Writing of the week
Hi! I am excited about a little feature that I have added to the Product Database this week, the pricing 😍
It''s just a silly feature, but thanks to this you get a better scanability in a first instance of how much the economic value of the product can be.
The products have been categorised into four price blocks:
- Free Service: the product is free in all its forms, it is open source or totally free. Here would fall all projects made with much love and without profit.
- Freemium: the product offers features for open use but with project or use limitations, with the possibility of unlocking its full potential by paying a fixed amount or via subscription.
- Paid Service: the product can only be used by paying a monthly or one-off fee, with the possibility of a demo or free trials. There are certain products that offer long trial periods such as one or two months, but they are also included in this category.
- Enterprise: products focused on large corporations, where their features are oriented to large teams or very complex cases, making the price of these products very expensive for small teams or individuals.
Although at the moment it is only possible to identify the product through a label, I will soon try to add a possibility to filter by pricing or to exclude paid/enterprise products.
