Our paid content project, which started more than a year ago, is developing well. The budget financing is stable and allows, on a small scale, certain freedoms. Since subscribers are added every month and their number has been growing continuously since the start, we are reducing the prices for regular readers. Although the blog has to cover the costs, it also runs as a solidarity project that tries to spread the burden over as many shoulders as possible.
Solidarity basic idea
The basic idea of solidarity works, that's great! Therefore, regular readers have been reading the blog cheaper for a few weeks, and access to our Saab Aero X Club is also cheaper.
The current price reduction is easily realized. When an existing subscription expires, each reader will receive a voucher code by email. It enables a 10% discount on the subsequent subscription. It doesn't matter whether you buy a ticket for just one month or become a member of the Saab Aero X Club for a whole year.
The discount is also independent of the term of the previously selected subscription, we always grant 10%.
However, the price reduction is not entirely new. It has been running in the background as an experiment for a few weeks. In a cautious test phase, we wanted to check the acceptance of the idea, which turned out to be gratifyingly high.
How do I get the discount code?
The respective discount code comes automatically with the e-mails reminding you of an expiring subscription to the e-mail address provided. If you have not received the email or your spam folder has swallowed the discount code, we will send you a final, friendly reminder 5 days after your membership has expired.
The price reduction is permanent if the positive development continues. The Saab Blog gives something back to its readers as a thank you for the support and the long-standing loyalty to Saab.
Because, it also has to be said, without the financing from the subscribers, the last Saab platform reporting daily would have long since entered Nordic Valhalla. The free content, which represents a kind of basic service for all those interested in Saab, would no longer exist either.
Full access to all editorial content costs 17 cents per day for the cheapest subscription. 10% less in the following year. Reading inexpensive Saab and rediscovering it every day is hardly possible. It would be nice if the principle of solidarity would continue to convince more subscribers in the future.
