Welcoming the world to Goodberry

After some long weeks months, and extra late nights from John and Derek in particular, we’re thrilled to officially open the doors at Goodberry.net! We’re so proud of the hard work from our team, and determination to bring what we think is an incredibly valuable resource to so many churches in need of quality, cost-effective solutions to resource needs. By now, you’re probably familiar with what exactly Goodberry does, but if not, here’s a quick summarization. Goodberry offers over 50,000 Christian videos, books, and other resources for a rental (much like Netflix). Everything in the store is also available for purchase – at a great price. In addition to the monthly subscription or pay-as-you-go rental service, Goodberry will also have streaming services in the very near future.

The paint’s almost dry!

The doors are open, shelves are stocked and the party is starting! That said, we’re continually making Goodberry better and there are a couple of aspects of the user experience that will get increasingly polished in the next few days. Please “pardon the dust”, in the meantime, and if you run into any questions or problems please let us know right away! Above all, we pride ourselves on awesome customer service.

On behalf of the team here at Goodberry, welcome!

A new old idea: getting together

We’re a digital bunch. We bring web-powered magic to people all around the country so they can access resources they might not have been able to otherwise. Yet, in the midst of all of eBooks, pixels, and lines of code, we can’t help but feel there’s a “real life” component that would make it all that much better. So, today we’re launching Goodberry Meetups. It’s a time to come together (in person!) share stories of discipleship, insights on useful resources, and most of all, encourage each other. And, for our part, we’ll help facilitate the discussion with free pie and coffee. (What’s a get-together without good food?) Our first meetup will be here in Grand Rapids, but if you’re interested in starting something in your town, let us know! If you ARE here in GR, stop by:

You’re Invited: Thursday, June 6, 2013 at the Grand Traverse Pie Co.

Join us for our first Goodberry Meetup to share best practices, your favorite small group / bible study resources and stories about how God is moving within your small groups while enjoying free pie and coffee.

Who else will be there?

Small Group Attendees, Small Group Leaders & Facilitators/Coordinators, Bible Study Leaders/Teachers, Pastors & Church Leaders

Announcing: Goodberry Deals

Today we’re officially taking the covers off something we’ve been working on for the last few weeks… announcing: Goodberry Deals!

Goodberry Deals is a new way to easily find the best deals on Christian books, eBooks, DVDs, music, and more. How does it work? Our deals team is scouring the web for new deals and working directly with publishers to get special discounts – often not found anywhere else. We share the deals on deals.goodberry.net, and send out a Daily Deals email to our subscribers. You can sign up to get great deals on Christian books here on the Deals homepage, or follow us on Twitter @GoodberryDeals.

Really proud of our team, and on behalf of all of us, welcome to Goodberry Deals!
