It is $39/month or $199 for the year.  It goes down to $29/month when you hit 200,000 pts, then $19 at 300,000 pts, then $9 at 400,000 pts and then free for life at 500,000 pts.

Debbie Gartner has the answer. It's worth it to upgrade, and after you reach that magic 500,000 point mark, it's free. There's great incentive to get involved with the site and to write to your blog. This will also bring you leads and business. Interacting with other members may also get you referrals. I'm trying to send out a referral right now and I'm searching AR for a person to send it to.

John Hurbon Debbie has covered it all - so extending my thoughts on that.

It may make sense to opt for $199/year for the first year.

If you participate actively, you may be ready for a free lifetime account at ActiveRain - once you reach 500,000 points.

John, although not written, after a quick analysis it appears that a check for $1,000 made out to Activerain should be enough to begin negotiations to attain permanent status.

 Good Friday morning John. The $39 a month is a sliding scale based on activity or $199 a year

I suggest the one year option, with a resolution that you will work your way up to 500k pts by the end.

It depends on what special is being offered. Now I hear you can upgrade for $99 for an entire year.

Hi John!  Debbie has you covered, so I won't rehash that.  I did the one year plan fairly recently.  It is nice seeing those posts show up on Google and the lesser search engines.  :-) 


I'll switch to the monthly once I hit those price breaks though... unless the annual price reflects the breaks.  I'm probably a few years away from that.  There are posts on how to maximize your earning potential if you're wanting to get the the break asap.  Just make sure you do quality posts instead of ones maximized to hit the goal with a copy and paste.  Those get reported by many members and you can lose the points from those. 


The sooner you upgrade the better, if you are already active.  You have to go back and manually change your members only posts to public ones after you upgrade.  I had MANY to do that with.

Good morning John. Four years ago, when I made that decision, it was a no brainer. I do mortgages in eight states, so my blogs reach a lot of people.
