I've never had much luck with upgrading someone, in anything. It's as if they see it as a free
hand out and then assume they don't need to do anything else. I'm not saying everyone is that
way. I'll just say that for the most part, it never has worked for me.
It's never a good idea to upgrade people especially if you have had no contact with them. The
best thing to do is to enter into an unsigned contract with them. In other words, you should
email them directly first. If there is not an email by their name, I absolutely would not upgrade
them. If there is an email by their name, I would contact them and if they don't reply, I would
not upgrade them.
The only way I would upgrade them is if I had contact with that member and the member agreed
to a specific amount of work. For example, once I had earned $17 from that members activity, then
I would upgrade that member. Some sort of contract like that. You work, I upgrade your account
if you want me to but I need to see at least $17 worth of earnings otherwise, it is not worth it for
me to upgrade you.
