Today we're starting to send reminders to those who have outgrown their subscription plan to upgrade to a more appropriate tier.
Emails will be sent throughout the month according to the billing cycle. Haven't focused on this until now so let's see how it affects our MRR.
@markosaric what do you use to send out E-Mails btw / for hosting? Google? If I do the ground work, would you be interested to eventually file an antitrust *something* to EU commission against Google for keeping E-Mail infrastructure hostage?
@jonn we're completely de-googled. we use HEY for customer support emails and Postmark for weekly/monthly email reports and emails such as this reminder. we've disabled all tracking.
for email at least there are many alternatives so not the biggest issue to de-google for those who want to
@markosaric I'm having all my infra on servers I trust, I see no way to de-google E-Mail for the new company on 0$ budget.
So basically I concede to the fact that my mail will never be delivered to people who asked for it, like customers, etc.
Or am I missing something?
@markosaric but thank you very much for your suggestions! Once we have budget, we'll look into sending E-Mail with HEY/Postmark 🎉
@jonn ahh ok i'm not sure how it can work on a $0 budget. both Hey and Postmark are services that we pay for
@markosaric Hi. I really love plausible.io and already promoted it to my company which is now using it as primary tool.
But would there be a chance to get a rate for private usage? Cannot afford the 4€ per month (as a normal family it's a lot of money what you have to invest: private mail, private website,...).
Maybe a rate with 1K or 2K pageviews per month (but cheaper.
Perhaps you can think about it?
@case2tv nice one, thank you for promoting Plausible!
we've tried to be as fair and affordable as possible while also being able to run a sustainable project that pays our cost/salaries.
as we grow and improve our infrastructure, i'm hoping that we'll be able to go even lower for personal/smaller plans.
main problem with going lower than $4 (say $1 or $2) will be that pretty much the whole amount will go to our payment processor (they take a fixed fee plus percentage of all transactions)
