How is Beam so much more affordable than Plausible, Fathom, Simple and all the other alternatives?

It’s hard to answer this question because we obviously don’t know what goes into the production costs for other providers. We looked at our costs and tried to figure out the lowest amount we could charge that would cover our costs and give us a little bit. So maybe it’s just that our profit margins are just lower.
