There are two types of memberships associated with Ask Leo!, and one thing that is not a membership at all!
Confusing, right? I know, I know. It’s what happens as a business evolves over closing in on 14 years(!) as of this writing.
Here’s the scoop.
Not a membership: The Ask Leo! Newsletter
If you’re a subscriber to my newsletter, that’s not a “membership”. What you’re getting – completely free – is my weekly email newsletter full of questions, answers, and whatever else I hope helps you navigate the world of technology.
There’s no fee, no registration, and there’s nothing to sign in to. You just subscribe, and you start getting it in your inbox once a week.
Thanks for being one!
Membership #1: Book purchaser
If you’ve purchased a book from me in recent years you’ll find there’s a chapter towards the end called “Register Your Book”. That chapter has a link, and that link lets you register to access the membership site “members.askleo.com”. Once you register your purchase you’ll get access to any updates, additional bonus content, and occasionally more depending on the book.
Thanks for your purchase, and congratulations! You’re a member!
Registering the book adds the information for that book to your membership. If you have multiple books, register each and each will be added, opening up the additional content and updates for that book. After you create your membership with the first one, registering additional books simply adds those things to your existing membership account.
Membership #2: Patrons at $5 or above
If you elect to become a patron of Ask Leo! then members.askleo.com also delivers the rewards offered for most of the patronage levels.
When you pledge $5 or more a month, within a day or two you’ll get an email from my assistant, Andrea. She’ll have created your membership account for you, and you’ll be able to sign in to members.askleo.com to get the rewards associated with your pledge.
If you’ve pledged less than $5 per month, then your rewards include my heartfelt thanks, and what we refer to as “adblocker absolution”, neither of which require any form of digital delivery, so there’s no membership needed. Should you increase your pledge to $5 or above, we’ll notice and set you up. 🙂
Either way, thank you for being a patron!
Membership #1 + Membership #2
There’s only one members.askleo.com, and you need only one account. So if you buy a book, and then become a patron – or become a patron and then buy a book – whatever comes second can simply be added to your existing members.askleo.com account.
Hope that’s not too terribly confusing!
And, as always, Thank You for your support in whatever way you happen to be here.
