Method Update

First and foremost thank you all for you interest in Method and your patience.
We are very excited to announce that the studio is finally ready for occupancy and Method will be moving in this month. One step closer to launch!
After months of collecting your suggestions and weighing the pros and cons of many different delivery methods, Jason and I have decided to go Video. This format will not only allow us to give a live visual demonstration of each finish, but will allow us the opportunity to talk through the process and interject our experiences and tips without time restraint. In short, we can pass along much more information this way.
Subscribers to Method “The nuts and bolts of decorative finishing” will have unlimited access to streaming video of each months five finish Methods. At end of each month the videos will be moved to the Method archive and will become available for individual purchase by non subscription members . Subscribers will automatically have unlimited access to all Method videos produced after the date of subscription. Archived Methods form prior to the subscriber’s subscription date will be available to them at discounted price. Once a Method is purchased either through subscription or individual purchase, it will be available for unlimited viewing.
Our Methods will be produced using the full spectrum of product available. Not only will we give you the recipe and products we used for each finish, we will give you a list of the comparable products from other lines that could be used in their place. Our resource center will be complete with product information and specs and will include a product crossover diagram. Method will diligently seek out new lines and due the leg work for you.
As with any new business we are constantly tweaking our vision and working to create a system that delivers the most value to you our subscriber. We are still working on the pricing structure for both the subscription and the individual purchases and we are developing a plan to offer a high resolution picture of each method packaged in fashion designed to serve as a portfolio ready sales tool. Also on the table is a plan to offer our subscribers the opportunity to produce and sell pay per view videos of their own finishes.
Please continue to be patient with us as we develop this new approach to instruction and portfolio enhancement. Our projected launch date is 06/01/09. We may change a little here or there and we definitely have much more to reveal, but our intent and mission remains the same. To deliver a broader educational and inspirational form of instruction not tied to one product line, but promoting all the qualities lines available to the decorative artists.
Thank you
Anthony and Jason
