the price is right! pricing and promotion strategies to grow your business
Price is one of the 5 P’s of Marketing, and the importance of a solid pricing strategy to your overall marketing plan is immense. Pricing strategies involve more than just figuring out how much you should charge for your goods or services! You need to develop a pricing process to determine market share, competitive pricing structures and whether you can raise cash to fuel your business. Often, businesses guess at what they should charge rather than understanding all the costs of doing business. It’s important to have a way to track costs so that you can easily change pricing depending on business needs and market demands.
