I added some text on "Why we have a free plan" for tinylytics and is also linked under the free plan benefits. Let me know what you think. Feedback is welcome.

I see a lot of sites saying "free is not free, you're basically selling your soul". No such soul selling, that I know of, here.

@vincent What can I say. I'm so grateful that honest working people like you exist. After trying the free plan I decided to subscribe and I'm very happy for it. So thank you for your work.

@vincent I keep seeing mention of an annual plan… what does that cost, and how do you switch from monthly?

@leeperry it’s $50 (plus taxes/vat) a year. I can switch you over manually as the current procedure with my current payment provider doesn’t really allow for easy switching via their API. Something that will be fixed… soon 😬

@vincent Thanks, Vincent. I’m using your very generous free plan at the moment and I appreciate it. It’s looking likely that I’ll upgrade in a couple of months. In the meantime I’m finding that the free plan has everything I need. It’s very impressive.

@vincent that would be ace if you could. How does one pay - presumably from billing tab?

@leeperry that’s something that is super complicated with my payment provider now, so I didn’t implement that logic. I’ll email you some time today and we can agree on a date of switch.

@vincent Feedback: Super great this page exists. I agree it’s important to point out that you’re not doing anything scummy with their data just because they’re not paying. But I think what you wrote might work better as the companion blog post than as this marketing page for tinylytics. It’s a bit long IMO (I skipped reading it the first time). Perhaps you could make a TLDR version (Something like…I have a free plan bc I want everyone to have access to simple analytics that doesn’t sell or do anything scummy with their data regardless of their budget or lack thereof. It’s supported by everyone who pays for the more advanced features, and it’ll stay that way.) and then link to this more personal write up on your blog. But that’s just my two cents. 🙂
