Business decisions are tough, especially pricing. C2 has to strike a balance… if it charges very high monthly fees and no percentage, it discourages trade leaders who have no subscribers yet, and may lose their participation; end result fewer trade leaders here, especially fewer long term leaders. If it charges very low monthly fees and very high percentage, it might encourage lots of experimentation from many trade leaders, but is that actually desirable? C2 chose an in between route with fees that are serious enough to weed out experimental wannabees, and percentages that are onerous but still livable to leaders and here we are.
Of course, all of that may be off base! I’m a trade leader, not a C2 insider. But it seems a reasonable if oversimplified overview of the situation. Anyway, it’s your nickel and your strategy… get started and join us or walk away.
