I think someone would have to weigh the benefits for themselves. This will not be an answer where everyone has the same conclusion. I'd venture to say that if I was paying $59/month for something and earlier this month I had closed on a $400000 house because of a contact from that $59/month thing (thereby making, conservatively $6000 on a 50% split) I would be more willing to put up with it than if I was paying $59/month and my sales unit netted me $200. Or if I had never experienced the value and I didn't know what the site was capable of providing for me. So for some people, no amount of down time will be acceptable. For others, who have seen tremendous value, their rope is going to be a little longer......
18 years in the biz, lost everything in our crash.... I mean everything! My town had 20 sales in 2008 and they were all under $100,000 doesn't take a rocket scienctist to know it was tough.... However unemployment was 21% so what was finding a job going to be like and the unemployment rate did not cover the self employed that were dropping like flies. My husband was injured with a 2 year recovery at the same time the market changed and so we went from 2 decent incomes to none.... Where after all this time, going back to the legal field for $10 an hour was not going to save us.... Holding on for the ride made me a better agent in the long run.... And Barry many of wonder why every now and again
