Changes to Free Services Coming in September
Epic Free Plan Remains
Starting in September, SimplyCast will be changing the sending limits on all free plans as well as changing all free applications from unlimited to a standard subscription package. The Epic Free Plan is still an option for those who need it, but there will be a point where you will be required to upgrade. This will make things very easy to understand what you are getting and what you are paying.
1. Our Epic Free Plan will change to 2,000 contacts/month (it is 5,000 credits currently). This is only valid with our email marketing service. A free contact-based package is what you have been asking for and now you have it. Send to the same 2,000 contacts as much as you want each month for free.
2. Our free applications such as Twitter marketing and Facebook marketing will now be project-based when it comes to price. They will be free to use until you need to create more than a few projects. From there, you can upgrade and get unlimited projects plus the extras you get to choose. You can upgrade to our basic package starting as low as $9.99/month.
Now that you know what we are changing, here is why we are doing it.
Simply put, we want to ensure you are getting your return on investment.
SimplyCast is all about providing the best user experience possible for everyone using our all-in-one marketing solution. That has been our goal since day one and it will never change.
Our Free 4 Life plan for early adopters and the Epic Free Plan for new clients have both been a resounding success and it just shows that a solution like ours does not have to cost an arm and a leg to get results.
There is, however one dark cloud that comes with "free" and the team at SimplyCast needs to take action to better optimize our solution for our dedicated users.
By offering 100% free services, there comes with it, a lot of misuses. Misuse that takes time away from our developers and support staff. We want our resources being used to optimize existing and new services, helping those who really need assistance and finally, keeping everything that goes in and out of our system compliant and safe.
This is why we need to make changes when it comes to our free services.
Stay tuned for more news on this as we will update you with specifics soon.
If you have any questions, or concerns, please contact us and we will be happy to answer your questions. We feel in the long run, these updates are necessary to maintain the standards you have come to expect from us.
As a final note, if you sign up today, you can still use everything for free for a few more weeks. No time like the present to grow your business.
