    Hi all,

    Please humour me :) You are the owner of a export company.

    I can produce you a complete company presentation magazine with unlimited text/pics and info as you wish, with full contact details.

    I will then deliver this magazine to 10k buyers/importers of your products, for free and which have subscribe to receive the mag.

    In addition they get a complete company profile on our on line directory with full contact details, and free use to trade boards.

    I can get away with making a profit at $2390.

    Do you think I could ask more?

    Should I stick to this price and make the smallish profit, but get more clients?

    Could I ask more, but do something like a 50/50? so ask say 4k, take 2k upfront and promise to deliver x amount of business, if so they pay the balance of 2k?

    Thanks for any input :)

    I would start from small sums if there will be a demand for your service then start asking for more money. ;)

    You have two options... cheap and bulk or expensive and premium!

    It is your choice but it depends on your goals and ideas for expansion etc :)

    So if you sold units at lets say $1000 a pop. How much would you be willing to pay to have your complete company profile and catalogue to be hand delivered into the hands of 10k buyers of your product?

    Small guys who need your service don't have a few extra grand lying around. Bigger guys who can afford such a service will either do it internally or outsource it. It means getting on their approved vendor list. Recommend you look to ways to reduce the cost of the magazine so you can work on volume and get some deals and traction first. Then go big game hunting.
