Do people think your product is worth $2.49?

Suppose you work hard on a product and give it a lot of features such as moving parts or colors or shaders or whatever. Then you submit it for sale and it’s listed at an introductory sale of $5.00 with an added discount that lowers the price to $2.49.

DRM (short for Digital Rights Management) is a way for content creators to protect their creations from people who would share it or illegally redistribute it. But is this a good idea for DAZ and other content creators?

Price Versus Quality 2: Does Lowering The Price Of An Item Increase Customer Support?

Basically, it’s the theory that as you raise your price, only “experts” will buy your product, the “simple” customers start to get weeded out, and the “simple” tech support calls stop coming in. This may sound elitist, but what clientèle do you want: the “dirt cheap” crowd or the “willing to pay a little more for a quality product” crowd… keeping in mind that the “want it cheap” crowd may actually cost you more in technical support or other areas.

Working for Exposure: A Vendor’s Perspective

In the past month, I’ve seen a few artists talk about how they’ve received requests for projects but the person doing the requesting doesn’t offer any compensation beyond “for the exposure” (meaning: do the job for free). Now, granted, there are plenty of times when exposure is good, such as donating artwork to a charitable cause or doing work for a professional organization that could help build your reputation.

Advice for Online Vendors II: Some Selling Truths Exposed

I’ve seen a number of articles in graphic artist magazines encouraging artists to sell their models. One of their main points is that, if you’re already making models for your own artwork, why not sell the models to other people? I’ve seen PDF tutorial e-books try to make the point that creating a best-selling product is almost as easy as just finding a niche and filling it. And I’ve also seen discussions in online forums where top-selling merchants talk about how easy it is to sell models and make hundreds (or thousands) of dollars every month. Well, if they’re doing it, so can you!

I don’t mean to scare anyone away from selling their digital products, but it seems that there’s still a lot missing from these discussions and e-books. I’ve been selling products for about 10 years now, so I thought it was past time to add my thoughts to this idea.
What exactly does it take to make a best-selling product and make thousands of dollars in sales every month?
