The Creative Industry Database v0.2

The Creative Industry Database v0.2


You’ve been wasting so much time.

If you work in the creative industries, navigating the business side of things can be overwhelming.

Want to choose the right email service? Find a lawyer? Set up a legal entity? Find an accountant? Design your community funnel? Prepare your pitch? Structure a sponsorship? Design a media kit? Rebuild your site?

Where do you go? Who do you ask? Where do you start? Google?

Someone should’ve organized everything in a way that just made sense. We did.

Imagine this: A list of all the things you need to figure out. Guides from experts who speak simply. Templates for deals & pitches. A way to search for software based on what you actually need. And an organized list of professionals who can support you along the way, whether they practice law, finance, accounting, PR, marketing, or ops.

If you feel like you’ve been fumbling around in the dark, you’ve just found the lightswitch.

The Creative Industry Database is a curated set of answers, guides, lists, and templates that make it easier for you to navigate the business of creativity. Imagine Wirecutter and CAA had a baby.

We’ve been testing this out with creators over the last several months. Here are a few things they had to say:

“If my creativity was enough, I’d be swimming in success, but that’s not how it works. For my work to cut through the noise I have to train the business side of my brain. I couldn’t do that without this.” – A filmmaker

“I CAN’T EVEN BELIEVE IT. This is amazing.” – A podcaster

“I felt compelled to reach out and let you know that this is really a cut above. I'm sure this takes a long time to put together, and I wanted to let you know it's appreciated.” – A photographer

Sound helpful? Then share your details and we’ll let you know when we’re ready.

Want the best deal we’ll ever offer?

We plan to launch in Q2 2023.

Access to the basics will be available for free, but advanced elements will require payment.

For instance, a deal template will cost a fraction (e.g. $250) of what a lawyer would charge you to draft it ($1,500+).

Whatever the product, it will be priced to offer you a ridiculous amount of value at a very fair price.

But if you want the best deal we’ll ever offer + the earliest access to the platform, read on…

Your time is valuable. So is your brain. So is your data. We’d love for you to help inform & shape CIDB so it can be the best possible resource for creators.
