KingOfTheNice The hell are you talking about? Netflix is like $10, how the hell are Webnovel justifying the cost? It's ridiculous, the only people willing to pay $25 per month are the whales already spending more than that. The majority of people wont pay for it - which completely defeats the purpose. A monthly sub should be affordable for everyone, that way it increases demand for a product that has virtually no supply limit or costs. 100 people paying $25 is way less than 1000 people paying $10.
I have no sources to back this up, but I imagine most users are free. Paying $5-$10 per month for a novel or 2 isn't worth it. After that are the premium crowd (me) who do see that as worth it. Finally, there are the whales (the least populated group).
If you make the Elite Membership $5-$15:
- You'll lose money from the whales (but you're doing that with the $25 anyway, so it doesn't matter)
- You'll guarantee money from the premium crowd - most will sign up, they're getting more for the same price.
- You'll draw in free users who will now think $5-$15 is worth it for the whole library.
As it stands, $25/month will only lose your whale money.
Unless I'm just horribly mistaken and have no business sense whatsoever
