As a follow up to the much discussed question of "Is Freemium Dead?" I wanted to give you guys more of an insight into my situation specifically.
I am working on a project called Newny. Newny is a platform where Tutors/Researchers/Creators/entreprenuers can host discussions, invite participants then hold interesting conversations. Once the conversation is over, participants can leave valuable feedback for the hosts.
My question as a first time solo founder is:
Do I either use a trial period before I monetise it? E.g. 15 - 30 day trial then £5 - £10/m subscription
Do I make the platform FREE to use but monetise down the line.
[Depending on traction of course]
Create an advertising section that participants are redirected to after leaving some feedback (show relevant ads to the discussion[Ads from other hosts]). Or A freemium where I innovate on current features and put a paywall up like Medium.
Would love your opinions on this.
