Yes, you read that right.
And that includes EVERYTHING - all modules, UNLIMITED MASS EMAILS AND TEXTS, training, updates and more
If you look at the competition's website you will see that they charge $365 a year for any size school. That seems like a good deal EXCEPT that they also charge $75 an hour for training and 10 cents for each email or text message sent. Training and unlimited messages are included with your Aria subscription at no extra charge.
For example, let's say you have a band program with 95 students, staff and parents. With that size, you would use a Aria "Medium" subscription. Imagine you are going to send out the equivalent of one message a week to all your people (in practice, you will probably send out A LOT more messages than that). Given that, here's how your costs look now:
|Item||Aria "Medium" subscription||The Competition|
(1 message to 95 people each week for 36 weeks - 3,420 messages)
|$0 (unlimited messaging included with your subscription)||$342 (they charge you 10 cents per message!)|
|Training for you and your staff||$0 (unlimited training included with your subscription)||$75 per hour|
|Total||Still just $500 per year||$782 per year (and much more if you send out more than one email or mass text a week)|
And that is just sending one message out a week. In real-life, you're going to want to send out many more messages than that. One of the strengths of Aria is that you can send out emails/texts instantly as needed, without having to worry about what it is going to cost you. Last minute schedule change - send out a text. Reminder for the rehearsal schedule - send out an email. Section rehearsal - send out a text.
Efdfective and rapid communication is critical and that's why we offer you unlimited messaging at no extra charge.
You don't need to enter any payment details to activate a free trial. If you like Aria, you can enter your payment details at any point during the 90-day trial. If not, simply stop using it and we'll delete your data once the trial has ended.
No. Aria is a pay-as-you-go subscription service. There are no long term contracts or commitments on your part. You simply pay once a year (or you have the option of making a monthly payment). If you cancel, we will pro-rate your subscription and refund you the difference.
If you upgrade from one plan to another you are not eligible for another 90-day free trial. The 90-day free trial only applies for when you sign up for the first time. You can upgrade or downgrade your plan at any time.
No. The prices you see above are all inclusive. For example, the "Small" plan is $200 a year for up to 50 performers/students. That means you pay $200 a year total no matter how many performers/students you have as long as it's less than 50 total. AND - you can add an unlimited number of administrators, staff, alumni, volunteers, parents and donors. We only charge for the total performers/students you have entered in Aria for the current year.
