Trying a better title. There is an older long thread about this at https://community.logos.com/forums/p/139914/901515.aspx#901515 .

I think Pre-pub price will jump back up to above $200 so this week is it.

Also if we get a few bidders this will drop to $80.00 very soon.

Well, it was $85, but it's back to $90 because CP isn't simple.

Since it's crossed the line, lowering any existing bids from $90 works against us. It makes the CP look $5 less attractive because $85 is no longer fully funded.

At this point, the only way for the price to go down now is for new bidders to bid. The more additional people who place successful bids now, the lower the price will drop, all on its own. So, please spread the word about this deal.

Thanks again to FL for offering this course on CP! Party!!!

Good choice, you fit a lot of info in there, and the "(or less)" covers all the bases!

Thanks for starting a new thread, Steve!

$80 does look very possible :-)

Since it has a close date, it is time to just bid at something that is over the line, i.e. $90 at this point. There can be a debatable value of bidding low to encourage people to bid when it has not reached the line (see the lengthy thread for the debate). But no longer. Likely we could get it at $80 if the $75 bids jumped in at $90. Now is the time to bid.

Yes, exactly. Once it's crossed the line, unsuccessful bids don't lower the price. Successful ones do.

The goal now is to get new people to place successful bids, which will lower the price and motivate other new bidders to join in.

Prior to the a product crossing the line, I am all for gamesmanship and dropping my bid in order to get the peak price to shift to the left.  However, once the product crosses the line, there is no longer any reason to shift your price downward.  You will still get the product at any lower price it may achieve.  In fact, there is a reason to leave your possibly larger bid in place; i.e., new viewers of the bidding will see that a lot of customers valued the resource at a much higher price.  Thus, leaving a strike price higher than the current successful bid, a lower value, will make the resource appear to be more valuable.

My father ran a mom & pop grocery store in the 1950's.  If he was raising the price of a product, he always scrubbed the lower price so that it could not be seen.  On the other hand, if he were to lower the price of a product, he would leave the older, higher price quite visible so that customers could see the reduction.  People act on perceived value.

And now it's back to $85. This could easily get down to $75 with an influx of new bidders. Just don't ask me how many Big Smile

If the $ 70 bids were raised to $80, then projected closing price would become $ 80 (possibly $ 75). Also enough more users placing bids of $ 80 or more would reduce closing price. Thankful for community pricing opportunity to reduce price of 15 video hour course. Thankful for $ 85 being 85% discount off regular price. With enough new successful bids, closing price could become $ 55 or less (with $ 55 being 90% discount).

... and the new current price is $80.

We have 4 days to get more people interested in this course, to drop the price even further.

$90 and $85 have both dropped below 100% funding. Huh?

Please keep in mind that a bid for $90 is also a bid for $80. If you're continuing to lower your bid to try to "drive the price down," there's a chance that $80 won't be fully funded, your bid might fail, or we might lose the $10 savings we managed to gain (from new bids for this course).

Same here. $65 is as much as I'm willing to invest.

Pray for 23.1 % more Logos & Verbum users to bid $ 80 or higher:

  • 33.3 % more => $ 60 closing for all ($ 4.00 per course hour)
  • 23.1 % more => $ 65 closing for all ($ 4.33 per course hour)
  • 14.3 % more => $ 70 closing for all ($ 4.67 per course hour)
  • 6.7 % more => $ 75 closing for all ($ 5.00 per course hour)

Thankful for community pricing of various mobile education courses.

Also with these offers we need the bibliography of resources referenced to- this way we know the extra cost involved to make it 100% useful.

I have several of these I would need to spend an additional $2-400 to accomplish that.

It certainly would be useful to see a bibliography of resources while a course is in CP/Pre-Pub, mostly to be able to get resources when they go on sale. More than once, I've found out that a course used a resource which had been on sale earlier.

The closest thing we have at present is the linked resources document, but that isn't created until about a month before the course ships.

Looks like it is down to the wire and not likely to attract a lot of new bidders:

Time for a careful decision: either it is worth $80 to you or you will likely miss out.

If enough low bidders increase their bid it MAY just go for $75 but it might also miss that mark by a single bid and stay at $80.

If you need more time or more information to make a decision you will need to be prepared to pay a lot more as it will likely close at $80 before you see what you need to see to decide.

If you want this do NOT risk a bid at $75 or lower as even if it gets close to closing and shows $75, last minute bidders may cancel their bids and push it back to $80 before you can change your bid.

Lots of opportunity to miss out: not much time left to make sure you get it for $80.

You can always return it within the grace period if it does not live up to your expectations.....

$80 it is! Maybe $75 might be realistic by tomorrow 👍
