I Like The Lifetime Membership Because You Only Pay One Time & Get Monthly Credits & You Can Cashout At A lower Rate.

I agree with Garrett, that safelists are part of a business, not the whole business.

 

I like Life Time memberships as compared to free member because the more I can mail out the more my ads get seen.

Usually a free member does not get to mail out as often as an upgraded member, plus clicking for credits is so

time consuming and taxing on my data package with my server. And depending on how many mailers you belong to

as a free member, it takes up a lot of time. So yes time is money.

 

As a Life Time Member, I think it would be important to click for some credits, not because you need them but because

you belong to the site and it keeps the site going.

 

Since I do not own a Safe List my thoughts are that if a member takes a Life Time membership, they may be more likely to

promote that site to get referrals who most likely will not upgrade to Life because it was to expensive, or maybe not offered at that time

or satisfied to take a lower upgrade to suit their budget.

 

I do not see Life Time Memberships offered all the time so when they are offered as a OTO once in awhile it isn't all members

who grab it at that time and I would think the owner would enjoy that lump some of money.

Where you can get a lifetime upgrade at a good site they are really valuable. But generally I avoid them - especially the ones where the numbers don't add up.

 

Some questions to consider before taking a lifetime upgrade offer:

 

If they sell lifetime upgrades, and upgraded members get x thousand credits each month, are there going to be enough free members etc. for the site to deliver that volume of hits or emails each month?

 

Lifetime upgrades means no more income from the members who take the lifetime offer, so are there enough other paying members to cover the site's costs like hosting, commission payments etc?

I have upgrades in most of the mailiing sites owned by Marty Petrizza, with more of hers on my "wish list" for this year. I've had good residual income from all of them, and you even pick up a bit of cash if you're regularly clicking emails. I still have spending referrals in Email Hog, years after recruiting them, so that's my favourite - people spend money where they're getting value

I prefer the one time upgrades and usually go that way. On some sites that I am not sure about I take a monthly for a month or two to try it out and then either leave the site or get the lifetime. Of course I have been burned a few times with sites closing but that's always a risk. If you do the research on the site first to be sure that it is worth it, the risk is usually worth it.

Sorry that you feel that way. I can't count the many sites that I have joined thru the many years that have gone offline without a warning or trace.

 

But, I don't let that stop me from upgrading to lifetime if it's a great offer.

 

As they say, you win some and lose some. I also assume that you don't go to Vegas. :)

The safest thing I think, if you don't want to spend money on a lifetime and see the site disappear, is to put the site to a test of time. If the site launched and has been around a year, then you have a decent chance it is sticking around, if it has been around 2 years then even better, if 3 or more years and the site is still active then it is excellent odds and a lifetime is probably wise if they offer it.

 

Many many sites launch and only after 2 or 3 months their activity is very low, those are many sites that sell lifetimes, so in this case don't get caught up in the hype of the launch unless you think it is worth spending that money to advertise during the hype phase - which just may be worth it if you can get a ROI. You can also use it for free until the site proves itself through time... the good owners will keep advertising their site and bringing in new members.

I agree with what you stated Darren but there are exceptions when a site seems a good lifetime candidate.

 

Currently High Hits is running a lifetime, or at least I have been getting emails about it.  This is one I would NOT pick up

because Laura (site owner) has basically given the reins to Louise (partner) who I trust no longer.

 

When Louise owned Hits Booster Pro, I put in a payment request that went unanswered for many months or possibly a

year or more.  I contacted admin several times via support ticket, site admin contact, and even FB; all without a single

response.  And my request was not an isolated incident.  I have found a few surfers with the same problem and I wasn't

even looking.

 

In fact, I thought Louise was out of the TE game since she sold HBP and the joint TE she had with Laura.  And now a

couple months after that last site's sale Louise starts to run High Hits while Laura is busy with other projects.  Louise

has proven to me to be unreliable at best.

 

Btw, both High Hits and Hits Booster Pro have been around for many years so we are not talking newbie owners here.

 

The KRM sites are also currently running lifetime upgrades if you get the itch.  These sites have survived the test of

time (and PP): Dragon Surf, Tezak Traffic Power, Traffic Splash, and Fast Easy Traffic.  Not sure how long they will

offer them, perhaps just a Valentines Day special.

Louise is totally untrustworthy - sell a bunch of lifetime subscriptions claiming a 'Valentines Day Special' and then sell the site.

 

But at least if you purchase now, you will save yourself "50 - 70 %".  :lol:
