to become a Story~Teller
First, see how we can help and let us know your interests and questions. We ask for some broad details allowing a response tailored to your circumstances. Then, your steps to become a Story~Teller are explained.
Afterwards, give us the specifics of what is to appear in your story. A tool is provided for that purpose. There are a few required components; they establish a story’s credibility. Beyond that, using numerous choices of style, whether it be audio/video clips, charts, text, photos, etc., you determine your story’s content.
Story~Tellers’ costs are modest. Publishing of your story is free! The Basic plan provides an opportunity to update your story and engage with your visitors – only $2 monthly paid annually. The Fixed-Fee option allows more opportunities to update your story and more space to display media like photos and audio. As implied in its name, the Fixed-Fee plan bears a frozen feature! Meaning, if it becomes necessary to increase that subscription rate, the change does not apply to your published story – just new ones. Also, it is renewable any year at your option. A subscriber is at liberty to move from one subscription type to the other. The Fixed-Fee plan alternative is just $4 monthly paid annually. A one-time fee makes it possible for visitors to a memorial/marker site to jump into its story using a smartphone camera; having the benefit of your story at hand, their visits come to life! There are other valuable optional services and features which do bear a charge, although many are built into the Fixed-Fee plan.
~ Have interest in an existing story?
A Story~Teller of a published story may choose to relinquish that key role for a variety of reasons. Hold a place in line to assume it once it becomes available.
Let us know now – it is first come, first serve. Your priority will be established. Should the story become “inactive”, or if the Story~Teller elects to hide the story from view (or another possibility is when the active Story~Teller who has not designated a Succeeding Story~Teller desires to transfer control), you will be in line to be its Story~Teller.
