This is an old ad for Hasselblad cameras that's performing what's known as "Price Justification."

Price justification is how you explain your product costing 10X more than a competitor.

Here’s some examples of Price Justification for a camera:
β€’ β€œThis is what Steve Spielberg uses to film”
β€’ β€œHasselblad cameras were used on the moon”
β€’ β€œThe lenses take 3 months each to make”


These are many "features" that allow businesses to charge more money for a product, such as:

  • Rarity: Only a few will be made, like small batch whiskey.
  • Organic: It costs more money to produce and is better for you.
  • Exclusivity: If an old product is discontinued. Like classic cars.
  • Handmade: Harder and longer to make things by hand.
  • Fame: If the person/thing is famous and well known.
  • Art: If something is β€œart” there’s technically no price ceiling for it.
  • Punctuality: It's always delivers on time.
  • Speed: If your product is faster than others.
  • Higher Quality: Like Ikea vs West Elm.
  • More Features: If your product can do more things that are useful.
  • Less Features: Simplifying a product can add value. Like Apple.
  • Trust: If your product/company are more trustworthy than others.
  • Talent: Some services just have better people.
  • Brand Recognition: If your product has cache. Like Gucci.
  • History: If there is some historical value to the product.
  • Just Charging More: Sometimes you can simply just charge more to appear luxurious.
  • Convenience: Being in right place, right time. Like airport stores.
  • Monopoly: If you’re the only provider, you can keep prices high.

You can also combine these qualities together to create a β€œPremium” product that's higher priced than competitors.

Thought:

One reason people get so-called "Writer's Block" is they are trying to write a SINGLE perfect post.

For example when people try to craft a cold email, they get scared it won't work.

This is why we always encourage people to write 3 drafts:
β€’ Long
β€’ Medium
β€’ Short

1.) Start by writing long.
​2.) Then whittle it down to medium.
​3.) Then whittle it down to short.
​4.) Send 10 of each.
​5.) Then pick the winner.

​

Uplifting:

My friend Nick Gray does parties all the time. He always tries to invite ppl who don’t all know each other.

  • Does roughly 3 ice breakers per party
  • Makes everyone wear name tags

It almost seems funny at first, but is 10X easier to meet people you don’t know and have conversations!

Pro-Tip: Allow OTHER PEOPLE to throw parties at your place, you do very little of the work, and get major cred πŸ˜›

Picture:

I saw this bag in the wild. When someone was designing this bag, they HAD to know it looks like a blob fish right?? πŸ˜‚

The term for this phenomena of "something that looks like a face" is called Pareidolia.

Here's other random things that look like funny faces πŸ˜‚

​

Interesting:

YouTube video traffic is like SEO traffic: Make it once and it chugs along steadily.

In last 30 days this Codie Sanchez interview we recorded months ago brought in:
β€’ 5,553 views
β€’ 1,300 hours of watch time
β€’ 75 subscribers

Even after not posting on YouTube for 2 months the platform keeps promoting and building an audience.

It's a stark contrast to other social channels which drop off a cliff if you don't frequently post.
