Quarterly plans as opposed to monthly?

I have reached the plans & pricing stage with twitMate and am considering quarterly plans. I know monthly & yearly plans are standard so I am uneasy about moving away from these, but...    twitMate, is somewhere between a service and a SaaS because, for each user, there is a significant amount of work at first but after that it basically runs itself.    I want to avoid an extra 'setup cost' as this will slow the build and I am aiming to keep things simple for users too.    The setup work...    I estimate about 5 hours work per account to setup. It's a Twitter management service and I will manually hand-write text, find images and select hashtags for Tweets as well as set up API access for the user's Twitter account. After that our tweet and follower engines will take care of the rest.    The cost of my time...    Price-wise, I'd like to cover the cost of my time in the first payment so something in the region of $200 / €175 / £150. However, this feels too expensive per month and the market confirms that there is some competition that costs about half this (although some that is more expensive too).    The plans...    So I am thinking of quarterly and annual pricing - off the top of my head something in the region $400 / €350 / £300 a quarter and $800 / €700 / £600 a year?    What do you think?
