Well, the secret is out of the bag as you can see by the title……
My new website is http://theformanalyst.co.uk/
I thought long and hard about the name but it became fairly obvious. My best skill is analysing form and therefore, the name sort of made sense to me.
It’s taken a little bit of time to get Paypal set up on the site and I’d ask everyone who wants to sign up to be patient. I’m sure there will be lots of ‘bugs’ on the site and it will take a few days to flush them all out. If anyone does have problems signing up for example, drop me a note and I’ll try to get it fixed.
In summary, once people sign up and pay, they will need to be set up on the site. Obviously, I won’t be around 24 hours a day to set people up, so you will need to be patient. You also need to choose a username at signup and this will be the name that you use to post on the forum, so please don’t use anything rude!
Once you receive your password for the site, you will gain access to the member’s section of the site. Here, you will gain access to all of my pre/post race analyses this month, access to a forum and chat room and I’m also going to be issuing a weekly report. The weekly report will contain a review of the week’s racing and things like horses to follow etc.
From the beginning of next month, all of my tips will be proofed on Racing-Index. This is simply so people can see how I’m doing and it saves me from having to record all of the results in detail. They will do it for me!
Unlike most other tipsters I guess, I don’t really want to use the proofing site as a way to advertise my skills. I’m determined to offer a service whereby I won’t be judged on my proofed selections. Obviously, most punters will judge me on these and rightly so but it’s not really the be all and end all with me. There are many ways to win money from using my knowledge and I tend to explore as many of these as possible!
I’ve made a decision to reduce the price for next month for people who read my blog and have been receiving the month’s free trial. I’ve also included an option for people to buy a single month or up to three months. Given the events of last month, anyone who is still not convinced by me should either buy one month or continue to read the blog and keep track of my performance on the proofing site.
I made a point of saying in my email today that I don’t really want people to sign-up who don’t believe in me. As I’ve said before, one reason for this site is simply to create a space where I can discuss horse-racing with people who have an interest in racing. There are lots of horse-racing forums out there and I’ve looked at lots over the past few years and none are very good in my opinion.
I gave the Handicap Forum a try and that worked great but only 3 people posted as I scared most of the people away who disagreed with me! lol
I know there are lots of you out there who buy tips and maybe have a keen interest in horse-racing who want to learn. In a few months time, you won’t need to buy tips again if you can pick up enough knowledge from me.
I’m sure a few of you think that this is going to be a great money-making adventure for me….As I’ve said before, I’m pricing it in such a way to ensure I cover the costs for my own time. I’m not interested in making a profit. I can make a profit from punting, I don’t need large subscriptions.
In time, if I prove myself over a sustained period, the profits will come naturally and people will come looking to be part of the service I provide. I’m confident enough in my own ability to forego short-term gains for a chance at long-term profits. In the meantime, this gives you all the opportunity to buy a service at a fraction of the price it is worth.
This weekend, I’ll be around the site on the chat room and I’ll hopefully catch up with some of you on there. Next week, I’ll arrange some time in the chat room to introduce myself formally to everyone and answer any questions. The selections will obviously start from the 1st of October but I’ll be around the site on Saturday, so I’ll post up some horses and ideas in the forum I guess.
Tomorrow is the last day of the free trial and I’m hoping to go out with a bang! I’ve already got a couple of selections and I’m away to look at more races now, so it could be a great day if I can find some winners.
I’ll use the blog this weekend to discuss the past month and things I’ve learnt as well as sharing my results. Depending on how tomorrow goes, it may be an interesting read…..
