3.2 Subscriptions

Membership options:
Currently, we offer two membership options, the Standard “Access All Courses” Membership and the Pro Membership ‘Access All Courses + Mentoring’. In both, you have unlimited access to all our courses and any new courses added as long as your membership is active. 

In addition to that, in the Pro Membership, you also have:

  • Early access to YouTube tutorials + New Courses
  • Pro Member private Facebook community group
  • Access to downloadable guides and resources 
  • Access to Creative projects with briefs
  • We provide two rounds of review and feedback per month, one via video feedback and one through our Pro Members Livestream. Usually, this feedback takes place every two weeks. We will notify of the deadline dates via email.
  • Pro Members have up to 6 project submission allowance per month.  If you submit more than six designs, then we will review it the following month. 
  • If your design is approved, the status will be set to read Approved, and the lesson will be marked complete.
  • If Rejected, you will be able to make another submission for review.
  • Once you resubmit, and you follow our feedback and it meets the brief, then we may automatically approve it without giving further feedback!
  • Feedback will only be given to students who take part in our Creative Briefs. We may not be able to review personal work or any designs uploaded to the Facebook group.

Billing Cycle: The Membership fee for any of our Standard or Pro Memberships will be charged on a monthly or yearly basis according to your Payment Method on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of the paying portion of your membership until your membership is cancelled. 

Membership fees are fully earned upon payment. In some cases your payment date may change, for example if your Payment Method has not successfully settled or if your paid membership began on a day not contained in a given month. In your Account section, you can see when the next term is due. You can access all the courses and content in your account till the end of the payment period, even if you cancel earlier. Due to the technical limits though, some of the emails may not be sent to you after the cancel, for our mailing system only can only track the fact of the cancellation and not the individual renewal dates. Because of this, if you wish to cancel, it’s best to set up a date in your calendar and cancel a day or two before the renewal.

Cancellation: You can cancel your any of your memberships at any time, and you will continue to have access to the content through the end of your monthly billing period. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial-month membership periods. To cancel, go to the “Billing” page within your Account (top right corner), select ‘Cancel Membership’, and follow the instructions for cancellation. If you cancel your membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period.

Trial Billing: If there was a free trial for your membership, we will charge your Payment Method for your monthly membership fee at the end of the free trial period and your membership will automatically renew monthly unless you cancel your membership prior to the end of the free trial period. To view the monthly membership price and end date of your free trial period, sign into your account and click the “Billing details” tab.

This includes pointing people to blog posts with your offers/affiliate offers and publicly asking members to join your own Facebook groups or communities. Be cautious of unsolicited private messages to group members. If we get multiple complaints that you or someone else is using private messages to make unsolicited pitches to members, you may be asked to leave. You should view the group as your peers, not your leads.
