One time $20 payment
Here at the Mendocino Voice we’d really like information to be free, but we also have to keep the lights on and the servers running. So we’re asking you to sign up as a member.
We’re not going to put up a pay-wall, but it would go a long ways towards bootstrapping independent media in the county if you signed up for a subscription.
In the future we will offer special perks to our members like cool t-shirts, and free tickets to talks and lectures. But for now it’s kind of the honor system, if you read our paper please pay for it. We work hard to deliver these stories, and we can’t do it for free.
We also have a business membership program, for more information about that contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
$20 Trial Membership.
So, if you’re not sure about this newfangled news-on-the-internet deal, and want to just slip us a little gratuity, try the one time payment.
Basic Membership $5/month
If you read us a few times a month, and you think we’re doing good work, consider signing up for a basic membership. You know the old saying, “that and a buck fifty will get you a cup of coffee.” Well, we can’t pour coffee over the internet, but tell me you’re a member and I’ll buy you a cup next time I see you.
Premium Membership $10/month
If you read us a few times a week, consider the premium membership. It’s less than going to the movies once a month, and it’s cheaper than Netflix or HBOgo. Come on, independent news is more valuable than Game of Thrones. And we’re working on getting more dragons in the paper.
Mark Twain $20/month
If you read us every single day, think about our Mark Twain plan — unlike him we always tell the truth in our stories.
Ben Franklin $30/month
And, if you’re feeling really generous, or really enjoy our coverage of county news, try the Ben Franklin plan — it’s the equivalent of $1 a day (cheaper than a candy bar, or a New York Times, and easier on your teeth), and the original American printer and newspaperman would be proud.
Finally, for the people who really want to chip in for local media, there’s the Joseph Pulitzer on Layaway plan. We’re not promising that we’ll win that Pulitzer this year, but with your help we’ll pay for it on layaway.
And just to throw it out there, if you’ve done so many drugs you can’t remember what money is, or why it matters, go ahead and sign up for the $100/month Hunter S. Thompson Membership, the lizard people will thank you.
