Before you made your purchase and you were reading the sales page, you were presented with a link at the bottom of the page that would send you to our Terms Of Service Policy which is located here. Most people ignore the link, but we've done our part to be transparent and provide you with all the details related to your purchase before hand so you know exactly what our policies are and what is expected of you if you become a member.
If you decided to purchase from us you were immediately sent to the product registration page after your payment cleared. Here is one of our registration pages, here is another and here is another. There are many since we have hundreds of membership sites. At the bottom of the product registration form there is always a requirement where you are stating that you read, understood, and would comply with our Terms Of Service Policy.
Let's break down what it means to READ, UNDERSTAND, and COMPLY with the Terms Of Service Policy.
Below is a graph that shows the current number of people that are reading our mail, this screenshot was taken on February 17th, 2021. It shows that only 13.63% of our members are following the rules and reading our mail. That day we sent over 90,000 emails to our members and barely over 12,000 were read. Our Terms Of Service Policy requires members to read 2-3 emails a week. That means over 86% of our members are in violation of our Terms Of Service Policy and starting on May 1st, 2021 we will no longer be sending their ads.
The only reason I need to break it down like this and be blunt and direct about what's going on and what we're going to do about it is that I'm talking to the 86%. The people that can't read, they can't read the Terms of Service Policy, they can't read our daily letters, they can't read the submitter instructions about Submission Authorization Codes, they just can't read. The 14% that do read the rules and follow them are going to get better service and better submission quality because we won't have our leads burned up by the 86% that refuse to follow the rules.
It's important that people read the mail and purchase our products, this is a business and not a charity, we need money to pay bills like employees, the lease on the building, our massive power bill and the T-1 connection to our two servers. You do want leads in your submitters right? Leads cost money. If 86% of our members aren't reading the mail and making purchases then that lowers our revenue by 86% and we're going to pay the bills before we buy leads and if there's nothing left after the bills are paid then there's no money for leads. (This does not apply to subscription memberships, a portion of their monthly payment pays for their leads.)
In closing, let me say that if you checked that box, stating that you read, understood, and would comply with our Terms of Service Policy and you didn't actually read it like you told us you did, then you deserve what happens to you. If you haven't read the Terms Of Service Policy lately, a refresher will do you good since we update it all the time. It's located here. When we update it we post a notice in our daily letter.
