Episode 36: Pricing Hangups — First Product Series Part 2 (FS036)

Pricing is tough. No doubt. But we’ve got experience with it and in this episode give you the essential pieces of advice to make your thing and price it right.

This is part two of a four part series on making your first product… to sell… to people who aren’t in your family.

(If you haven’t heard the first part of this series yet, do so here).

Each episode in this series features interviews with successful entrepreneurs, followed by our thoughts (the 3 C’s of Fizzle).

Here’s the 4 entrepreneurs you’ll hear from today:

Chris Johnson — Founder of SimpliFilm.com and Flowtility. Also, the best salesman I know; and I mean that in the best possible way.

Paul Jarvis — Writer of books, designer of websites, blogger of blog posts at PJRVS.com.

Jason Glaspey — Founder of Paleo Plan, a weekly meal planner for folks who want to eat paleo.

Jenny Blake — Founder of Life After College and author of the book by the same name.
