Subscription or one-time purchases?

Subscription or one-time purchases?

I think consumers are becoming burnt out on subscriptions. There's a subscription for everything these days. So I'm going to try to build my SaaS with a one-time purchase model. It's a little different though. Here's how I have Waitlisty set up today:

  1. You sign up for a Waitlisty account.

  2. You create a project. A project (at the time of writing) has 2,000 free submissions available.

  3. At this point you can take your free project in one or two paid directions.

Buy more submissions

We won't stop collecting submissions when you hit your free quota. However, you won't be able to see or export them until you buy more. You can buy packs of 100, 500, 1,000, 10,000, or 100,000 submissions.

Purchase the pro package

With the free version of Waitlisty, you have a limited number of color selections with the form customization tool. You also can't add custom code to your form (if you're into that kind of thing).

The thank-you page that is displayed after submission is also not customizable until you purchase the pro package. The pro package gives you access to a neat color picker for any hex color, and the ability to customize your post-submission thank-you page. This includes the ability to remove the Waitlisty branding.

Hopefully, I made the right choice. And I guess only time will tell. Currently, we're still sitting at $0 revenue but traffic seems to be picking up and we've had a few signups over the weekend.

Stay tuned for more Waitlisty fun!
