I see a lot of SaaS companies using this model, but I can't find much info on it. Can anyone share their input? Thanks.
Forget about “build it and they will come.” Products without scalable distribution channels will fail to gain traction. Instead of hiring an expensive marketing team, take this course to learn SEO, content marketing, retargeting, viral loops, email marketing, and sales funnel optimization.

I have found pricing based off of a list or size of audience tends to get in the way of customer acquisition while pricing based on features (freemium model like Evernote for example) is much more helpful on acquisition and retention

Hey Joey - pricing should take into account more than details like social audience because you have to work through unit metrics and competitive analysises - these can drive much more accurate and sustainable pricing and packaging practices

Hi Joey, 
we price based on the volume of comments coming in. 
In some contexts that's based on the direct inbound communications and in other's it includes additional based on searches we setup.

I agree with Devin on this one. The simpler you make the pricing model/revenue stream and related value propositions, the easier it will be for you to describe why customers should buy from you in the first place. Plus, your revenue will be more predictable.
