Setting The Record Straight… The Polymer Clay Tutor Videos Will Continue To Be Complimentary Every Week (for now anyway):
There’s been some confusion about the upcoming membership site announcement discussed in last week’s September 25 post. That article was intended to ONLY be about the video newsletter back issues. It was NOT supposed to be about whether there would be a fee for the regular weekly delivery of the newsletter.
Any talk of pricing was meant to be for those of you who want to build an ongoing private library of videos to refer back as often as you like.
For now, I am not planning to take away the free weekly access that so many of you have been enjoying and benefiting from.
By the way, here’s the link to the September 25th blog post if you want to get caught up with all of the commenting that happened over there: Video Polymer Clay Tutorial Back Issues
So for those of you who were thinking of saying “farewell,” there’s no need to worry. My polymer clay tutorial videos will continue to be available free [...except of course for the last couple of weeks while I have been working *very* hard to get things switched over to the new membership site platform].
The reason I am making this big switch is because it will allow me to deliver all of the video content [plus the new color recipe cards... which I think you are going to love], all in one place.
The free stuff will be there; The paid video archive library; The monthly courses; The Recipe Cards; etc., etc.
This new “platform” will also allow me to add in other exciting enhancements like member photo uploading of community discussion groups… one step at a time though :-).
Entry level memberships to this new members library will be free. And all of you will definitely be welcome!!!
Even More Good News…
I took into account everything that was shared in the September 25 blog post about how much should be charged for the video newsletter back issues.
Many of you asked that the price be set at $2 a month. I suggested $10… but have ended up coming way down to about the $3 per month level.
I sharpened my pencil as best I could to make this library idea as accessible as possible. I’m sincerely hoping that the majority of you will be able to take advantage this offer.
If you do, that will allow the “numbers” to work on my end so that prices won’t have to be raised to cover costs down the road.
As suggested, I will also look for other means to support the network as well, through sponsorships and advertising opportunities.
To keep things ultra simple, the price will be $9.95 charged every 3 months using PayPal’s auto billing, credit card system. If you have a Paypal account, great! If not, that’s not a problem. Paypal allows you to use your credit card directly with their system.
This $9.95/3month rate will give you ongoing access to not only the searchable video archives, but you will also receive 1 new polymer clay recipe card every week as well.
I wish I could give you the sign up link right now, but I’m still working (frantically) to get everything set up and functioning properly. It will be soon though. I promise! Thank you so much to everyone for your kind understanding and support.
PS: I haven’t forgotten about the bonus color recipe cards promised to everyone who shared thoughts and opinions about the pricing issue. When the members library opens, I will be sending out an email to all of you explaining how you will be able to add these recipe cards to your personal accounts.
Please tell me what you think about the above proposal in the comments section below. Does this work for you?
