    I have a friend that does similar packages and one thing that he does is gives a higher discount percentage to the higher priced packages. For example the bronze package would have a 5% Discount, Silver 7%, and Gold 10%. This gives an incentive to the customers to sign up for the better package. You would have to make sure that the discount is covered by the gain though. Good luck!
