Pricing
 Pricing is one of the most important elements of the marketing mix, as it is
the only element of the marketing mix, which generates a turnover for the
organisation. The other 3 elements of the marketing mix are the variable
cost for the organisation;
 Product - It costs to design and produce your products.
 Place - It costs to distribute your products.
 Promotion - It costs to promote your products.
Price must support the other elements of the marketing mix. Pricing is difficult
and must reflect supply and demand relationship. Pricing a product too high
or too low could mean lost sales for the organisation.
Pricing Factors
Pricing should take the following factors into account:
 Fixed and variable costs
 Competition
 Company objectives
 Proposed positioning strategies
 Target group and willingness to pay
Types Of Pricing Strategies
Pricing strategies Matrix
Penetration Pricing
Here the organisation sets a low price to increase sales and market share.
Once market share has been captured the firm may well then increase their
price.
Example: A television satellite company sets a low price to get subscribers
then increases the price as their customer base increases.
Skimming Pricing
 The organisation sets an initial high price and then slowly lowers the price
to make the product available to a wider market. The objective is to skim
profits of the market layer by layer.
Example : A games console company reduces the price of their console over 5
years, charging a premium at launch and lowest price near the end of its life
cycle.
Competition Pricing
Setting a price in comparison with competitors. In reality a firm has three
options and these are to price lower, price the same or price higher than
competitors.
Example: Some firms offer a price matching service to match what their
competitors are offering. Others will go further and refund back to the
customer more money than the difference between their price and the
competitor's price.
Product Line Pricing
Pricing different products within the same product range at different price
points.
Example : An example would be a DVD manufacturer offering different DVD
recorders with different features at different prices e.g. A HD and non HD
version.. The greater the features and the benefit obtained the greater the
consumer will pay. This form of price discrimination assists the company in
maximising turnover and profits.
Bundle Pricing
The organisation bundles a group of products at a reduced price. Common
methods are buy one and get one free promotions or BOGOFs as they are
now known. Within the UK some firms are now moving into the realms of buy
one get two free can we call this BOGTF
Example : This strategy is very popular with supermarkets who often offer
BOGOF strategies.
Premium Pricing
The price is set high to indicate that the product is "exclusive“
Example : Examples of products and services using this strategy include
Harrods, first class airline services, and Porsche.
Optional Pricing
The organisation sells optional extras along with the product to maximise its
turnover.
Example : This strategy is used commonly within the car industry as I found
out when purchasing my car.
Cost Plus Pricing
The price of the product is production costs plus a set amount ("mark up")
based on how much profit (return) that the company wants to make.
Although this method ensures the price covers production costs it does not
take consumer demand or competitive pricing into account which could place
the company at a competitive disadvantage.
Example : For example a product may cost Rs100 to produce and as the firm
has decided that their profit will be twenty percent they decide to sell the
product for Rs120 i.e. Rs100 plus 100/100 x 20
Cost Based Pricing
This is similar to cost plus pricing in that it takes costs into account but it will
consider other factors such as market conditions when setting prices.
Example : Cost based pricing can be useful for firms that operate in an
industry where prices change regularly but still want to base their price on
costs.
Value Based Pricing
This pricing strategy considers the value of the product to consumers rather
than the how much it cost to produce it. Value is based on the benefits it
provides to the consumer e.g. convenience, well being, reputation or joy.
Example : Firms that produce technology, medicines, and beauty products are
likely to use this pricing strategy.
