I\’m surprised no one has posted in my group about the new Crowdbooster yet. Maybe due to the holidays?
Well, it\’s nearly the end of 2012 and before I post my 2012 summary let this be my last social media post for the year.
If you don\’t know it yet, the new Crowdbooster is getting rid of the freemium model. And they announced it 2 days after Christmas. Just so happened that I did a short review of CrowdBooster in YouTube a day before Christmas. So now that review is quiet irrelevant already because there is no more free plan. I don\’t know if they could have picked a better timing for the announcement but ditching a free plan is always hard for the first adopters of the service.
Starting March 1, 2013 the free plan will no longer exist and in order to continue using Crowdbooster you must upgrade to a paid plan, starting at $9. At the moment there is no $9 plan posted in their pricing guidelines yet. Let\’s hope that other perks, such as additional account slots, will be included when you upgrade to the cheapest paid plan.
I have been using this great tool for a while but I am not so vocal about it until lately. They should know what they are doing because Crowdbooster is changing its business model and all the risks must have been studied first beforehand.
It\’s been a great free service and I believe anyone who finds this helpful for their business would upgrade.
What do you think of this recent announcement by Crowdbooster? Let me know in the comments section below.
