Pricing is gonna depend on your costs, not your market. The last thing you want to do is put a project together or several for that matter, only to find out in the end you didn't make any money, or even worse, you paid for part of it.
When you are searching, look specifically for anything wit Dave G or turfhokie attached to it, they share alot of information, and are the seasoned vets so to speak.
The learning curve is not as bad as you think. Some decisions you have to make from the get go though, are you gonna do specialized products such as Light Links, or stick with the c-9 and c-7 bracket. Personally, I love the light link design, but have never had any real success with them due to cost. you will see alot o reference to Mixed Noble, that is the Holidynamics line, it is just awesome stuff. Speaking of which, any luck with getting in touch with Mike??
Back to pricing, don't be afraid to walk away from a project that you aren't sure you will make money or at minimum cover your costs. I get alot of calls where people expect us to do a job for $250.-- Not gonna happen.
