    I am doing a little market research. I am talking to some world-wide distributors, and am wanting to get some opinions from some of you guys.

    What is more important to you? Name brand, or price/quality ratio?

    For example,

    If you could get a gi shipped to your door for $45 (including shipping), and it is comparable to the quality of an HCK or better GI, but has no name brand, would you buy it? Obviously, with a brand name you are assured of a certain level of quality and I would need to gain your trust with a no-name brand. This is where a good marketing strategy would come in to play.

    credability is the most important... Other people have to agree it is good. Not paid spokesman.. but real people.

    Yes, I realize that, and I have incorporated that in to my marketing plan.

    As with everything, good customer service goes a long way.

    Customer service will do you well. If you ever want somebody to test out your products and post my reviews so people on here can see that somebody unbaised is giving reviews, let me know.
