Digitization: Monetization & Transparency
July 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT
Digitization is transforming pricing strategy, opening up new opportunities companies to provide value and capture profits.
What has been lacking however is a framework and understanding to determine how best companies can avoid the hype and take advantage of such opportunities in a strategic way.
This session focuses on two areas of careful consideration: monetization and transparency.
Pricing models and monetization methods that were only available to select industries are increasingly options for companies to differentiate themselves and disrupt industries. Subscription, metered, individualized, and dynamic pricing models hold promise, but they are not one-size-fits-all.
Price transparency is related to, but different from, pricing transparency. Both types of transparency are often portrayed as good for customers and bad for companies, but many companies have found that strategically adjusting their level of transparency can lead to a better sales experience and more devoted customers.
This engaging session will feature case studies of companies managing these revolutions well–and those falling behind.
Attendees Will Learn:
* How to think creatively about matching value delivered with pricing models and structures
* How to utilize price transparency and pricing transparency to support strategic goals
