On July 1, we launched our Geeks on Tour membership program. I thought you might like an update on how it's going.
It's going well! We are very excited now to have 115 paid members. And, they're saying things like:
"Just finished watching the Picasa and Blogger videos. Now I have slide shows in my blog!"
"Your videos are excellent & answered all my questions"
"Even though I am a pretty savvy web user, I learned A LOT from your videos"
"Your video about using search in Windows Vista helped a lot"
Each member paid $29. For that, they receive one year of full access to all the videos on GeeksOnTour.com plus access to the Members Q&A Forum. And we receive our first month in a looong time that we haven't needed to 'borrow' from savings to make ends meet! I call that a Win/Win arrangement.
If you don't know about our videos, there are plenty of free samples that you can view. To browse the list of all the videos, take a look at the menu at the left of our website under "Computer Tutorial Videos" - you'll see all the categories there. You can also sign up for our free newsletter. You don't need to become a paying member, or even a newsletter subscriber, to view all the free stuff on our website - lots of articles about Wi-Fi, lots of seminar handouts and all the past issues of the newsletter are available in the newsletter archive.
For those of you who do find enough value in our videos to join, THANK YOU, and we promise some new videos soon! It's hard to describe the joy we feel in knowing that our work is appreciated. Not to mention the joy in believing that we'll be able to maintain our lifestyle this way!
If you want to become a member, you can join here. The introductory price of $29 for one year is valid until August 31. On September 1, it will go up to $39.
Back to our travels: We added Vermont to our map after staying here last night (see our map of current travels - upper right of the blog) and we're on to Rhode Island today (state #46!). We'll have to come back to experience Vermont, but the drive was beautiful.
