InContext Pricing – Adobe to charge for service
Well, following my previous post on the new CMS service from Adobe, it seems that Adobe are going to charge for the InContext service.
Understandably, this has led to several heated views on the Adobe forums, see this one for example, as paying Dreamweaver users seek to offer a service to their clients.
My view is that we pay for the software to create sites and this software now includes a new feature; a feature to build editable regions so we can allow our clients to update their sites themselves. This is something that would offer another level of customer service and a much-valued add-on to clients. Asking them to then pay us a monthly fee for this feature is ridiculous and in some cases, may be overkill for the clients who only need to make very small changes infrequently.
Perhaps Adobe should consider waiving fees to their customers who register their products, as an incentive and also a thank you for paying for their software in the first place!other page
