Why is Query Tracker FREE?

Query Tracker is free because it needs to be free.

Besides tracking the status of your query letter, Query Tracker also collects data about each query and provides statistics on a per agent basis. For these statistics to be as valuable as possible there must be a lot of data, which requires a lot of users, and free means more users.

Query Tracker is also free because there are countless scammers and crooks out there trying to rip off writers, and I did not want for a second to be confused with one of them. The best way to do that was to offer Query Tracker for free and put to rest permanently the question of money.

Of course, maintaining a website like Query Tracker is not free for me, that’s why I had to place advertisements on the site and I included a donations button.
