Newton, Twenty Dollars, Three Hundred Dollars discussed on Marketing Trends


If you have an oversupply of this product. How do you adjust the pricing to sort of maximize it. It's even more interesting cresting if that product is going bad like it's flowers right so you can't just leave it in a warehouse somewhere so a lot of companies that you don't think of as marketplace companies actually have a lot of those same dynamics mix but the marketers don't always think of that way. They're just like okay. I'm just focused on demand. They're not always looking back at like. Wait a second.

You can get your average up to twenty. But how much did you pay for those additional customers that that you got from moving from fifteen to twenty dollars because now you paid more acquisition costs for everyone and was turning out that you know a new customer is worth in this example twenty dollars and we're you're paying like three hundred dollars per incremental customer 'cause we were based on the average and not really realizing that by paying more. We weren't getting that much more but we were paying a ton more for everything we would've gotten already knew revolutionary time now. It's kind of obvious hey you know we stand on <unk>.
