Default HELP with CGC

I'm curious about signing up for a CGC account. Is it worth it and what tier? Mostly would be the new release titles each month. Cost efficient wise? Probably 10-15 books a month. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks guys.

If you plan on that many books/month then I would go with Elite level since you get a 15% discount. For example modern fast track is $28/comic.

If you submit 10 comics/month then:

Associate Level: $252 (with 10% discount)
At the Elite level: $238 (with 15% discount)

Associate level for the year cost would be: $3024
Elite level for the year cost: $2856
Difference: $168, it wouldn't be worth it since the cost of elite is $275 and associate is $39

but if you bump up the submission to 15 comics/month for a year:

Associate: $4536
Elite: $4284
Difference: $252, this is worth it since the savings is greater than what you would pay for with the elite versus associate.

So you would have to submit more than 10 comics/month for 12 months to take full advantage of the Elite level but it's worth it if you consistently submit more than 10 comics a month.

When I joined they didn't have the Elite Level so I joined the Premium...but when I renew next year I won't do premium because I just don't submit enough. I'll do associate level...I only submit about 10 comics every 3 months or so.

Hope that helps...you can run the #'s but the breaking point seems like 12 comics/month consistently for 12 months...

Difference of $168

It also depends on what you submit...if you can "predict" what will be hot and do a modern fast track and be the 1st to sell then you maximize your profits! You definitely can make some $$$ but it's a gamble guessing what will be hot.
