Willingness-to-Pay Insights and Marketing Budgets

Posted by PriceBeam on October 30, 2017

In many organizations this is the time of the year for making marketing budgets. Marketing teams build plans for the coming year and petition various stakeholders for (additional) funds.

Willingness-to-pay research can be very useful to plan and defend marketing budgets, and the starting point can be something as straightforward as this:

If a product has a current price that is higher than the value customers put on it (i.e. their willingness to pay), then that product is over-priced. Similarly, if the current price is lower than what customers are willing to pay, then it is under-priced.

Willingness-to-pay insights can easily and rapidly be identified using PriceBeam's solutions.

Why Marketing Should Spend More Time on Pricing

Posted by PriceBeam on October 26, 2017

Even before Philip Kotler wrote his famous book about the 4P's in marketing, pricing was very important to marketers.

Therefore, Marketing should also be very much involved in pricing.

Posted by PriceBeam on March 2, 2017


Several studies have found that women are generally charged more than men for gender-targeted products such as clothing, toiletries and accessories. At a well-known UK clothing retailer, a basic white t-shirt for women costs £12 while it’s just £8 for men, a women’s haircut often costs twice the price of a men’s haircut, and a bottle of shampoo for women is typically much more expensive than a men’s shampoo.

Price Positioning: Long-Term Effects of Short-Term Strategies

Posted by PriceBeam on February 24, 2017



In a previous article, we argued that you shouldn’t be looking to your competitors when setting your price. While this is true, knowing how your product or service is positioned in the mind of your customer will help you understand how you stand out from your competitors. And if you find your product is positioned pretty similar to a competitor, you can use price positioning as a tool to build a strong USP (Unique Selling Proposition) by setting a new price that is relatively higher or lower than your competitors’.

Your Marketing Message: Words Matter - Change 1 and make 5x more!

Posted by PriceBeam on February 22, 2017

The wording of your marketing message can be incredibly important for your pricing. Here in the US, owners or executives in many small firms have retained companies that oversee their personal pension plans. There are many of these companies, and together they consist of an industry that is called Third Party Administrators, or TPAs.

But since doing so requires substantial expertise, using a TPA is often a better choice.
