Value

Last Update November 22, 2013

C.I.G. is partly supported by its readers. If you’re buying our connections, we can make a partnership commission …

Don’t you hate it when the ATMs charge you for money? He’s really smirking, man. Really raises this arterial tension, man …

The $2 card in the other bank than yours, it’s pain. Pay $4 for a concert to put my mitts on one of your Jackson’s, still a great injustice …

But it is still a change in the grandiose scale of things. You knew there was a place where you’d have a $10 pony to use an ATM? What kind of place would someone take someone to commit such sacrifice?

But more about that later. Now I want to talk to you about the value of … value …

Does that sound complicated? Well, here’s the idea in the simplest form, in case you’re one of those arrogant types that can’t spare you to read my whole prose:

The cost of the service product must be determined by the value it provides to the customer, NOT the amount of effort that will be spent on the customer,

The reason I dedicated the entire post to this simple idea is that too many talented people are recent Greeks, entrepreneurs, freelancers, you name it-

When you’re just starting, you don’t have much experience in being paid for the work you do. That’s not the experience with the typical feelings.

So do yourself a favor: read this post and bring it to your heart. This could make a huge difference in your future income potential …

It is time to illustrate my point of view. To do this, I need to tell you a story with a 17-year-old me, a very attractive lady business, a lot of fiberglass insulation, a dangerous balance, and about 40 loud dogs …

I graduated in May 2009. In a few months before, I decided I was working on something to do with food and/or retail, so I got a job training students at the local community college …

After graduation, I still did it, but it really doesn’t make a lot of money. So I went looking for other work for the summer. The only problem was that, as a child of my class, I was still under 18 years of age.Guess what?

In the permanent department of employment, I was.

But it was three months. It was a problem because …

So I needed a solution. Fortunately, I played with HTML and learned to build sites pretty long-so I decided to try my hand on freelance …

I put out flyers on public billboards, ordered a bunch of crappy, free business cards (avoiding ih-.

Most of them were typical web design projects, but one of them was … less than typical …

Shortly before my 18th birthday, I got a call from a local dog owner. It was an attractive woman-the business owner I mentioned earlier. This is how our conversation went:

” Hey, Thomas, I hear you’re making web design. I have a project with which I wonder if I can help you; most of all, I need my building to be linked to webcams, which will have direct video links to my dogs on my website so that my clients can check their dogs whenever they want. “.

-Of course! It’s not exactly what I’ve done before-or I don’t even know how to do it, so if you’re ready for it, I’ll do everything I can to figure it out … “

”… and since I’ve never done this before, I’ll just charge you $50.“I hung up on the phone and I went online to see what I’m going through. Soon I found a program called Utream, which will allow you to broadcast webcam on the Internet ..

I thought it was all I needed, so I went to work. I thought it would only take a couple of hours to do whatever I could to make me cool at $25. It’s a lot better than my friends at the grocery store.

Unfortunately, there were cases.

Now Eustrom really worked as advertised. Lock the webcam, link your ribbon to the UStream and exit …

However, this was the only part of the project that originally worked. In other areas, issues have begun to trickdown:

  • She had two places, so I had to do the assignment twice. Each location has its own problems ..
  • Each place had two dog zones, and I had to have a streaming camera in both. Unfortunately, her old computers had a very long time on two instances of UStream …
  • One place demanded that I actually rewire the holes in the ceilings, then the USB threads for the web-kam in the attic of the building. I also had to go through the attic several times, balancing on the ceiling and avoiding isolation. If I’d accidentally got off the board, I’d put a foot hole in the ceiling below …
  • In one place was a computer without operating system. Without an extra copy of Windows, lust around, I decided to try Ubuntu Linux. Success! Oh, wait, there were no webcams for Linux. Scratching this …
  • USB cables in the attic were too short, so I had to buy the USB cable expander …
  • After we gave up the idea of Linux, we had to just go buy a new computer to replace it. Since it was better than her old laptop, I also transferred all of her business programs to this new computer …
  • Whenever a computer falls asleep, the feed will shut down-so I had to figure out how to keep computers as long as possible, and write documentation so that employees could get the feeds again without my help when they turned off …
  • During the whole process, I was accompanied by about 40 dogs-all of the beautiful chorus for my auditory pleasure …
  • In addition to everything, I still had to write code to embed all four webcams on their site ..

    Don’t get me wrong, I found this whole project to be a pretty funny experience. I’m glad I did this …

    However, the project area really came to me, and in the end I spent about 40 hours on the project before I got everything that works perfectly …

    If you don’t feel the way you think you’re mathematician … it’s translated.

    I based my price on work from my point of view.

    Fortunately for me, the day-care host also realized that I sold myself very quickly. So instead of $50, she paid me $300.

    Good Samaritan is really …

    When you’re just starting as a freelancer or a businessman, you’re probably making the same mistake. You can even do this when you discuss your salary for your first work from college (if you have such a privilege) …

    However, you can avoid a big mistake like me if you just remember this concept. The price someone pays for something should reflect.

    I was talking to my friend Andrew the other day when he was hanging out in Des Moines. Andrew runs a company that offers training and support services to Apple products for individuals and legal entities.

    Business Andrew is just a shop, but he’s good at it because he offers a service that is.

    Andrew told me a story about one of his clients who called him this weekend for a printer problem. For five minutes, Andrew fixed the comfort of his own house (it was a software problem)

    However, the Employer insisted that he would be charged for the entire hour. Why? The client told Endu the same thing I’m trying to tell you-it needs to be charged on the basis.

    Because he quickly got the printer, the customer explained, now he can go back to business and make money. It was valuable enough to pay for the full hour of support …

    This is the same concept that some strip clubs use, as I mentioned at the beginning of this post …

    Now I don’t spend a lot of time in strip clubs (in a country where prostitution is illegal, there’s something more meaningless?), but I was told that some of them would look at the exorcism ATMs, sometimes to $10 …

    It seems crazy-but hey, when the most elemental and primal biological call tells him that he needs to put green paper notes in very specific locations, he will probably not ignore them. Even if he loses $10 of that money in a very non-sexual ATM …
