Product Pricing and Sales Negotiation Certification
Setting the correct pricing can result in a host of important business implications. Evaluating the pricing for your product is not only important from the point of view of profits, but also with how it fits in with your marketing strategies. Charging a fair price for your product or service involves evaluating perceptions and understanding the market. Several factors play a role in deciding the pricing of your product including competitors’ rates, your experience and brand name, value perceptions and negotiated rate and so on.
