Cost Related Reasons for employing Whitemarsh’s services
1. The price strategy was designed to promote the widest possible website membership among membership classes, which are individuals, information systems departments, professional training organizations, and universities and colleges.
2. Because the Whitemarsh materials cost, production, and distribution structures are radically different from traditional sources for these same materials, it is not even remotely fair to compare the WisWeb prices to those you would pay a professional bookstore, a training organization, or a consulting company. They have to charge many, many times more to recover their costs. If you removed their costs from their prices, then the prices are comparable. Your real choice then does not relate to the value you receive, but the price you chose to pay. (top)
