Stop Underpricing! - Develop a Pricing Strategy that Maximizes Profitability.
"Profit" is not a dirty word. It’s OK to make a lot of money – even what some consider to be unconscionable profits. But to make those profits, you must correctly price your product or service.
For many entrepreneurs (and Fortune 100 companies), pricing is an afterthought that comes when getting ready to launch a new product or service. Companies often under-value what they are delivering – so many times they under price it. Or they base the price on what it costs to produce. Or they guess. None of these are good strategies.
Pricing Gurus, Dan DeVries and Mike Pritchard have seen the good, the bad and the ugly of pricing – from major corporations to garage shop start-ups. They will show you how to avoid many of the common pricing mistakes, and take a scientific approach to develop a pricing strategy for your particular business.
