Align your pricing model with the value your customers expect to gain from your products.


Choosing revenue models that align with buyer preferences will increase your ability to win. More than any other part of pricing, your revenue model is the way you communicate to your customers exactly what they are purchasing. And what they are purchasing should align to the way that they receive value from your product. Use an outward-in approach to define value from your customer’s point of view as opposed to an inward-out cost approach. Choosing a revenue model that is in alignment with customer value will expedite your sales significantly. Developing and innovative new revenue model will make you the industry disruptor.
