I am sure that at one time or another, many marketers have considered using a Pay What You Want (PWYW) pricing scheme to sell their products. On the face of it, it seems such an alluring idea, predicated on human decency and reciprocity. PWYW pricing is simple. Provide a good-quality product to customers, let them enjoy it, and then give them complete discretion to pay whatever they want for the product. No bills, no claims (although sometimes there may be a posted suggested price), pay if you want to (and as much as you want), don’t if you don’t. … [Read more...] about When Does Pay What You Want Pricing Work?
But it’s not just the fuel costs. Consider the delay imposed by maneuvering the ship in this kind of impulsive manner. Because of the dual directional shift, it may be several hours before the ship is even back in the same location it started in when it noticed the Twinkie. Plus, the kind of captain who jumps after Twinkies in this way is unlikely to stop at just one. He’ll probably go after all sorts of other stuff in the ocean whenever he sees the opportunity.

And yet one more. Pennycook et al. cite a delightful essay by French philosopher Dan Sperber, which I also recommend as additional reading. In "The guru effect," Sperber (2010), shows how the delivery of obscure, hard-to-understand, verbiage can further enhance a writer's reputation all the way to guru-dom if his (usually his) reputation as a deep think is already established. The audience is then likely to assume that that their own futile efforts at understanding signal the presence of deep meaning that he, the guru, comprehends, and which cannot be conveyed in simpler terms. Sperber is not so much concerned with the gibberish artists of the Deepak variety, but with certain 'continental' philosophers (les maîtres à penser) among whom he has lived. He gives several examples, and I like this one in partcular: "Consciousness is a being, the nature of which is to be conscious of nothingness of being." Guess who wrote this. And tell us, is this pseudo-profound bullshit, … [Read more...] about Not Even Bullshit
