A quick update from me in the attached video, covering:

- Where we are with Irish racing

- What to do about your subscription

- Why we're dropping the paywall for now

    Much respect,Matt.When the business behemoths Sky and B.T. sports refuse point blank to offer subscribers refunds it’s rather humbling to get this sort of message in your mailbox.
    I fervently hope that geegeez gets through this and that you,your family and colleagues are spared the worst privations of this pandemic.

      Matt Bisogno says:

      Thank you, Wayne.

      Everyone has to determine how to run their business, and how to comport themselves. I’ve always seen geegeez as a community where I try to treat people as I’d like to be treated. That’s pretty much always been the case on both side of the coin, I’m happy to say.

      If the switch off of UK racing is ten weeks or less (i.e. start of June), and if people generally re-subscribe when racing returns, we should be ok. But these are difficult times.

      Thanks for your note, it’s appreciated.

        Hi Matt

        Thanks for the update & the pro-active approach.

        Could you set out what is the position is for subscribers who have already paid for an annual subscription? Can they get a refund?

        Personally this is not an option I would take if I thought Geegeez would consider extending my subscription by the time period during which we don’t have racing.

        Obviously everyone has to do what’s right for them but I for one would like to see if we can get Geegeez to the other side of this crisis.

        Hang in there Matt.

          Matt Bisogno says:

          Hi Andrew

          I’ve added a note below the video to explain that. The plan is to extend subs to cover the missing period, once we know what it is.

          Many thanks for your support, it’s very much appreciated.

        Thanks Matt. I am yearly subscriber so will not do anything until Geegeez is back up.

        Wish you all the very best and hopefully landlords and bank managers will be understanding in helping when things settle

    Difficult times!
    I paid up front for the year and have probably reaped benefits over the last 6+ months.
    For now I will not cancel my subscription to help keep a valuable service afloat.
    Perhaps when we get back to normal a small period of extension may be considered?
    Good luck ans stay well.

      Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Mike

      Yes, absolutely. I actually forgot to mention in the video that annual subscribers can contact me when their sub is due for renewal and we’ll sort out an extension or partial refund. I want to make things fair/right for everyone, just as long as I’m able to.

      Best,
      Matt

      p.s. I’ll add this to the text in the post.

    Dennis says:

    Hi Matt,
    Thanks for your latest e-mail. I’ve always found Geegeez to be great value and I sincerely hope that you do manage to survive this latest hiatus for racing. The service that you provide is second to none. Sure, there are far more important things to worry about than racing but not when it provides your livelihood I guess..Best wishes to your family and friends and let’s hope we all come out unscathed the other side of this virus.

    cpablack says:

    Hi Matt,
    Sorry to hear your announcement as I know what it’s like to lose a good business through cash flow issues that weren’t of my making. I’d hate to lose Geegeez. I’m lucky enough to have a steady pension so I budget my subscription. So I for one am happy to commit say for the next three months to help keep things going. I’m sure there must be people similar to me that can afford to continue too. Obviously I don’t want to do this alone but maybe you could provide some figure such as if x subscribers commit then we can keep going for so long and then provide an update on success rate. As the other chap mentioned, maybe this can be recognised sometime in the future when everything is back on a even keel (e.g a token discount for a period). Anyway just a suggestion but good luck. Hope you get through it.

    • Matt Bisogno
      Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Chris

      Many thanks for your note and for the kind support. Without painting myself into a corner, I’d say the following statements are true:

      – If racing resumes on 1st May, no dramas
      – If racing resumes on 1st June, we’ll survive
      – If racing resumes on 1st July, we might not survive
      – If racing resumes in August or later, the game is up

      As it stands, given fixed outgoings and little to no incomings for the foreseeable, I will be subsidising the business to the tune of around £10,000-£12,000 a month.
      In other words, I’m burning cash until it runs out. It would be easier, and more sensible, to pull the plug now. But that is not my intention at this stage.

      Thanks again for your support
      Matt

    Hi Matt
    Due to enforced time off work have no choice but to cancel my subscription, but did so with a very heavy heart
    Thank you for the best racing cards ever, and fervently hope that Geegeez will rise up like a giant phoenix when all these troubling times start to recede.
    I wish you and your family and everyone connected with the site good luck and more importantly good health in the future
    With great sadness

    Patrick Davis says:

    Matt
    Sent you an email after you sent the original message out. Why not create different racing content whilst racing is off and cut subscription in half rather than cancelling?
    People who subscribe still have an interest in racing and, quite possibly, much more time on their hands!
    Get telephone interviews with bookies, trainers, stable lads, get interesting background stories, funny stories, tales of woe tales of fantastic luck, etc. Get items that can be won in competitions and use the money gathered from these competitions to help the racing community charities. Be the rallying call and the rallying site for the racing industry in these difficult times.
    50% fees is better than none and will keep the site going for longer than current predictions.
    These are difficult times, there is no sugar-coating that. You can surrender or you can get creative and fight on though.
    Best of luck

    warrenchester says:

    I think my subscription is about to renew although I can’t seem to find this in my account details Can you let me know how to find out?

