A premier membership is required to sell your content
Step 1: Join Convene
If you don't already have a Convene account, create one. Start off joining the Convene Community that has content to help you get started.
Step 2: Find the community that best fits your content
Once you have joined and are logged in, click on Communities on the left menu to get a list of all the available communities. You can join as many Communities as you like for FREE. Each community has FREE, private, and paid content available.
Use this same Communities tab to switch between communities.
Don't see a community that fits your content - contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 3: Upgrade to Premier Membership
Make sure you are in the community you want to sell content in. The Premier Membership is only good for the Community you purchase it in - so double check you are actually in the community you want.
If you hit UPGRADE, you will be taken to a screen where you can purchase the Premier Membership so that you can create Premier groups.
You can create as many Premier groups as you like within the Community you purchased the membership. You can have a public first level group and offer paid subgroup areas, or you can have top level paid groups for each course you are offering. That is up to you.
Step 4: Creating your Premier Group
Note: You will be selecting a "Premier Group" when creating your group. This video will help you get started.
For more information and tutorial videos, go to the Getting Started Group for tutorial experiences. If you get stuck, use the group discussion board, and someone will be happy to help guide you.
