    I'm swinging back out of corporate marketing and sales to independent SEO and marketing through my LLC and I'm always looking for new connections and reputable suppliers. Is this Jr. VIP section/Donor Area (or whatever it's called) worth the cost?

    Thanks for any info!

    as with anything u only get out what u put in.
    sure theres the hidden vip section where the odd method is posted
    and where users creating new products offer trials for reviews
    but there is no magic $ button in there.

    most become a vip either donate to the forum or
    become a bst seller

    Noticing the theme here, I'm assuming that selling signature space more than pays for the annual fee. :D

    selling sig space depends on post count - how long uve been here - how active u are.
    620$x3 sig , but thats only once a year, still. all adds up

    Well it's just nice to give back also. I did it as way to say thanks for the guys who build and maintain the site. It's so cheap anyway :cool:

    Don't really know. I already got my membership worth in review copies. The first reason behind upgrading is just to support this forum directly. If it wasn't for BHW, who knows for whom I would be working right now.

    It's worth what you make of it. Some think It's worthless, some hail it as the thing that made them thousands.

    I think if you want to pursue IM full time, for a long time as a career then becoming more respected here isn't really something that you should sit around and ponder. Was reading a few weeks ago how a lot of these big and well respected marketing firms are simply fronts or middle men for a service they'll say they're doing. They'll overcharge a client and come on here and buy something (some assortment of services or even just 1), talk a lot of bull to the person and profit. Besides all that, there's some interesting people on here. So yes, worth it. Then you can rise up from that level too if you're really somebody unique (Exec levels etc.)
