It's estimated that our leads unsubscribe at a rate of 1.3 to 3% per day, those are the low quality leads like the ones in the level 3 submitter databases. The higher quality leads like in the level 1 and 2 submitters unsubscribe at a slower rate. We think it's because the level 1 members submit the most responsibly, the level 2 members submit somewhat resposibly, and the level 3 members submit so irresponsibly that more than 75% of their ads go directly into the trash.
To replace the leads that unsubscribe we have several revenue streams, a few of our methods for example are when our customers view and click on our other customer's pop-ups or their ad banners that interest them or those two big rotating ads at the bottom or the scrolling text ads or the scrolling clickable message at the top of the page. That's one reason we banned the use of pop-up blockers, it's in our Terms of Service policy.
We've given you so many ways to keep your submitters loaded with fresh leads and so few of you are taking advantage of it. Buying a lifetime membership to a submitter is not for "your" lifetime, I'm certainly not going to pay 35 years worth of hosting because you live to be 90 and you paid us $14.95 - a lifetime membership is for the life of the submitter. When all the leads unsubscribe and they are not replaced using ad revenue the program is deemed to be dead. At this point we take it offline, sometimes we give you a replacement and sometimes not. It's because we are a business and not a charity, and if you're not going to generate ad revenue the way the system is set up to do then you can generate income by purchasing Hands Free Marketing like pop-up traffic, banner traffic, that kind of thing or maybe one of our other Marketing Products or Services.
Seeing a few people's ads isn't going to hurt you, we put all of our level 1 and 2 member's websites in our full page pop-up rotator at no cost to them, many of them don't even know we do it, wouldn't you like it if people saw your website and they were interested and they clicked on it? But unfortunately if you choose to do nothing then that's what you can expect in return, nothing.
I hope you do the right thing.
