Answers to questions you may be have about the new Prosper202 Self-Hosted ClickServer

Q: Wow this is awesome, are you for real?
A: As real as real can get. Yes, after being taken offline since July 2016, Prosper202 Self-Hosted is now ready for download.

Q: Is it free?
A: Not this version, but it's priced fairly and within reach of most marketers

Q: Ok, so how much is it going to cost?
A: This is where I'll be slick and say, Prosper202 doesn't cost, it pays :) But seriously, the price is just $11.99 a month, or less than $0.40 cents a day. What can you get for $0.40 cents these days? this comes with unlimited software updates, and unlimited installs. This means you can install Prosper202 on as many of your domains as you want for no extra cost. Later on, we will be launching an innovative new feature (aka: something that makes you more money and  makes your life easier) that will make you fully understand why we offer unlimited installs without paying extra. After the first year, you can continue to subscribe to support and updates. If you decide not to, you software will continue to work.

Q: Dude that's such a steal at only $0.40 a day! What's the catch? Why is Prosper202 so inexpensive when other Self-Hosted trackers cost almost 827% more at $1188 a year?
A: There's no catch. You are getting the same quality software that people use to make millions in commissions every month. But because I keep costs low, I can pass on huge savings to you. For instance, Bot202 answers a ton of support questions, and will be answering more over time, that allows me to not have to hire a whole team of support reps. Also thanks to the fact that you are so awesome and tell others about Prosper202, I don't have to spend money on advertising to get new customers, occasionally I'll still run ads to test out stuff, but over all, my ad spend is $0. Crazy eh? A tracking software for paid advertisers that doesn't do paid advertising.

Q: Does the software stop working if I cancel my subscription?
A: Absolutely not! You paid for it, so why should it ever stop working? That means once you buy the software, you can continue to use it forever. After you cancel free updates will end. So the version that you have is the one you will be stuck on. You can subscribe to get new updates and support at any time.

Q: Is the source code encrypted?
A: No, unlike other self-hosted tracking software, the source code for Prosper202 is completely open. So you can build upon it easily. BUT, this is not Free Open Source Software. It's paid software with the source code open for viewing and customization.

Q: Will you have free trials or demos?
A: No, not for now, plus at $11.99 there's not much of a financial risk to try it out. most of you already have Prosper202 and know what you are getting.

Q: What are the server requirements?
A: Due to the new codebase, and road map for the future, Prosper202 1.9.43 needs a more modern server stack. The ideal specs are PHP 7+, memcached, and MySQL 5.6 or higher. I understand that some hosting providers will not be able to install and run the new Prosper202, so I've been talking with Tyler and his team over at BeyondHosting to make sure you have everything you need to run the new Prosper202 smoothly. They have been optimizing Prosper202 servers for almost 7 years, so they are experts in supporting Prosper202 and do it better than any other hosting provider. If possible just host with them.

Q: You are the best!
A: Thanks, I think you are the best too! Thanks for your business and support for all these years. I appreciate you, and look forward to many long years of doing business together.

A Smart AI Based Marketing Bot That Optimizes Your Campaigns
By Nana Gilbert-Baffoe, View comments

If you are actively tracking your ad campaigns and media buys, you already know the daily drill of logging into your tracking and analytics software, running reports, and spending hours trying to figure out the changes needed to keep optimize and scale your campaigns.

This is repetitive drudge work that can't be avoided, but what if there was a way to cut down and eventually eliminate much of the repetitive work?

We built you an automated chatbot based AI Assistant that does the heavy lifting, and surfaces actionable recommendations on changes you should make to optimize and fine tune your campaigns to profitability, and massive scale.

We call it the Smart Assist Optimizer and it's going to change the way you scale and optimize your campaigns

If you are working with a team of media buyers, this is going to be like having a senior media buyer by the side of everyone of your team members, allowing them to perform tasks more effectively even if they are inexperienced.

You'll also start to see how much money you've been leaving on the table. Our Smart Assist Bot never sleeps, doesn't get tired and most importantly it doesn't get bored of the task at hand. So it's going to continue doing its job at a constant level of performance at all times.

It will even get smarter and better over time as it learns more about your campaign, allowing it to more accurately suggest actions for you to take.

It is Time To Shake Up The Way SaaS Trackers are Priced
By Nana Gilbert-Baffoe, View comments

There's one thing that really bugs me about spending money on services and products.

It's the terrible feeling that I'm being massively overcharged for the services I pay for. Don't you hate it when that happens? Especially with SaaS services

It's Time To Shake Up The Pricing Model of SaaS Trackers and Analytics Tools In A Big Way

The other night, when I was going over my numbers, I realized I am able to drop the price on the entry level Solo Plan for Prosper202 Marketing Cloud from $299 to $199 a month.But that's not all. I also decided to give all subscribers free access to my $1999 TollBooth Method Training program. Before, you had to be on the more expensive $499 plan to get free access.

I'm doing a big push to dramatically ramp up the level of premium strategic education and training I offer to all paid clients, because I 100% believe our success go hand in hand and I'm willing to make the early and long term investment into making you successful.

It gets better, I decided to automatically update the subscriptions of everyone on the $299 plan so they now only pay $199 a month. As I thought of this more, I realized this is exactly what I'd want the companies I do business with to do for me.

One company that does this well is Amazon Web Services. We host Prosper202 Marketing Cloud on AWS, and they constantly drop prices and pass on the savings right away. So from now on, that's exactly what I'll be doing for you too.

Due to economies of scale, as the number of subscribers to the Prosper202 Marketing Cloud increases, we are able to drop prices and pass the savings to you automatically.

Plus, I'll be adding more value added services to your subscription too. So you will always have the best pricing and value. Right now I'm finalizing a deal to give every Prosper202 Marketing Cloud client free premium access to Follow.net The Fastest 1-Click Way To Do Competitive Intelligence!

Everything is pretty much set, I just have a few little details to work out. For now you can get the free account, which is already pretty awesome and has free perks for being a Prosper202 user.

During times when we are investing in new and better infrastructure, there will be price increases but only for new customers. Existing customers will always keep their lower pricing. As our overall costs drop, everyone will benefit with automatic price decreases and savings.

My ambitious goal for this time next year, is to be able to offer the Solo plan with the same unlimited clicks and all the perks for only $49 a month. There's a lot of growing that's needed to do that, but it's totally doable. By the end of 2018, my goal is to drive down costs further to be able to offer the Solo plan for $9-$19 a month and this will happen with even more powerful infrastructure and performance than what's available today.

Beyond that, my ultimate goal is to be able to offer our Solo plan 100% free to everyone, just like I was able to do with the old free self-hosted Prosper202. Basic tracking is something everyone should have access to, and the best way to do that is to eventually make it free for every marketer to get started with no click limits. We'll make our money after we've helped you and provided massive value.

If this sounds like something you can get behind, let's do this. Switch to Prosper202 Marketing Cloud, and benefit from working with the only company which has truly had your back for almost 9 years now and continues to do so in every way possible.

As always you can talk directly to me live when I'm online. Just click the little blue chat widget on the bottom right of this page.
