Because they're saving their money to buy toilet paper online, maybe?

hi all

Yes, this is a question i am wondering about right at the moment.

For fear of advertising i thought i shouldn't reply... but it topical, so i hope its ok! Sorry if i shouldn't have posted... :(

My website is a social network. My market is backpackers, low price travelers, and homeowners. Its explained like this:-

"Volunteer Abroad With Helping Hands Swap Work For Spare Accommodation.
Finish work in home. Travelers do chores, odd-jobs, trades, and/or services.
Can you volunteer? Are you a homeowner? Social network."

And i am right now trying to work out the commission plans i offer to affiliate program members.

Categorize it like this:

Group 1: Offer higher commissions that may appear appealing. But this will push the price of the social network memberships up.
Group 2: Offer lower but fair commissions, currently set at up to 25% over 7 tiers. This will keep the social network membership prices lower.

I really lost to what i should do. Can i ask, if you where paying for the service, then would you what Group would you prefer to slot yourself into? Would you prefer Group 1 or Group 2?

I hope its ok to do this... if you want to see the product then visit http://bedexchange.co/

Let me know your thoughts.

thanks
steven

I would suggest testing both pricing options.

Ultimately you want to bring in as much money as possible.

Would the lower price and higher sign up rates be better for your bottom line? Or would lower sign up rates and higher prices be better?

I think people prefer affordable services because they're on a tight budget. Just imagine two similar products, the same benefits only different in packaging and price. Which would you buy? The one that costs less or the product which costs twice the price the other? People nowadays are just being practical but if you could show them a big difference or explain to them how good your product is compared to others and at the same time prove to them that the product is effective and better than the others then definitely they'll still buy regardless of the price.

The current market trend is for people to buy cheap things. We can thank the media for that, scaring people for the last few years with talks of recession and unemployment. People are just hanging onto their money more.

Invest only what you can lose. Most people are on the average income, and can only afford to lose that much. With all the scams out there, many are fear-stricken as well. It's only natural to keep to a budget.
