When it comes to the 4 Ps of marketing, marketers are quick to focus on product, place (distribution) and promotion, but most overlook the most powerful lever to maximizing revenue – pricing. While pricing may not be the path of least resistance in your marketing toolkit, taking the time to optimize your overall pricing strategy including shoring up discounts and improving packaging, can pay significant dividends for both your bottom line and understanding your buyer infinitely better. Jeanne Hopkins discusses the importance of marketing owning pricing as a powerful tool for profit.
