is a great example of a freemium business model, one of the best in my opinion. They are very good at sharing their data and strategical thoughts around the model. Is Evernote the best service at executing this?
Even better perhaps is their retention of over 40% of their users over a long period of time. What I mean with this is that you use their service for some time and lets say a year or so, after you have invested a significant amount of your time with the product, they hit you with the premium blocker. I would assume this is a genius move for them as after a user has put so much into the product you pay whatever you have to pay to continue using the service.
I am looking for some feedback on other companies that offer a freemium business model and your thoughts/experiences with using them. Especially my interest relies on the freemium to premium transition as being free forever is not sustainable. While I know freemium models are not for every business, I believe it may be for us in the short term to grow fast.
