  • We have a free version. Not sure how much cheaper than free we can make it. Yes, we have premium features but thats how life is, if you want something better you just have to pay or miss out.

  • well if i use the free one you will get more $ from the search than what ill have to pay for monthly fee

    well if you will get from search in our website at least you can consider removing the branding and replacing it with the user logo or make a revenu share with your custommers like the conduit toolbar

  • Thats not necessarily true. Yes, if you had a large site of say 10,000 members or more.

    Also, we have an affiliate system which pays you "ongoing" residual income... We have just added it into the main dashboard for better visibility. We allow you to affiliate link the "powered by Jisbar" button.

    Also, regarding premium:

    The premium scripts we are starting to build are advertising scripts, so we reason it like this. Lets say, you place an ad on your site in the page peeler OR using the ad rotator... You could sell even one ad for $50. With our ad system, you can have multiple ads. So then, by selling just one ad, the Jisbar pays for itself for the whole year.

    The way we see it, its win - win in every aspect. We have thought about this already. You just gotta know how to work it.

  • p.s. about getting a freelancer in China.

    Let me explain something here. Yes, you can get a cheap guy to make you a bar for say $50 if youre lucky... and it will have basic functions. Then, that "guy" will walk... so then, after they walk you wont be able to do any more with it or to it. If your site gets an update and the script dies, youre stuck with old dead script. I think you could get someone maybe to create a bar for say $150 if youre (really) lucky to the same standard as Jisbar. So then, youd rather pay 3 years worth of Jisbar for a one-off that might die later because that "guy" wont be around to update it...

    Also, we are constantly adding new stuff to the Jisbar. It is only at 20% functionality of the plans we have for it. So then... thats worth pondering isnt it?

    This is what I've observed over the years in the web industry. Whenever you buy software for a "oneoff" you find after a year you usually have to pay for "upgrades" anyway... OR, the developer makes no money so they ditch their product...

    I see many software companies moving towards subscription base...

    One reason subscription is good, is because you will get fresh content and you know that youre buying something up to date. Otherwise, with one-offs you could actually be buying software thats 2-5 years old. Its true. I've seen it.

    So then, with the subscription model, it works, because the developers hang around because the company is making money to keep them hanging around.

    Make sense?

  • No, we dont force ads into those.

    Its a module so that you can configure your own ads, for your own site. Go to the Jisits and have a look at them (in the Your Bar area), you can work out how they work by playing with their configurations.

  • I’m a free hoe
    Tester, Please tell me you are kidding.

    For $5 in china you wont even find a programmer to talk to you, let alone program a complete custom toolbar for you.

    Some people want everything free, not sure why your are wasting your time Mr Admin answering questions like this.
