Would it be more wise to add paid options to a startup later on or from the start? The paiad options would of course take extra time to develop since they would be an enhancment on the "free"version therefore taking more time and lengten the Time to market period left for a release.
I saw some big sites previoulsy adding the premium membership options on the sites like you have unlimited credits or you are full member without adding the full member features to the site, then at launch then added those features and removed the unlimited credits to say 20 or 50
what would be a good idea to handle this?
Making it free at first I think it will attract alot of users and free publicity but would cost me money for hosting costs.
And then at wich point would one add paid options?
