As many of us fans of Fibery here, I’m always looking where else I could use Fibery. I also realise that getting Fibery adopted well in the work environment is really tough (I’m sure you’re painfully aware of that).
I overall like your pricing model, but I think there might be one word-of-mouth sales avenue that you may have not considered fully: hobby clubs and interest groups.
Most of the ones I know (sports, design, product) either run purely on messaging (WhatsApp, Slack, etc.) and then some Google Docs or maybe Notion. Most don’t have a budget, but will have people using tools and doing stuff much similar to the work environment. So if people can experience Fibery in this environment, they may be able to convince others to try and thus bring Fibery back into new work places.
In my particular example we had started using Slite like 7–8 years ago (because of my hatred of Google Docs and because both Notion and Slite were nascent back then). And sure, we’ve always remained on that free tier. But as Fibery has things like forms and entities, I would love to switch over to Fibery, as that would allow us to do things like attendance signups, membership tally, basic expenses and all that much much nicer.
However, none of the pricing tiers fits. What I would love as an option:
- USD 100 a year
- Max 3 spaces
- Admins: max 2
- Members: max 10
- Unlimited read-only users, integrations, databases, entities, but fair use
- Not for profit
I imagine that you are not convinced just yet. Looking forward to your questions.
I shall say this: Using Notion for organising one of my extra-curricular efforts has convinced my team members there to use Notion for their personal stuff. I definitely think Fibery would be 10x more useful when I need to collect signups, tally and collect fees, etc. and iPhone/Mac is the perfect example of how people’s personal tooling choice was borough back into the workplace. Especially as you’re aiming for startups and smaller teams I think it’s good to have had more people exposed to Fibery.
