Should I give 3 free snipes per month for my eBay auction sniping service?

    I was wondering if it would be a good idea that I start giving 3 free snipes per month for users of my eBay auction sniping service in the hopes it would increase the sign up conversion rate and lead to more payments.

    Would it be a good idea? If so:

    -Should it be 3 total bids per month (won or not) or allow users to place bids until they've won 3 items during the month
    -Should those that pay the 1% fee on items they win also get their 3 first bids for free each month or should the 3 free bids be cancelled as soon as the user pays?

    Thanks

    That's a tough one. You've gotta do something that your competition isn't doing though.

    Most people probably don't even understand the benefits of having a sniper bidder so you could maybe provide some free video training on buying on eBay and then explain to them why it's so much easier to have a sniper bidder doing all the bidding rather than sitting up in the middle of the night placing bids.. LOL

    I already do offer fixed monthly/yearly rates for unlimited use which I'm not aware of competitors offering. I also have a 1% of won auctions plan similar to the competition for lower volume buyers.

    Would 3 free bids per month be a good idea?

    Thanks
