Must… Click… Upgrade

Jon Yongfook:

Just paid $75 (per month) to remove the “Upgrade Now” button from Slack. Never underestimate how much a B2B customer armed with a corporate card will pay to solve a minor inconvenience.

It me. And I dislike it about myself but it’s true.

Just a dumb little upgrade banner in an app, even if it does literally nothing by upgrading, and I simply must remove it.

The one that is poking me right now is this one:

Docker Desktop app showing the dashboard. Blue header reads "Docker Desktop" but also a highlighted button reading "Upgrade Plan"

I just need absolutely nothing that any of the Pro plans provide, and I have no proof the upsells will stop if I choose a Pro plan, but the temptation is so high.
