How to Optimally Price your Products Online?
Do you often look at a product’s price first while browsing through different shopping sites? It’s a normal consumer behavior. Price is an important factor which drives customer’s purchase decisions. Does that mean you should set the lowest price for your products, as compared to your competitors? Or else what should you do?
As marketers and business owners, we often deal with difficulties in pricing our products or services. Revenue rich and profit poor, that’s the case with many D2C fashion brands online these days. Reason being, simply opting for a competitive pricing, i.e., pricing products online way below their competitors to attract more sales. Sacrificing on their margins, they end up getting a negative or negligible ROI. The key to maintain a robust ROI lies in correctly pricing a product. And this is where many D2C fashion brands struggle.
Focus on value creation:
As per a study conducted by The University of Texas, consumers associate price with quality. Which means that if a product is priced highly, it is perceived to be of high quality, and vice versa. But as a seller / marketer, you need to highlight the value your product holds, or the USPs. For example, if you’re an apparel brand, highlight the quality of fabrics used, sustainability, certificates your brand holds, etc. and then decide the prices.
Take expert consultation:
It’s not always easy to identify the right pricing strategy that allows brands to both define an appealing price point and remain profitable too, or to highlight the product’s unique value proposition in every marketing campaign. That’s why it’s crucial for D2C brands online to look at all options and find out what can possibly be the best for them.
