KoboldTouch now available for less!

koboldtouch_softwareboxopentop_250x250While I did the year’s end reports on practically everything, I also ran the numbers on KoboldTouch.

Now that it’s been available for just over two months, I decided to make the $39.95 plan available for everyone which was previously only available to Learn Cocos2D 2 book owners. This plan replaces the $44.95 plan.

The “3-months only” plan is now also down from $44.95 to $39.95.

Check out KoboldTouch here.

Please take the KoboldTouch survey. I highly appreciate your feedback, thank you!

With actual sales figures of the past two months I could see a clear pattern:

Only one person signed up for the regular $44.95 plan. Therefore it did not make sense to continue offering the $44.95 plan.

Three quarters of all members signed up for the $39.95 plan for book owners. I’m interested to see if signup rate increases after opening the $39.95 plan to everyone.

I don’t think that the $45 price point was the issue here. I believe it was the cheaper plan being only available for book owners, while everyone else would have had to pay $20 more per year. This inequality may have deterred potential customers. Perhaps a purely psychological thing?

On thursday (UPDATE: re-scheduled for February to gather more stats and run a survey) I’ll publish a blog post with more numbers (members, affiliates, refunds, revenue, …) on KoboldTouch, and what the goals are for this year. I’ll say this much: it’s on its way to become a self-sustainable business within months. Stay tuned!

I very much enjoy the learning process, the pushing of boundaries (mine and yours and that of technology), having the freedom to pursue whatever is on my mind, to boldly program what no one has programmed before, and to write about what I've learned. Help me help you by browsing the products in the Learn Cocos2D Store.
