Subscription set up

Wed, 11 Nov 2009

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to comment or send emails about the subscription plan. In the light of all your comments I've made a few changes:

I've dropped the price to £9.95 a year or £5.95 for six months.

When you first subscribe, you'll have access to the two most recent downloadable models for free. (Currently Reindeer Ride and Dog Ate My Homework) this will roll along as new models are introduced. You'll be able to download any new models introduced for the duration of your subscription.

As a subscriber, you're taking a chance that I'll produce new models over the course of the year. The subscription costs about the same as four downloads from the shop. As a guarantee for subscribers, if, for any reason, I don't produce a model in any three month period, I'll send all subscribers a token so that you can download the model of your choice from the shop.

How does that all sound?

The subscriber area is available to join now!

    Amusing to reflect that in a way you’re ressurecting an old way of doing this sort of thing – I think quite a lot of Dickens novels were serialised and made available as a subscription … 🙂

        Bah Humbug indeed, but it does point the way to a more sustainable, personable way of individuals interacting with each other – I would far rather have a commercial relationship with a smaller organisation that I feel I know than a big conglomerate … and it’s a relationship that I’m far more likely to maintain too.

    Just wondered what Rob and others thought about the etiquette in relation to the mono models.

    I’ve just subscribed and downloaded the 2 most recent models I’ve also downloaded the mono versions of those models also but not made any payment for them.

    Is this what you would expect to to, i.e. if you’ve paid for the full version the mono comes as a free extra.

    If that is what you would expect would it make sense to add the mono pages to the full colour version

    thoughts ?

      Good point. I think that for models that have a mono version it would be worth bundling that version with the colour version. Meanwhile – yes – if you paid for the colour then there is no reason at all to pay for the mono.
