Unfortunately, I think nobody knows or cares. They see their price better, and Liang Seng is "branded", and maybe no need to wait for shipment coz they keep inventory, so...a lot of work to be done on your side :)

I don't think you wanna enter a price war with Liang Seng. They have a larger capacity to keep inventory and ask for lower, bulk prices. A better plan would be to play with your branding - you are after all kettlebellsg, and you specialize in kettlebells, whereas Liang Seng is a more general site. More kettlebell-related value added services might be an option too. Coaching with Herman is a good way to start.

Price wars only signifies desperation and lazy marketing/branding.
There are many ways to get your brand out, cutting prices is unless you're really desperate.

Against an establish place like liang seng, you're only asking to go belly up.

heh you're right, thanks. so far i have been referring my customers to herman and the classes.

in fact we are already in talks with a famous military organisation and a secondary sch to implement kettlebell training.

Have the idea of "we are not the cheapest, but we are the best".

That'll be tough... you don't want to cheapen the training either. Perhaps you can package the two somehow so that there's a discount according to either # of bells purchased or number of training classes purchased?

You need to find ways to value add to the purchase.

Buying a Bell is a long term investment, i've already told you many ways to value add to the service such as giving a free hands on tutorial upon purchase and attractive group class pricing to learn the ways of the KB.

You need to create a demand for your bells that have exclusive privileges unlike a faceless entity like liang seng, you need a community.
