A Pricing Experiment

| Comments

Today I read about determining pricing by surveying your customers, and it just so happens that I have a new product ready for pricing, so I thought I’d try it out.

I am ready to release the OAuth Rails Kit, which gives you a good example of how to integrate Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn into your Rails app. If you’re like me, you’ve probably been asked to pull data in from LinkedIn, or push out updates to a user’s Facebook stream. This Kit shows you step by step exactly how to that. The only thing I need now to start selling the Kit is a price. :)

That’s where you come in. After you check out the product page, head over to this one-page, seven-question survey that seeks your input on what I should charge for the OAuth Kit. In exchange for your time, you’ll get a 25%-off coupon code that you can use towards a purchase of the OAuth Kit.

Thanks for your help – I’m looking forward to seeing how this turns out!


The Kit has now been priced and launched. Please see the results of the pricing experiment, or go ahead and buy the Kit to easily integrate Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn APIs in your Rails app. :)
