I organized 4 giveaways, Vyper, Kingsumo, Upviral,Viralloops. The one and only PRO of Kingsumo was the one-time fee and no-recurring monthy fee. Less than 35% if subscribers opens my emails - and usually my CLICK rate is over 40%+.

Maybe it's worth it when you sell something for lifetime then you change the model. just like Kingsumo is doing now... Beside that, lots of freeloader crappy leads, lack of positioning. This entire model sucks, lots of hype and doesn't provide value.

Pros:

one-time fee was the only pro

Cons:

sold me as lifetime, changed model to saas + lots of crappy leads

We are reviewing pricing but wanted a web version as this was the major bottle neck for most people to use KingSumo.

I've just bought KingSumo WP Developer version (Lifetime) a few months ago, too bad it's now releasing SAAS version (Monthly), can you offer free upgrade or one-time upgrade cost (like AppSumo's other product - $39 or $49 for Lifetime) to all existing users? I hope you will seriously consider this suggestion. Thanks!

Which was your recommendation? And how'd you feel about Vyper?

I bought the lifetime license 3 months back. Are they going to charge me monthly now to get the new features? Feels like a bad deal.

Pros:

Same as previous version (Wordpress plugin with 1-time payment)

Cons:

Now monthly payments (SaaS model)

The fully customizable and self-hosted version is 1-time payment and we made this version completely free. The paid version removes branding. We are evaluating the pricing. Thanks for the comment. The team worked super hard to make this for you.

No Etienne Juneau, I've read their FAQ, both versions will work separately. However I prefer SAAS version (easy to maintain), hopefully they will allow us to upgrade to SAAS version without monthly cost (one-time cost).

Almost ready to launch FlipBooklets v2!

I love the concept and the look but I've given it a quick test and there may be a flaw. I don't think there is any verification to check that people have actually carried out the extra entry actions (liked, followed, shared on social for example). I've entered a competition, clicked all the options to share and like on social so I can get more entries. However I've not actually followed through and shared or liked anything and it has still counted the extra entries. It would be great to get verification of the actions to make sure people follow through and really help the giveaways gain more traction.

Pros:

Easy to setup Looks great

Cons:

No verification on "extra entry" actions
