Ryan Sit of PicClick is upset with me

Posted on Jun 30, 2010 - 2:25 PM PST

I got this email from Ryan of PicClick, whose Mixergy sponsorship ended today:

Hello Andrew,

I’m really loving doing the sponsorship with you! I love how you give a interesting spin each version and it is great for PicClick and interesting to the viewers.

Looks like the 10 is up or almost up. Anyway can I get another 10? This isn’t fair, I think I should be paying at least $100 per episode, $1000? Would really appreciate it.

The Sean Ellis interview was very interesting!

Thank you,
Ryan Sit

In case you missed it, Ryan is trying to get me to charge him more money.

He’s been laughing at me for charging so little for a long time. That PicClick must be more profitable than I thought for him to want to spend more money. Anyone know is revenues and/or profits? Email me and I’ll keep it private. He won’t do a Mixergy interview about his numbers yet.

I’m keeping my prices where they are. I’m happy with my rates. I’m booked for months, so I can focus on interviewing. That’s find with me for now. (If you want to know what he’s paying, you can ask him. I’m not sure I should reveal it, but if he wants to, it’s cool.)

    He must be seeing a good ROI. Even I clicked over to check him out and found myself using PicClick for quite some time!

    One thing I've learned from your interviews is that you should charge enough that you get just a little push back but not a lot. That's how you know you're right at the peak of the profit curve. Is that where you're at? If not, you're likely selling yourself short.

    I think that's where I am.

    I'm happy that he says he got massive value from the spots. That in itself
    is good promotion for me because he's talking about it.

    All I can say is Andrew is really doing an incredibly altruistic service to everyone. As a fellow entrepreneur it's killing me to see how little he charges. That Andrew Warner must have a lot more money than I thought for him to not want me to spend more money.

    He's smart to go after revenue early.

    I got hooked on his site too. It just works.

    I never got Etsy until I saw it on PicClick. When I get back to the US, I'm
    going to shop there more often.

    Been booked for months, but I'd love to have you on. I sent you a private
    email about this comment.
