That is somewhat true, but it also depends on the scenario.

He mentioned he's marketing to people with a median income of $110,000+.

Among higher income folks who have to spend more, $15.00 is nothing to them. However, a percentage off of something that has the potential of costing them a very significant amount of money... (Anything more than an hour on the workbench there and your $15.00 off is nothing...)

Think about it this way...

The average American household income for 2011 was $49,445 (According to USA Today)
He is marketing to an area who makes more than twice the average household income... This is not your "normal" demographic represented in a standard sample audience.

@PCX and StableSolutions

You both make very good points and the main reason why I choose to put a dollar amount was because I heard of the what PCX is talking about. But I also understand the point of $20 being very little to some people.

I forgot to ask what do you guys think of the headline I placed?

I am thinking of switching over to:

"Rincon Dynamic Computer Repair - Keeping Technology At Its Best."
