When you sell an 11min clip 5 times for $11.99, your cut is $35.95. If you sell it for $14.99, you make $35.98 with only 4 sales.
My most expensive clip would need to sell 7 times at a rate of 1$ / min to outweigh selling only 1 time at the price I set it.
It's worth considering that when you set your prices.
I used to set my prices according to a certain system, but I have recently started switching to a more content-derived approach.
There is also strategy coming in. I used to set all 2min clips at $4.99. I now sometimes put one at $2.99, because that could reach the top spots on the category clip lists more easily. A higher spot can translate to more overall sales. It's a sort of risk investment, albeit small.
Of course the trade-off is that I make a little less money if the clip only sells a few times.
You can witness this at a larger scale when you see a studio climb to the top on the main page with a 2 hour clip priced at $29.99. It's a risk. If the clip doesn't sell often enough, pricing it at $120.99 (120min * 1$) would have been a better choice.
Clips that are really special and sell to a very small audience, can better be priced a little higher. Chances are they sell only to a certain group and lowering the price would not attract more customers.
More general clips with a lot of competition / similar clips on the market can be priced lower to achieve more sales and a higher turn-around overall.
The dynamic pricing I just recently started is very interesting to follow, because it also gives you a sense of control. When you sell a lower priced clip more often, you attribute that to your policy. When a special, higher priced clip sells often, you feel like you made the most of it.
I will closely look at the differences between dynamic pricing and static. Most studios use a form of static pricing. Minutes + x, minutes * x, the lowest possible, a very high price or even always the same price. Only few studios set the price according to the properties, characteristics and nature of the clip INDIVIDUALLY.
I am still a fan of instinctive pricing. I don't have to defend my pricing. If I feel that I put a lot of effort into a clip, I can set a high price if I want. Period. If I think a clip has a slight mistake that I, had I been the customer, would find disturbing, I set the price lower to counter for that.
Individual pricing asks more courage of you, both in taking risks and being bold, but it can be a good alternative to static methods. ... See MoreSee Less
