I have got 2 lifetime , and 8 monthly subscriptions after launching pro membership on Visa List. The remaining were failed transactions. This was an experiment i started 4 weeks ago which i have been sitting on it for a long time. I was not really sure what was the most valuable information that travelers really need so they wont mind paying. After 8 months of launching, looking at Nomad list and starter story, i finally put in a set of features that i thought can be useful for Pro members
I was still very skeptical but none the less integrated with stripe, got it working in two weeks and finally put it out there. The first one i got was a lifetime subscription and was super stoked to see that. But after that over a week i didn't get successful subscriptions though i got users who wanted to subscribe but ultimately failed for different reasons life bank decline, not enough money or high risk. This last week , it was a rush, i got a one monthly , and two lifetime subscription in a day.
I'm happy that the experiment paid off. But i still think i need to provide even more value to paid users. I'm open to any / all of my fellow indie haker suggestions.
