This Might Be the Best Reason Yet to upgrade2635

I have listed up 10 reasons to upgrade to student level in a previous thread.

But, I think the below reason might be the best yet.

I spoke with the director of a local (Silicon Valley) school today.

They have a group of highly skilled high schoolers who code, build web sites, do special projects. And, they are looking for more projects to do ... for free. Doesn't cost us/you anything. And they can build up to enterprise quality websites, overseen by professionals in the fields.

The students are wanting the experience to build out their portfolios for college applications. We, you, get what you need in/on your web site. How cool is that?

Click to => Upgrade now. You know you want to.

Most universities offer similar type services... you could add in some marketing services also... and give students a complete package of website and marketing help for free.

@Steve How much 'free' stuff is too much?

It's all about perceived value... free has no value as you know... When I started out on my own in the nineties I tried to build my client base by giving stuff away... those where the hardest sales I ever made...

So will free websites attract more students?
Do your student packages need free stuff or can they stand on their own?
Will these be the students you want to attract as they want free stuff?
Would you be better off marketing your student packages better?
Would you be better off charging more and having fewer students?
Free brings with it lots of questions.

This is not a free website ... this is a free high-level website ... that requires a minimum investment. So, I guess it's not free... it's free to those who are at some level invested in learning.
