I suggest you ...

Improve your Free/Trial/Entry level offers

Azure is prohibitively expensive for small businesses and new/poor developers.

£150 for 30 days is not long enough to get up and running and to make a viable website/app to cover the costs.

-Allow users to use the free credits over 12 or 6 or even 3 months.
-Or return to your previous offer with free monthly credits for a year.
-Or offer SSL on the shared plan. (sites without SSL are not an option)

£50-£60/pm for a basic website with custom domain and SSL is ridiculous.

I feel my only option is to abandon Azure and look at something like Google's GCP (who are offering $300 for a year), which means I have wasted many years learning the Microsoft and Azure stack.

I really hope you can review your current offers and make Azure a better choice.
