Internet Marketing – Your clients aren’t price sensitive – 3

Mark Wickersham (UK):
Debunking the myth of price sensitivity
One of the big myths I hear over and
over again – and one of the main things
holding us back with our pricing – is
that our clients are price sensitive.
Price is only part of the equation
What this shows is that most people
aren’t price sensitive.
They’re value sensitive.
These are two very different
things, and once we understand that
everything changes.
The reason many accountants think their
clients are price sensitive – and
perhaps you’ve experienced this – is
that they’ve had a situation at some
point where they revealed a price and
their client says,
“Oh dear, it’s a bit
more expensive than I was expecting.”
But they don’t say it to you because
they’re price sensitive.
The reason they say it is because
they don’t understand the value.
And that’s your fault, not theirs.
We have to be better
at explaining value.
To go back to
price sensitivity versus value
Most people in society –
about 80%, and certainly all of your
clients – are value sensitive.
They want the biggest profit
on the deal.
And price is only one part of the
Price – or value?
What people want is as much value
profit as possible.
The trouble is,because we think
clients are price sensitive,
we focus on price.
We try to be competitive
– i.e. cheaper – than
the firm down the road.
That’s crazy.
We have to start focusing on value.
