Hello Poppers, Fresh Planeteers, Zendeskians, and more!
VIP is expensive! With the amount of money many, including myself, have spent on VIP in this one game, we could have bought dozens of others. Fresh Planet is lucky they've got us so hooked. ;-) Regardless, with better incentives, many more people would be interested in paying the hefty load to enjoy VIP as well. Some incentive suggestions are below.
What VIP should become:
- Unlimited Games
With the latest update, the allowed number of games for VIP users has been upped from 80 to 100, but there is still no reason to create this limit. There are tons of ways around the game limits and it becomes more of a sloppy annoyance to the user than it is a limit. Anyone paying for the most expensive way to play SongPop should not be limited in how much they can play.
- 20 Second Clips
Many, many of us paid for 20 seconds clips with SongPop plus, only to have it retracted to 15 seconds. This is one reason why many, including myself, may not renew VIP. Many of us feel slightly cheated out of something we paid for. That said, this could still be a good VIP incentive.
- No Ads + Pop-up Removal
Retain no ads as per before, but also the removal of the pop-ups that come up after newer Artist playlists and the random pop-ups with suggestions to buy playlists between rounds would make the experience feel more ad-free.
- Free Weekly Coins
With current trends, there are 6 new playlists created every week. That's a lot of great content! The only problem is that very few players are making the ~2400 coins (or ~2000 coins if all 4 possible one-time offers are utilized) to keep up with all the new material, let alone all the old material they already are missing out on. Maybe a free 250 coins or 500 coins every week just for being a VIP user would allow the most contributing players to experience all the great new content.
- Free Activation & Deactivation of Play Lists
Many users have spent thousands of coins turning lists on and off to their fancy. If this were allowed as a free function for VIP users, many people would feel a lot more flexibility in how they can use their play lists. Moreover, this would also be an incentive for people to buy more play lists, as there becomes less risk in the case where a player does not like the list they have purchased.
- Extra Daily Spin
Every day, many players are frustrated with 25 coins and 2 power ups repeatedly. Rarely is much more given. However, everyone has seen the opportunity to try again with only the 8 remaining prizes for $0.99. The immediate problem with this is that between 25 coins and 2 power ups, the second spin will most likely be just the other one. Allowing for an extra free spin for VIP users may even become a money magnet in that it could get many players to pay for additional spins due to the fact that both of the small prizes are probably now out of the pool.
- Accelerated Play List Mastery
This should not be double mastery or anything that extreme, but if VIP members filled their stars maybe 20%-25% faster, this would provide a great incentive for people working to master lists. Many, many people aiming to 5 star as many lists as possible would feel a huge incentive in being able to master 4-5 lists in the time it takes to master 3-4 normally.
- Unlimited chat, free challenges from profiles, daily best match free shuffles, better sound quality, etc.
All the current advantages given to VIP users not mentioned above should still be retained!
With a VIP program more like this, many more people would feel the urge to jump on board. Given the expensive and continuous cost of VIP, many require strong benefits such as these in order to pay and continue to pay.
Thanks in advanced for your consideration! :-)
