|How is this different from the National Weather Service?
I try to approach everything with a fresh, different perspective.
There are aspects of the National Weather Service that we've taken and made better. For exmaple storm reports, storm event forecasts,etc.
We are not a replacement for the NWS. The biggest thing is that we are storm chasers and here to do something different.
We offer interesting perspective and experience you can't find anywhere else. The drive and passion to provide a service comes from the heart.
When you look around it's very clear to see.
|Why pay when there's so much free information out there?
You get what you get with free information. Maybe you're here because you demand better? Maybe you're curious? Maybe you just need to try something different?
Maybe you need alternative perspective? You can find gobs and gobs of information out there but there is no replacement for what we bring to the table.
|What do I get for $4.99/mo?
Check out our list of member services located here
Plus you're supporting a Wisconsin small business owner.
It was the best option from a simplicity, security, and privacy perspective. I don't want to be responsible for your personal finanical information.
Paypal sends your payment and we provide the service :) Easy. Secure. Reliable.
|How do monthly payments work?
When you click "Register + Pay", you will be taken to the PayPal portal. You will be asked to confirm a payment of $4.99 monthly until canceled. While you fill out the information there we create a WISCONSINWX.COM
account for you. Once the recipt of your first payment reaches our system, we turn your membership on. It stays on until you cancel it. If things
don't work out there are many ways to disengage...the quickest to login to your account and simply cancel it. You're member account sticks around until
you delete it so you can always turn your membership back on later :)
|How do I get the biggest bang for my buck?
Sign up for WIWX Alerts, sign up for NWS warnings on your account page. Make sure you've got your email and mobile phone verified so that we
can reach you with updates. Browse through the forecast navigation menu for weekly, monthly forecasts. Ahead of the next storm keep an eye on the storms page.
Following the next storm, measure how much rain or snow you got, send us a report and watch how the achievements system works. Browse the discussion boards for
anything that might interest you. Wait for something new to arrive :).
|Do you offer trial accounts?
No. In the past when we started paid memberships we gave existing members a six month free trial. Perhaps we will in the future.
I need yes or no now because my family and future depends on this. I'm looking for people who are "All-in" because that's what I am.
|Will memberships ever go on sale?
$4.99 forever and always. It won't go down. It won't go up. The value is long term. For example: as new services get added the membership fee
stays fixed. One day we will give back to our best members.
|There always seems to be a ton of development happening?
Never a finished product. Always a work in progress. I don't have all the answers. I don't know the perfect formula for success.
I know that tomorrow we need to be better than we were yesterday, so today we must get to work. We will never settle.
