    New freemium approach for our software company 1DayLater - what's your opinion?

    Our web-based software - 1DayLater has implemented a new freemium model (Well we say 'new' - we've never come across it before - but no doubt someone has thought it up first!). I'd love to get some feedback from you guys.

    The idea is that rather than using a 30 day free trial our service offers 3 test-drive passes, which can be used at any time for access to the premium features (see our blog post on this) http://blog.1daylater.com/post/430390913/the-wondaylater-golden-ticket One benefit of this is that 'new and returning' users will not be faced with an expired account after 30 days. One business drawback (potentially) could be a cashflow one, but we're looking at ways to limit this.

    1DayLater is a service for tracking users time, money and mileage - via a web browser or mobile phone. It aims to help users with billing, mileage claims, organisation and with improving productivity.

    We would love some feedback on this our new freemium approach. ([email protected]) or please leave a comment on our blog!

    Thanks!
    Paul
