Freemium Model


Definition: Freemium Model is a business model used by online companies in which users get the basic product or service for free and must pay for additional services. In other words, it is a "try before you buy" business model and experience to the users.
Multiple factors contribute to the Freemium strategy's success. The company can attract a user base without spending on marketing campaigns or the traditional sales force model because of the available free services. Freemium models are often more successful than the other limited-term offers because of the cumbersome cancellation processes or users find unlimited free access more appealing.
