  • Posted to Airbnb's NYC Marathon email has an interesting take on their logo., in reply to Alyssa Pelletier , Oct 22, 2014

    No. I think it is a shit logo that they tried to justify. I think they put too much effort into the process and made themselves blind to the reality of what they created.

    I really want to agree with you, but I just can't. They opened themselves up to criticism by drawing so much attention to their new logo and process.

    Beautiful image at the top and the rest is just kinda meh. Some of the layout is really poorly done.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to keep on about your headline, I certainly see the value in sensationalism. I did read most of your replies, but I do feel there is still a bit left up for discussion.

    I think this type of pricing is important because it allows you to selectively choose and change the services you use to get the most from them. If you had to pay for them at a higher cost upfront, you would be stuck because you already used that portion of your budget. It also fosters competition, because price is often an easy opening for newer products to prove themselves and if you can stop paying for one and easily switch, you don't have to hesitate to try something new.

    If you have a budget then you know as well as we do that your post is just a sensationalist headline for your complaining that you think things are too expensive. Also, I did not say there was correlation between signup and your business model. I said that if you have essential expenses that you cannot afford based on your income, then it is not viable.

    I would also like to add that I do see your point here, but I think it is not conveyed as well as it could be. I think the real issue is that a lot of services focus on doing niche things well so you end up paying for a lot of services.

    Your logic is flawed. You need a budget. You need to separate your personal and business expenses. Personal budget is simple, set your monthly $ and decide what is most important. For business, build that into your price. There will always be business costs. If you cannot afford the cost of running your business based on what you can charge, you business not viable.
