David delivered an online interactive workshop that explored various aspects of How To Negotiate Higher Prices For Your Products workshop in partnership with Spark Ideas.
The three-hour workshop provided an opportunity to consider pricing policies from three different perspectives: calculating all costs to ensure breakeven or profit; the effect of pricing on customer perceptions; and options for selling or licensing your intellectual property.
By the end of the workshop, participants had considered:
· Pricing in relation to costs and profits. The economics of pricing, including calculating minimum prices to break even and making allowance for distribution channels.
· Pricing, perceptions and market positioning. How pricing affects customers’ perceptions of you and your products in relation to other products and producers.
· Pricing the options and ‘bundle of benefits’. How pricing relates to what exactly is being sold, including aspects of selling and licensing intellectual property.
