Thank you for this episode and for discussing my question about 2 my competitors who are using Freemium model.
I agree with Freyfogle that it is not a proper strategy to rely on user ignorance about existing freemium competing products.
With my trial version I have good sales in certain countries and I afraid to have a decline in sales after switching to a Freemium model.
So my idea now is to make an experiment and switch to Freemium in other countries with other languages. So I will be able to see if the freemium’s “word of mouth” and freemium volume/features limitations actually work for my product.
If it works well then I switch to Freemium globally. If it doesn’t work and users from these new countries just use the product for free and don’t pay then I don’t loose much.
