Hi Alan,


For me, I don't waste my time or others time trying to get them to upgrade.


I focus on what I can do rather than what others can or will do.


The key is to keep the traffic coming it and let the owners of the site sell the benefits of upgrading.


I generate the traffic to the sites and the Admins close the sales! :)C





Hi Captain Kirk,



Thanks for your input. I started this topic a few weeks ago. I did not realize this topic has got this far.

A lot of heartfelt answers here but I feel the best answer is to deliver results to members who are not yet upgraded let them see that choosing to upgrade will allow them to scale whatever results they are getting at the free level can be scaled up i.e wider reach for example if am restricted to mail only 1000 members but am receiving a better than expected response from mailing the restricted list then maybe if I upgrade and am able to mail 10,000 instead of 1000 with a 25% click through rate plus sign ups and sales then who wouldn't be willing to upgrade their membership?


I see where a lot of programs are forcing you to upgrade when you actually not getting any result from being a free member - no quality traffic, no engagement, no sign ups and no sales so why should I upgrade? If your program delivers the sh*tty when it's free then why should members assume if better if I upgrade since am not receiving any good results being a free member?


On the other hand if upgrading to GOLD has all the whizz and bang effects and giving upgraded more than they expected then give the free members a taste of what the "good life" if they upgrade by offer a short trial of the upgraded membership for example a Thirty (30) Day trial option before they are charged for an upgrade. 


If your trial offer of the premium level of your program is in fact delivering more than the expectation of the members then the chance of getting them to upgrade is escalated since all will agree that your program is worth paying (since the value benefit exceeds the cost by perception).


If you offer a free trial of your premium membership and no one continues with the paid option then it's your fault your program sucks.

The solution is very easy. You simply need to upgrade yourself first and see if the upgrade is worth it.


Then...You should document your results and create a report showing your results.


When people see that you have upgraded and have seen good results from your upgrade, then they will be more likely to upgrade themselves.

Here is my two cents worth. I think that people need to look closely at what they are referring others to. Also there are so many ways to advertise out there. Make sure you are not wasting your time in free traffic systems. They usually will get little to no results. Ask yourself these questions.


  1. What value does the product or service really hold?  Is this a must-have product/service?
  2. Is there a large audience out there looking for your product/service? Learn who and how to target your audience. 
  3. Does the price point match the value? Do you think your product is a great value for yourself?
  4. Where are you advertising to get customers? Free traffic gets you Free results for the most part.

Hope that helps  :)

This is where you need to separate those that are testing the waters from those who actually want to better the financial status...


I find that by informing the user from the start that the money is in the upgrade and assure them that you will help and provide them with materials and advise on the best places which provide positive results is the way to go.


You are in it for the MONEY, not trying to be polite, Free is good but Upgrading means COMMISSIONS...


It takes money to make money on the internet.

There has been a lot of great advice on this topic. Especially from Mr. Clean.  I would like to address one more item.  The website.  Does the website do a great job of selling the idea? Does it make a good case for upgrading?  Listen, you were sold on the idea and I'm betting you were sold by what you saw on the website.  I try to choose websites that do these two things. I figure my job is to get people to see the site and it's the website's job to do the selling.  Of course once people join I stay in touch and encourage them to get people to see the website.  There are plenty of go-getters out there. They may not be on your 1st level, but they may show up on your 2nd or 3rd level.  When I see someone doing well in depth, I stay in touch with them. As a famous person once said, "People don't care how much you know; they want to know how much you care".
