Prospective Members

An inclusive community based in Slack, the 2,000+ Serial Marketers members share job opportunities, get recommendations for who to work with and what technologies to use, post event invites, showcase their latest projects, and support each other in countless ways. We’re always welcoming new members. Request access today at www.serialmarketers.net.

No. Most members don’t pay a cent.

I’m SO glad you asked. Yes, we do have Premium membership available for a low annual rate. Learn more at https://serialmarketers.net/pricing/.

Benefits include access to all our Salon video chat archives, the opportunity to post a profile on our Advisors profile, exclusive discounts, services listings in our Memberpedia member database, and more.

It’s up to you. Some members scan posts on occasion or read the weekly members-only emails with a roundup of all the community activity. Some members participate multiple times daily.

Most of the activity does take place in Slack on an ongoing basis, but we also use tools and platforms like Upstream, Zoom, Meetup, and Clubhouse to connect with each other and share information.

Prospective Subscribers

Really. This was one of the goals for coming up with a paid plan: add value for paid members without taking anything away for free members.

Free members still get full access to the community. You can still post jobs. You’ll still get the newsletter every other week with member updates. You can still attend weekly video chats (the Salons) and the 1:1 SpeedUp events hosted on Upstream, along with any others like First Wednesday. You can still log in as often as you want and connect with as many members as you want. You can still use #wanted and #offers and even the #bookclub to your heart’s content. You still get access to the members-only Meetup group. And you’ll get to keep connecting with everyone else here, even as the membership keeps growing.

Not everyone will want to pay. Some won’t have the budget, even with a package designed to be as reasonable as possible. That’s fine. Keep doing what you’re doing. I’m so thrilled you’re here, and there are so many others who are just as appreciative. None of that changes. I’m touched that you care about this group enough to even read this. Thank you.

Not for charity or for goodwill.

You should become a premium member because you selfishly want access to what’s launching for the community (see more below).

And, as a bonus, you’ll get to fund this roadmap so it happens a heck of a lot faster.

When you subscribe to Serial Marketer’s annual plan, you get a ton of perks for one straightforward, annual rate. Your investment in the community will create even more opportunities where you can invest in yourself and your business.

  • Video recordings and transcripts from weekly Serial Marketers Salons (including archives)
  • The opportunity to join Serial Marketers Advisors where you can host ‘office hours’ around your specified areas of expertise; you can charge a fee or do it pro bono to generate leads
  • Services listings in the Memberpedia member database (anyone can update their own profile, but only Premium members post services)
  • Opportunity to feature classified-style ‘wanted’ or ‘offered’ listings in the Serial Marketers bi-weekly newsletter (based on availability)
  • Opportunity to submit thought leadership materials to a central library exclusively for Serial Marketers members
  • 10% discount on community membership for each of up to four additional members of your team
  • 10% off rate card for sponsoring Serial Marketers events and Serial Marketer newsletter (pending availability)
  • Early access to new features and resources launched by Serial Marketers

There’s much more planned, so as more people subscribe, it will contribute to an even richer roadmap that everyone in the community will benefit from.

I thought of offering that and wrote all the offer details. But most didn’t make sense for someone who would join for a month or two and then leave; the benefits make much more sense for someone who will be in the group for months if not years.

I won’t rule out adding a monthly plan down the road, but it likely will be minimal value compared to the annual and lifetime plans.

Because I want to.

Okay, you deserve a better response.

For two years, Serial Marketers has been a hobby. As the community grows, so does my time investment. That’s all because I want to spend time doing this, and if I could, I’d spend all my time doing this.

Along the way, I’ve received messages on an increasingly frequent basis from people who are deriving a ton of value from it. I love that. I’m thrilled every time I hear about someone hiring others in the group, sourcing tech or service recommendations, connecting with others in the group, learning something new, and saving time.

I want to build on that and create new ways for members to derive value. I’ve started to invest in more resources behind the scenes. We have some talented freelancers around the world contributing in ways such as editing the newsletter, creating marketing automations, and web design and development.

Most of it though will go toward four areas:

  • Additional freelance staff, and more hours from existing staff
  • Product development
  • Tech subscriptions (Trello, Zapier, Mailchimp, and more; I love recommendations too)
  • Marketing and advertising (this makes sense for a marketing community, right?)

If there are ways you’d like to contribute to any of this, please let me know. Even if something isn’t feasible immediately, maybe there are other opportunities coming up.

No. There is a private channel for premium members to help communicate with them and roll out access to new features. For most purposes day-to-day, it won’t be clear to anyone who’s a premium member.

The rate of the annual plan may increase over time.

Weekly Video Series

It’s an interactive gathering where Serial Marketers members can learn from a featured guest – usually about marketing-focused topics but sometimes broader business and life issues. Serial Marketers founder David Berkowitz hosts every edition.

