  2. 2. Access it online: www.slideshare.net/talhasalam Understanding Pricing Price is the only revenue-producing “P”. Rest all are costs Historically: • Price was always set with negotiations. • Only in 19th century, one-price concept was introduced which we all use today (mostly) How Companies Price • Large Companies: Pricing is handled by Product Manager, Line Managers, Marketing team etc. • Small Companies: Top Management decides • Even in Large companies, price is based on some important objectives MG 220 Marketing Management 2

Access it online: www.slideshare.net/talhasalam Understanding Pricing Setting Pricing Strategy & Objectives requires understanding of Consumer Psychology Consumer Psychology & Pricing • Economists consider consumers to be ‘price-takers’ • IMP: Consumers have their own perceptions and purchasing decisions are based on their perception of a product’s stated and its stated price • Three important topics to be considered: – Reference Prices – Price-Quality Inferences – Price Endings (or Cues) MG 220 Marketing Management 3
  4. 4. Access it online: www.slideshare.net/talhasalam Understanding Pricing Consumer Psychology & Pricing • Reference Prices – Consumer’s own knowledge of prices – Generally a range and not exact number – Consumers compare observed prices with both internal and external reference prices – When these references are evoked: Unpleasant surprises (if ref. price is lower than observed) can impact more than pleasant surprises (if ref. price is higher than observed) • Price-Quality Inferences – Many consumers use price as an indicator of Quality – Example of Perfume: It may cost 20 Rs but selling it even for 40 will give signal of being a low quality product! – Price acts a signal of quality particularly when there is no other indicator or information about quality is available. • Price Cues – Many sellers believe price should end in an odd number – Also using 299 instead of 300 gives a different cue – Using “Sale” can also give a perception about price – But it should be used very carefully MG 220 Marketing Management 4
