Written Word Media members have access to a member portal, which is their entryway to book promotions and member benefits.

In this post, we’ll walk-through different sections of the member portal, how members can use them, and what you can expect when you become a Free, Gold or Platinum member.

Some portions of the member portal are only available to Gold and Platinum members. Other sections are available to all membership levels, including Free. Visit this page for membership details & pricing, or keep reading for information on the member portal.

 

Home

The first screen you will see in your member portal is the home screen.

This screen will look different based on your membership level. The above example for a Gold or Platinum member shows a featured partner discount, and the credit tracker which shows how much the member has saved on promos in the past year.

Free members will not see these blocks because  credits and exclusive discounts  are premium  (Gold or Platinum membership) features.

Instead, A Free member will only see the two blocks on their home screen. On the left, a promotions tracker that lists upcoming and past promotions, so members can easily track their marketing efforts. On the right, a carousel that shows different promo options, invites, or informational blog posts.

All members are also invited to our private author Facebook group (should we link this here or only allow access from the portal?) and can access it or request to join via their home screen.

In summary, the home screen serves as a dashboard for all members to easily see their scheduled and past promotions and is a great place for premium members to track their credit usage.

The Books tab is where you can add your books to your account. There are two primary benefits of doing this are:

1) You can easily track how many times you’ve promoted a given title.
