Interesting notes on freemium
Freemium is a good way to acquire individual employees who can then champion to buyers within the company (lead gen).
Cancel
Having users on your side is vital. Want them to "lead a revolt."
Cancel
it really depends on if the "little people" want the CEO to buy the product.
Cancel
How often do they actually use the product?

Build a score for each signup ("how healthy in the first 30 days")

Build a product you want to use yourself - or figure out how you will use it yourself.

  • The reason you typically hire a sales force is that your product sucks (it can't sell itself).
  • Make your product not suck first.
  • Partnerships are essentially outsourcing your sales force. So do you want to outsource selling a product that still sucks?
  • Cancel
  • Difference between sales (pushing) and support
  • Having people to support is needed.
  • Having people to push is not necessary.

    Often times the free users are the ones who aren’t taking the time to learn the site before firing off support tickets. These users make up the vast majority of your users. You spend most of your time supporting them. This stretches your resources thin and lowers the quality of your customer support

    Dropbox’s numbers game: Dropbox CEO Drew Houston says you should know one thing about freemium: “It is a numbers game, so bust out your Excel spreadsheet. It’s all about finding things in the margins — lots of little things rather than one key thing.”

    Libin’s key metric is comparing revenue per active user with variable expenses. At this point, the company makes $0.25 per month per active user, and spends $0.09 on variable expenses like infrastructure, customers service and network operations. He said freemium can work for any business if you have 1) a great long-term retention rate, 2) a product that increases in value over time and 3) variable costs.

    Technicolor

    Architects Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat were brought in to infuse local color into the property. The team, known for their bold use of color, advocated recreating The Saguaro around a palette of 14 vibrant tones found in native desert wildflowers.

    The brilliant colors now adorn each balcony and patio and anchor the guestrooms, while also enlivening the indoor and outdoor public spaces. The color set follows the light spectrum, which in turn creates different perspectives of the hotel according to the time of day.