    With regard your situation, you have my sympathies. I rely on some small self employed income and a drawn down pension pot. The work has dried up and the pot has so far shrunk by nearly 30%. Hopefully things will get better sooner rather than later.

    Can I make a suggestion. I’m reluctant to renew for a full year given my cash position and the risk to the business but I would like to support you. Could you switch to a monthly payment system so that those who want to can show their support but aren’t left over exposed if the racing doesn’t start again in time?

    Regards

    Warren

    id be more than happy to support you in my own small way that I can in paying for next years subscription in advance I don’t know how realistic this would be on a wider scale but being lucky enough to be in a position
    to be able to do this Id be more than happy to do so myself if it helps

    Hi Matt,

    I am in the same position as Chris income-wise so Sue and I would like to take out a gold subscription/donation for 3 months and then review/cancel depending on circumstances. And let’s hope WG wins big for us next season!
    Let me know bank account details by e-mail.

    Hi Matt

    Troubled times and then some. Losing Geegeez would be a disaster for many punters, and I hope all your subscribers can help if at all possible. I joined Geegeez Gold at the beginning and in that time you have helped me to win a lot more than I pay out for subscriptions. On that basis I am happy to continue to pay my monthly subscription. Good luck to you and all your family and friends.

    Fred Spry says:

    Hi Matt
    For some reason I don’t seem to be able to access the video but from the replies I’m reading I’m guessing it’s to do with the financial implications of the current crisis. As far as I’m concerned my subscription runs until October and as long as the site is up and running I will continue to use it. Obviously there will be no live racing to input but it is a good opportunity to play around with the various tools and learn more about them. Hopefully things will be back to normal soonish and we can continue to enjoy your excellent service.

    All the best

    Fred

    • Matt Bisogno
      Matt Bisogno says:

    Rambler says:

    Hi Matt,
    Thank you for the video update. I have been a Gold Members from the early days, hence the good price I have had for the excellent services you provide. Geegeez has never asked me for an increase in my monthly D.D. it would therefore be wrong of me to “jump ship” in these difficult times. I’m staying with the Gold Service until you tell me otherwise. Would be good if Chris could try to use the Irish racing for a SotD, however I fully understand there are benchmarks to selections – but you have to ask. All the best to the whole Geegeez Team.

    Hi Matt
    I love geegeez and it has dramatically improved my fortunes in the last 10 month’s or so. So as Mike mentioned above, I will to be able to continue my subscription. Doesn’t make me better or worse than anybody else, but my wife and I are still working, (she even copies my class 1 bets, not sure that’s allowed with terms of geegeez though ) Basically at the moment we can put back in what we have won thanks to geegeez for the time being. I am hoping geegeez survives because without it I probably won’t punt.

    Take care everyone in this community and stay safe.

    my subscription ( Annual) renewed at the beginning of this year. I am willing to let this run on and see what happens, personally I wish you all the best and lets hope we can all get through this and it doesn’t last too long.

    • Matt Bisogno

      Many thanks, Phil, that’s very much appreciated. I’m more than hopeful we’ll ride this out and then we can look at the annual subs and being fair to that group.

    Hi Matt,
    Been a Gold Member from a very early stage and its the first site I always open when going to have a bet.
    Like others have said you have never increased the DD from the time I joined and in that time the site has expanded to rival any other on the market .
    Will keep up with my subscription and lets hope we can pull thru this together .
    Stay safe everyone . I can’t believe I was at Sedgefield races only the other Tuesday watching the opening race of the Festival on the big screen . Seems a life time away now. Gary.

      Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Gary

      Yes, last week really does feel like a different era, doesn’t it?

      Very much appreciate you maintaining your sub and we’ll continue to do what we can in the interim to add value.

      Keep well,

No way will i cancel my subs i love the site to much and have the utmost fondness for yu Matt and the whole team, i hope this ends soon to save your bacon mate it must be a nightmare for you.
    Onwards and upwards we will win in the end.

  23. keysie78
    keysie78 says:

    Hi Matt,

    My annual subscription is up for renewal next month and I am 100% letting it continue and I would not expect any additional months to be given back when normal service is resumed, however long that is. The work you guys put into the site is immense and I want to try and help it stay that way.

