  • How much should you be charging? Are you leaving money on the table, or are you scaring away potential customers? Pricing strategy can be one of the biggest challenges for product people, so we asked Founders Factory coach Fanni Fejes to share some of the lessons she teaches founders.

    (Since we originally ran this episode, Fanni has moved on to take the Head of Product role at Bequest.)

    In this episode, listen to learn about:

    Having a good pricing strategyApplying anchor pricingUsing metrics well

    Quote of the Episode

    If the pilot is free, make sure that it’s for a certain amount of time – and then you have the chance to renegotiate from there… In my personal experience, it’s easier to ask for more money than to ask for money at all.
