Product Pricing: Are You Killing The Golden Goose? - Blog 1 - Earn With Joomla Blog Series from Techjoomla

A singular story in the Aesop’s Fable series has always captured my imagination, right from my childhood days.

The story goes like -- a peasant had an enchanted goose with a magical ability to lay a single Golden Egg each day. One day the ignorant peasant overcome by greed, ripped open the belly of his goose to get hold of all the eggs at once in a single day. He did not gain anything but lost everything -- his goose was gone and so was the daily production of a golden egg.

Peasant with his Goose

In that vein I would like to ask you , "Are you KILLING THE GOLDEN GOOSE When Pricing your Products ?” You have to be very conscious when it comes to decide the pricing of your own, beloved, incredible and perfect product developed after a lot of hardship. It costs a million to you, but nil to customers until it's worth them.

Still on Joomla 1.5 or Joomla 1.7 ? Its time to upgrade !

The Joomla 1.5X series was one of my most favorite releases. It was one of the most advanced CMS systems when it was released, had an awesome MVC architecture that took development to a new level in Joomla & it was rock stable. After the Mambo days, the Joomla 1.X series did a great job in maintaining the code but it was 1.5 that was the game c...

JomSocial 1.8 is here. What does this mean for you & me

The release of the latest version of JomSocial,V.1.8 codenamed "Wazi" (Swahili for clear, openness and clarity), opens up a whole new vista of possibilities for the average JomSocial based Social Network. I bet you have already have heard about what features have been packed into this new release.There's the amazing new Social Events Management system, then a bettered activity stream & much enhanced media handling, Ability to edit walls to name a few features. What we shall also be looking at is how this affects you & how it affects our extensions.

From my perspective , the announcement of JomSocial going GPL with this release holds much more weight than all its new features combined. On one front it proves that quality commercially supported extensions can be built & sustained while being licensed under GPL. Secondly, the best part of this is that you can now install JomSocial on any number of sites, though you may only request support for one domain. So now you can get all those cash strapped projects up & running !
