Sax Bandits - Case study using XenForo to create a private membership only community

It's going well, especially as Covid restrictions have eased up over the last 6 months. Rob has been busy leading Sax bandits jam sessions and creating new video tutorials for members:


He's recently taken on a new band leader to help expand the number of locations and sessions available to attend each month.

Growth has been attained through a mix of offline and online marketing. Offline through local music shops, and word of mouth, and online through facebook ads.

As it grows we're considering integrating new XF user registration data into the CRM or something similar to better track and manage incoming leads.

Oh yes, he also arranged a Sax workshop with sax legend Snake Davis available to book for members only.

It sold out in less than 24 hours so a second workshop date was added and that has also now sold out.

I quite like the forum index card layout. Is there an addon that does this without the need to spend months customizing themes?
Sax Bandits performed a 30-minute set at Fearlessly Odd Festival in Twyford, Berkshire on Thursday 2nd June 2022 in celebration of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. This 'monster' band of 70+ saxophonists is formed from our 6 local bands which meet across 3 counties!
