Hello, C2 People:
Today we begin to offer new pricing choices for Trade Leaders.
Rather than our old, one-size-fits-all approach, in which you were required to pay a substantial up-front, non-refundable $120-dollar “Listing Fee” for each strategy you manage, starting today Trade Leaders will be able to select from a range of “Trade Leader Plans,” each at a different price point, with simple monthly billing for each choice.
You can see the new prices here: https://collective2.com/choose-plan
Some nice things
There are some nice things about the new Trade Leader plans. First, for those strategies being managed under the new plans, you’ll be able to reset your strategies as often as you like. Old track records are still available for study by potential subscribers, but a big benefit for trade leaders is that you don’t need to pay another $120 every time you try out a new strategy that doesn’t work out. Just archive/reset your old one.
In addition, under the new pricing, if you have no subscribers, you can turn your strategy’s public visibility “on” or “off” whenever you like:
The features described above – and the new Trade Leader Plans themselves – are available right now to all new C2 Members (or those members who haven’t yet taken the plunge and paid an old-fashioned Listing Fee for a strategy).
What about my Listing Fees?
If you’re an “old member,” (perhaps “long-time member” would be a less distressing choice of words) you’ll be able to continue using “legacy Listing Fees” for a while.
Of course all Listing Fees you’ve previously purchased will be honored. In addition, to help ease the transition to the new monthly model, you can continue to purchase legacy Listing Fees for any already-existing strategy. Listing Fees can be purchased until January 15, 2017 for any strategy created before today, December 8, 2016. And of course those listing fees will be honored until their expiration – so, in theory – strategy developers who are unsure about the new monthly Plans can stock up on listing fees and lock in the old pricing model for a while.
"I’m an ‘old member.’ Can I use the new Trade Leader Plans immediately if I want to?"
You are not required to stick exclusively with the old Listing Fee method. Anyone – even “old members” – can select one of the new monthly plans. Having a plan lets you manage one or more strategies. In addition, old members can can continue to use Listing Fees for their old strategies, while using the new pricing for their new strategies.
Please let me and the others on the C2 Team know if you have any questions, problems, or suggestions. Over the next few months, we plan to roll out many enhancements to C2, including a much-improved user experience.
As always, I need your help: your feedback and suggestions are immensely helpful to our small team. Please keep them coming. But be gentle. Be gentle.
