PHASE 3: BUYERS

Understand the pricing implications of how buyers buy.

 

Intimately knowing your buyers needs and how they buy will allow you to capture more value from the market. Your ability to sell your solution at your desired price is highly dependent on how well your offering resonates with the buyers. Buyers have preferences for what they buy, the way they buy, and the way they pay. You must understand the wants and needs of your buyers so that you can best package and price your solutions.
