    Hello,

    I am just wondering, is it me or are all bots today freaking expensive?
    Like for instance.. followliker for 49$ for 1 account and 99 to get the full?

    Another one demanded 199$ yearly!

    What are your thoughts on this?.. I personally think this is madness..

    Uhm.. If i did a software that contained all those features and sold it for say, 19$ for a lifetime license for as many accs as you want
    and containg all the features out there, would there be interest?

    $100 for a bot seems pretty reasonable to me.

    Plus you have to remember this crucial fact. After the person pays for the bot thats it. You get no more money from that person ever again BUT you still have to maintain the software.

    Why charge $19 when people are willing to pay $99? In business you always charge what someone is willing to pay.

    Bot developing might be easy but its also time consuming. You have to test each and every function extensively. You dont want to sell a bot that throws errors. You also have to make sure it works fine on all OS that it supports. And also like ASAP1 said you sell the product once and then supply with updates for lifetime. Also you have to support a team of developers/support and you have to pay taxes/vat etc.

    As a ubot developer I can tell you that coding is the easiest part. Its the advertising, support and bugfixing thats the hard part.

    Hope you understand :)

    let's think this way
    after a couple of months or even a year you finally make your bot working will you sell it for 10 or 20$ for one time payment and maintain the software for your entire life? if yes i'll buy your bot once it finish

    It is pretty solid actualy. I have tested it for months. Also, there is not alot to maintain since its pretty straightforward.

    I believe my price would be good & competetive since many people dont have the money to aquire these big softwares out there.

    What matter is do you know how to make money with that bot or not.

    Twitter Money Bot has 3 different packages for people's budgets. And why sell it for just a very cheap price like $19 when you always have to update it and if twitter updates itself you have to fix the software for free again.

    "Expensive" is a relative thing.

    I bought some SEO software years ago that have paid for themselves many times over. If you use a U$ 99 bot to sell 100k U$, then it's cheap. If you buy it and never master it or make anything with it, it's U$ 99 in the garbage.

    It's only expensive if you have a non-working method to monetize the traffic.

    Others can recoup that investment within a day if done right. ;)
