Promote For Free, or Push For Premium?

Last Update: October 16, 2019

Hey WA,

Today, I want to pose a question to the community, and see how many different answers I can get, as well as see how many of you go about this.

I want to talk about promoting WA, and how does those who are promoting WA go about it.

I am not talking about traffic strategies or anything like that. I am talking about when promoting it, do we offer it for free, or promote the premium sign-up right off the bat.

I was always under the impression, that it is good to promote it for free, this way they can get a taste of it and always upgrade.

I was also told that if they were serious when signing up that they would most likely upgrade anyway.

The reason I bring this up, is that I have had a month where I got the most referrals I have ever received, but not 1 went premium.

I was wondering if maybe I should just promote the premium membership, and for the discounted price, that more people would go premium from the start.

I am just curious as to how others have gone about this. There is nothing wrong with a Free offer, but people buy things from the start all the time also.

I have also been told it's just a numbers game, and to get the most free referrals as you could, and eventually the premiums will start to trickle in.

I am still promoting it for a free start, but I was curious about other more up front strategies about asking what I want from the beginning.

I may do some split testing, but I am very interested how the community feels about this topic, and how they have gone about this approach.

Thank You WA,

I always suggest they try it out with the free starter. Not much point them signing up to Premium and giving up after a month.

I usually just welcome everyone and when I see that they have made their goals, then I comment on that and recommend the Premium membership for more tools availability in which to make their goals possible.

I always try and stick to Helping people solve problems when you do that the rest will fall into place for those who are serious about improving their life.

I offer both, but tell them with the free choice they can learn if the company is a "fit" and if so, upgrade to Premium.

Sounds good, Thanks Fran!

I focus on free because once they see everything in action the move to upgrade occurs more often, and they have made a distinct choice.
