Post your models and get other users opinions on your price / quality relation
After reading a long discussion about pricing and underpricing of 3d models, I was thinking that it would be helpful to have a thread where anyone could post a link (on cgtrader) to 3d models they are selling and get the opinions of other users on the price / quality relation of their model. I'm hoping here especially (but not only) on opinions of experienced sellers, who might also be interested in others choosing a price that is not undercut;)
The Idea is NOT to advertise or showcase any model and it's not about getting feedbacks to improve your model or presentation, it's just about finding the right price. I hope it's ok to start a thread like this, otherwise the moderators might please delete it:)
Would you prefer a thread ( like this one), or do you think having a separate board (named, e.g. Model pricing) would be more convenient? :)
Although, having a board I'd rather suggest having both Feedback and Pricing in it. :)
Probably the best way to find out is to put up a price and look at the sales statistics, then after a while add some to the price and see if sales drops. Then also go in other direction and lower the price a bit and see if sales go up.
You would want to find that sweet spot where price is just right for your offering and delivers most sales. For any given item there is a certain amount of buyers, you would not want to divert some of them by setting price to high, on other end you do not want to lose earnings setting price to low and don't get more sales out of it.
That would be hard to get with conversations, the best way would be to try it out in the field and take samples and get to know what is your amount of unique buyers and how they react to your offerings.
Allot of websites are beginning to use AI algorithms to adjust prices adaptively over time to get to this sweet spot, it will probably not take too long before CGtrader will also experiment with that sort of implementations (if not already?).
Well then I make the start with my first model. I mainly trying to think about how many hours I invested, how many times I hope to sell it near future (let's say two years), and I also tried to not be too far away from existing similar models.
Link to the model: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/interior/kitchen/photorealistic-modern-kitchen-furniture
Current price: $ 45.00
What's your opinion on that price, compared to the model you'd get?
Hello. Your model looks detailed and clean. I think the price match the quality.
@gianni333, i don't know how big difference that makes, but i have no doubts, that by including native format you would increase your chances to sell. Of course that largely depends on what your native format is. Max scene would draw a lot more attention than blend file.
I did an experiment a year ago, i've put one of my most popular free models in as many formats as i could and after some time i calculated how many times each format was downloaded. Needless to say that native formats was much more populare than interchangable ones. Oddly enough FBX wasn't much popular even compared against interchangable formats. You can see results of that experiment here: https://www.cgtrader.com/forum/topics/most-popular-file-formats
Here's another model I just made, I set the price a bit higher than other similar models, because I thought those where kinda underpriced. Other thoughts on that?
