Mistakes to Avoid in Implementing Pricing Strategies

1. Avoid Setting Prices too Low

It is conventional wisdom that lower prices attract better sales but this often couldn’t be further from the truth. With this strategy, companies start undervaluing their products, selling them at a fraction of their ideal price points. Sure, revenue may skyrocket initially, but you won’t be able to sustain that level for very long without this approach wreaking havoc on your bottom line. Also, pricing is one of the greatest tools for molding the perception of your audience for your product. Pricing your products too low can make it unattractive to quality-conscious consumers and this can derive the conclusion that it is weaker than its more premium-priced competition.

2. Avoid Basing Prices of Your Product Solely on Cost

Product pricing strategies consider costs which is the only way to ensure that there is a reliable profit margin in place for each of your products. However, it is very essential to take a broader view of your product in the marketplace. Decide beforehand the role that your product is going to play in your business strategy. It is always a good idea to consider various variations on key product offerings, each with an important role to play in shaping your future plans.

3. Avoid Keeping Prices the Same Across the Board

This is one of the most common mistakes made while implementing pricing strategies in marketing. You should essentially avoid keeping the same prices across all verticals and should use multiple price points to check which product and price points drive maximum conversions. This can help drive sales on all fronts. Moreover, following dynamic pricing allows businesses to change their price points based on various factors that are tied directly to the behavior of customers.