Serial Marketers is a 2,000-member professional community that interacts mostly over Slack, but also using Upstream, Zoom, email, and proprietary web experiences. Members most actively seek and share jobs and gigs, get tech and service recommendations, build their networks, and support each other any way they can.

They take place every Tuesday at 3pm EST / 12pm PST .

We are working on getting language you can use across social channels. We currently promote this most extensively to members through Slack, our email newsletter, and our private members-only Meetup group (as a community member or speaker, you’re welcome to join it).

The session is live with member participation. All sessions are recorded and available on-demand for premium members of the community.

Your choice. Some speakers include 5-15 minutes of slides. You’re welcome to share your screen for any or all of the session, whether for live demos, slides, or any other visual aids. Most speakers opt for a fireside chat with the host, David Berkowitz, and encourage participation from the members present.

The whole session lasts one hour.

If you want to chat before, that’s fine, but most speakers choose not to.

Upstream SpeedUp

Upstream is an app to host commuities like Serial Marketers to offer speed networking events, guest speakers, office hours, and more.

Events are typically 30-minute sessions where you meet four different people for five minutes each over view. There is sometimes a guest speaker at the beginning.

Go to www.upstreamapp.com, register, and find the Serial Marketers group in the directory. Then request access, and David will let you in.

Every day or two, I review member requests and let in community members. If you requested to join and it has taken longer than that, check with David.

  • Join the Upstream group. You can see listings under the Events tab.
  • Read the weekly community email newsletter.
  • Follow the #events channel in Slack.
  • Check out the Serial Marketers calendar at https://serialmarketers.net/events/ .

No, these are free. You don’t need to be a Premium member either.

Add as much info as possible, including your bio, email

Upstream events work on iPhone, Android, and the web.

You’ll meet members of the Serial Marketers community, or potentially others who request to join on Upstream and are vetted so that they belong in this group.

No, you’re matched with members of the community who show up to that event. It’s not ‘random’ in the sense of

Yes! You should browse them. There are several that are likely relevant for you covering topics like marketing, business development, networking, startups, and more.

$CMO Marketing Coin

To learn more about Creator Coins and their originator, Rally.io, I recommend visiting Rally’s FAQ page. It goes much deeper into how it works. This page focuses on the applications of it using $CMO.

It’s the Marketing Coin housed on Rally.io that is helping create an economy within Serial Marketers.

It’s a platform for hosting Creator Coins. Rally’s coins are based on Ethereum and are traded on other exchanges. Creator coins’ value are pegged to Rally’s value. Again, read Rally’s FAQ pages fore more.

Generally, it’s people with audiences and communities. Creators like Clubhouse moderators and Twitch streamers are common, but there are a number of business professionals too.

We’ll share a mormal menu, but here are a few ideas:

  • Tip members of the community $CMO coins when they’re helpful in some way (you can use the #kudos channel as well)
  • Donate coins back to the community through David’s account (dberkowitz)
  • You’ll soon be able to purchase upgrades like Premium membership and certain kinds of sponsorship with coins

Absolutely. You can do this yourself already — just request, say, 10 $CMO, and then you’ll mention someone on your podcast or in your newsletter. Or allow someone to book an hour of time with you for a certain amount of $CMO.

Yes. $CMO is tied to Rally’s coin which is built on Ethereum. It does have a dollar value that fluctuates constantly. Each Creator Coin has its own value.

Yes, you can. Rally will pay dividends to creators whose members currently hold a certain threshold of coins, so then all members benefit — yourself included. It is still very early, so there is some upside to holding. But you can convert $CMO to Rally tokens and cash out. Note there will be limits to how much you can cash out via certain methods, and there will be various fees depending on the method.

EXAMPLE VIA LEO:

David Berkowitz

10:27 AM

@Leo Morejon / MoreLeo created a site with a demo version of how $CMO can be integrated into other sites. Basically, I set up campaigns in Rally and then transfer payments over, while giving the originator a premium to make it worth their while. I’ll give more generous bounties initially to make it worth it if you test this out, so DM me if you have an idea for something you want to charge for, and I’ll set it up. The price you charge can either be in $CMO or in USD (like Leo did). If it’s $CMO, the USD price will just vary, or vice versa for CMO.Ultimately, the benefit for all is that as more people own $CMO, Rally will pay out rewards to holders of the coins like an added dividend. I wouldn’t use this for something you’re counting on for your livelihood, as this is way too early for that. But for something where you want to test out new offerings and payment methods while dabbling in using blockchain-based payments that also support all the community’s coinholders, then it could be of interest and maybe even pretty profitable, as the coin value has gone up quite a bit from when it was announced.
