On February 1st, 2012 the following changes will take place.
The price of a ClixGrid ad will go from $15.00 to $17.00.
The price of a Premium upgrade will go from $14.95 to $17.00
The price of a 2-year Premium upgrade will go from $26.95 to $30.00
I am sure you are wondering why we are raising these prices and I will explain this to you. I will start with ClixGrid.
Since the re-launch or ClixGrid in March last year, when we set the price at $15, ads have been receiving more and more traffic, averaging 20% more!
With our recent changes to the game even more and more members have been playing. This means yet even more traffic and more prizes being given.
To compensate for this, we will be raising the price by $2.00 which allows us to increase the prize pool by 20% while only raising its cost by 13%. With this change there will be even more prizes to give out with higher odds of winning, and again more traffic!
ClixSense still retains the lowest Premium cost of any of the major PTC companies online. Some charge 5 times more than we do, while others charge a monthly fee to upgrade. At $14.95 a year, we actually lose money on every upgrade.
As you know, with a Premium upgrade we guarantee you 4 premium ads per day. If you were to multiply $0.04 x 365 days, that works out to $14.60 just in guaranteed ads. Not to mention payment processor fees, upgrade commissions (which can be as high as $9.00 depending on how deep your downline is), the 100 guaranteed bonus ads we give you (totaling $1.00), downline click commissions paid on guaranteed ads, and the $0.25 signup commission we pay for referrals you bring to us.
So as you can see, we give away more than what the cost is to you. We feel a small $2.05 price increase is more than justified.
We are not just taking, we will be giving you something back. We will increase the referral signup commission from $0.25 to $0.50 for all upgraded members. This includes all currently upgraded members. You only need to refer 4 active referrals to pay for the price increase.
