Solution...???

kya discuss karna he ais me

 

Idea Solution don't copy and paste it

  • Reduction in current price does increase sales and no of customers, but it may or may not increase profitability. This also would depend on the product category. In case of technology and IP products this relationship may not work. It is good to do benchmarking to establish influx points to understand this relationship better.
  • In Telecom, we found that in Pakistan customers were paying higher than most developed and underdeveloped countries as a percentage of GDP or other spends. Here it made sense to bring down the price from Rs 6 to Re 1, and the rest is history. Currently the 1 paisa per second may not make sense depending on the Regulatory pay outs and termination charges.
  • It may still make some sense if the customer base is large and the on net traffic is large in terms of percentage of usage. However one must be ready to let the margins move south.
  • The pricing of a product totally depends on the kind of product and the target audience. If the product is a premium product then if the price is reduced for the product than the customer will look it as a cheap and low quality, thus not helping in increase in sale. If the price is reduced and the other competitors are pricing it as high the end customer will have questions about the credibility of the product. Hence one has to be careful while taking pricing decisions.
  • Wrong pricing can hamper the brand image which can hit badly. Hence if the price has to be reduced one has to first ensure that customer is convinced there is no deterioration in quality of the product.

Wrong pricing can hamper the brand image which can hit badly. Hence if the price has to be reduced one has to first ensure that customer is convinced there is no deterioration in quality of the product. 

The object of increasing the quality can be increased by reducing the cost. A cost model should be implemented which tracks the actual cost incurred for each and every activity. Overhead costs for the sale of the product would be eating lots of profits; expenses on the promotion which does not have the desired effect should be avoided. 

Now some other methods of increasing the sales can be by giving promotional offers like "buy 3 and get "1 free. This product can be sold as a complimentary with some other product. There are many other ways to increase the sales of the product which are better than reducing the pricing of the product strategy.
