Pay what you want.
It's a thing. It's been done a lot. Does anyone know a good list of who's down it and how they've done by it?
. And recently
World of Goo did very well by it
and publicized all their numbers (very cool).
Real-world restaurants seem to be running with it
bars as well
, even. :) Lotus (the band)
toured that way
Pay what you want online
is a music service that charges a minimum of fifty cents a track--that's not very "what you want".
Here's a one-off
font that starts at $15/yr min
(I think that misses the point?) And Eidos
is offering Championship Manager 2010
for just a penny (plus 2 pound fifty transaction fee--haven't they heard of micropayments???).
beat us to the "magazine" punch.
did it for an ebook (or more?).
GUD Magazine (that's me) is trying it as a sale...
It's a crowded market of want, but really,
how wrong can you go paying as little as a penny
The question's not entirely rhetorical, as we haven't had hordes knocking our doors down to get their penny PDFs. Exposure, sure... and we've not sold "nothing" from it in the day or two it's run so far--people almost seem embarrassed to not pay a "fair" amount, but we'd rather they paid less than that and got a copy (or a copy of all five, for that matter).
