Requirements

– Video footage of your classes – using video camera or phone (we are currently testing some inexpensive camera & lighting options)
– You may need a simple video compression app ($5)
– A Stripe or Paypal account (free – payments are less their small commissions for processing)
– A Vimeo Pro account (costs you approx $120 per year)

Costs

Original setup $520 + gst one off set-up fee
Ongoing hosting fee $120 per quarter
Ongoing Vimeo account costs $120 per year
We help you though the process of signing up for payments or use your exisiting Paypal or Stripe account.
You give us the login for your Vimeo account and we adjust all the settings required for you so you simply have to upload your videos.
Your webpages can have the same look and feel as your exisiting site (but you don’t need an exisiting website to use this system)
The system uses WordPress so you can easily add videos, edit and add content to your pages.
You also have a full admin to keep track of your subscribers.

Here’s how it works

– You open a Stripe or Paypal account to collect your payments – no cost here
– You open a Vimeo account to upload your videos to – upgrade it to a Plus account (approx $120pa)
– Pass both these log-in on to us and we will look after to configuration for you
(you can change your passwords after this if you wish)
– We will register a domain name eg something like myyogasclassesonline.com.au or similar
– We will set up a stand alone website with the required pages to run the system, house your videos and collect your payments
– You upload your video to Vimeo (1 or 2 per week for the “Pro” Vimeo account)
your videos are hidden from the internet in general, they cannot be downloaded or posted anywhere except for your website
– You have full access to your webpages to add the videos – a simple copy & paste process
– Promote your site however you wish
– Your visitors go to your site – join as a “Subscriber”
– They can join as weekly, monthly, annually – whatever timeframe you wish
– They make their payments and get an email receipt
– They are given instant access to your “Video Library”
– When the subscription ends the system generates an renewal invoice for your customer to renew
