Raised prices by 5x

Today I launched new pricing plans at a higher price point than before. (existing customers stay at their original price point).

I think as indie hackers we have a tendency to under-price our products. Part of this is a natural fear of asking for more money for something we've created. Another part is that we are following the crowd of other indie hackers charging < $10 a month for a SaaS product.

Well, I've had enough of that! ;)

Today I'm realigning my roadmap. My lowest pricing tier is now $49 per month with a mid tier at $99 per month. This automatically puts you in a different headspace when thinking about the product roadmap. I should be able to deliver $99 worth of value every month to the right customer - maybe I need to tweak the feature set and maybe I need to work at finding the right customer segment, but I feel it will be more productive than scrabbling around for $9 subscriptions from other indie hackers.

Nothing against indie hackers (I am one after all!) but we shouldn't be pricing our products for the indie market, IMO. It's unsustainable.
