Freemium Business Models

Discussion started by Simon Richardson , on Saturday, 13 November 2010 19:09

Hi all looking for some feedback from the group regarding some monetisation business models that relate to online services...


With Try Before You Buy Offers do you prefer to time limited full featured access or infinite access with capacity limitations?


When paying for online services do you prefer to pay annually for  a discount or do you prefer to pay a little more and get billed monthly with the ability to cancel at any time? Consider this for amount in the region of $47p/ ($4.97 p/m), $97p/a ($8.97 p/m), $197 p/a (16.97p/m)


Do any of these options encourage you to purchase when you normally would not?

Hi Simon,
Depends on the product but usually I want full access so I can make an informed decision about the total service and like to pay annually to get the discount.
However monthly payments as a trend is gaining in popularity although it pays havoc with your cash flow!
