Hi. This is just an opinion. The pricing you set depends on the kind of customers you want. I have a friend whose father used to say "SELL TO MASSES AND LIVE WITH THE CLASSES". If you sell it at a cheap price, you?ll have more customers, but it depends on the production cost. Your idea is great, but most customers are afraid about technology and won?t like putting their hands on their website. Don?t forget the law of the offer and demand. Are you really the only one in the market? How many are there and, is your product better than other products?... Also, be sure to know exactly where to announce and who to partner with.
Consider all this kind of stuff, and, after you set the pricing, contact me (I won?t have more than 2 or 3 customers for your product, but I?ll have something).
I hope this helps, and if not feel free to contact me.
One last recommendation: We, buyers, want to buy products with a large list of features. Do not limit your product to an UPDATER, look for all the great features it has cause you never know what?s the exact feature your customer is looking for.
First, I am addressing this question to a WEB DESIGN forum most of whose members have already mastered HTML, FTP operations, and all the other complexities of website creation so you are NOT potential customers of my company's ASP based website creation service (which is NOT listed in this post)aimed at eliminating all that complexity for non-programmers. My question is: Do you have customers asking for pages on their sites that that "they" can change without programming knowledge? My reason is to see if portions of our suite of tools might be marketed to developrs like you who could continue to create conventional custom sites and just link to our service for the few pages the customer needed an easy to use content management system for. If so, what would an acceptable price be per page for us to provide that service (password accessible by your customer via Internet Explorer using our ASP based software to make changes and republish those pages which would be hosted on our servers -not your site- which would still be hosted wherever it is now) Since this is probably not of general interest feel free to reply directly to me: firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for your input.
