Love the idea! But I have doubts about sustainability of the business - things in digital space change everyday and if you do all the videos manually, it could be very hard for you to catch-up and people won't pay for outdated content. Just thinking aloud...
That's why there's a subscription fee for joining - so I can afford the time to update videos and add new videos! The question is, are people willing to subscribe, even for up to date videos? That's what I'm trying to find out.
Can you explain the pricing model a bit more? I don't need weekly reports, I just want to pop in once and a while when needed.
The product monitoring service is an extra service - for just popping in, it still costs though, just much less. The reason I charge for this is it takes ages to record and annotate these videos, so it's the only way it's sustainable. Otherwise it will just stagnate and won't get updated like a lot of pattern libraries out there.
For $99 a year, you can access all the current 100+ annotated videos, plus updates and at least 10 new videos added every month. The pricing may change in the future, but there needs to be some form of income if this is to survive.
Hey DN! Userflow pro is a growing library of over 100 annotated Userflow videos. They help you easily see how the most popular products solve design problems.
It means you can avoid the hassle of signing up to loads of products to test their flows. Please check it out and let me know what you think!
very confused how the competitive tool works though. Like say, for example, we want to 'monitor' Evernote. What now?
You get a weekly recording of whatever flows you want to monitor on Evernote with any changes highlighted in the annotations
