just a thought??

In the past few wks I have started posting again, I see all the changes the RCIA has gone through. I think the changes are a good thing. I don't chime in that much on topics. I read a lot of posts and listen to the pros. I am still considered a guest on here and I plan on becoming a member. I just get the impression that I am being forced to become a member at times. I no there are others  that have a lot more posts than me and a lot more knowledge than I have on roof cleaning and arn't members yet. So for now I will be a guest and just read the posts. I do want to thank the RCIA for all It has done and all I have learned, I will become a member just not right now.

well you get the ability and Knowledge to become a professional roof cleaner and a lot more like how to run your business, rules and regs etc, I may not be a premium member as of yet but my reasons are my reasons. The RCIA is the best thing business wise I have ever come across.

true if you have a good business and no what you are doing then I agree with you. I on the other hand needed a lot of info to get things going in the right direction. I also like to read up on the new stuff being tried and tested out on the RCIA. Well good night to all have a great roof cleaning day tomorrow.

 Chris,

I met you in Tampa and I am really surprised of your opposition to RCIA at this point, why are you even here anymore. You have been on other forums cracking snide comments, I just don't get you. You don't see the value of being a premium because you have no idea what being a premium member is all about.

So I will let you and the other 2 guests your trying to derail some insight. We on the premium side host Talkshoes for Premium members that many times run into 12-1 am discussing equipment, networking, SEO, advertising, and many other things you will spend some hard core hours on the internet searching for the info.

Many of us premium members have done so much research already, so it is a jumpstart for getting your business up and running. We spend countless hours brainstorming new ideas collectivly and share ideas that enhance your processes and business.The more experienced assist the new guys on the block. We support and network on the forum, on the phone and through email. We are one big network and is growing everyday. We encourage the new guys to speak up and out if they have questions. All in all ask some of the new members that paid for a premium membership after one or two posts. Get their opinion not from me or someone who has no idea of the value. Send out a few pm's and see what others have to say.

If you choose to become certified you will need to be a premium membership to get started.

Oh and yeah there is the SEO factor.

Kim R

 Yeah so? The more the merrier!! Really Chris, we just want to be the only ones to be premium members... that is really an asinine statement. But I bet if we cut off premium memberships to be sold you would complain about that too.

Maybe thay want to join? what a concept huh?

i'd just like to say i stumbled upon the RCIA about 10 months ago and have spent countless hours reading reading reading, and postin when i felt i had something to add that was worth adding. though i financially am not in the position to let go of a 100 bucks right now, i will be spending it soon. if nothing else, i already owe it to the rcia for what i've learned. i had no idea about roof cleaning before i found the RCIA. I have some very trusted friends that are premium members and understand my financial restraints at this time and I know that i'm not going to find some miracle overnight success info on the premium side but i want to support the organization and eventually become certified because one day it may be the difference in getting a job i bid. noone around here cleans roofs but i'm sure the busier i get, contractors with no work will be doing it too. THEN i really believe that above other obvious reasons to be premium, i will have a huge support team to help me wage war on the competition lol. i mean i didnt even know what seo was until a few months ago and now on my own ( by on my own i mean with the help from chris, brett, and others but with no help from paid services), i've made a huge step up in my internet presence. well i'm not gonna keep ranting but thats JMO. I'm sure others have their own reasons and different situations/circumstances so i'm not trying to bash anyone else.

Any association I have ever been a member of has had dues and fees. It is just what is needed to take things to the next level.Organizations need funds to carry out their day to day operations. Nothing is free and most of those at the top of any organization are doing it for their love of the trade.If you think there is some underlying motive that someone is getting rich and you're not going to help pay for that then I must tell you you are saddly mistaken and you are going to miss out on a huge part of many things in life If you always carry this attitude.

The yous & yours in this statement are all in generalaties and not directed to any one person.

I think Jimmy sums it up pretty well....what he got is worth the hundred. Now Chris maybe you know everything about everything and thats great. But your on here for a reason.....a reason only you really know. Rob say's he's back amd may be a member one day,thats great...looking forward to it. I have to say I am constantly learning new things on here, no matter how small. I just think being a premium member is the " right thing to do " the information Chris Tucker and the others have shared on here is well worth it! Maybe Chris if one day you read somthing you didn't know you may feel it's worth being a premium member.....just a thought.

Kim, Jimmy and Aaron make some good points. I joined within a week of signing up and I know a few others who have done the same. Believe me, I understand how far 100.00 needs to go these days so I won't harass anyone but when a statement is made that premium members has become a club, from someone who has never seen one post in the premium section, I will disagree with that blatant and bold statement. We share our ideas more freely for sure, and if anyone else where there, no matter who you are, we'd (they'd) do the same for you.

Chris Tucker does more for the SEO here than anyone else, look at his recent post. Just a few things he does would cost more than the hundred so many think is too much. Also, the forum costs money to run, talk shoe isn't free and instant presenter also must be paid. The corporation has some work to be done that will need legal and accounting help and knowledge. Is that enough?

"It is just what is needed to take things to the next level." Good statement Aaron.

It was worth the 100 the first day I started reading and learning what I have, to get my business started professionally, In such a short period of time. It ou don't feel you learned a great deal then don't pay.....Even if you don't wanna be a premmie I think Chris T made something awesome here so We gotta keep that going somehow.....

 Chris;

You seem to think there is NO value in being a premium member, or being a guest of RCIA for that matter. How come you keep coming back here to post, if there is no benefit?  Why don't you break the links to your website since you receive NO benefit from them being on here?  OH, you do receive some hits from here? Gee, wonder what that worth over a period of time? You have linkbacks from this site to others? Wonder what thats worth?  Perhaps you should DELETE your account here and see how quickly you sink in the ratings. Sometimes people need a eye-opener. Deleting your account should prove how "Correct" you are. Are you game for it?

All just simple questions for consideration. Not trying to start a war.

Gary

 For one thing if we have a job that we can't or for some reason don't want to do, we will hand it off to another Premium Member. Called Net-Working

David, same here. I've passed 3 leads off here in just the past 1.5 months. All to RCIA members in my area. If they weren't members, they probably wouldn't have gotten a call because I wouldn't know squat about them.
