    • New Prices In September

    • We Are Giving Lots of Notice

    • Our Current Programming Plans for 2023

These topics will be dealt with in more detail throughout this bulletin.

You Can Act Early and Save Money
Most subscribers don’t read these bulletins; I get it, and I understand. All of us are inundated with more information than we can process and none of us have time to read it all.

Last month I talked about inflation. I think inflation is a HUGE part of financial planning which is why I thought the subject was relevant for our subscribers. If you missed it, and if you are interested in that, you go back and read the June bulletin here:

The more specific point about inflation, that is related to Compulife, is that our prices have to go up. We want to give you the opportunity to lock in the old prices. Further, if you want to lock in for longer than one year, you can do that and get a 10 or 20 percent discount (for 2 and 3 year subscriptions respectively).

The rest of the bulletin will be about those new prices and the multi-year discounts. If you read it last month, this monthy is a repeat. I just want to make sure that no one misses the opportunity. Once we are past the deadline, the old prices will be GONE – history. Sorry, no exceptions.

New Prices In September
The new prices we are announcing will take effect with the renewal invoices that will be going out August 15th. August 15th invoices will be for software that has a subscription expiry date of September 30th. Prices on new sales of software will be increased on our websites in the first week of September. This means that your renewal prices will be higher than what you will see on our websites for 2 or 3 weeks.

If you are alert, and you are paying attention, we will honor the old price until the price increase on our website, but you must call us and tell us you want the OLD price and you must pay us that old price when you call. We will issue a credit for the difference and process your card at that moment. If you pay the new price and then read this information later, we are not going back and issuing a credit. That horse will be out of the barn, so to speak.

We Are Giving Lots of Notice
We are telling you about the price increases well in advance. The reason is simple. We are giving you the opportunity, as we have in the past, to pay in advance and lock in the old price by “topping up your subscription”. No matter what your current subscription expiry date is, you can add 12 months to it by paying the old price for your subscription. The only thing that we sell where you cannot “top up” your subscription is the purchase of “additional zip codes”. The exception to that are the “local zip codes” that you have, where those zip codes are invoiced at the same time and for the same period as your base subscription to the Windows software. Those zip codes you can top up.

We also offer 10% and 20% discounts to those software subscription to those who choose to buy 24 month or 36 month subscription (respectively). You can also take those discounts if you choose to “top up” and lock in the old prices before the price increases in September. Once the prices change and go up in September, the old prices are dead and gone.

Term4Sale Listing Prices are Also Going Up
This year, for the first time in a VERY long time, the prices for term4sale listing will also be going up. The fact is that we are increasingly having difficulty getting SOLID zip codes for new customers because all the really SOLID zip codes have been taken by current subscribers who participate at term4sale.

WHY is that?

The answer is quite simple: Term4Sale works. Subscriber using Term4Sale MAKE MONEY. And they are NOT spending a dollar and making a dollar, their return on investment (ROI) is much higher than that. Oh yes, you still have to work. You still have to “sell” the consumer which takes time. You still have to take and process an application. You still run into situation that the prospect doesn’t buy or buys from someone else. But the subscribers who participate heavily in Term4sale (and we have quite a few of those) know that it is the best source of un-prospected referral business they get from anywhere.

Compared with the cost of “leads” being sold by “lead vendors”, and by comparison with the quality of those leads, there is NO comparison. Most people who try buying leads spend hundreds and/or thousands of dollars before they discover that the ROI on leads, for the most part, is BS. The problem is that there is a steady influx of “new” agents who are ignorant and they won’t be less ignorant until they also spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on leads only to discover that the ROI is BS.

That is NOT Term4Sale.

So Term4Sale prices are going up also. Partly because of inflation but also because we have a shortage of solid zip codes to offer to new customers. Demand is now exceeding supply. We are still discussing what those price increases will be (and they will be moderate) but we are also discussing changing the limits for how many we will let any one customer buy. Because the prices for “additional” zip codes will NOT change until November 15th, we have more time to review that and we will keep you posted in future bulletins.

Our Current Programming Plans for 2023
The following is the current order for new work that we will be doing in 2023:

      • Introduction of New PC Version: CQS.EXE
      • Overhaul Of Current Product Data Files
    • Introduction of Compulife Mobile Plus (with Pick 12)

Anyone with questions about any of these upcoming projects can call Bob Barney to discuss:

(888) 798-3488

Please don’t email me essay questions, just call. If I’m not in, email me your phone number, I’ll call you.

These planned objectives will easily consume our programming time during the balance of this year and throughout 2023. The good news is that once the product data files have been converted, and we have introduced the new CQS.EXE, and upgraded our internet engine to use the new data files, Compulife will be turning it’s full attention to our web based, Compulife Mobile software. The long term goal is to have a web based product that does everything our PC based software does.
