Cash for membership status
« on: April 16, 2012, 04:13:06 pm »
I noticed that I went from Newbie to Jr. Member at some point in the last day and it got me thinking....how about a penny or 2 for each elevation in member status?  Unless there is already a reward for moving up in status that I'm not aware of....is there?

Just my 2 cents.  Thanks FC, you're great!!!   :heart:

i was thinking more in the lines of more surveys and offers for the higher you get. Maybe more value per survey.

There's no particular monetary reward currently offered for the number of posts made, (member status is based on that factor), beyond the $3 monthly posting bonus even the newest member can receive.

Since any bonus would have to come out of FC's revenues, you might want to offer some suggestions as to how that would benefit FC, (they are a business afterall).  Btw, 'keeping members happy' would entail offering bonuses for all manner of things too, (birthday bonuses, time on FC bonuses, bonus bonuses ...).
One can lead a horse to water however, if one holds the horse's head under, that horse will drown.

I don't know if there is a reward for that but it's a good ideal.

They'd have to monitor that though, to avoid rewarding people who are simply spamming, which could get complicated. 

Personally I'd rather be rewarded for being an active member of the site then be a frequent poster in this forum.  That doesn't really require as much monitoring and it encourages people to come by daily if they don't already.  I know of a few sites that have you click a button on the site to indicate you've stopped by or fill out a fun, 1 question survey that members have submitted.  Neither is all that complicated and you could reward people for being active X days straight or for being active the entire month or whatever.

Sounds like a great idea but that would open the door for short and non-helpful posts, people would just go for the high numbers instead of trying to keep this a quality site. I mean just look at me, i just like to talk a lot. lololol :bootyshake:

I see your point, but I'm wondering how do some of the other bonuses benefit FC, for example paid to post, weekend promotion, penny for your thoughts on daily surveys that don't qualify...?  I just think the more people are on the site, they see their money add up and they're more inclined to STAY on the site, and therefore do more offers and surveys.  Just sayin'  8)

Admittedly, the assumption is that FC staff make some determination of the cost/benefits ratio for FC to paying bonuses.  Generally, if such benefits are discerned as outweighing the costs of paying out a particular bonus, FC declines.  Conversely, if some benefit for doing so is perceived, (beyond that 'keep the members happy but, within limits' caveat), members receive bonuses.

I think that getting paid to move up in your membership status would be great... ;D

Thanks for all the comments!  I'm starting to learn a little more about this each day.

I was thinking about some extra cash per level. maybe 10% on offers, surveys at the top. whereas the lower levels get 2% or 5% bonus cash.

I think it's a nice idea.. I earn so much more here than other sites!! I guess for some it would take some patience etc for the monthly payout etc.
