I’m happy to say that I’m now able to open up to a wider audience with a lower subscription price, going from $10 to $5 monthly. I’ve been able to do this because I have added ads to the site, and revenue has been better than expected.
In addition, I’ve added two more options for those looking for a better deal and convenience. The annual subscription is just $48, a 20% discount from the monthly price. The lifetime plan is a one-time payment and has no end date. It will continue long past the three year price which I used to benchmark.
I’ve already given a rebate for members who have signed up earlier. It didn’t feel right to keep their money since I lowered the price quite soon. I’m still trying to work out how to cut out ads completely for members. I tried several different plugins but they don’t seem to work. But I’m sure I’ll be able to fix it, and I’ll do it manually if I have to.
