    If you've ever created your own digital products how do you figure how much it's worth? How do you judge the value of your work you've just put together?

    I personally consider my digital products top notch when it comes to the knowledge and method behind them but it's not up to me it's up to the buyers.

    So I would like to know what you guys look for when you buy products online.

    If we can all share what we feel is quality in terms of price ranges that'll be awsome!
    For ex: What do you expect from a product selling for $100, $80, $50, $20, $10, $5??

    I really want to push this small ebook about how to make money with adult affiliates with my method that literally would rack anyone $200 plus a day if done right. But stamping it with a huge price seems extreme even tho it's a method that would actually make you money than some bullcrap found on CB for $79.99.

    How can I actually sell a real product with honestly and good intentions and profit than to become scammers like most CB gurus selling useless info? But like i said. this is my opinion how i rate the "KNOWLEDGE" in my ebook. My price is $12 and im killing myself over it. I set it that way because its small compare to a more pretty and known lots of pages ebooks out there but the info is REAL VALUE i believe.

    In the world we live in. Do you think i should just keep my knowledge to myself instead of selling it off to people who won't appreciate it? Or should we all continue scraping and duplicating content to put books together and sell them?

    What do you have to do to convince someone that your method is actually YOUR METHOD and nobody else's? For them to actually pay $500 for a 10 page ebook that can make them $500 back in 1 week? is that possible? or are humans too gullible when it comes to every CB garbage?

    it's my opinion, that most people these days have caught on to that, and don;t want anything to do with e-book's because, till this day none of the people selling those books with info, have proven anyone otherwise? am i saying this right?

    uh well, it's just really hard to sell, whether what you are selling works or not.

    and i don't know if this is a good idea or if it will work but what i would do is like

    sell 1 piece of information that anyone can do and make a really really quick....$10-$20 for like $1-$5 then...if they want more lol sell them the whole thing for $12-$200

    :suspicious: like that they uh......nvm i'm dumb haha i hope it works out for u though.

    and i dont know if i answered your question, but just think of your product as bait, think of the world's population as an ocean full of hungry fishes =)

    I see it as a real problem. Putting CB eBook on my site is somewhat tricky because if it's shit, the buyer comes to me saying I'm shit even if I have nothing to do with it. Of course, then, I can change my product but still, it's difficult to really know...
    I have top notch digital product and I have crap. I have similar selling because people do not know which is good and which is bad...

    split test a bunch of price points and see which one pulls in the most money in the shortest amount of time. it's worth whatever people are willing to pay for it :)

    I usually base my price on my competitors price and then undercut them. Works very good for me.

    People will see some added value if you give them something besides the ebook (not other ebooks) - can you give:
    1. Pre-made formatted excel worksheets
    2. Video tutorials
    3. A membership club with some ongoing benefit
    4. A software or script which compliments your ebook
    5. Any sort of 1-on-1 training or evaluation
    6. Some part of what you are selling 'pre-made'

    Any of these things will greatly increase the value.

    Me personally, I wouldn't pay more than $30 for straight electronic information, more than that and I expect something more concrete.

    The most value / highest prices would be for access to software / scripts which do something related to what you are talking about.
    Second would be a membership with ongoing hints / help or the 1-on-1 consultation (but that's time consuming).

    I also agree with vsyou - piece out little bits of info and charge lower amounts, if it's really good, they'll come back for more.

    - well, a sucker is born every minute, BUT... I think you will have a hard time selling that, most people have gotten much more skeptical (and with good reason).

    Offer enough free advice to show your visitors that you really know what you are talking about, then offer an "extra-special ebook" for those that do well with your free-advice and want to "take it to the next level" Make them register/opt-in to get some special free tips, then you can offer your ebook as a special offer to your list. (and you can price it a little higher since these are people who are already with you)

    The ebook itself isn't going to have a high value without something to go with it, because no one can tell if it's crap or not before they buy it.

    Yes, you should first provide people with free information and if they like it they will buy products from you. Put yourself in buyer's shoes. If he believes you are legit and providing really valuable info then he will buy your product whatever the price tag is(off course if it's affordable for him). So, you can create a short report or even provide the people with first chapters or something like that from your ebook.
    Like said above, if you provide buyer's with bonus which also should be useful, there's a good chance they'll will buy your product.
    Best of luck!!!!

    seriously, you can only charge what people are willing to pay (what your traffic is willing to pay) and that is based on the customers perception of the value of your product. the optimal price point is determined by testing different price points and offers. you have to test all that stuff. sometimes high price sells more, sometimes the reverse is true. gotta test it.
