Premium Members: Tell Us Your Wishlist

Mike Rankin, our editor-in-chief, just sent out his quarterly newsletter, Premium News (we’re quite literal here) for Premium members of You’re a Premium member if you or your company paid for a subscription to the site and so you reap all the benefits: the monthly InDesign Magazine (and access to 13 years of back issues), the Premium Template of the Month, discounts for conferences, our private member-only forum, and more.

Well, not that much more, to be honest, and so that’s why I’m writing, to call out a particular blurb in Mike’s Premium News that went out on Tuesday, titled “What Should We Add to the Premium Membership?” We really want our premium members to read that story, and fill out the questionnaire it links to.

The idea is that Mike, David, and I want to keep publishing free articles and goodies, but to support the site (and our staff), we want make a paid subscription to so incredibly valuable that every InDesign user wants to join, and no one drops their membership, ever, they just pass it on to their relatives in their will. But to get there, we need to know: What other benefits or features of your paid membership would you like to see?  What would make it a no-brainer to join?

The questionnaire that Mike links to is asking for your wishlist, premium members. It’s very short, just five questions, and it has a field for comments. I can’t put the link to it here, because (no offense) we specifically only want to hear from premium members for this survey. Free members, or those just passing through, if you have ideas, I would love to hear what you say in the comments section below!

So folks, if you’re a paid subscriber, please check your email for the newsletter, which went out Tuesday afternoon, July 11, with the Subject line, “InDesignSecrets Premium News and Wishlist Survey – Summer 2017” and was sent by And if you’ve already filled it out, thank you!

  1. I can never remember my password. The system won’t allow you to create a medium password – so I always have to come up with a very unique and complex one. And every time I go to login to the site I can’t remember how to get in.

    Makes accessing the Premium content more difficult for me.

    I don’t know what the answer is.

  2. Thanks for those, did not know about them.

    I mentioned before an App would be great. It could be only for Premium Members, and list articles, searching, perhaps additional Lynda content, access to magazines – searching across them, notifications of new articles (currently I check most days for a new article or find out on social media). I don’t know if the InDesign Magazine could be embedded in the app for members.

    Perhaps link to different sister sites, like Epub or Creative Pro or InCopy articles – there’s lots and lots of possibilities.

    Even perhaps possible discounts on books written by the lovely authors here – or access to content at Max – or other conferences etc.
