Just one marketing question. I am selling GCC CO2 laser and chinese NdYag in Eastern Europe. After crisis thinking start sales of chinese CO2 lasers with glass tubes.
So question is to potential customers, or to people who bought lasers in past:
HOW POSSIBLE DESCRIBE PRICE LEVEL when customer start thinking about purchase of US/Taiwan/European made laser? Or from opposite site - till which price level customer can think ONLY about chinese glass tube?
For example - if you have 4000 USD - of course you are thinking only about glass tube. Start with cheaper equipment, make money and after can buy more expensive laser.
If you have 15 000 USD - you can buy laser with metal tube.
But where is amount of decision changing
Of course we are speaking about similar machines with medium sized table, mostly for engraving. Also I think answers will be true for USA/Europe. Any suggestion of laser users are welcomed.
