You know the ones right?
Those tools with their biggest selling point being:
“No Monthly Fees”
I stay as far away from those tools as I possibly can.
Reason being is this…
If a tool has NO MONTHLY FEES how on EARTH are they going to support said tool a year from now, two years, 5 years from now?
And even then…
What is the customer support like?
Earlier this year I was looking at a tool and was ready to sign up for said tool.
I visit the page only to find out:
“We are closed until Jan 11th”
I waited until Jan 28th.
And guess what?
Yep, they were still closed.
Sent them an email… only took 13 days for someone to get back to me…
You know what I didn’t buy?
Yep, that tool.
Ended up buying a much more expensive solution.
And in case you are wondering… yes they still are “closed” even though they said on their own page that they wouldn’t be.
So two issues with these “one-time payment” tools you see launching on ZJVoo and ParriorWlus particularly.
1 – The support of the tool in the form of upgrades, new features, etc.
(most likely won’t have them three to five years from now)
2 – The support of the tool from the support team
Without consistent revenue coming in every month how will they pay their support team, pay to keep the servers going, etc.
Just things to think about before you go buy the latest and greatest email autoresponder launching on those platforms.
I’ll stick with the companies that have been around for a few years.
