Bit confused here. Store says $34.95 but Michael said it would be $25.00 in Aug going to $30 in Sept. I'm quite sure it's well worth it at $35 but I just want to make sure it wasnt a typo before I make the purchase. Thanks.[a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=130269\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]
The pricing is correct at $34.95 and Michael will explain all later today on What's New...

New Video Tutorial?
« Reply #41 on: July 28, 2007, 11:07:12 AM »

We have placed the new tutorial online this morning (Eastern time) but will not be announcing its availability until later today at the earliest. The reason for this is we want to be sure that all systems are operating smoothly before large numbers of people start downloading the 2GB+ of files.

The price has been raised slightly. The reason for this is because we are announcing simultaneous with the new tutorial a very exciting new Endowment Fund, which will be making grants available to photographers around the world to finance photographic projects.

We were planning on charging $25 during August, as a special promotion, and then raising the price to $30 thereafter. Now, because of the launch of the Endowment Fund, we have revised the price to $35, and it will remain at that level.

Watch for the formal announcement of both the Tutorial and the Endowment Fund later today.

Personally I'm cool with the price of $35, as it's well worth it as are all your other products...but if I were you I would never correlate a price increase to a forced donation - it doesn't sit well with many people, including myself.  I'm all for donation opportunity, as long as it's voluntary.  If you as a company wanted to donate a certain percentage of your sales (see how that's worded better) to a fund, more power to you.  Just try not to make it sound like your customers are doing all the work.

My post was largely answered above.

The programme looks great -- thanks.

Hey Chris - you forgot to get rid of the . mac temp files again - might want to fix that before you get more questions/complaints.

Excellent vid quality!  I'm already watching #1 on the big screen

We are not forcing anyone to donate to anything. WE are making the donation, as you will see when the formal announcement is made.

The price that was mentioned here was our thinking last week. Our thinking has changed since, and with the launch of the new Endowment program has been raised slightly.

The video tutorial still offers tremendous value.

Here is a link to the Endowment announcement that will be made formally in a few hours. I believe that once you read it you will understand that value in what were attemtpting to do.

I'm not trying to argue, really!

I'm just saying that your wording comes off a certain way - I know that YOU are making the donation.  Just re-read your post...

"The price has been raised slightly...We were planning on charging $25...Now, because of the launch of the Endowment Fund, we have revised the price to $35"

I also understand that because you tried to accomodate customers asking for advanced information, and circumstances since changed before release, that you obviously need to explain the higher than expected price.  

I admit I tried thinking of a better phrase to express your intent, and at the moment can not...

I have now announced the new tutorial and the Endowment program in a separate topic here on the forum. Since this thread is quite long winded and is in some ways superseded by the launch, I'm suggesting that further discussion about it be moved to the new thread.

I'll be making a formal announcement on What's New later today.
