Sydney Subscribed 2016: Pricing Strategies for Tomorrow

A recent Simon-Kucher global pricing study shows that more than 80% of all companies face increasing price pressure. Pure price level reactions can hardly be the answer to this challenge – the change of the revenue / price model on the other hand can be. This presentation highlights why companies should think out-of-the-box when it comes to their price model and how, for example, subscription models and bundling can not only protect but actually improve margins.

  • ★★ How Long Does She Want You to Last? ★★ A recent study proved that the average man lasts just 2-5 minutes in bed (during intercourse). The study also showed that many women need at least 7-10 minutes of intercourse to reach "The Big O" - and, worse still... 30% of women never get there during intercourse. Clearly, most men are NOT fulfilling there women's needs in bed. Now, as I've said many times - how long you can last is no guarantee of being a GREAT LOVER. But, not being able to last 20, 30 minutes or more, is definitely a sign that you're not going to "set your woman's world on fire" between the sheets. Question is: "What can you do to last longer?" Well, one of the best recommendations I can give you today is to read THIS report. In it, you'll discover a detailed guide to an Ancient Taoist Thrusting Technique that can help any man to last much longer in bed. I can vouch 100% for the technique because my husband has been using it for years :) Here's the link to the report ●●● https://tinyurl.com/rockhardxx

Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Case 1: From fixed to success based pricing Situation & Challenge Solution Project Example: B2B Marketplace Global online platform to connect buyers and suppliers, secure invoice and payment capabilities, and software (buyers only) Price model:  Membership model for buyers  Flat fee per relationship for suppliers with qualifying activity level Challenges:  Limited number of buyers  No monetisation of network growth  Huge tail of small customers  One size fits all pricing created barrier to adoption by small customers Breakeven Total spend total invoice value processed “old” flat fee Old price New % of spend Revenue impact: + 300% 9
  10. 10. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Case 2: From usage based to two-part tariff Situation & Challenge Solution Project Example: Rail operator Long-haul passenger transport, regional passenger transport Price model:  “Pay-as-you-go” for more than 100 years  Ticket price based on distance traveled Challenges:  Increasing competition from low-cost airlines and private cars  Decrease in passenger numbers and revenue More than 4m Bahncards sold Increase in passenger volume Revenue impact EUR 100m p.a. appr. 1,900 km Total spend total km per year BahnCard 50% “old” pay- as-you-go 140 € per year 10
  11. 11. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Case 3: From fixed to customer value based Situation & Challenge Solution Manufacturer of truck tires developed innovative new tire that has a 20% higher durability Price model:  Pay per tire  Discount for higher volumes of tires Challenges:  Intense price competition across channels  No possibility to charge higher price for new, more valuable tire  New value proposition: Solution provider: "Keep your truck rolling"  New model: Price/km - trucker's cost aligned with revenue basis  New pricing perspective: Focus on TCO rather than unit price  Monetisation of innovation: "Automatically" higher price for better value (duration) Project Example: Tire manufacturer 11
  12. 12. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Simon-Kucher approach step 1: Assess customer value perception Peter F. Drucker "Customers don't buy products, they buy the benefits that these products and their suppliers offer them." 12

  16. 16. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Packaging cannot be that hard – can it? 16
  17. 17. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Bad example: Packaging is more than A+B – 15%  This "trial" cost a high two-digit million figure  Manager at Rogers: "This was our first attempt. We just wanted to try out packaging. Meanwhile, we do a better job."  Conclusion: Poor packaging destroys value 17
  18. 18. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Bad example: There should be a package portfolio not an all-in 18
  19. 19. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Bad example: Packages need to differentiate on relevant features A B C … … … … Should these features be differentiated across packages? Are these features valuable enough to create up-sell? Should these features be differentiated across packages? 19
  20. 20. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Well-designed packages create a win-win Increased customer satisfactionValue capturing Vendor perspective Customer perspective Packaging Receive discounts (or other incentives)Exploit differences in customer willingness-to-pay Enhance cross-selling Compete on breadth of portfolio/solutions Buy solutions, not products Enjoy convenience (one-stop shop) Reduce transaction/ search/delivery costs Decrease price transparency Reduce costs (Economies of scope in sales/ops) 20
  21. 21. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Packaging can exploit differences in willingness-to-pay $ WtP Co . Profit $ Co . WtP Profit Volume $ WTt * Co.* * Profit Example  Customer with limited budget: $5  Max. willingness to pay for either coffee or cake: $3  Customer would buy either coffee or a cake  Bundle price: $5  customer buys both  Win-Win: Customer benefit = discount Provider benefit: 50 % more profit Price $3 Price $3 Price $5 Individual customer's budget: €5 * WtP =Willingness to Pay ** Co. = variable costs Volume Volume 21
  22. 22. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Simon-Kucher approach step 1: Define packaging strategy Degree of complexity (# of offers)Simple Complex  Definition: One offer with all products & features included  Examples: Workday HCM  Definition: Packages which combine a variety of product categories  Examples: Fortknox  Definition: A variety of packages with increasingly more feature functionality  Examples: Xero  Definition: A variety of packages with implementation complexity limitations  Examples: US Sage Accounting  Definition: A build-your-own package approach with bundled discounts  Examples: Oracle Price Bundling All-you- can-eat Category bundling Good/ Better/ Best: Features Good/ Better/ Best: Complexity 22
  23. 23. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Simon-Kucher approach step 2: Define package contents ... selected "leader" products High value products / features that most customers want to or "must" buy. Coke & Fries ... some "filler" product(s) Medium value products / features that most customers consider "nice to have." Coffee ... NO "killer" product(s) Products which either have "own" willingness-to pay-or no bundle fit A successful package consists of ... 23
  24. 24. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Identifying leaders, fillers, and killers using the Simon-Kucher feature evaluation matrix 1 2 3 4 … Features/modules Simon-Kucher Project Example Product/feature evaluation matrix 24
  25. 25. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Simon-Kucher step 4: Develop package portfolio and pricing Good-better-best: Role based packages:  Packages with increasingly more feature functionality  Differentiation across customers based on value and willingness-to-pay  Need for behavioral tactics to steer choice  Packages that are targeted at specific types of users  Clear segments or use-cases drive package choice  Use cases don’t change over time (no upsell path) 25
  26. 26. Zuora presentation 2016 - Simon-Kucher Example impact of packaging optimisation Source: Simon-Kucher project example Approach  Research showed that the entry package met large percentage of customers’ needs  As a result, we reduced value of entry package to better align with existing price point  New features were added and existing features shifted to premium tiers to justify higher prices Before re-design: After re-design: Plus (55%) - $39 Plus (24%) - $39 (reduced value) Deluxe (32%) - $79 Deluxe (48%) - $99 (Price increase) Elite (12%) - $149 Elite (21%) - $199 (Price increase) Advantage (7%) $349 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% 100% May August % of new subscribers New tier # of new subs 1,524 1,313 -14% Average MRR per new subscriber $66 $124 88% MRR from new subscribers $100K $162K 62% Project Example: SaaS Impact 26