    Perhaps there is an option of a donation page somewhere if others are willing to contribute more? Again, might be unrealistic and without knowing how many subscribers you have, if every one of us put in say £5, would that keep enough in the coffers?

    Thanks again for all your efforts

    Steve

    • Matt Bisogno
      Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Steve

      Thanks a million for your kind words and gesture. I’ll not go down the ‘donation’ route, as maintenance of existing subscriptions – where people are willing and able – sort of amounts to that already.

      The support of many members such as yourself is overwhelming, and it is fair to say I have a degree more confidence in our ability to ride this out having read those comments than I did first thing this morning!

      Best,
      Matt

  24. Noisynoy
    Noisynoy says:

    I note cpablack’s comments and echo them. I’m a pensioner and a “Lifetime Member” having thrown my lot (and cash) in with you in the early development stages. I would not think I’m alone in stating that I totally believe in what you have achieved and what you still want to achieve and cannot think about following this sport without your company as the ONLY service provider that has and will continue to make my investment in racing fun AND profitable. To that end, I would want to be first in the queue for your “rescue service”, should you need it. Please make a note, right now, to bring us up to speed on 1st May, if racing has not resumed (and I fear we’re right in both believing that this may well be the case!) with what you need from ALL your members who feel like I do, to carry on month by month and NOT shut the business down. I propose you open a “Rescue fund” and invite us to participate pro rata to the number who sign up and who WANT you to get through this. So, you could, for instance, contact us saying “if 1,000 of you want me to stay and fight, then I need £20 from you unconditionally every month until racing resumes”. These people, having thrown their lot in with you, might enjoy a discounted rate (to be decided by you) on a new start-up package. Those who subsequently rejoined Geegeez (not participating in the rescue fund) would, naturally, pay more in whatever way your business model required. If we allow you to fail, we will only have ourselves to blame but, of course, everyone has to take care of the more important things in life first (Family, health, mortgage etc.). Maybe being a pensioner is a privilege right now but not if the virus gets you (!) and not if your pension fails due to the investment crash. I’m just saying, right now, you should not think of “fading away” but of asking us, your friends and fans, “what could you do to help?”. Only then will you find out if survival is possible. We love you, Matt and wish you and your team and their families protection from all harm in the coming weeks. Stay safe! Richard

    • Matt Bisogno
      Matt Bisogno says:

      As always, Richard, your grace is a welcome respite from the reality of the situation. A reality, as I’ve mentioned in response to other comments, that is a little less biting as a result of the generosity of people who, like you, love what we’ve tried to do down the years.

      Let’s see for how long the hiatus lasts. Right now, we’ll be fine, but midsummer if we’re still not racing, it might be different.

      Thanks again for your kindness, Richard, and stay well.

    Hi Matt, I have been a member on and off (time dependant on my part) since the early years and rejoined for Cheltenham last week. I emailed earlier in the week to claim my free month from your sign up offer, but would like to scrap that request and will continue the monthly subs as well I support.
    Will be using the time to delve more into the query tool. All the best and stay safe and healthy

    Hi Matt

    I’m not cancelling, geegeez has been a source of great enjoyment and a reasonable profit over the last years, so I will keep with you and the rest of the team. We all have to be sensible, but try and maintain a degree of normality and hopefully get through the storm intact.

      Thank you, Paul.

      I am not surprised to discover that, when it comes to the geegeez community, fairness is considered a two-way street. Not surprised, but very happy to be reminded.

    chris vaughan says:

    Hi Matt,

    how about getting some signed stuff in including some of the kit jockeys where with your sponsorship etc.
    i am sure there would be plenty of kit around and raise money for the Geegeez and maybe jockey fund in tandem. and if you weather the storm then donate your half of proceeds to the jockey fund or retired horses etc?

    • Matt Bisogno
      Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Chris

      Thanks for the suggestion. It’s certainly something to think about. As you say there is plenty of kit around. I’ll try to run a competition to win a pair of geegeez breeches or some such later in the year when we’re all back on an even keel.

    Jan says:

    Hi Matt,

    I am very sorry to see, how current situation affects Geegeez. Even though I am a new subscriber and still in the trial period, I will help with my little bit and get the subscription as the value your site provides is top of the draw and I really don’t want to see Geegeez leave the horse racing stats scene.
    Even though health of everybody is precious, hopefully this will be over in a foreseeable future and we will get back to “normal”.
    Good luck Matt and thanks for all your hard work,

      Hi Jan

      You’re very welcome to our ‘tribe’, and thank you so much for your support. As you may have read in the comments, we try to do things the right way and take care of everyone; and, of course, we have great data for the racing!

      As you quite rightly say, let’s hope we revert to something like normal some time soon. Again, welcome, and thank you.

    Great to see the support from everyone here Matt and thanks for being so up front and honest in these difficult times, you’re a gent.

