Why Prosecco Is Cheaper Than Champagne (but just as nice)

This is a partnered post. All thoughts expressed are my own.

Marketing professionals describe this attitude as ‘perceived value’. It means that consumers judge a product’s value based on their inner feeling because they have no idea about its true cost. A consumer just thinks that this item is worth or not worth a price charged and then decides whether to buy it or not. Marketing experts do their best to create such an image of a product that it would associate with good quality and high price.

One of the items in the package was a 1/2 fully cooked boneless Kurobuta ham.
