Here's a suggestion to perhaps generate some more Xtra Styles PAK sales from existing BIAB customers.

Currently, the PAKs are grouped sequentially from 1 to 12. I'm primarily interested in jazz styles, so I've got little interest in paying for country styles and the like. Fortunately, you've made it possible for customers to select only to buy the jazz styles within those PAKs. But it's a bit cost-prohibitive to buy the jazz styles from each of the 12 Xtra Styles PAKs.

Suggestion: Repackage the Xtra Styles PAKs by genre and offer them at a bulk-discount price. For example, "Xtra Styles JAZZ PAK 1-12" or "Xtra Styles COUNTRY PAK 1-12" and priced at perhaps two-thirds the price of buying all of the jazz styles individually.

Does the idea have merit?
