Hey guys and gals,
First off, a big thanks goes out to all of you for helping us build the Geaux247 site across the first six months of us being here. I can speak for Sonny when I say we both appreciate the support, and always have. There's nothing more fun than bringing this community of folks the LSU recruiting and team news - both quickly and accurately.
With all the news flying around right now – from the Chick-Fil-A Bowl preparations to where the staff will be recruiting, who remains a top priority, which visitors are expected on officials, and more - I wanted to point out the benefits of upgrading from a monthly membership to an annual membership.
If you have been a monthly subscriber and know you like the site and plan to stick around, it is a benefit to everyone - both you and us - to upgrade from monthly to annual. You actually save money with an annual subscription. It amounts to $8.95 per month instead of $9.95. The lone difference: you get billed once a year for the full amount ($107.40) instead of being billed 12 times. This can be a benefit for some, too, because they only have to explain one charge to their significant others....
This is another big one for me. In addition to the cost savings, annual subscribers are eligible to sign up for our text alert service for free. Because of the costs of building, using and maintaining this service, right now text alerts are only available to annual members. We have been using the service a lot lately, and we broke the news of LSU to the Chick-Fil-A Bowl via the service, and it will be an avenue for all breaking recruiting news moving forward.
Having more annual members also allows us to plan for the future, and down the line we can bring on more people to help cover the Tigers. The stability of annual memberships gives us a much better idea of what we can and can't afford in the future. I know it's tough to believe, but this site is still new – it's really still in its' infant stages. We are still in the growth stage, and annuals help a great deal.
If you are a monthly subscriber and wish to upgrade your account to annual, you should see a big green UPGRADE button at the top right of the site. You can also upgrade through your user options on the full site by clicking on “My Account” and clicking the "Plans" tab. After clicking on the button, you should see details on our annual offer. Click on "upgrade now" and you’ll successfully upgrade your account with us from monthly to annual and will be eligible to set up text alerts.
If you are already an annual member, a big thanks goes out to you. If you are an annual member and have not signed up for text alerts, just click on My Account and then click on the Alerts tab. At that point you just enter the mobile number you'd like to receive the alerts. The boxes below should be checked by default if you are visiting there for the first time. Just enter your number and hit save and you should be all set.
Again, thanks for everyone's support and let us know if you have any questions. It's been a great start for Geaux247, and with National Signing Day drawing closer, it will only get better.

Not much I can add to that well-crafted message except to reiterate how much we appreciate your support and how excited we are about the future. We feel we have barely scratched the surface with what we plan to do at our new home, and I know that our Network has a lot of engineering initiatives planned for 2013 that will only enhance the site and the Network.
Please pass the word to all of your family and friends and we will be rolling out a new initiative that we came up with - a referral program - that will allow you all to earn free months to your existing membership very soon. We hope you all will take advantage of it and help us spread the word on Geaux247.
Thanks again for all your support.
Updated to yearly subscription. Keep up the good work guys.
Thanks a ton, tigers911. Almost an immediate response. It's much appreciated.
Make certain you sign up for text alerts.
Im here as long as Shea, Sonny and LSU football is around. Would be lost without you guys as all I hear about here in Tampa is USF and Florida news.
Ok.. I will go ahead and go annual...
Wanted to make sure you guys and gals saw this referral program we are now doing where we will give you a FREE month or months for new subscribers you help us recruit.
Want FREE time added to your current Geaux247 subscription. Go inside for all of the details.
I just went ahead and upgraded to annual as well. Thanks for the great work!

Thanks for believing in us and the product my friend
Will renew my annual when it is time. Easily the best site.

Shea I had updated to the annual subscription two days ago!
Just wondering, but how many people are on here now?? If you can not disclose that information, I understand
Definitely annual here.
Gentlemen, lets beat the bushes here and get more people signed up. I am sure that Geaux247's growth is phenomenal. As a matter of fact I know that it is since I got a note from Geauxlden about coming over and trying it. I am not dissappointed in the least. The quality of the articles, member participation, recruiting, team stories and everything else is superb.
What I can tell you Scoot to give you an idea of the growth we experienced since coming over on June 1 is we reached our National Signing Day goal of members back around the 1st of November so the support from all of you has been overwhelming and much appreciated
Hell yea, I'm amazed how this site grew so fast, and it was well worth the wait
We're nowhere near where we think we can take it, with all of your help, so please, please pass on the referral program and 30-Day free trial
Sonny, you can count on me. I am going to call co-workers back in Louisiana. I have some friends in St Martinville and Breaux Bridge that i worked with in the past and I know that they will definitely be interested.
Headboardbanger, why don't you call your brothers? I bet that they just might give it a try. Don't make me call some of you guys out on this thing now because if I have to then I will. Hell, I got two new members here in Waco for the aTm site just by telling them a little about our site.
Even though we are fixing to pay a membership here the site needs to continue to grow. No company is ever going to say that they are big enough. The bigger we get the louder our voices are heard.
I signed up for the trial program and looking forward to becoming an annual member Dec. 31. thanks for a great site
Thanks for giving us a look Huckie and glad to have you on board. Let us know if you ever need anything
just upgraded. i really hate commitments but you had me at text alerts.
I've been a monthly subscriber for 5 years going back to Scout. I liked the fact that I could back out if I ever wanted to. Looking back, it was just denial haha
Great site and great info, well worth it IMO.
Appreciate it Nad...For now and all of the years of support
Take things a month at a time. No long term commitment. Nad, I'm hoping that you aren't taking this approach with women...
Are text alerts currently going out? I have been signed up but have not received any texts that I am aware of.
I'll send you a PM so we can correspond to see what is going on.
