Hello and welcome to our creator application area!
We have tried to provide a lot of answers here to the more common questions, but if there is something more you need to know please reach out to any of the directors. We would be glad to answer any questions you may have.

How do I get involved with Nerdsmith?
We are always looking for talented and/or passionate individuals who want to come on board to help out or bring their show to the network.
Step one is to go to the bottom of this page and click the button to put in an application. Choose the best option for you:
An Existing Show or Brand
This option is for people who want to bring their show or brand onto the network
A New Show Concept
This option is for people who have a concept for a show, but are looking for a little help getting the ball rolling. We can help get them connected to others who are looking to do the same as well as our Contributor network of artists, V/O artists, and other talented individuals.
My Skills and Passion
This option is for those who don’t have a show (or don’t want to be on one) but still want to help
I already have a patreon/ko-fi/dippidydoo
With that said, we do ask that during our Subscription Drive (two weeks in April) that you refrain from promoting your other revenue streams in favor of Nerdsmith.
What am I required to do as a Creator?
We have a few other minor requirements such as sending us show numbers each month so we can track our progress, mentioning Nerdsmith during each of your shows, advertising for other shows on the network if they fit with your format and theme, and that you create special ‘Bonus Content’ twice a year as a thank you to our subscribers and donors.
What does Nerdsmith offer to their Creators?
Many times Creators will work together on projects to achieve more, or trade skills or services.
How much does Nerdsmith cost Creators?
How does Nerdsmith monetize Creator content?
We also will work with you to create merchandise and get advertisers, but as we are still a fledgling network, these will be more down-the-road options
