As I learned with my big experiment site back in the day, it's far better to charge a small amount for a short trial, say one to three dollars for the first week.
You'll definitely sort those people out that are coming to you just because they can (so called tire kickers), and those that are coming to you because they’re serious about what your business has to offer.
I've got a real life story for you here.
A good friend of mine set up a site when we were in our early days on the scene. He had a pretty good product backed up by a multi level affiliate system, or a matrix of sorts.
Anyway, he started promoting and all was going well, until word started spreading around some of his affiliates about some guaranteed signups site, that sold signups to anything free, for a fee.
A real resource disaster case that one, because it rendered the pay plan almost useless. Make sure you do this one right and offer a trial for a small fee if your product permits. You could be looking at a similar costly situation otherwise.
Not sure how to go about getting leads, but still be making sales at the same time without interrupting your sales process? Not sure what to charge for your trial, or how you can even adapt a trial to your business in the first place?
We'll talk through these points here.
