I just created a hypothetical and realistic DDWA Member “Year In The Life” of redeeming benefits of membership.
And with it, a Membership Cost vs Membership Benefits Savings scenario with bar charts.
I’ve implemented all the benefits of membership and spread them out over a calendar year.
I use the conservative assumption that members will take advantage of one benefit per month.
Obviously, if you take advantage of benefits more often, your savings go up.
Your cost is set at $5/month based on an annual $60 membership fee.
All the hypotheticals below are based on Members-Only benefits. Subscribers to the free newsletter hear about these, but they don’t enjoy the savings…until they join!

Check out the month-by-month cost vs savings chart then connect each month with the story after that. The BIG NUMBER, the annual savings received with membership, is at the end.
