Let's talk premium!

Thanks to all who entered our Suggestions Contest! Watch for future posts inspired by your great ideas. And stay tuned – at the end of this post the contest winners will be announced!

The basic features of a free QueryTracker.net membership have been covered by Elana, Heather, Suzette, and Mary. Now let’s talk about PREMIUM FEATURES! Today we’ll cover a few of the basics:

NO ADVERTISEMENTS – Becoming a Premium Member not only gets rid of those annoying ads, but also speeds up your page loads.

AGENCY CROSS-REFERENCE – At a glance you can see who else is in a particular agency – and whether you’ve queried (or been rejected by) them!

ORGANIZATION - There's no limit to the number of folders you can create, which allows limitless opportunities for you to arrange your data how deem best.

QUERY STATS - My personal favorite! View a graph comparing your query statistics to those of the average QueryTracker user.

IS IT PRICEY??? Rest assured that our most amazing Patrick McDonald, who has been known to pen a novel or two himself, has our best interests at heart and wants to make these amazing tools affordable for everyone. $25. That’s the price of a Premium Membership. Per year. PER YEAR! That’s it.

For those of you who recognize me as SuzyQ on the Query Tracker Forum, I’ve been known to expound about my premium membership being the best $25 I’ve ever spent. I wasn’t kidding! Not only have these features made my life easier, they’ve upped my odds of landing an agent. An invaluable tool is the Premium Reports which Heather will address next week. In the mean time, for those of you who can't wait to find out more, take a peek at all the Premium features.

And now, for the winners of our Suggestions Contest…

The Grand Prize goes to Lady Glamis for her most amazing comment on question-and-answer sessions. We couldn't resist choosing a runner-up as well. Selestial-owg wins a prize for the sheer number of good ideas. Winners, send me an email (suzettesaxton@querytracker.net) for details on how to redeem your prize.

Thanks to all who entered. We'll be sure to have another contest of this kind in the future!