    Philip Grundy says:

    Sorry to hear this.
    Probably I never really thought about the business and expenses side of your service ( I actually thought you worked from a home office which maybe an idea going forward ) but I am therefore surprised at your monthly exes, though obviously do not dispute them.
    I am a life Gold member, which is undoubtedly the best racing investment I ever made, but would be prepared to start as of next month paying the monthly sub till you hopefully get straight.
    Don`t be embarrassed about this Matt, it`s not a completely altruistic offer as I have a lot to lose! and I have long known what a decent guy you are.
    During Cheltenham I bought the RP for my wife at £3.50 a pop so I realise what a great deal I am on.
    If you let me know the payment details I will make the arrangements.
    With very best regards,
    Philip

    • Matt Bisogno
      Matt Bisogno says:

      Hi Philip

      That’s very kind and much appreciated.

      Some of the costs, notably the office and marketing resource, were brought in earlier this year as I decided it was time to expand the business. Timing, eh?

      Anyway, as I say, I do appreciate your kind offer, which I’m in a position to graciously decline for now, pending racing returning sometime close to the suggested resumption date.

    Hi Matt,
    What about having a ‘one off donations’ button that people can donate whatever they want so maybe people who have a win on the Irish racing or enjoy some of your videos can just donate what they can afford … Small amounts might add up.

    Hi Matt….I agree with all the comments above about the great value for money geegeez is and have no intention of cancelling…if truth be told i’ve hardly used geegeez that much this year because of other commitments but its worth every penny for the editorial content alone…chin up…

    Hello Matt.

    I read through the comments posted and feel proud to be part of a community that feels so passionate about GeeGeez survival. I am a Postman and even in these uncertain times I find it incredulous about some peoples attitudes to the situation we find ourselves in. But it comes as no surprise to me of the support you will receive, if you so desire it ,from this racing community, the comments testify to this. Like many others I will continue with my subscriptions until this madness is over and be rest assured we, and you Matt( and GeeGeez) will prevail. I wish you ,your family and all other GeeGeez members well . Be safe everyone.

    Thankyou
    Paul

    Hi Matt,

    I have been a monthly Gold subscriber for quite some time and thoroughly enjoy all the fantastic content that Geegeez provides. The website and associated articles are way ahead of the competition and you and the entire team have my total support during this difficult time. I will not cancel my subscription (never entered my thinking) and just hope and pray we all get through this.

    Kind Regards,

    Paul Godden

    Hi Matt,

    I’m an annual Gold subscriber and you can count me on a permanent basis as a paid member. Like many others who’ve posted here, I couldn’t imagine life without GeeGeez.

    Good luck – we’re right there with you!

    Hi Matt

    I’m not subsciber, but recieve your emails. Just wanted to wish you and the team all the best with the service, well done for doing the right thing in the circs, many major concerns need shaming into doing the right thing. I’m sure many of your long term subs will help keep you afloat, now is the time to pull together.

    Kind Regards
    David.

    I’m only a recently joined member of Geegeez but am already a big fan of your excellent service and have only just paid my months subs but am quite happy to have done so, going forward when times might get a bit more financially difficult how about a reduced payment option say half price until these things sort themselves out.
    Good luck and good health to all lets pull together and help each other when we can.
    All the best……Martin

    Happy to let my subscription run for a couple of months. If you do need funds to restart I’m sure there is a lot of us might buy into a Platinum membership!

    Hi Matt,

    I’m not a member I just get your emails but I just wanted to say that reading these comments has been good for the soul. I congratulate you on creating such a supportive online community. You obviously provide an excellent service that
    Is great value for money and it is that, combined with your honesty and integrity that has persuaded these kind people to continue to support you through this difficult time.

    Hi Matt,
    Many thanks for the update and fingers crossed that the shut-down isn’t as long as I fear it may be.
    Like many on here I’m a long term gold subscriber who loves the site and thinks it offers fantastic value, so happy to keep paying my monthly subscription.

    Hey Matt, I’ve only just been able to view the video today. Thanks for the ‘heads-up’. Subscribing to geegeez, has really increased the fun and enjoyment I get out of horse racing and has taken me on a brilliant journey so far. Long may geegeez continue – I’m positive it will. In the meantime stay well, safe, and positive!

    Matt what can I say. The world is knackered by the current situation.

    The best service and website which I love.

    Do whatever you need to do so that you can return. It would be madness to guess when the world will return so that racing is a business we can bet on.

    I feel for you and your staff , very painful

    Love you guys micko

    There will be no racing in Ireland until at least April 19, after the Irish Government announced that all sporting events will be cancelled as of midnight on Tuesday, including those behind closed doors.
