Good afternoon everyone
I am creating a general, human edited directory and I am looking for some feedback on pricing structure. I am at a lost on how much to charge for each paid level. I donít want to charge too much and risk alienating customers especially being that this will be a new site and will initially have a low PR. I also donít want to charge too little as I plan to put a good amount of time and effort into maintaining the site and I would like to be compensated justly. Below is a description of the benefit of each level and the pricing I thought was fair. I would greatly appreciate any feedback. Thank you in advance.
