Starting October 1st Spruz will focus on premium services. Our goal has always been to provide the most flexible and robust content platform on the net with the best performance. In order to accomplish this we will be moving over to a premium only offering, so that we will be able to offer our customers a great service with a minimal cost.
Over the past few months we have come to the realization that the current, primarily ad supported, model does not bring in nearly enough revenue to support the needs and desires of you, our customers. We are proud to announce that you have made Spruz a network comprised of 45,000+ websites and over 700,000 members. As more users have elected to “grow yourself” and become members of the popular Spruz platform the main complaint is slow page load times and errors. The biggest drawback to offering free website to anyone, is the people that create a website in order to exploit people, the internet or us. This puts a large unneeded resource drain on the whole network that hurts everyone. We now know that to continue with a free, ad supported, offering is doing a disservice to all our users.
The decision to go to a premium service model has weighed heavy on us and was not made lightly, but the steps we are making now will allow us to focus on the kind of quality we desire to provide to each of our users.
Some benefits to this change include; improved site performance, quality in network websites (You will be part of a premium only network), faster page loads, fewer errors, and improved customer support are just to name a few.
On October 1st all sites will be converted to a 30 day trial account for Spruz.com and Clansitemanager.com website services (All your content will be the same, no data will be removed). During the 30 day trial you will have the option of continuing with our premium offering that starts at $9.95 per month based on annual payment or you can pay monthly. This will give you an additional 30 days to decide if Spruz is right for you.
You are free to call us at 877-MYSPRUZ for questions on upgrading your website.
