Join SOS Groups!

 

What exactly is SOS Groups?

Simply put; SOS Groups is a cost-sharing / sponsorship subscription solution. It’s designed to allow multiple people to subscribe for free, to the Premium subscription package with all the benefits, paid for by the Group Owner at half-off.

In-turn, the Group Owner gets their subscription and the subscriptions of their group members at a discount. If you want to take your involvement with Steel on Steel up a notch, and you know people who would benefit from a free Premium Steel on Steel membership, this is for you.

 

Who would benefit from using SOS Groups?

Who doesn’t benefit?

First, the group owner gets their subscription for half-off, then they only pay half price to sponsor others with a Premium online membership (with further discounts for increased group sizes). This means a new Group Owner would pay for two premium memberships for the price of one. Think of it as a “buy one, get one free” deal. Here are some likely scenarios for SOS Groups:

  • Two friends share a sub at half-price each, or one pays for the other at no increase in their rate.
  • A family member sponsors their kids, grand-kids, parents etc. at the 50% discount.
  • Church study groups or small classrooms can split the cost or have a Group Owner sponsor them.
  • A private office, church, or homeschool co-op can buy more members at deeper discounts.

 

Is it easy to become an SOS Groups Group Owner?

All you need to get started is to login to your account and click the ‘Manage Subscriptions’ link. From there, simply click the ‘Upgrade to Group Access’ button and choose a Group Subscription. Enter the size of your group (you+members) and complete the checkout.

Adding members is a snap; send the ‘Invite‘ link to anyone you want or add them manually using the ‘Add New Member‘ feature in ‘My Group‘. You can even print out a QR code for members to scan if you want to hand them a nice invitation or gift card. See our Help Page for more on QR codes.

If your group is full and you want to purchase more members, simply visit the ‘My Group‘ page and click the ‘Buy Additional Users‘ link. You can edit or delete unwanted or inactive members as well.

 

Couldn’t I just share my login information?

We strongly advise against it. Once the login information is out of your control, you could get locked out or have the password changed without you knowing it. If your shared login information is entered incorrectly into podcast apps, it can trigger an automated lock-out. You are also at risk of being restricted whenever the other person logs on. If they’ve entered the login info into a device, this login restriction can occur every few minutes.

The beauty of SOS Groups is that every group member has their own login info. They can login as much as they want, change password, account info etc. and it never affects the Group Owner or other members. In fact, members don’t even have to know each other to participate and if a member wants to share their login info, the risk is all theirs.
