Bullseye-Sports.com Is Back In Business

Since opening my new guaranteed picks site back in April, I’ve struggled with what I wanted to do with my original site, www.bullseye-sports.com. I didn’t really want to shut it down. It was the site that started me in the sports handicapping business back in July of 2000. Call me sentimental, but I just couldn’t get myself to walk away from it.
So, a few months ago, after making the final decision to keep bullseye-sports.com open, I had to decide in what direction I wanted to go with the site. I’ve tried several different business models over the past 11+ years. I like the idea of having guaranteed picks & rewarding clients for sticking with me, and my new site has that covered.
The other avenue, which coincides with my beliefs, is to have a site that tries to move bettors away from the short-term mindset (buying daily packages, chasing short-term streaks, buying pick titles like “Game of the Year,” etc.) and try to teach them that long-term thinking is how to make money at sports betting.
There are many ways I could accomplish this. One thing I wanted to make sure of is that I made this affordable for virtually all bettors. Since I don’t count on pick sales to pay my living expenses, there’s no reason to charge anywhere near what the average pro handicapper charges. Having a much lower price will help keep even smaller bettors on the long-term path.
I decided that the best way to accomplish what I wanted is to have bullseye-sports.com be a monthly subscription site. “Monthly” meaning the only package is a $55 monthly all-sports all-picks package (no daily packages; no individual sport packages; no ridiculous marketing hype). “Subscription” meaning a client is automatically charged every month, so you only have to go through the short checkout process once. And you’re free to cancel at any time just by sending me an email.
By only charging $55 per month, I’m basically taking what would be a $660 yearly fee and breaking it into low monthly payments. Like I said, you’re free to cancel at any time. $55 doesn’t even get you a weekend package for most cappers, and won’t get you a week of service for 99% of pro cappers.
I’m hoping that the low price, basically just a tip at less than $2 per day, helps keep bettors on board for the long haul. Every capper goes through losing streaks and I know it’s difficult for many to stick with a capper that charges a ton and has been going through a rough patch. Many times, a bettor will jump ship right before that capper gets hot again. That mistake ruins many a bettor (well, that and following long-term losers). I hope the low price helps clients break that habit.
Convenience. I want my clients to be able to get my picks as conveniently as possible. My picks will be posted on the Members page, should a client choose to visit the site and login. The picks will also be emailed to all clients. Many clients these days can check their email on their cell phones, so you won’t have to keep logging in all day to keep checking if picks have been released yet.
I’m also offering to send the picks via text message. This is optional, however. A client wishing to receive picks via text message only has to email me with the number they want the picks sent to. Again, clients don’t have to keep checking the web site with this option.
An extremely low price from a proven long-term winner, combined with complete convenience of receiving the picks. That should make it much easier for clients to get on and stay on the long-term road to profitable sports betting.
I’m extremely happy to have bullseye-sports.com open again. I’m hoping to help many bettors profit in 2012 and beyond.
