I downloaded Agenda only a few days ago, but I’ve already filled it out with info related to my work developing iOS apps. It’s a great environment for that.
Before I started writing this topic, I searched the community for “subscription.” I love that the reasoning for the one-time price ($9.99 or $24.99) is: You keep what you paid for when time runs out. You only miss out on new features after that.
I’m really into that. I might take inspiration from you folks if it’s really working out for you.
However, for me, justifying a one-time purchase of $24.99 to my girlfriend is a big ask. (She just doesn’t understand the value of software.) If there were a similar deal that gave you only one month of premium features and updates, it’s a much easier pill for her to swallow.
$25 divided into 12 months is roughly $2/month. If you charged $2.99 or $3.99 a month it would be a no-brainer decision for me to jump in. I’m also guessing I’m not alone.
If you made the $2.99/$3.99 tier more like the typical auto-renewing subscriptions out there you could intentionally allow this tier to be the one where stopping payment equals removal of features. Doing this would uphold the $24.99 tier as the one true Agenda fanboy’s tier. In some cases, if you went auto-renewing for monthly, you would also get the better 85%/15% cut after one year.
In the end though, I’m just selfishly asking for a tier I can afford more on a near-term basis. Eventually, maybe, I can splurge the rest at once.
