If you do Freemium then do it nicely...
Ensure the free version gives a usable and worthwhile experience. Let the user immerse themselves in functionality to get a good idea of whether the 'paid for' version will suit. Don't interrupt their initial experience with constant annoying pleas to pay for the full service. Don't block core functionality entirely, just limit it's scope. If they decide to pay, it will be because of perceived value and a desire to support the venture.

If you don't do Freemium like this then don't do Freemium.

Couldn't agree more. I just went through a trial period and I've been inundated with messages. I intended to carry on but hadn't had time to set it all up. Now I still need the technology but I don't feel much love for the company selling it.
