Today, we’re introducing and outlining the details of our 2020 VIP package.
It’s hard to believe nearly a year has passed since we launched our very first VIP package. As promised, we’re continuing to build on our initial vision. Here’s what we’re adding to the package in 2020…
First, 2020 VIP members will receive their content earlier in 2020 than they did in 2019. This year, members received their content on February 1st. In 2020, VIP members will receive their content on NEW YEAR’S DAY.
Along with receiving the content a month earlier in 2020 than in 2019, VIP members will also receive more content next year than they did in 2019.
In 2019, VIP members received my top-250 prospect list, my prospect obsession list and my high-value active player list.
In 2020, VIP members will receive my top-250 prospect list, my prospect obsession list, my high-value active player list and my 2020 starting pitcher rankings… AND you’ll receive this content on New Year’s Day (a month earlier than the release date in 2019)!
The #201-250 portion of my prospect list and the starting pitcher rankings will be EXCLUSIVE to VIP members, which means that portion of the content will never be published on the site.
Just like this year, you will receive the entirety of this content at least one month before it is published on Prospects365.com. This year, we felt like we gave you a leg-up on your competition by sending you the content on February 1st before publishing it on the website beginning March 1st. In 2020, we’ll give you that same leg-up, and we’ll be sending the content to you even earlier in the preseason than we did in 2019 (preseason content will begin to trickle-out on the site beginning February 1st).
Furthermore, we are offering the same Direct Message access as we did this year. If you purchase a VIP membership, you will be followed by @Prospects365 on Twitter, meaning you’ll have direct access to our direct messages. Our DMs have been utilized by more than 100 VIP members in 2019. We are hoping that number grows closer to 200 in 2020. Trade offers you’d like to discuss? Questions about a prospect you’re looking to grab off your league’s waiver wire? Simply tired of annoying your husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend with prospect commentary they know/care nothing about? Direct messaging @Prospects365 is your perfect outlet. Note: 2019 VIP members who choose not to renew their membership will be unfollowed on January 1st, 2020. 2020 VIP members will be followed by @Prospects365 until January 1st, 2021.
If you’re interested and committed to becoming a Prospects 365 2020 VIP member, all you have to do is send a one-time payment of $25 to @Prospects365 on Venmo (our preferred method of payment), askprospects365@
If you’re wondering what the content you’ll receive looks like, you’re in luck. My preseason top-200 prospect list (with extensive write-ups for each prospect), my prospect obsession list (here and here) and my high-value active player list (here and here) for the 2019 season were all published on the site. The difference for VIP members, though, was they received this content more than a month before it was published on the site. They also received an additional 50 prospects on the prospect list (#201-250, including extensive write-ups) that was exclusive to VIP members. In 2020, most the VIP content will be published on the site in February and early March. You have the opportunity to access the content on New Year’s Day.
As I mentioned above, I am also allowing VIP members to access my starting pitcher rankings for the 2020 season. These rankings will be projection based, with advanced analytics, predictive outcomes and organizational opportunities helping me uncover pitchers who could play a huge role in winning your fantasy league in 2020. If you’d like a preview to the time and effort exerted into these rankings, I recently published a long-form piece on a pitcher I’m extremely bullish on heading to next season.
When I published the article introducing our maiden VIP package on New Year’s Day 2019, I projected the quantity of content members would receive at approximately 35,000 words. With an additional rankings list being sent in 2020 (and more depth in each list), I project VIP members to receive ~70,000 words of content on New Year’s Day 2021. It will truly be a fantastic start to your new year.
I hope you choose to join our VIP members in 2020. It is hard to state the influence you’ve had on our site viewership growing by more than 150% in 2019. As it currently stands, we are hopeful 2020 will our first year exceeding 1,000,000 page views in a single year. This will only be possible with your continued support and interest in the prospect and active player content we create.
Once more: If you’re interested and committed to becoming a Prospects 365 2020 VIP member, all you have to do is send a one-time payment of $25 to @Prospects365 on Venmo (our preferred method of payment), askprospects365@
All you have to do is sign-up before New Year’s Day to receive our VIP content.
2020 is going to be a phenomenal year for a lot of reasons. We hope you choose to join us on our continued journey upward.
