Your Business is Getting Nimbler: An update from CEO Jon Ferrara

 As we approach the one-year anniversary of releasing our Nimble beta, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting our company.

I am humbled that more than 15,000 users have signed up over the last nine months with thousands spending almost four hours a day managing their social relationships and growing their businesses with Nimble.

I knew it was going to be an enormous challenge when we set out to create a new paradigm for CRM in 2010. We wanted to enable businesses to manage Relationships & Social Engagement in a simple and elegant way.

I am excited to tell you that we are weeks away from being “core vision complete” and will be releasing a major new version of Nimble in January 2012 that we are testing with select users today.

As you know, Nimble has been free during our testing phase. We wanted to wait until Nimble was something worth paying for…something truely helpful in growing a business.

Introducing Nimble Business Accounts

I am proud to say that Nimble is now ready to help you Turn Your Social Communities into Customers for Life. With our upcoming new product launch this January, we will start charging for Nimble.

A free single-user version will still be available for basic Social Relationship Management.

For business users who utilize Nimble as a team and need more professional functionality, we will be charging just $15 per user per month.

As a special thank you to everyone who has been a Nimble user prior to enacting this change, I would like to extend a 90-day free period on your Business accounts applicable once we intiate charging. More details on pricing here.

It would be wonderful if we could offer Nimble for free to everyone forever; however, I know you can understand that to continue to grow and meet the needs of our users, and to continue providing super cool new technologies, it is necessary to monetize our platform.

Webinar: New Features Planned for January 2012

Speaking of super cool new technology, please join me for a webinar this week to see the new Nimble features planned for our January 2012 release.

Thursday, December 8th @ 10am (GMT-08:00) Pacific Time (U.S. & Canada)

Thanks for being a part of the Nimble journey so far,
