Today, I’m joined by a great group of guys who have been working on a fantastic project called Crowdmouth.

Crowdmouth is a social media plug-in that any creator can use to harness their engagement and reward their fans for spreading the word about them.

They’ve created a system that allows you to get points for sharing an artist’s content, and you can build those points up and use them to get free merch.

The founders are Bob Schnieder’s manager Aston Teague, the lead singer of Jamestown Revival Jonathan Clay, and the tech genius Donnie Gerault.

This podcast is about fan interaction, what this has looked like in the past, and how it’s being innovated today.

We talk about the app, how it works, where it’s going, and how you can use it to get a bunch of cool stuff from the artists you love.

“Crowdmouth is not another social media platform. We’ve built it as an augmentation, as a plug-in for all of you social media.” – Jonathan Clay
