No, it’s not Facebook question of the week time.

So why the video, you ask?

Because it’s here! It’s finally here.

The launch of Spin Sucks Pro.

Yesterday was, um, challenging (to say the least) and, at 5:00, we decided it was better to wait until this morning than to launch after everyone had gone home for the night.

It’s not perfect. You could say we’re still in beta. The user experience is not quite where we want it to be yet, but we know some of that will come as you begin to participate in the community and consume the content.

There are still some kinks in the navigation and some of the curriculum isn’t loading correctly. But we’re working to fix that stuff immediately.

In fact, you still can’t go to to check things out. Instead, we have a workaround while we wait for IP addresses and DNS servers and propagating and stuff I don’t understand to work. But we thought it was better to give you something than tell you it was going to be another week.

So you can click here and be taken to the live site.

What we’d love your input on is, well, everything.

A few things to note:

  • The home page has some highlights of things happening within the site (discussions and most popular content, for instance), but you can’t access it unless you are a member of the community.
  • You do have to register (it’s free and easy) to get access to the free content. Once inside (and I’m sorry for all of the information it asks for – we’re changing that next week), you’ll be able to access recommended resources and the free trial content. I know some of you won’t like registering, but those are the rules if you want the free stuff.
  • The blog will always remain free. It will always be here and we have an RSS feed to it on Spin Sucks Pro.
  • We are giving an early adopter rate of $50 per month, which is the same price as our webinars so take advantage (normal price is $85 per month for each tract; digital is the only tract available right now).
  • As early as next week, we’ll let you lock in your $50 per month price, if you commit to six months or a year. If you don’t commit, your price will jump to $85 per month on June 1.

So, here it is…Spin Sucks Pro (and, if you can’t view the video in your Reader and you’re DYING to watch me talk for three minutes, you can click here and it will magically appear).
