  • Upcoming Webcast Win/Loss Analysis For More Successful Products With Steve Johnson Date: Friday, September 21, 2012 Time: 12 noon EDT/ 9:00 a.m. PDT Register/Archive: [Register here] Most product managers think of Win/Loss analysis as something that sales people do and something that only benefits the way vendors sell. But what can be learned about the portfolio, product, and feature set? Steve Johnson is Chief Marketing Officer for Primary Intelligence with a focus on instilling best practices in win/loss analysis and customer experience. His ideas on customer interaction help companies incorporate market facts into their product creation, marketing programs, and sales enablement.© AIPMM 2012
  • Upcoming Webcast How to Use Offering Tiers and Levers to Control Price Negotiations with Mark Burton Date: Friday, Sept 28, 2012 Time: 12 noon EDT/ 9:00 a.m. PDT Register/Archive: [Register Here] • The rise of the “economic buyer” and why traditional value-based pricing approaches may fail with them • How to craft an offering strategy that enables sales to manage this challenge new type of customer • How to use tiered offerings and simple offering levers to ensure any request for a discount is met with reduction in the value of the offering Mark says, "The increasing power of procurement of professional purchasing organizations is putting unprecedented pressure on price. Product Managers have a critical role to play in reversing this trend by creatively defining offerings that enable sales teams to gain the upper hand in tense price negotiations. Using a few simple techniques product managers can empower sales to call the bluff of poker-playing customers that want high value for low prices. As a pricing expert, I see the opportunity for product management and sales to work more together more effectively to increase pricing leverage and reduce the corrosive effects of discounting."© AIPMM 2012
