According to the ‘Freemium’ business model, not only can you give something for free, but most businesses you know have already done so in one form or another, and so have you!

Free stop and Premium start?

In the Wix freemium business model, you get to use countless features and design possibilities for free, and you pay for a few features like the ‘connect your domain’ or ‘use Ecom store’ only when you need them.

How is ‘Freemium’ Relevant to your Small Business?
Chris Anderson, ‘Wired’ magazine’s editor-in-chief, wrote a wonderful book about the Freemium model – Free: The Future of a Radical Price.

His book makes a great and relevant read, is packed with useful tips and advice to small business owners, and now, you can listen and learn from it – for Free- on Chris’ Wix website.

We would like to thank Chris Anderson for his generous contribution to the Wix community.
