One of the first pairs of kicks I bought to flip was the Nike Air Max Penny 1 “Pinstripe”. I got a great deal on the last pair from a Foot Locker outlet. They were considered retro silhouettes from Nike so I thought for sure I could make at least $50 on a resale. After about a couple of weeks, I ended up selling them for the price I paid.
No buyers bit on my marked up online offers. That shouldn’t have been surprising to me since I purchased them from an outlet store. And you know if it’s from an outlet, then no one wanted them.
Ask yourself this: Is there a strong market for the product or service you are offering? If yes then YOU can determine the value. When applying for a new position, do you have skills that are in high demand? Don’t be afraid to name your price when negotiating a salary. Value is synonymous with what the market needs, and if there happens to be a shortage of that ‘need’.
