Pausing and discontinuing your membership programme

What to do if you want to take a break from running your membership programme.

⏸️ Pausing your membership programme

There is currently no function for creators to temporarily pause a membership programme, but it is still possible to take a break or reduce your membership offerings.

Here are two strategies other creators have had success with.

  • If you no longer want to offer members-only content, but still produce free content, you can ask your members to support you for that work

  • If you need to pause all content creation for a while with the view of restarting in the near future, you can ask your members to keep up with their support. To incentivise them to stick with you, you could promise them some bonus or surprise content when you are back in action.

In our experience, fans are more than happy to support creators financially just because they love their work, they don’t need the promise of extra content.

They are also willing to support you through times of lower content production, if they know it will help you to resume your work at a later point.
