FounderQuest S2 E7 | Is Offering A Free Plan Worth The Hassle?

This week on FounderQuest, Josh is back and shares his hot takes from RubyConf in Nashville. Be wary of the ghost pepper oil!

There’s no such thing as a free lunch, however, there is such a thing as a free Honeybadger plan. The guys talk about their decision to offer a free plan alongside Honeybadger's paid plans and how it impacted the overall business. The guys also break down some of the costs involved with the plan such as cannibalization of paid accounts and customer support time.

Listeners will also learn about Ben’s Eye of Sauron approach to fiscal management and an acquisition strategy based around companies named after honey badgers.
