office 365, Azure and other Microsoft cloud technologies. You'll get 25% discount off any one of my online courses per month. You'll get access to the monthly recorded support webinar. You'll get 50% discount off any one of my existing paid publications.

$50 per month - Pledge fifty dollars a month and you'll receive access to my restricted Facebook support group that will answer your questions on Office 365, Azure and other Microsoft Cloud technologies. You'll get 50% discount off an one of my online courses per month. You'll receive an invite to attend live my monthly support webinar that will answer questions and demonstrate Microsoft cloud technologies as well as receive access to the recording. You'll also receive free access to all my existing paid publications and any new paid publications I create.

$100 per month - Pledge one hundred dollars a month and you'll receive access to my restricted Facebook support group that will answer your questions on Office 365, Azure and other Microsoft Cloud technologies. You'll get 80% discount off an one of my online courses per month. You'll receive an invite to attend live my monthly support webinar that will answer questions and demonstrate Microsoft cloud technologies as well as receive access to the recording. You'll also receive free access to all my existing paid publications and any new paid publications I create. You will also receive a monthly one on one remote consulting session for training or problem solving.

My aim is to hopefully get enough regular monthly income so I can focus a good part of my time on creating more and deeper content for people. I am really keen to take a lot of the stuff that I do to the next level but to do so I need some funding to allow me to pay the bills while I focus on creating content.

So, if you like the stuff that I do then I’d really appreciate your patronage at any level. Every little bit helps.

Thank you.
