Statistic Info

Pricing is the most important lever in your business. True, we’re a bit biased given we work with pricing all day, every day. However, think about the fact that everything you do in your business, from sales and marketing to your product and support, works to drive people to your pricing page, convert them, and keep them around as loyal customers.

Yet, we’ve found that companies only spend 6 hours on their pricing strategy in the entire history of their business. Not six hours a year. Not six hours a quarter. Six hours total. That’s kind of like trying to power a jet with a steam engine.
