"The Sexy Value."
This is a situation where somebody is able to launch something, that is not only better, but cheaper. This perceived value what we call the sexy value.

To quote Sketchplanations -  "often this is only possible with a whole new technology or approach. It’s like when the first taxi apps started appearing. To me it was like hang on, this is way better — no trying to catch a taxi in the rain, simple, non-awkward, no swinging by the ATM payments — and also cheaper.

It is of course, not the only way to compete. If you make something better, people will pay what it’s worth to them. But if you can do it cheaper too you’re on to a winner."

I get a ton of emails and Twitter DMs of people asking me my opinion on their products each week, whether is be newsletter idea, a SaaS or anything, so I think this little diagram is very relevant. Strive for the sexy value! 😜
Now for this week's issue, I hope you enjoy😘
