By all appearances the cash flow to produce Barnes isn't there.

It seems that the $30 price point that it just takes soooo many users to cover the costs. If would be interesting to know if everyone increased their bid by ten $10 if we would send it over the top and then the last minute rush would take this back down to $30 or less anyhow.

Anyhow, it has moved a bit since your blog... we'll just have to wait I guess for the last 23% for the next couple of years. Never mind, Barnes makes a great landmark on the Logos website anyhow!

Problem is, that $30 point on the graph is already counting all the people who have bid higher than 30. So if you want to try to raise the "sweet spot" to $40, the only people raising their bid by $10 who would affect the position of the dot at $40 would be those people who currrently have bid between $30 and $40. Those of us who've already bid more than $40 could raise our bid all we want and it wouldn't budge the dot at $40 any further. Since the dot at $30 is almost twice as high as the dot at $40, I don't think the numbers are there to cover it at $40 either, unfortunately.

It's the under 30 crowd who would have the most impact. Bumping bids from $25 to $30 would make a significant difference.

Indeed the Youth could have so much impact if only they increased their commitment Wink

OK, how about a new strategy. What if everyone bids their age? What's the average age of Logos users? Logos forum users? People who have an interest in Barnes Notes? The latter group probably averages the highest number, due to Barnes being a relic from a bygone era well-loved classic.

As long as your age is younger than your current bid, my age is nowhere near my current bid .... I'll up the challenge and say bid double your age (and if you go off the scale, then just bid max price)

Is that chronological or biological age? Or is it the age you feel today?

Personally, I've been in at $50 for ages.

Every blessing

Alan

BTW as Barnes has been propping up the CP page for years, what will happen if it ever goes live in pre-pub? Will the rest of the CP page just collapse?

Or maybe leave room for more offerings?

I bid $90 weeks ago. I'd bid $200 if I could simply because I won't have to pay that much in the end. I'm watching it closely and will drop to the average bid when it's time.

Shawn:

You do not need to drop your bid - your $90 bid already includes a bid at all lower price points.  The only reason you might want to drop your bid is if the average bid is higher than you really are able to pay at that point.  At which point, you might just withdraw your bid.

 

Blessings,
