The No Pricing Manifesto | Medium

As a SaaS company, our main KPI was our MRR (Monthly Recurring Revenue). With this per-seat pricing model, we were focused on finding new projects ready to pay for Forest.

Our experience with early pilots and paying customers helped us prove that companies were getting value from Forest and were ready to pay for it. This was a huge win for the project. However, we realized that the way we used to approach the market was not optimal.

While more and more mature companies were showing a genuine interest in Forest’s value proposition, we were creating friction for startups. This was leading to a weaker adoption within smaller teams.
