🚧 We're building a game-changing feature, and we'd love some feedback! Attaching screenshots

What if you could offer your expertise or access right from your BMC page? (1-1 consultation, Zoom session invite, shout outs, art commissions, you name it). What if you can set a price for each one? Or maybe offer something nice for all supporters in an easy way!

This is probably one of the most requested features of all time. Up until now, creators have been hacking it together (here’s a great example) with features like ‘thank you message’ and ‘message all’. So we’re building it out to make it as simple and straightforward as possible, and without being too prescriptive. There’s a good chance that the best use-cases are going to be something that we’ve never thought of! :slight_smile:

Very excited to share this with the community first. Let us know how you like the idea, and how you’re planning to use it. I hope y’all are well and safe!

Attaching some early screenshots. Here’s a use-case landing page:

Thank you page for supporters (they can access this later + they’ll get an email too):

Now I have more options to offer to my community! I’m planning to use BMC as my online tutorial platform… and actually I have an event powered by BMC this coming sunday May 10.

Thank you so much for your feedback @WolfeWithAnE, @Conscious and @warengonzaga! We’re really looking forward to this feature, and we hope that it’ll become something that will be really useful for BMC creators :tada:

@pia to me the most interesting aspect of offerings is, as @jijo noted, the integration of features that would otherwise require additional work and a lot of duct tape.

I see offerings especially useful for premium experiences because time for real-time interactions doesn’t scale well. I have no specific ideas at the moment but the feature is intriguing.

I would LOVE this!
As a musician & youtuber who is also helping performers and muso friends get setup for streaming - its been a mental few weeks - this would be amazing instead of asking if they are setup for anything… especially since you take Pay and more! Awesome!

I will definitely give this a try. For Sketchup tutorials with a member only discount, either one on one or group. how close is it to going live?

@Alastair Very close. Hopefully less than a week. We were testing it with some creators this week, and have some ideas for improvements before we launch it platform-wide.

@JohnPaulMusicUK That’s awesome! I’ll ping you as soon as we go live with this.

Quick update: we’ve improved the design! We also named the feature ‘Extras’. Any thoughts? :slight_smile:

The new feature looks versatile. What are the differences between Extras and the current Shop/Coffeelinks?

2 Likes

Great question, Paolo. Shop/coffeelinks was a standalone product, and we saw a lot of friction for creators to use it for pretty much anything except for digital downloads. We built Extras from the ground up with many simple use-cases in mind, such as Ask Me Anything, 1:1 video calls, Consultations, etc. which would’ve been harder to pull off effectively with Shop. Does that make sense?

Yes, it makes sense. I seem to understand Extras is the evolution of Coffeelinks based on the experience with them.
