Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
Pricing the product or service is a key step in running a startup.
There are four pricing strategies to choose from:
- Premium pricing is a price at the upper end of the scale and is used to attract higher-end users. The profit margins are greater here.
- Low-cost pricing is a price at the lower end of the scale and is used to attract customers in volume. This gives you the greatest market size to sell to.
- Skimming pricing is setting the price high at the beginning and then gradually lowering the price to capture new customers who could not afford the original price.
- Penetration pricing is setting the price below cost to obtain market share.
Once you’ve chosen your pricing strategy, you then set the specific price with one of the following:
- Cost-plus pricing is setting the price as a calculation of the cost of making and delivering the product plus a margin.
- Value-based pricing is setting the price based on what value the customer perceives it brings regardless of the cost to build.
- Dynamic pricing is setting the price based on how much or how often the customer uses the product.
- Loss-leader pricing is setting the lead product price low to attract customers and set follow-on product prices high to capture the margin.
Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.
