New Prices! New Partners! New Projects!
We’re delighted to announce the most sweeping set of new developments at The Green Interview since the site first went live in April, 2010!
New Lower Prices!
When we started, we didn’t know what it would cost us to provide a service like The Green Interview. Now we do, and it’s less than we had feared. So there’s room for us to lower the price. And we have – in most cases by about 30%.
These new prices are a response to feedback from people like you, our subscribers and registrants. Our earlier pricing, we learned, was too expensive, particularly for people in developing nations, and we really want to make the site fully inclusive.
In addition to cutting our prices, we’re introducing a range of new purchase options and choices. The Green Interviews are now available as videos, audios and transcripts – and they can be purchased either as subscriptions or as individual interviews in any of those three formats.
Full subscriptions – now known as Gold subscriptions – drop from $14.95 monthly (or $6.95 for seniors, students and low-income subscribers) to just $9.95 and $5.95 respectively. Annual subscriptions fall from $169.00 to $99.95. Silver subscriptions, which provide access to the audio interviews but not to the videos, are priced at $5.95 and $3.95. Bronze subscriptions – for just the transcripts – are $3.50 a month. For full details, click here:http://www.thegreeninterview.com/catalog
We’ll adjust these prices automatically. You don’t have to do a thing. If you’ve subscribed at $14.95 or $6.95, your next credit card statement will show a charge of $9.95 or $5.95. If you’ve subscribed for a year, we’ll calculate the number of months you have left till renewal, and increase that length of time by 50%.
We’ve introduced transcripts of the interviews because subscribers wanted them. Not everyone has high-speed internet service. Some have slow dial-up connections, and video or even audio just isn’t practical in that context. Some people would rather read the interviews than watch them anyway. One subscriber is an ocean-crossing sailor who wants to read the interview during long offshore passages. So, starting now, we’re offering transcripts of the interviews as downloadable PDF files.
Third, some subscribers – often educators – told us they wanted to be able to buy the interviews individually. Maybe you want your class to understand ecological footprint analysis, so you want access to the Bill Rees interview, not to the nearly 20 interviews now posted on the site. Now you can buy as many or as few as you like – and you can buy any one of them in any of the three formats. For more details, click here: http://www.thegreeninterview.com/order-individual-interviews
To implement these new prices, the site will be offline for a few hours this weekend. When we come back up, the changes will be in place. We hope they’ll make the site much more flexible and much more affordable. We look forward to hearing your reactions.
New Partners! New Projects!
We’ve formed a wonderful new partnership with a major international company, Gale Cengage Learning. And we’re about to launch our first Special Presentation – an array of interviews, other video and text materials, all focussed on Bhutan’s quest to maximize Gross National Happiness rather than Gross National Product. We’ll be making major announcements on these two points over the next few days. Stay tuned!
