#397: Chris Liscio (part 3)


Today we conclude our conversation with Chris Liscio of SuperMegaUltraGrovy (SMUG), makers of Capo, an app that helps you learn to play music. Today we discuss how Chris reaches Capo’s target market to let them know about the app, why he intentionally chose an annual subscription for Capo (rather than monthly or weekly), and the mechanics of how freemium is implemented in Capo.
