Assignment on Case study of “Ollo internet Service” internet service and
how to apply product mix pricing strategies on it to maximize profit.
Product Mix Pricing Strategies are on products that are already available in
the market. It is of five types, which we will apply to “Ollo internet Service” as
Product-Line Pricing: This is setting prices across an entire product
line. Like for “Ollo internet Service” that provides internet services,
we will design different types of internet speeds and usages with
varying prices such as below:
Optional Product Pricing: This is pricing optional or accessory
products sold with the main product to maximize profit. Like “Ollo
internet Service” provides two accessories, Cradle and Cable, which
come with different prices to be used with their Dongle. So if you
want you can choose either or neither.
Captive-Product Pricing: It is pricing the products that must be used
with the main product. So to use “Ollo internet Service” we need to
use either one of the following products, whose uses vary with its
Free Usage Volume (GB)
By-Product Pricing: It is pricing the low-value by-products to get rid
of them and to make the main products price competitive. As services
do not produce any by-products we cannot apply this strategy for
“Ollo internet Service”.
Product-Bundle Pricing: Pricing bundles of products, which includes
slow moving and fast moving products, to be sold together. Such as
“Ollo internet Service” making monthly packages to not only sell
different speeds with different usage sizes but also different
accessories such as follows.
256 Kbps 4.0 GB
Dongle + Cradle
Dongle + Cable
Dongle + Cradle/Cable
Dongle/ Indoor /Outdoor
As we know product mix pricing strategy is applied to products that have
already crossed their growth stage and are entering the maturity stage. That is
why we are trying to price our services to beat the competition and to encourage
the customers to switch brands. And we believe to do this we should follow the
product bundle pricing strategy which would lead to maximizing our profits
while defending our market share.
