I intend to create a VIP area with access to my party plan gurus. They will be on hand to help with training, advice and general business coaching. In addition extra training materials, leads, competitions etc will be made available to vips.
Hello There, I would like to use it to charge for message broadcasts to all members as well as payments for eBooks etc.
Kind Regards, Amanda Carlin
I am hoping to use any money we receive to offset the cost of prizes and shipping. Currently we accept donations with a paypal button and have earned some money but it is always from the same people each year.
I am leaving current members as lifetime free, with activity committments. Any new members will pay a membership.
If lifetime free members are inactive they will be deleted, and current paying members may be offered a free lifetime to replace inactive members. This will eventually be capped at 100 free members.
Simple. Build a better community through meet-ups! :] Meet-ups cost money.
I would love to win 1 year of access because:
1. Our network is growing very quickly and we will be implementing membership dues starting on 1/1/12.
2. Our members would gladly pay a modest fee.
3. Ning is a powerful medium and will allow us to grow further and expand.
4. I also want to use the free access to offer discounts, membership promotions and milestone prizes.
I am working with content providers who have training videos specifically for Sign Language interpreters. I am offering them the ability to distribute their content in the form of a subscription or lifetime access. This will greatly reduce their distribution costs and it will broaden the access to the training for interpreters across the USA. This will ultimately benefit Deaf and Hard of Hearing people when their looking for a job, applying to college, getting the promotion at work, etc.
I will sell e-mag downloads of back issues of my magazine to international members.
I'd like to create a world wide choir event so that people would get by Paid Access all the material they need for rehearsing (sheet music, parts, on-line rehearsals and so on). When a certain amount of singers/ money is achieved, all the singers would get together in a live event to sing the songs they have rehearsed and meet other people who love to sing.
i will give member that have a bussiness to announce on groups, daily mails..
We would like to use paid access to put our member directory (profile information) behind a pay wall. The most valuable part of our ning site is the other members.
Create paid groups as a way to fund specific art projects with a model similar to Kickstarter where most of the money goes to the project/artist and we keep a small percentage to cover admin fees.
I'm going to use it to create paid pages first of all with downloadable lessons, reports and videos. Then later I think I might dabble with paid groups. I would like to keep the network free though as it is a way for me to keep in touch with my students past and present and so it's worth keeping it free for them :-)
