    and heres some broad "theories" (well cuz im from business school.. so from a more business perspective)

    then i guess first
    whos your main target customer?
    you want like
    less people - higher price

    or

    more people - lower price

    ahhh i see
    so u guys never really did work for the public haha
    well still either way

    whats ur pricing in respect to the others in the market

    if its the same

    do you want it to be higher or lower or same?

    cuz different price has different customers.. different price is ABLE to perform different amounts of "wow"

    one wow... is making somethig look more htan its value
    another wow is making alot of money look like its been put into great use....
