Hi, so I'm currently working on a startup. I didnt talk to my users yet (I'm a potential user myself so I have a bit of knowledge on what is wanted) mostly because Im afraid that if I post on e.g. reddit before launching and talk about my idea then someone will just copy it. Then it will be much harder for my startup to succeed because of competition. How do you deal with this?
So, I'm planning to build this website which provides a certain service to the users. I initially wanted to make it only add based but soon realized that this won't provide me with enough revenue. Now I'm thinking about charging each customer $ 5/month, but I'm afraid that if I do so, they won't be willing to pay. When I for example see a paid service I often choose not to use it not because of the fact that the price is too high but because of the fact that I have to pay (idk if this makes sense). How would you deal with that?
