Sometimes we can get carried away with thinking out the perfect membership pricing strategy. But who or what do we truly end up optimizing for?
I appreciate this isn’t for everyone…but with me taking on a new job that is actually my old job, I realized I care more about simplicity of my systems over what people pay. I want to feel supported and for there to be enough of a filter for bringing in the right kind of people (which in turn brings me more joy in the running of Rosieland on a day to day basis).
There is no science behind this, but I can confirm new membership subscriptions have been balanced out between all tiers.
Could we all take a moment to listen to the song “Every breath you take” by The Police whilst thinking about a recently inactive member? Thanks Simon Tomes!😅
I love this reflection on the thresholds of community. We design and expect rituals for when people join a community, but usually dismiss the needs and benefits of one for when we leave.
[Peter Block] suggests that when people leave a meeting, they let everyone know why they are leaving. Such an act is a kindness as it shows a concern for clarity in the space. — Chris Corrigan
