    Are the premium bhw forums filled with good content? Is it active? Do you consider it worth 97 dollars?

    I'm trying to figure out if I should upgrade.

    Honestly...

    If you want to donate, do it for these reasons:
    1. you love the forum and its worth $100 to you
    2. you want a blue name
    3. you want a few special features

    The forums were dead when I last was a jnr VIP, admittedly it was a while ago... but I doubt its changed much.

    Its worth $100 if you love the place and you want to improve your experience of the forum.

    If you think buying this membership will all of a sudden unlock secret shit which will make you money, you will be disappointed.

    Would like to know this as well :).


    Ps: You need 100 decent posts (+$97) in order to qualify for the upgrade.

    Put it this way. I would happily pay 5x what it currently costs to be jrVIP.

    Spent $97 for JnR VIP

    Earned over $1k in signature sales and free review copies of BHW services.

    The hidden forums are quiet but there's still some stuff to be learned from there.

    There are good methods. I am sure if you joined you would spend a full day at least going through all of the older methods and pick up some great advice. A lot of the methods still work, like most methods around here you just need to put your own twist on things and adapt a little.

    However the real gold lies in review copies. I hardly ever browse and seldom ask for review copies but I got over $700 worth of free services/ebooks that were amazing so yes, besides the other reasons of supporting this forum I think it is WELL worth the $97!!!

    Does Jr VIP have good secrets about craigslist? Main reason I wanted to become a Jr VIP. Need craigslist information.

    The Jr.Vip forum, not so good. A new post about every 3 months :D And no secret cool methods. BUUUT . you do have the perks of having a signature which can bring in soem $$ and the free review copies are worth it as well . So overall, it's all good baby.

    Just selling your sig space alone will earn a profit from jr vip not to mention if you have something to promote in your sig

    It is a bargain tbh. Here is why:

    1) You get a signature, which you can sell advertising space onto, which will make you several hundred dollars a year I believe if you do it right.

    2) You get access to people who want to give away review copies of their BHW service threads to JrVIPs.

    The forums are absolutely terrible, dead, provide no value at all IMHO.

    I donated what must've been 3, maybe 4, years in a row just for the sake of donating. I never bothered with selling signature space/review copies. I also was a "donor" that I paid an addition $100/year for, I'm not quite sure what that technically gave me either.

    Go for it! If you have only $100 for your IM venture, I would suggest read the forum more, stick to a method and make money. If you have enough, then go Jr. VIP

    You will surely make that $97 back from selling sig space, free reviews, and discounts

    i want to know more about this.because i see in membership page>Premium Membership> its says "Please note that this payment is NOT for Jr. VIP status. It may take up to 7 days for your payment to be processed! "
    So the $97 is for Donor,ok? then how to be a Jr. VIP? I want to know the detail.Thanks

    We can't divulge what is in there anyway so it's pointless asking for specifics. If you only want it for a particular set of methods though I think you have the wrong idea - as you can see from the replies there are many other benefits aside from the information aspect of jr VIP.

    It depends if you can afford it, I meant I can't at the moment, but after I starting earning some money it would be amazing, I mean you browse all these forums and learn from here for free, why not support the community a little?

    I'm happy being a Jr. VIP member, and I've definitely been benefited by being one. :) I'd also be happy to be a Regular member (not a Donor member) in the future, because BHW has always been like a second home for me. Being a BHW member over the years has been really satisfying experience for me, and when I paid for the Jr.VIP membership this year, I did it very willingly, despite the fact that when the $97 is converted into my local currency it still is a big amount for me. That explains why I feel so good about being a Jr VIP. :)

    Anyway, the amount I paid has been recovered within a month(!) of being Jr VIP, but that is a different and unimportant matter imho. :)
