Do you offer a free trial?
You can register and try out the site as a free user (just choose any plan, sign-up with your email address, do not enter your credit card info and close out at the payment page). You will be able to see how the site is laid out and the different features available, including the ability to make a Project. You can conduct filtered searches and see the number of results your query would yield. However, you have to upgrade to view profiles and message factories.

If you're not quite ready for production, we suggest that you sign up for our Free Production 101 course! You can sign up for it here: http://makersrow.com/academy
