Become a Philly Views Member

Since our launch earlier this year, there’s been a ton of positive feedback and support from readers, and Philly Views has been looking at ways to take this relationship to the next level. See a list of current members.

It’s hard to sustain a local news site, to find where we fit in, to carve out our own little corner of the internet. Our promise from the jump was to give you a resource that augments your experience living in this wonderful city. We want to sustain and grow that, to improve what we do so we can continue to deliver on that promise, and then some.

Well, now there’s one thing you can do to make sure we keep moving forward. You can become a member of Philly Views.

Look, we know how it is. We might be a small part of your life. You already subscribe to Netflix, Spotify, Amazon Prime, and whatever else. We live in the same reality. We know that the vast majority of Philly Views readers will not become members.

But we gotta ask. If you like what we do and want us to continue to produce, then why don’t we partner up and do it together?

It’s not just take, take, take with us. In addition to feeling good about contributing to a resource you love, you’ll get some cool stuff.

  • T-shirt and Sticker

    You’ll get one of our high-quality Philly Views T-shirts (designed and produced right here in Philly) as well as a sticker to slap on your laptop, some bar bathroom, or just to hold as a keepsake. All of this will arrive on your doorstep with a customized thank you note from our staff.

  • Exclusive Content

    Members will have access to content that the general readership won’t be able to see. This includes a members-only newsletter with exclusive information, deals, and discounts from local Philly Views partners. In addition to this, you’ll receive invites to Philly Views partner events all over the city.

  • Members-Only Events

    Who doesn’t like a free drink? Members will be able to attend events organized by Philly Views. There will be at least four of these per year, and you’ll get a free drink at each of them (plus all those appetizers being passed around). The focus of these events will be for like-minded, proud Philadelphians to mingle and meet new folks with similar interests.

  • Members Page Listing

    We like to recognize the people who support us. You’ll be listed on our members page, along with your Twitter handle if you’d like. These members will be listed in the order that they signed up. Think of it as contributing a brick or a bench to a stadium or a park. We’re a digital structure, and members can help us build it from the ground up. Check out a list of our current members here.

  • Member-Contributed Content

    When something big happens in Philly public discourse, you’ll have a chance to weigh in. We’ll ask members to contribute their thoughts, and publish them as an article on the site. We know Philadelphians like to make their opinions known. Well, here’s your chance.

  • Fun Surprises

    We like surprises. If you have a birthday, anniversary, something or someone you want to recognize, send it along. We’ll include in our members-only newsletter. We’re in the business of building communities and we want to keep members connected.
