Christmas promotion !
In preparing for InfoQube v1.0 official release, we'd like to create a buzz around advanced information management tools...
In these days of simple single focused apps, isn't refreshing to see a new full featured information manager come to life ?
And what better ways to create a buzz than to offer free stuff... So from now until the end of 2015:
Everybody that likes the InfoQube Facebook page will have a chance to win an InfoQube lifetime professional license ($250 value)
Everybody that likes the InfoQube Facebook page and writes a small "I like PIMs and why" message will be entitled to receive a free InfoQube v1.0 personal license ($50 value).
Share this with as many of your friends as possible, that's what creating a buzz is all about !
p.s. I hope this post falls in the "OK to promote one's product, once in a while" category...
In my view, there might be a step missing here.
DC (DonationCoder.com) has had a few PIM / Info / Task / Work / Flow type threads, and in one of the earlier ones, I glanced at InfoQube, and had trouble making it fit my style. Part and parcel, somewhere along the way is the four year development period.
When you glance at software and it doesn't do X and if you're not drilling down every last speculation, you think it won't ever do X.
So I have remarked elsewhere I as a consumer get nervous when "suddenly" a developer wants serious money ($250 for a lifetime license etc), that's above a LOT of programs! Then you as an example "backdated" a promo for it by a week for "the rest of 2015" before the buying period sets in.
So compared to where you were two years ago, are you now "feature and bug complete ready at V1.0?"
I'll look at it again but if four years ago "it was free to try and use in Beta" I think there needs to be a window to try to find your "evangelist" users before you "flip a switch" and start charging.
Remember, people buy entire computers for the price of two of your Lifetime licenses, so value of money is crucial here. I have only paid for about seven programs that changed my life; all the cool little tools have to be free.
I do come from a business degree. When stuff is free, except "value of my time", people put up with a lot. When suddenly real money is on the line (not $2.88 from some app store), you get ranked in the hardball side of people's minds.
Are you gang as a company ready for that?
