I’m excited to announce a new way to connect with you through a membership that will let me bring EXCLUSIVE content plus INSTANT ad-free access to my printables. Some of you might be wondering, why I’ve decided to launch a membership and how it will impact this website.
Here’s what you’ll find in this post:
- I’ll share my why in this real talk section, next.
- What’s changing exclusive vs free in-post printables
- Then, sneak peek at what’s included in January’s membership!
1. Why a Start a Membership?
Behind the Scenes Real Talk:
Did you know that I put in 30-40 hours each week of work creating singing time ideas, designing printables, posting social media updates, fixing old posts, making flip charts, adding general posts to help music leaders, and so much more.
Pageviews and ad revenue helps, but I’m currently making minimum wage in exchange for the time investment. I’m okay with it, because I LOVE the creative outlet and I hope this blog continues to grow as the go-to source for Primary Music Leaders.
But, to help support my family and the time invested I’m offering a new membership for those who want everything I can offer! I hope it’s a win-win situation!
Here are some of the issues I hope this membership helps to tackle:
- My time is at a premium and I need planning help!
- I’m a new music leader and not sure how to get started
- I don’t have time or energy to bounce from post to post
- The ads are intrusive or bothersome to me
- I don’t want the weekly email newsletter (for PLUS+ access)
- There’s so many ideas it can be overwhelming
Fast, Easy, Convenient, Organized, & Ad-Free:
You’ll be able to skip jumping from post-to-post to find all my printable files. The printables are available now for January and available:
- Faster with early access
- Easier with a 1-click download packet
- More convenient with 1-page for all the files
- With a monthly chart to help you pick your activities in minutes!
- Plus, you’ll skip all the in-post ads to reach those files
2. What’s Changing on Primary Singing?
I’ll still be giving away free printables in-post for all the monthly songs for email subscribers. But a few things are changing:
Printed Lesson Plan Directions:
You’ll notice I won’t be including the printable lesson plan overview within the free printables going forward. But no worries, all of the directions on how to use the printables are right in the post!
This change is really important because I’ve found many skip right past all the useful information straight to the printables. This hurts the most critical website metric – time on site – which impacts search ranking and ad revenue.
- Singing Time Lesson Plan with each printable
I have a passion for making printables with TONS of flexibilty and options. But that means for most people a very big file that can be confusing. To simplify those downloads, some of the extended ideas will become exclusives for members.
Here’s what’s different in January’s list:
- Jesus Once Was a Little Child – Foreign Language in 1/2 sheet size
- Jesus Once Was a Little Child – Yoga Poses in full page, color
- Jesus Once Was a Little Child – First letters bonus color code
- Time of Your Life – Full page time keepers and singing speed cards
There will also be some of my printables that won’t be shared publicly on my blog. These activities likely won’t be tied to a specific song title, as I want everyone to be able to utilize all those ideas each month. You can see an example in the list below to see how it’s changing.
The exclusive files might include a seasonal activity, a printable help for staying organized, a genius printable to stash in your singing time bag for subs, etc! See the Song Snowflakes this month as an example! I spent an entire day creating those and testing them out.
These files may be available for sale separately in my Etsy shop, but won’t be offered as part of the free in-post printables.
