Updating existing models or publishing new ones?

Discussion started by techykitty

Hi there, here is my new female character base mesh.

https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/character/woman/debbie-female-character-base-mesh

I plan to update this model from time to time (e.g. add different hairstyle, costume, makeup, etc.) and put up the price a bit by bit. Which is the reason why the price is very low. It's sort of an early-bird discount. However, I often see many sellers just publishing similar models as new models. Maybe, It's better to earn a reputation, but it doesn't click on me. It's getting harder and harder for customers to pick up a decent one from millions of models. I'm not sure if it's a good strategy. What do you think? Any suggestion would be much appreciated. Thanks for reading!

Hi, difficult to choose just because of such low prices. I highly recommend raising the price to at least $ 25. Don't be shy and afraid. Good luck!

Thanks for your comment! You're probably right. I thought $15 was appropriate, but I got price offers from several customers for another model and they said $7 was affordable (they haven't purchased though) so that maybe $7 was right. I will reconsider it following your advice. Thank you :)

You shouldn't listen to such clients if you really want to be successful. $ 7 unavailable low price for model with rig and textures.

Indeed. I spent a lot of time making this model. Now, I fixed the price at $15 which was the original one for another base mesh model several customers purchased. I don't want to be an undercutter, but this category seems highly competitive so that $25 sounds a little bit high for this base mesh model. Anyway, thank you for your suggestion, I'll keep it in mind. I really appreciate it.

Sellers with very low prices on items cause hates others sellers, suspicion among buyers and the temptation for thieves. You won't be told about it directly, but it's true. Consider this and value your work, focusing only on professionals in the industry.

I was probably naive. It's been 5 months since I started selling my models on the marketplaces like CGT. I thought some of the buyers were hobbyists, but you're right most of them are proffessionals. I don't want to cause anything that you mentioned. Let me think about the price again, please. Thanks again for enlightening me. I truly appreciate it.
