I have a software as a service model for content management system.
What I'm wondering is do I have to have a free version tier in order to sell it? Meaning do I need to have some threshold of use so its just enough to sample it and use it but not enough for the real world? I'm not sure if that is the best idea because of it using a CDN to serve content. I have to pay for the CDN content for each free account and I would definitely lose money if there wasn't enough users actually paying for it. What should I do for any who have experience with this sort of thing? Also, if you have any further advice about getting it noticed or VC or angel stuff, I'm all ears. Basically anything you have to say I will listen to at this point so thanks for any feedback in advance.
