First, thanks for a whirlwind of comments and feedback on TPMPrime, our new membership section debuting in October. We’ve — I personally — have been gratified and greatly appreciate the response and interest. In case you haven’t seen our discussion so far, here’s my announcement of TPMPrime (what it is, why you should join) and then the follow up post on price.
TPMPrime officially opens its doors on October 15th. And tomorrow, the 1st, we start our launch membership drive.
Here’s how it will work. We need to launch with as many members as possible. So for the next two weeks we’ll be offering only our annual membership ($50). (Later in the month we’ll be introducing a monthly membership rate as well.) Everyone who signs up in the first half of October will be a “Launch member”. No special privileges but a permanent recognition that you were that at the beginning to help us get Prime off the ground. As Mitt Romney might say, “You Built That!”
