Should Mike Dillard’s Elevation Group Be Free?
Some people think Mike Dillard’s Elevation Group should be. And they’ve let us know. But you’ll understand exactly why the Elevation Group (EVG) is not free in a moment.
First, here’s a couple comments we’ve received lately:
I am not paying for information that you should be helping with for free. This is wrong. Shame on you. -Anonymous
And here’s another:
I’m considering becoming a member of the group, but I have a question. I have been concerned about the “fear-tactics” of the newsletters, and I’m glad that you addressed this today. But I want to know, if you are doing this because you care about people who are financially unprepared for the disaster you see coming, why are you charging for membership at all? Why not just give the information away to as many people as possible for free? … Something’s amiss here, what gives? (name withheld for privacy)
At first, the argument both readers make seems logical. The line of reasoning goes like this:
- EVG has information that will help people avoid the coming financial meltdown.
- EVG information could save people from losing all their money.
- EVG wants to help people with this information.
- Therefore, EVG should give away the information for free.
Seems logical, right? After all, how caring is it to withhold such vital information?
Or actually charge money for it. Shame on Mike Dillard, right?
Shouldn’t Mike Dillard’s Elevation Group give out their info for Free?
But let’s stop right there…
Take a deep breath … and look at this argument a little more critically. Those who want Mike Dillard’s Elevation Group to be free aren’t considering several key factors.
Let’s see how this argument applies to other professions. Say, for example, doctors.
A doctor has knowledge and information that could be vital to your future physical well-being. In fact, it could be the difference between life and death.
Using the logic of our critics, doctors should therefore give all consultations for free, right? Shame on them for charging money for their services!
Oops. Now the logic isn’t so airtight, is it?
“But wait …” you say. “That’s different!”
No, actually, it’s not.
You see, Mike Dillard’s Elevation Group is a business. We’re in business to make money. Just like any doctor or lawyer or accountant you might hire.
You pay those professionals for their expertise. Their guidance. Their knowledge.
But It’s Just Information, right?
Yes, it’s “just” information. But the information these professionals have can change your life.
Doctors, lawyers, accountants. They’re in business to help you. They’re ready and willing to give you the life-changing information you need.
But it’s not their responsibility to give it to you for free.
In fact, their information is SO valuable, they charge a lot for it.
And people are willing to pay for information that adds value to their life.
Should Mike Dillard’s Elevation Group be free or not? You decide.
“Mike Dillard’s Elevation Group” has valuable information. We have priceless expertise.
And we’re not shy about charging money for it. In fact, we believe it’s worth much more than we charge.
Ask yourself this- How much time, effort and money would it take you to acquire this information on your own?
But we’re happy to make it affordable enough for everyone. Very affordable. For people like you who actually make use of the information, we don’t mind handing out healthy discounts.
Nevertheless, it’s expensive to run the site and provide you with the kind of education we give you. It would be impossible to make Mike Dillard’s Elevation Group without charging some type of reasonable membership dues.
We study trends. We hire experts. We pay for technology. We buy financial expertise and information. We pay employees a fair wage. We package the information up in easy-to-digest formats.
In short, we run a business and it costs money.
We appreciate you as a customer. We know there are a lot of people in the financial world shouting for your attention. They all claim to have the answers. We understand you have a choice of who you listen to.
That’s why EVG offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. Join us. Look around the site. Review the information that’s available. Check out our Rolodex of financial experts. If you’re not satisfied, no worries, we’ll give you every penny back.
Making today count,
