Strategic Pricing – Webinar
August 21, 2020 @ 09:00 - 12:00 CDT
This a virtual instructor led webinar and will be on the Zoom platform. You must have a Zoom account in order to enter this webinar.
Pricing is the fastest and most effective way for companies to increase profitability. Studies show that a 1% increase in pricing has a greater positive impact on profitability than does a 1% increase in sales volume or a 1% decrease in costs. Unfortunately, too many companies do not think tactically about pricing and do not effectively price for profitability. This workshop is designed to help small business owners and managers to understand common mistakes that companies make in pricing and learn best pricing practices that will enable them to maximize company profitability.
This class is taught by a University of Texas Instructor and counts toward the 6-course requirement needed to earn your Business Skills Certification.
