From a user's perspective the lifetime upgrades are obviously better options as you get more advertising and you pay once only. I'd rather go that way..

 

When I first took lifetime upgrades, I thought like that.  The problem is so many new site owners get in over their head then close down.

 

I don't expect the site be around my lifetime but at least provide a few years of benefit.  I guess owner reputation is the best attribute to

determine site longevity.

IT seems that a new rule to choice a site to purchase a lifetime upgrade or yearly upgrades is paypal availability. Most of the sites that  get their Pp account frozen turn in a non sustainable state.

That include ptcs too.

Are you saying don't upgrade in sites that accept PayPal?

Yep.

BIG BIG HIT because of Paypal, regarding anything "traffic generating" niche.

 

I have removed everything related to them besides my dating site but i'm thinking about removing them!

No more lifetime upgrades for me.  Everyone of them has gone under or they stopped growing!

So, you prefer to pay Monthly, Semi-Annual, or Annual?

Yep, I have upgraded lifetime in a lot of programs that has gone under and stopped growing too!

But, I wouldn't hesitate to upgrade to lifetime member in a program that I thought had the potential to be great! :)

I would only do lifetime with a trusted owner who's site has been around for a while.  Also I don't do the monthly or yearly unless site is getting results and been around a while

I have been burnt several times with Lifetime Upgrades & will never buy another, with the exception of sites by Maryanne Myers, where I not only get great advertising but also get PAID regularly!

As we speak? No.... I didnt close any. I moved them to Pangea Group and gave several months notice on the ones that were moved there.

 

I'm glad that you left HotSpot Mailer, My #1 mailer that I use daily and often as a stand alone site.

 

I have been a member of HotSpot Mailer since 2009 and upgraded from day one. It has withstood the test of time! :)

It's gotten to the point where it is rare that I take an upgrade lifetime or not. And trying to pick a winner out of all that have started recently is difficult. I am sticking with the proven owners who have stood the test of time. (Maryanne M., Darren O., Marty P., and a few others).

I used to do lifetime upgrades, but have been burned too many times.  I have decided to stick with free and occasional small upgrades.  I guess it really depends on how much risk you are comfortable with!

As long as I'm surfing the net, I will be buying lifetime upgrades.

 

The opportunity of seeing and finding great looking programs seem endless! :)

I think lifetime upgrades gives you better control of your spendings! Specially if you are a member on many sites.
