Since the beginning, Basecamp has been marketed as a collaboration tool for small businesses (or small groups inside larger businesses).
However, over the years we’ve also heard from many thousands of people who use Basecamp outside of work. They’ve turned to Basecamp to help them manage home improvement projects, hobby projects, volunteer projects, school projects, weddings, etc.
But one complaint we’ve heard is… Basecamp is priced for businesses, not for personal side projects.
So today we’re going to make it easier for people to use Basecamp for their non-work projects. Today we launch Basecamp Personal.
Basecamp Personal is priced for personal projects. Instead of paying a monthly subscription fee, you can buy a Basecamp Personal project for $25. That’s a one-time-fee. Just $25, and it’s yours. Need another project down the road? Buy another one for $25. Buy one, buy many – buy just what you need, as you need it, and never have to worry about paying a monthly subscription.
How else is Basecamp Personal different from Basecamp?
Basecamp Personal projects include 1 GB of file space and you can collaborate with up to five people. There are a few other differences, too. Here’s how Basecamp Personal compares to the full version of Basecamp.
Available exclusively for current Basecamp users
For the next few months, Basecamp Personal is available exclusively for current Basecamp users. You don’t have to be the Basecamp account owner – you just have to be a user on a Basecamp account, any Basecamp account.
Down the road we plan on opening up Basecamp Personal to anyone. But for now, it’s just for people who already use Basecamp.
Start a project today
So if you have a Basecamp account already, and you have a personal project that could use some Basecamp-style organization, hop on over and get yourself a Basecamp Personal project today for just $25.
