did you even read the full post?
In order to assist current yearly members in moving to LIFETIME, we have created a promo code that can be used to apply the FULL PRICE of your yearly membership towards a lifetime account. The promo code is "CHULIFEPROMO20". THIS PROMO CODE WILL EXPIRE ON OCT 31, 2013.
Obviously this change is sure to prompt many yearly members to switch to lifetime. While that generates some instant cash, for every yearly member that converts to lifetime you lose recurring revenue.
If every yearly member on this site converted to lifetime right now, you'd be ok for another year or 18 months, but then you'd be hoping and praying for a ton more yearly members since your lifetime members aren't providing you any recurring revenue anymore. Donations by lifetime members are nice, but you can't expect nor rely on them.
I would rather see something along the lines of a platinum yearly and platinum lifetime added to the current options. Maybe $70/year and $120 lifetime.
I hope you figure out a way to secure long-term recurring revenue streams. I don't believe the current lifetime-only perks are the answer, I think they are a problem. I'd hate to see this place see hard times.
Just my two cents, shared with nothing but respect and love for CH.
We have almost 12 years of historical data on our members. We know how many have purchased more than one year's subscription, how many have purchased one year or one month and never returned and how many users are completely new to the site on a daily basis. All of these things were taken into consideration.
So, please trust us that this is the right decision for the time being. Should we need to re-evaluate somewhere down the line, we will do so.
Don't you just love the many statistical apps available? I bet that made this choice and many others a lot easier.
and purchased lifetime from the very start if I remember correctly. Back then it was something like 40 US Dollars?
A total bargain, considering I have downloaded an estimated number of 300 or 400 + trainer files.
Please take that into consideration before you start whining about the cheapest site subscription on the internet, people.
This site charges you ONCE, not yearly or monthly, weekly, ONCE.
Even paid for several trainers and donated because I felt cheap to download for nuts and have these guys working their ass off for free.
This site deserves continuous support, unlike so many others.
Never, PW, Caliber, hope you guys will be even more successful.
