Learning the ins and outs of being a product manager.

I learned about pricing the objects that you are selling.

I learned why creating a much cheaper product vs competitors may actually backfire on you even if the quality is similar. For instance, the customer may assume that it is a scam or of lower quality if your product is much cheaper. Additionally, you would likely make little money if your competition has thoroughly researched their prices. However, you would be able to steal some of your competition's customer base which could make you more money in the long term.

It's important to carefully choose the prices of your product to calculate whether you would be making a profit or not. Also, important to test the waters to see if there is a market for your product before going ahead and manufacturing or ordering a bunch of products when you could end up losing money.
