ghapter 7 Print It Real Price is the amount of money charged for a product or service It is the sum of all the values that customers give up to gain the bene ts of having or using a product or service Why is Price important Only element in marketing mix that produces revenue One of the most exible marketing mix elements One of the most in uential element affecting consumer decision making Direct impact on rm39s bottom line Factor In uencing Pricing hje iues Factors Affecting Pricing Decisions Chim i attract new customers or retain existing ones it can set prices low to prevent competition from entering the market or set prices at competitor39s level to stabilize the market prices can be reduced temporarily to create excitement for a brand or priced to help the sales of other products in the company39s line INTERNA EXPLANATION EXAMPLES L FACTORS Achieving Pricing plays an important role When Xiaomi company39 in helping to accomplish launched their 5 company objectives at many smart phones in objective levels A rm can set prices to the Southeast Asia market it relies heavily on limited time sales to create buzz around its brand and attract new customers in the midst of erce competition between the bigger brands such as Apple Alignment of price to overall marketing strategy Alignment of overall marketing strategy to price EXTE RNA L FACTORS The market and demand Price is only one element of the company39s broader marketing strategy Thus before setting price the company must decide on its overall marketing strategy for the product or services For example if target market and positioning is set then its marketing mix strategy including price will be fairly straightforward Price is this case is a crucial productpositioning factor that de nes the product39s market competition and design Instead of rst determining its cost and ends with a selling price a company starts with an ideal selling price based on customer value consideration and then focus on keeping cost within the price range EXPLANATION The number of competitors in the market sometimes determines how sensitive the sellers are to each other s pricing and marketing strategies When there are few sellers each seller is alert and responsive to competitors39 pricing strategies and moves The price that a seller can charge also depends on how sensitive the demand is to price changes The degree price sensitivity depends on many factors such as availability of substitutes whether it is a need and Samsung Honda positioned its quotAcuraquot brand as premium to compete with European cars in the higher income segment and therefore requires charging a high price When Honda set out to design the Fit it began with a 13950 starting price point and an operating ef ciency of 33 miles per gallon rmly in mind It then designed a stylish car with costs that allowed it to give target customers those values EXAMPLES Singtel Starhub and M1 are more sensitive to each other s marketing strategies compared to Laptop companies such as Lenovo Acer etc The demand for products with a number of substitutes such as avoured or want etc drinks is also more price sensitive compared to products with little or no substitute The Economic conditions can have a In the aftermath economy strong impact on the firm39s of the 2007 Asia pricing strategies Economic Financial Crisis factors such as a boom or many recession in ation and interest consumers have rates affect pricing decisions tightened their because they affect consumer belts and spending consumer perceptions become more of the product s price and value value conscious and the company39s costs of As a result producing and selling a product many marketers increased their emphasis on value for money pricing strategies Other A company

Reference Pricing Buyers make decision based on selling price comparisons and if the reference price is in ated or is just plain ctitious it will do harm to consumers Eg Real estate agents in ating the selling price of and discount for new condominium units 2 Bait and Switch 0 The tactic is deceptive because sellers advertise items for a very low price without the intent to really sell any Eg Retailers at Sim Lim Square advertise electronic products at low price but always out of stocks 3 Predatory Pricing The aim is to keep the price low until the competition have been driven out of business after which the prices are increased o If prices set are below cost this can be illegal in some countries Eg Singtel offering hand phone on contract at low or zero cost when M1 entered the market 4 Price Discrimination Selling the same product to different consumers at different prices based on different time season location perceived consumer wealth etc Eg Restaurant having different menus for locals and tourists 5 Price Fixing Practice of colluding with other rms to control price 0 Companies aim to avoid price competition and set a price which is more favorable towards pro t maximisation Eg Oil cartel formed by oil producing nations in the 805 to control price of oil Practice Questions 1 Many customers use price as an indicator of quality If Nike wants to maintain its
