I guess this is a question mostly for site owners...but what's your opinion on Lifetime Upgrades please?

 

I see quite a few sites offer 'lifetime' deals and they are becoming increasingly popular.

 

Personally though I can't see how they can work from a business perspective.

 

I have quite a few loyal members that renew their yearly subscriptions and if they moved to a lifetime deal I would lose that income.

 

I'm guessing a lifetime offer would sell more but it would have to convert at something like 1 in 4 to replace the income from the yearly / monthly model.

 

I'm also thinking selling a lot of lifetime deals would hurt CTR and be bad for members.

 

There would be a lot more mail sent through the site (from the amount of Gold upgraded accounts) and it would reduce the amount of ads that members click on. Unless of course members can keep up with it all.

 

That's just my opinion though :)

 

There must be a good reason why owners offer lifetime deal and it would be great to get some feedback!

 

Actually it would be great to get some input from non site owners as well. I know some people prefer to pay for the smallest upgrade and run some tests before coming back with a bigger investment once the site has been proven to deliver.

 

Thanks

I love Lifetime Upgrades very much cause i don't have to Pay any Monthly Fee's and i can Promote the Single Product overtime and make 3x-5x in Profit very soon.

 

Yup as a Owners it's Good to Lock in Members to Monthly Deals and yet Customers do Prefer Lifetimes.

As the Work goes Customer are the King so it's Wise to have Lifetime Deals too but very Scarcely.

 

Maybe who knows they may Promote your Business and bring u a lot of Monthly Paying Customers.

So it's Good to have Lifetime with Large Price like 2-3 Years of Yearly Price as the Lifetime Price

Offer Lifetime to them as just OTO's after Signup and on Festive Seasons alone

As this would help Owners and Fellow Marketing Customers who would like to Promote Crazy :) to grab the Time Sensitive Offer if they want an Lifetime.

I prefer lifetime upgrades! I am in over 300 mailers and upgraded

in about half of them.

Wow! you're in 300 and upgraded in roughly half...I am curious as to how you structure your mailings John.  Do you send to all 150 six days per week? Do you have any tips or tricks that you've learned along the way that you wouldn't mind sharing with the community :)

one should be looking at Life time upgrades but only on sites where the payment record is impeccable and there are high chances that ownership of Te will not change hands.many times it happens that after selling lifetime upgrades ,the Te owner goes on to sell off his/her site and the new Te owner makes sweeping changes in terms and conditions.

So always tend to go for lifetime upgrades at known /reliable Te owner, obviously if you perceive the deal to be right. 

 

I also prefer having lifetime membership on sites but only on sites which are perceive to be offering good deal coupled with reliable owners

lifetime upgrades is great but only at sites that have proven themselves as honest paying sites. To many close their sites after collecting money for upgrades

Thanks for the input John :)

 

Yeah as a site owner you definitely have to find the right balance for payment options and also get right what the member is actually receiving for their money.

 

market101 also made a good point though in that you can buy a 'lifetime' deal only for the site to disappear a few weeks later.

 

I'm not a site owner of course, but as my "current" situation is not where I want it to be I am looking for lifetime offers in sites that I believe in, simply because I don't want monthly expenses.

 

When it comes to the balance I quoted you on, I think from a business perspective it is important not to be too rewarding, and also not to be rewarding too little to free members.

 

I think a good site should be decently rewarding for free members with a decent boost for upgraded members, going from a business perspective as you are interested in it might be important not to offer too much there.

 

When it comes to lifetime upgrades if you wouldn't like to offer them as a standard because it may hurt your success, consider black friday, christmas, any other special holidays (perhaps the date you started your site). This way those members that would never take a monthly (and might not even take yearly) might possibly just strike at that lifetime...

 

Of course I know very little about running a business, so taking advice from me might ruin you, let's hope that doesn't happend because I don't know which hole to hide in  :D

You were lucky to have a lake, there were a hundred and fifty of us living in a shoe box in the middle of the road.

Cardboard box?

Aye.

You were lucky!  :lol:

With rare exceptions, I stopped buying lifetime upgrades. I will take 3 or 6-months upgrades on occasion. Too many safelists are going out of business or being sold to other list owners who in turn are cannibalizing their existing lists. It is pointless to send 5,000 emails to get 1 click-thru. Consequently, I am reducing the number of lists to which I belong, which is currently 200+.

I do not do 'lifetime' with start-ups.  Too risky.  Many do not grow and others go under.  I have done several 'lifetime' with well known admins who have a long history and that has worked out quite well.

I think that would be okay for a LT if the site was great.

Hi Bruno,

 

How do your members earn it? :)

 

Hey! Im starting a contest from 1st of october to 1st of november on this first run to see how it goes.

 

You can find the link here: http://www.instantco...minicontest.php

 

I believe is a plausible way to earn a upgrade. Unlike other sites, I will not force members to join some site in order to get something, but this way, I think we are helping eachother, the more referrals they bring the likely the members are to make a sale and earn commissions, and building their downlines.

And I get to keep the site more active. I will see how it goes :)

Some people are not serious, is quite unfortunate as it creates a bad rep to other people.
