Subscription v Purchase

Guys and Gals

We have had weeks of moaning its time to move on now!

If like me you bought the extensions then you must surely have worked out how much you needed to charge your clients to return your outlay. If it took or will take more than six months then are you in the right business? Are you doing enough business to survive in todays economy?

I don't think its a secret WA gave anyone who had made a major purchase in the last six months a 1$ fee for the first month. So you got/get to use everything for 30 days for just over 3 cents a day and there after for 67 cents per day!

Still people moan and moan - stop being techies and be business people for a few moments you should have planned to recover your investment and the fact that you can now subscribe should not be making any difference to that return of your investment or are you telling me that all of you who are unhappy are fantastic web developers but poor business people who are unable to plan and run your businesses.

Time to stop as we Brits say 'getting at' WA and start looking inward at what you do and making the best of what is now available to you.

Have a cheerful day.

Best regards

Jon Upton

Another way to look at this

If you develop websites for a living:
You should be able to recover $300 annually for tools that make you more productive without any trouble.

If you are happy with what you have now:
Nothing has changed.

If you don't develop websites for a living:
Buy what makes it easier for you, for the money you have to invest.

The IT industry changes rapidly and there aren't any guarantees that it won't be expensive to keep up. Our shelves are full of obsolete products, but we never expected the original developers to give us credit for past use of their tools. We just look for the best deal currently available for our current needs. Worrying about the deal the other guy got, just makes you crazy.

You can't expect a hardware store to sell a professional quality drill for less, just because they aren't going to use it professionally. How you use a tool is up to you. The cost/benefit analysis is also up to you.

Having more options is a good thing.
