Free to Trial Begins TodayPosted: February 15, 2011
We’re just about ready to flip the switch and move from a freemium service to a free trial basis. You can look a post or two back to see the reasoning behind the switch for me and what lead to the decision.
I emailed our existing active users back in early January with the announcement, along with news that we were dropping prices on our existing paid tiers. I also just sent out the announcement to them today that the switch was coming late this afternoon or early this evening so they know what to expect and what steps they need to follow to receive the grandfathering.
I have to say I was surprised that I didn’t get any negative feedback about the change, but I did receive some emails supporting it. So far, so good I guess.
