Product Life Cycle IntroductionPrice lower GrowthPrice reaches zenith MaturityProfit maximized Sales Crest DeclinePrice & Sales both drop
Competitive Pricing Pricing Objectives Achieve largest return on investment The Profit Motive Building Traffic Achieve greater market share Create an image Furthering social objectives
3 major approaches to pricing Cost-based Pricing Demand-based Pricing Competition-based Pricing Price Leadership Low Price
Break Even Analysis Break-Even Point (BEP) = revenues & cost are equal BEP = Total Fixed Cost (TFC). Price of a unit – Variable Cost of a unit (P) (VC) BEP = TFC/(P – VC)
Other Pricing Strategies Skimming Price Strategy Every day low prices = EDLP High-low pricing strategy = higher prices than EDLP store with many special sales; internet sales may reduce the frequency of this strategy Bundling Psychological Pricing: Why set a price of $19.99 or $199.99?
Demand-Oriented Pricing Compared with Demand-based Pricing (DBP) DBP is also called Target Costing Price is an input for production and the target cost + profit margin = DBP Demand oriented pricing (DOP) is reflected in theater seat prices, where highly desire seats cost more than less desirable one.
Nonprice Competition Attributes other than price features convenience service durability style Remaining competitive does always mean meeting or beating the price at Walmart. Why is Nordstrom’s successful?
Marketing Intermediaries Middlemen Do they increase or lower the cost of business? A Channel of Distribution = a set of intermediaries: agents/brokers/wholesalers/retailers Agent/Broker = bring buyers & seller together a Broker may manage many agents or just (him/her)self Wholesaler = sells to other firms; B2B Retailer = sells to consumers (people)
Why do we need Middlemen? Middlemen can do things faster, at lower cost & give the producer more time to concentrate on what they do best. Storage Transport Advertising Selling Relationship building
5 Sellers & 5 Buyers How many contact need to be made? Seller Buyer
Using middlemen: 5 Seller & 5 Buyers One Middleman Seller Buyers
Value versus Cost If middlemen save time and/or money for a product heading to market, it make sense to use them. If about half the cost of a product goes to middlemen, then getting rid of middlemen would reduce the price of goods & services… RIGHT?! Wrong!!! It would reduce product availablitiy & increase costs & prices!!!
Six Utilities of Intermediaries (middlemen) Formturning wheat into flour Timeget it when you want it Placelocal outlets Possessiontransfer ownership/credit installation/follow-up InformationConsumer Reports, BBB internet ServicesEducation on use, repair
Wholesale – B2B Merchant Wholesalers: take possession of goods they handle Rack Jobbers: keep title until good is sold Cash-and-carry Wholesalers: now use credit too Drop Shippers: have product shipped directly from maker to buyer
Agents & Brokers Arrange transfer of possession without taking possession of a product. Wholesalers make profit from sale of products, but agents & brokers make commissions that are a percentage of the sales revenue.

Logistics Shipping or Physical Distribution Speed of delivery Cost effective Taxes, Tariffs & Duties Labor Law FDA & Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms
Inbound or Outbound Logistics Control of the physical flow of materials involves planning, implementing, moving Inbound: raw material, packaging, G & S from suppliers to producers & information Outbound: finished products Reverse Logistics: Return of defective or recycled products
Choosing the right mode Train: Great for large shipments on land 30-40% of volume in USA Trucks: Good for smaller shipments or where rail is not available; >25% of volume in USA Water: Inexpensive, but slower Pipelines: Fast & Efficient for fluids Air: Fast, but expensive Intermodal Shipping: use two or more of the above
Storage Storage Warehouses: Longer term holding of goods Distribution Warehouses: gather & redistribute products Tracking of Goods: RFID (radio frequency ID) & UPS (uses a Bluetooth short-range radio)
What it all means 10am-7pm A successful firm has product to sell, it takes orders, processes the orders, keeps customers informed about a shipment’s progress and gets the right goods to their customers as quickly as possible. There are many new jobs in this area of managent.

Sampling & Word of Mouth How can the taste of chocolate fudge brownies be described for someone unfamiliar with the taste of chocolate (or fudge). Sampling is the easiest remedy. The best advertising is done by satisfied customers (Word of Mouth) and it’s free.
Viral Marketing Internet chat rooms entered and hype for a product released. Chat room visitors spread the word to their friends and other chat rooms they visit. Blogging (blog is short for Web log) Podcasting: distributing audio & video vai the internet
Who is watching you on the internet? Firms keep track of the number of hits on product websites & even monitor the tastes of individual web users. Then using this information they design advertising just for your kind of consumer. You may sit alone at your computer, but someone will notice where you go on the internet.
Matching market with promotion Push Strategy: push the product to vendors & sellers, people will see it in store/outlets & buy Pull Strategy: promotion directed toward consumers, they ask for the product & stores start stocking the product
