When I heard that Netflix lost 800,000 subscribers after raising their prices, I knew I had to do the opposite.
Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) November 14, 2011
Inspired by the backlash that Netflix received after raising subscription fees, professional poker player Jonathan Little has lowered subscription fees for his online poker training site, FloatTheTurn.com, from $19.95 per month with a $99.95 sign-up fee to just $8 per month with no sign-up fee. Most poker training sites still charge $20 to $30 per month, so this price drop is significant.
Asked why he made the price drop, Little responded, "When I heard that Netflix lost 800,000 subscribers after raising their prices, I knew I had to do the opposite."
Jonathan Little wants to help stimulate the poker economy. Little continued, "It's no secret that the poker industry has been struggling lately. With the exception of the World Series of Poker, participation in large buy-in tournaments has been dropping steadily in recent years. When I won the Foxwoods WPT event in 2008, there were 412 entrants. In 2011, there were only 189 entrants. Something has to be done to encourage more people to play or we'll just end up with a handful of pros playing each other for insignificant prize pools. I'm hoping this new lower price will appeal to a much larger group of aspiring poker players and help them develop the skills and confidence they need to compete in today's game."
"And if this new lower price helps me get 800,000 new subscribers, I wouldn't complain," Little added with a smile.
The price drop wasn't the only big change Little made at FloatTheTurn.com. Little has also started giving away a new free poker training video each month. These videos can be watched without signing up.
FloatTheTurn.com is a leading poker training site that provides access to over 480 videos from a variety of coaches, specializing in sit-n-gos and multi-table tournaments. FloatTheTurn.com was created by professional poker player Jonathan Little, who has won 2 World Poker Tour titles and has over $5 million in career winnings.
