Transcripts - Pricing - Strategies

  • 1. Prof  Shivananda  R  Koteshwar   Director,  The  Amaatra  Academy   shivoo@pes.edu  /  Facebook:  shivoo.koteshwar   You don’t sell through price. You sell the price. For Mount Carmel College BBM Students, Sept 2013
  • 2.   Factors  affecting  pricing  decision     Strategies  followed  by  companies  in  reality
  • 3.   Consider   the   psychology   of   prices   and   not   simply   the   economics     Consumer  perception  of  value  is  important     Customers   use   price   less   when   they   can   judge   quality   of   a   product.     Price  becomes  an  important  quality  signal  when  customers   can’t  judge  quality;  price  is  used  to  say  something  about  a   product.       Price  often  depends  on  circumstances  –  You  always  pay  more   to  fly  when  you  want  to  fly         Consumers  are  often  prepared  to  pay  more  if  they  expect  to   get  excellent  service     Adding  value  doesn’t  mean  dropping  price     Price  will  be  compared    -­‐  Other  price  offers,  Prices  previously   paid,   Going   rate,   Alternative   product   price,   Alternative   substitute  price
