Some quick updates with The 21 Convention.
Above is a short photo trailer I made using Animoto, highlighting the 2014 event speakers. You could call it a slideshow, but photo trailer sounds much cooler =D.
As the trailer states, you can get early ad-free access to 2014 videos at the21convention.com/21u. This is a premium subscription service we are offering this year instead of the usual mass download or DVD option.
The videos will be presented through the new program ad-free, and publish on a regular basis at about 200% the speed of the YouTube channel; same videos, double the speed, half the waiting. In some cases we’ll also grant “super-advance” access to a speech or podcast, something from much further down the pipeline (4 months+, etc).
There will be other bonuses with the subscription service as well, including exclusive access to speeches pulled from YouTube. These are rare but there are some no longer available on YouTube, so this will be the only way to access them. (The reasons for this vary per video).
In the end, the idea is to create a stunningly awesome membership service to watch more speeches, no ads, and kick more ass in life. As an added perk, it will be an effective way to financially support The 21 Convention and get something truly amazing in return.
In related news, we are starting up a 21C coaching program where a 21C team member spends time with you to hand pick one of our speakers as a personal coach. Health, dating, relationships, you name it, we have a coach to work with you personally.
I’ve also decided to begin offering lifetime memberships to The 21 Convention. This membership will get you into the convention for life with exclusive perks like front row seating and VIP dinner access. We also opened up a small 21C book store, similar to the one here on TDL. When you buy books there you support The 21 Convention, when you buy books here you support me directly.
Either one is great =). There is no cost to you either, a small percent of the revenue just gets paid to me or the company (depending on where you buy).
Finally, we’re beginning to roll out behind the scenes interviews from Tampa that my wife created. We have one with every speaker but me.
