Wondering whether you should go Freemium? 

To define your pricing, you must first understand your customers intimately and know how they value your product.

For Saas startups, there isn’t a magic formula. Rolling out a free offer can be risky or rewarding, and timing is essential. ☝

In this talk, Nick Franklin, Founder & CEO of ChartMogul, shares his experience switching to a freemium model. ✨

He covers:
- How to chose your pricing model
- Pros & cons of Freemium
- What to consider when switching
- Results and profitability over time

Nick Franklin is Founder & CEO of ChartMogul, the Berlin-based analytics company helping hundreds of subscription businesses better understand and grow their recurring revenue.

Prior to ChartMogul, Nick spent 5 years at Zendesk, joining in 2009 (as the 9th member of the team) and leaving in 2014 after the company went public. Nick served as Zendesk's head of EMEA region (2 years), followed by head of Asia (3 years) where he oversaw the expansion of both regions from a handful of customers to millions of dollars in recurring revenue.

  13. 13. The downsides of having a very cheap (vs free) plan… Money sets an expectation of service Customers need need billing/invoicing/collection/etc. These tiny customers cancel frequently, skewing your churn metrics.

  23. 23. Future success metrics. What % of accounts hit the freemium limit within 6 months? What’s the avg (or median) length of time it takes a free user to hit the limits? What % of accounts that hit the limit actually upgrade to the $100 paid plan? Over time what % of revenues end up coming from former freemium users?
  24. 24. Don’t do it if… Your main channel is going to be outbound. Your plan is to sell primarily to enterprise. You’re don’t strive towards being 100% self-service. Having a lot of inbound flow doesn’t help you much. You’re in a very niche market.
  25. 25. Consider it if… You’re trying to ‘consumerise’ a space. Your strategy is to have a very large volume of customers. You strive towards being 100% self-service. Your support team can handle the expected load. Your infrastructure can handle it. You’re in a large market.
  26. 26. Thank you.
