Want a FREE trial to our subscription service? Now is your chance. Starting Friday, June 1, we will offer a seven (7) day free trial to our Client Services site. All you have to do is send us an email to: freetrial at hurricanetrack.com and tell us that you are interested in the free trial. We’ll send you a username good for seven days- from June 1 through June7.

What do we offer our subscribers? A lot.

We have had the subscription service since 2005 when it was almost exclusively just live video during our field missions.

Since that time, the service has grown and expanded to include a daily video briefing that is broadcast live on our own private ad-free stream. What’s more, our members can chat with us in real time, interact with each other, post questions, links to interesting info/data, etc. And, it’s troll-free. People value what they pay for and no one causes problems, posts spam links or any of that nonsense that you see on public chats.

We also have 30 frame satellite and radar loops, specialized tracking maps and Stormpulse maps (one is even full screen).

In addition, we set up our own 5-meter wind towers which feed back live wind and pressure data along with a web cam image every 60 seconds! This is exceptional updating compared to many other sources which might update every 5 mins to as much as an hour.

Our most popular exclusive feature during a landfall event are our remote cams that we place in the worst possible conditions to stream live video back to our subscribers. We have done this during Katrina, Rita, Wilma, Gustav, Ike, Earl and Irene with excellent results. All of these video streams are also 100% ad-free, supported by our members.

Our memberships range from $59.95 for a season pass (expires November 30, 2012) or $99.95 for an annual membership. Since we offer off-season info, live updates and other non-hurricane news and reporting, we have about 30% of our member base comprised of annual subscriptions and growing.

What we offer is unique. We have the experience of being in over 20 hurricanes so we know what we’re talking about. We use that knowledge base to explain in great detail, while making it easy to comprehend, what to expect and what the impacts will be. Then, we TAKE YOU THERE. How many other pro weather sites do that? Last count, NONE. They are not set up to do that. We are. We take you to the landfall area, set up our equipment and keep our members up to date literally second by second. It’s not “storm chasing” so much as it is a coordinated effort to gather information from the landfall zone and pass it along to interested parties all over the world. Since 2005, it has worked very well.

If you’re looking for entertainment, this is not for you. It’s not a road show but a mission in to the greatest storms on Earth. We have over 350 private clients and they’ll agree- there is nothing else like what we offer and it goes so far beyond just being able to stream live video from our vehicle. Ask for a free trial and you’ll see. If not, we’ll continue to offer the same level of public information and updates that we have since 1999 when it all began.

HurricaneTrack.com Client Services season pass and “early bird” specials now available

As we approach the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, we have made available two great plans for our subscription service. One is the season pass which gives you 100% access to all of our Client Services features for just $59.95 from now through November 30. That’s right, only one payment for the entire season. We had several dozen subscribers who really enjoyed this package last year and hope to expand upon that this time around. For those who took advantage of it in 2011, now is a great time to sign up and get started again.

For those wishing to have a smaller monthly subscription, you have until the end of the month to sign up for our $9.95 per month “early bird” special. This too was quite popular with almost a third of our member base last season.

Of course, we still offer our annual plan of $99.95 which is billed only once per year. More than half of our members are on this plan and we appreciate their continued support since the inception of our service back in 2005.

Why sign up at all? It’s simple. Our subscription service is like none other. Members get access to 100% ad-free live video feeds, a daily video update and briefing during the hurricane season, off-season video blogs, live chat with our staff and other members (troll free I might add since EVERYONE is a paying member, no free-loading troublemakers like you see on other public chats), 30 frame satellite and radar loops, large Stormpulse maps, several types of our own Java tracking maps and a member forum. And last year we introduced member streaming where by our members can stream THEIR weather to other members right from their computer and web cam. It is amazing to see our streams sure, but adding in member streams as well was a fantastic idea (one of our members suggested it) and it works so easy. All of these features make up our Client Services site.

So, if you’re interested in going beyond our blog, we have an extensive menu of subscription based services at a fair price. Our clients include folks from the insurance industry, emergency management, media, hospital management, power companies, insurance adjusters, pilots, retirees who own property or otherwise live along the coast, and many other segments of our population who just have an interest in hurricanes. In fact, 9% of our memberships are from people outside of the United States with Great Britain leading the way. We are very proud of what we offer in return for the hard earned money of our private clients. What they get in return is our dedication, innovation and an experience like none other. We spend most of the time talking about what may or may not happen tropics-wise but when the time comes and we have to head out in to the field, our technological advances really shine.

Check out a full description of Client Services here and sign up today! You’ll be part of a growing group of like-minded people who are all very helpful to one another and us too! The interactivity between the members and us is incredible and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

Android/Smartphone optimized pages coming to Client Services

In our modern world of iPhones, Android powered devices, tablets and portable, long lasting laptops, it is more important than ever for Web content to be available on such devices. As you know by now, we are introducing an iPhone app later this spring. It will contain a specific set of features that will serve the ever-growing iOS market. At the same time, we do not want to ignore the vast numbers of Android and other Smartphone device owners who use our site for news and information. We have a plan….

Beginning April 1, we will roll out a mobile version of our Client Services site, the subscription service that we offer for those wishing to access more features than we can offer on the free site. The cornerstone of our Client Services site is the live video ability. Since 2005, we have offered multiple live video feeds during our hurricane field missions. Since that time, we have added satellite and radar loops, live chat, a daily video blog (live broadcast and then archived) as well as many other features that have made the service the success that it is today.
