For example, I own a program that I launched a couple of years ago. I think I already posted this example
in regards to this same question before.
Here is what I did with my program....I charged a one time fee to go into sequential rotation. The funds
people pay, cover the paid advertising costs. Keep in mind, I am not referring to ClixSense at all. This is
in regards to a totally different program. I understood the math impossibility (believe it or not, most people
don't) before I ever launched it. So that was something I had to think on and see if I could not do something
about it. What I came up with was a good faith policy. Therefore, what members needed to do was make
their one time payment PLUS make a donation of at least $1 per month. That would keep money flowing
in monthly from the small donation, which would keep at least some paid advertising every month going.
However, there was problems with that, that I did not foresee. One big problem is, the $1 is mostly eat
up by the payment processor. So even tho I wanted to keep the amount a member would donate, small,
it was too small. The second problem was trying to make a good faith donation work. Some members
would donate and most wouldn't. Even tho I requested they make a higher donation for example $12
for an entire year instead of $1 per month, that didn't work either. You want to help people but unfortunately
they don't want to help you back.
Now you might say, why not charge a monthly fee or even an automatic subscription for the donate
end? Well, either way you go with a forced monthly payment, you are going to be dealing with constant
dropouts. The program which it is based is only $13 per month....tack on a one time fee for the rotator
of $20 and a monthly donate of say $3. People are impatient and they won't keep paying if they don't
see immediate results.
It was actually an enormous amount of work because I would post all rotator stats for every member,
every month. I would also have to review and check every link in the rotator to make sure the member
was still active...you don't want dead links especially when paying for advertising.
So what that guy is doing, simply does NOT work any way you look at it. AND the more he puts into the
rotator, the more difficult the spread. Think of butter. Take one teaspoon of butter and see how far it
goes on an entire loaf of bread.
You got to use common sense. Take your money and go use it for advertising yourself. Why bother to
pay someone when you don't even know if he has your link in the rotator or not or how long he will truly
advertise it or anything?
There are people that prey on members of a program by creating something or some way to get their
money by making promises that they may not be able to keep. Some people deliberately see the weakness
and make it so easy for people to hand their money over to them. I'm not saying the guy is good or bad
or anything negative about him per se cause I don't know him nor his intentions. I'm just telling you
straight up, it don't work.....never forget the teaspoon of butter to a loaf of bread.
