Freemium Business Model Examples

Paid content – Accenture bets on subscriptions, and so do we.

A whole bunch of subscription companies today offer a freemium option to entice users to try out their product. Most of the time, the majority of users remain on the freemium plan while a small portion convert to paying customers. Some of the more notable freemium subscriptions include:

  • Pandora
  • Spotify
  • Dropbox
  • Hulu
  • Linkedin

The trick to a successful freemium model is to have enough users so that the small minority of paying customers can sustain your entire business in a whole new world of Subscriptions. The alternative is to find the right price point or strategy to convert more of your users to paying customers (think Whatsapp's $1 per year plan). That means you need to be very targeted and intentional with who you want in your paying customer-base.
