Hi: I teach drums and am rather particular about selecting new students. My age range is from 11-17. I prefer students that are about to enter middle school or in High School. Adults do not do well with my teaching methods. They have to live on my side of town. I know from experience parents do not like to travel far to get to my studio, That limits my service area to Denver's South East area. (Aurora, Centennial, Lone Tree, Greenwood Village, and Parker areas. The Denver metro area is huge and parents will not travel across town when the weather is bad for a 12-year-olds drum lesson. Narrowing down those browsing parameters would save the customer and me a lot of time in selecting the right student and teacher. Thanks.

Hi: I mentioned this the last time you changed your pricing structure and even suspended my account for a while because I felt it was too high for my type of business. I teach students to play drums. I charge $25 per hour once a week. I am retired and do not do this for a living. I enjoyed the pricing structure you had for $3.33 per quote and did pick up several students over the course of my membership. I currently have 9 students, which did not all come from your service, and they do not all come for lessons every week due to school schedules and parents transportation schedules. You can see I do not make a lot of money in my business and am rather particular in choosing students because I know who will sustain lessons and who will get to my home studio during bad weather in Colorado. With all that being said you can understand how getting charged for quotes for potential students does not work for me. Also setting a budget does not work because I may only make one or 2 quotes a month. To get charged when I do not get a new student may cost me a lot. So, for me, in reality, I would not mind a system where I get charged a flat rate per quote and follow up. A larger fee when I do not even make a contact would greatly cut into the small income I have. Thanks for your concerns.
