i was under the impression they were doing this sale for a limited number of pairs total. when theyre out, theyre out and youre sol.
Did that praxis prebuy @ 400$ or that ninthward buy even get 100 orders?
Theres lots of attention here so its hard to tell the real interest and commitment people will put up when its time to throw some cash down.

Sound like you like to complicate things... must be econ major?
My decision making matrix:
250/pair = 100% chance sale.
325/pair = 75% chance sale.
375/pair = 50% chance sale.
See where I'm going with this?
Now back to the S/D curves on the Pareto chart...We're sorta like 7-Eleven. We're not always doing business, but we're always open.

Generically, I like finding ways to get real world, interactive, multi-variate, human populated systems to work better in the face of uncertainty and variability, systemic response to uncertainty being the key are of focus. Realistically, it's a lot less glamorous than it sounds.
And I still like skiing better.
Anyway, it's not complicated at all.
Let the buyer choose their price. All you have to do is set the rules of the game correctly.
And remember, it's not 100% at $250 vs. 75% at 300, etc. It's more like X percent at $250 vs. Y% at $300 PLUS Z% at $250. Depending on the price/prob distribution of the buyer, the whole point is that you might get more total sales at the same average price, because you're better matching the curve instead of simply chopping off the upper half the probability distribution. Some of those $250 buyers WOULD buy at $300, and in a limited quantity sale, by getting them out at $300, you're making "room" to sell to "new" customers at $200. Actually, the customers aren't new, they're there either way, but you know what I mean. Price elasticity/different sizes of coffee at Starbucks/etc/Econ 101.
I wish I remembered what an S/D thing on a Pareto thing was.

Not to turn this into a politics thread, but I'm obviously of supporter of the theory of congestion toll pricing. We need it on I-70 here in CO. You want to drive to the mountains between 7am-10am and back from 4pm-7pm on the weekends? Great, put $10 per car in the pot which we'll just label "funds for future mass transit on I-70."
Sorry Bluehouse for the sidetrack. Best of luck with the sale and season either way. I'm sure you guys will be fine just doing things normally.Thrutchworthy Production Services

Bluehouse, do we need to go ahead and place the order we are going to make in our cart? I'm assuming this is the only way to reliably determine how fast the sale will go. Otherwise, if people just sign up but don't list what they are going to buy the information is kind of useless.
If we place them in our cart beforehand will their price change when the sale goes into effect, or will we need to reorder them at the reduced price?Originally Posted by wintermittentOriginally Posted by snowsprite

We're trying to figure out the best way to do that. I'm not sure how our cart is setup so I don't know if the price would reflect the new sale price if its already added at the other price. Our web guy is gone for the week so I'll get back to you guys on this.
We may send an email to everyone registered and just ask them to reply with how many they are planning on buying.
Does anyone else have a suggestion?
I'll let you know as soon I hear back. If you know someone else that is planning on buying tell them to register on the site. This will give us a more accurate head count and we will be able to pass that info on to you.Bluehouse Ski Co.

I would think that having the people place what they plan on buying in their cart on the site would be the ideal method. It should be fairly easy to simply update the price of the items in your cart when the sale starts.
To me at least, it seems fairly troublesome to have to keep track of emails to determine how fast your stock will sell. It could also be bothersome from a users perspective to have to update your cart once the sale starts.Originally Posted by wintermittentOriginally Posted by snowsprite

send out an email/press release telling everyone to put their items in the cart.

Sept. 1 might not be the best date to start a sale since it's the begining of Labor day weekend. You may want to put it off a week or move it up a day or 2. You might be able to gauge the interest just by the number of new accts that have been set up on your site."We don't beat the reaper by living longer, we beat the reaper by living well and living fully." - Randy Pausch

...or email promotional codes to all the folks registered on your site allowing purchase of skis at the $250 special immediately.
as i posted a while back, sept 1 could be tricky in terms of computer access -and clearly from other posts - not just for me.

I met up with Adam on Monday & fondled the District & Mr 179. The construction, materielas & finish all look great & as good as anything you'd see at the shop. Should be great skis. The sale price makes a purchase decision a definite no brainer!"If you are prepared for zombies, you are prepared for anything"

count me as eagerly anticipating the answer to the stiffness (torsionally?)question above.

The Districts reminded me of the Salomon Gun. The Mr's felt stiffer throughout the entire ski, I would say they reminded me of a K2 Public Enemy. The Mr 179 will be a great all conditions resort ski. You can tell the Districts are definitely targeted more toward softer snow conditions and will be a great powder/backcountry twin. The BIG question: What & how will they ACTUALLY feel and be like on snow? Only time will tell, but I'm sure they will be fun."If you are prepared for zombies, you are prepared for anything"
