This one is the King of Spades from the Selling Value card deck.
It’s true, value-based pricing is the most profitable pricing strategy you can adopt. If you think about it, the definition of value-based pricing is charge what your customers are willing to pay. Now, that seems pretty simple, but if you knew exactly how much your customers were willing to pay, and you charged that amount, then you can’t possibly make more money.
If you charge less than that amount, you end up leaving money on the table. If you charge more than that amount, your buyer doesn’t buy.
So, by definition, value-based pricing is the most profitable pricing strategy you can adopt. However, it’s impossible to do perfectly because there’s no way that you know how much somebody is willing to pay for your product. We can’t read our customer’s minds.
“By definition, value-based pricing is the most profitable pricing strategy you can adopt.”

What we can do though, is adopt this as a strategy, an attitude, a goal, and continue to do things so that we can learn more and more about our markets and our customer’s willingness to pay and get to the point where we’re capturing more of it each time.
We hope you enjoyed this memecast. This is also an example of how Pricing Table Topics works. Grab a deck of our cards, pull a random card, read the saying, and then talk for one to two minutes about what that card says. This will improve your understanding and more importantly, your ability to communicate important concepts about value.
