  • Fixed Cost or overhead cost are costs that do not vary with production level or sales revenue.
    Variable cost vary directly with level of production.
  • Total cost consist of the sum of the fixed and variable costs for any given level of production.
  • It refers to the gain a company experiences in producing a product over a period of time. Workers learn shortcuts, materials flow more smoothly, and procurement costs fall. The result is that average cost falls with accumulated production experience. This decline in the average cost with accumulated production experience is called the experience curve or learning curve.

    Average cost is the cost per unit at a level of production given total cost

  • Also used for season items, specialty items, slower-moving items, items with high storage and handling cost, demand-inelastic (drugs)
  • The firm determines the price that would yield its target rate of return on investment (ROI).
    Example 15 % to 20% ROI

    -does not consider other scenarios- if item will not sell at 50,000
    -manufacturers should consider different prices and their impact on sales volume
    -Find ways to decrease fixed costs and variable costs to lower break even volume
  • There is always a segment of buyers who care only about the price
    Deliver more value than the competitor and demonstrate this to prospective buyers

    2. 2. I. Consumer Psychology and Pricing II. Steps in Setting Price III. Learning what Price Adaptation is all about. IV. Promotional Pricing Tactics V. Differentiated Pricing VI. Increasing Prices VII. Brand Leader Responses To Competitive Price Cuts Outline
    3. 3. How do consumers process & evaluate prices? process evaluate prices
    4. 4. CONSUMER PSYCHOLOGY and PRICING  REFERENCE PRICES  PRICE-QUALITY INFERENCES  PRICE ENDINGS  PRICE CUES
    5. 5.  CONSUMER PSYCHOLOGY provides opportunities to examine issues such as what factors are most important…  when people decide to purchase a particular item  how customers determine the value of a service  and whether or not marketing promotions can convince a reluctant consumer to try a new product for the 1st time.  PRICING is the process of determining what a company will receive in exchange for its products Definition of Terms
    6. 6. REFERENCE PRICES Last Price Paid Fair price Lower-bound Typical Price
    7. 7. They may also refer to: Usual Discounted PriceCompetitor’s Price Expected Future Price
    8. 8. REFERENCE PRICES  are prices that buyers carry in their minds and refer to when looking at a given product.  is one component of psychological pricing – sellers consider the psychology of prices & not simply the economics.  is a strategy in which a product is sold at a price just below its main competing brand.
    9. 9. Price-Quality Inferences  Use price as an indicator of price  E.g. Waiting list, limited editions, etc.
    10. 10. PRICE CUES  Strategies……..  Ending with 9 or .99  Discounts  “Best Deal”  When to use…  Customers purchase item infrequently  Customers are new  Product designs vary over time  Prices vary seasonally  Quality or sizes vary across stores
    11. 11. Setting the Price 1 Select the price objective 2 Determine demand 3 Estimate costs 4 Analyze competitor price mix 5 Select pricing method 6 Select final price
    12. 12. 1. Selecting the Pricing Objective Survival Maximum current profit Maximum market share Maximum market skimming Product-quality leadership
    13. 13. 2. Determine Demand Price Elasticity of Demand Estimating Demand Curves Price Sensitivity
    14. 14. Customers are likely to be less sensitive to price changes when: product is more distinctive less aware of substitutes cannot easily compare the quality of substitutes expenditure is a smaller part of buyer’s total income
    15. 15. Customers are likely to be less sensitive to price changes when: Part of the cost is paid by another party used with previously purchased assets small compared to the total cost of the end product
    16. 16. Estimating Demand Curves  Statistical Analysis  Forecasting  Price experiments  25% off or 25% more  Surveys
    17. 17. Price Elasticity of Demand  Changes in price affect consumer demand: Source: Marketing Management, Kotler and Keller, 13th ed.
    18. 18. 3. Estimate Cost Fixed Cost Variable Cost process output
    19. 19. The sum of variable and fixed cost for any given level of production is the total cost
    20. 20. As production accumulates average cost decreases Source: Marketing Management, Kotler and Keller, 13th ed.
    21. 21. Activity Based Costing
    22. 22. Target Costing determine target price and desired function given product’s appeal and competitor’s price Then: Target Selling Price = $ 9.90 Less Profit Margin = $ 3.40 Target Cost = $ P 6.50
    23. 23. 4. Analyze Competitor Price Mix  Identify nearest price competitors  Take competitor’s features and prices into account  Make decision to charge more, the same or less than competitors  Monitor competitors’ reaction to your pricing strategy
    24. 24. Different pricing methods can be used in varying situations Markup pricing Target-return pricing Perceived-value pricing Value pricing Going-rate pricing Auction-type pricing
