Pet Peeves

With all the web services out there today there are some truly amazing ones. Some I might even be willing to pay for. Recently I came across 37 signals which might have some great ideas and services. However; I’ll never know. When I click ‘sign up for free’ I am immediately shown a giant price sheet which lets me know just what features I won’t be getting. Why do this to your (potential) customers? Instead why not hook me with all the cool free features and then show me all the cool features I could get as well if I spend a little money? I see this all to often and every time I do I instantly leave the site without a further look.

Do you really expect people to sign up for the paid services without trying the free version?¬† What’s the point of slowing me down don’t you want to get me trapped as soon as possible?
