Lots of folks have asked how you can directly support what we’re doing here at The Weekly. Well, now we’ve got an answer. You can join us as a member!
Best of all, the price is really nice.
That price is: whatever you choose to pay.
Yep, that’s right. You get to decide. I think that’s the best pricing model for what we’re trying to do in the community. That comes from a few different thoughts:
- I trust you to choose a fair price that fits with your current financial situation. Depending on where you’re at in life right now, you might have $5 or $500 to spare. Only you can know where you’re at.
- I feel these conversations should be available to everyone. Knowledge is power and limiting that behind a set price doesn’t move our community forward.
- I believe in being a good neighbor. We watch out for each other and help each other. When we can afford to give a little more, we keep things accessible to others that are on a tighter budget.
I know what you’re thinking – why should I pay anything?
When you’re not paying for something, you’re often one the one being sold. We’ve seen this throughout history and throughout a range of products – everything from newspapers to social media. When advertisers are paying the bills, it’s a race to get the most attention possible rather than what’s best for the community.
I’d rather not participate in that race. Instead, I’d love to keep focused on the work we do by making it affordable and accessible to everyone. That’s how we as a community get smarter and better connected.
That’s the deal – donate what you want to be a member. If you don’t know what you’d like to pay, the national average for something like this is around $10 per month. If you can offer up more, go for it! You’ll be helping neighbors with budgets that are a bit tighter.
Share your love for The Weekly by supporting us with a monthly or yearly donation. Together, we can help Fayetteville become smarter and better connected!
