Use Pricing Table to Define & Describe Your Product

While a Product Management Canvas is an internal-facing tool to describe or imagine your product, Pricing table is an excellent external-facing tool to describe or imagine your product. Let us explore why it so and along the way list some key things to talk about in a pricing table.

A Way to Describe Your Product

What if you had to make a single page product note or a pitch for your product? As an ideator and/or as a product manager, what all would you include in the product note to describe your product? What describes a product crisply?

Consider these:

  1. Key features that make your product useful and valuable
  2. Additional features that allow someone to use your product under some special circumstances and at scale
  3. How much your product cost based on usage, audience or scale
  4. All this presented in a pictorial/graphical manner
  5. Easy way to buy the product

Isn’t that what a Pricing Table format (as made popular by WordPress and other template-based website builders), really is?
