I haven't seen many of those but I do remember a couple where the first question asked was "Okay, cost per unit is what? Second question is "why aren't you having everything made in china"?
And to be honest, from a bean counter perspective, they're right.
I get like 50 of these conversations a month.
Potential customer: You know, what is most important to me is your trying to keep things on USA soil, that really means a LOT to me.
Me: Hey, I appreciate that. It can be difficult because most/all of our competition is sourcing everything from china so it costs us significantly more to manufacture our products.
Potential customer: Well, I'm going to either get your V1500 or the Acme wozer15 which is $999. So if you can lower your price to $999 I'll order right now.
Me: I'm sorry, we just can't do that. The wozer15 is a very good sub but being made in china allows acme to price it a little lower than we can.
Potential customer: Well, if you're willing to lose a sell over $100 I guess I'll have to go with the chinese made wozer.
So much for the "most important thing" stuff
