In Pricing, You Need To Keep Up With Best Practices

Ideally, you and your team will know everything they can about the myriad of issues and problems they’re facing…before attempting to address them. And certainly, you want your team to learn as much as they can about what really works and what doesn’t…before they reinvent the wheel or repeat costly mistakes.

But Who Really Has The Time…Or Opportunity?

  • …to conduct in-depth research on all the various issues and problems that might come up?
  • …to click on tons of search engine results to find a few tips that might actually help?
  • …to wade through academic research to identify the handful of tactics that could be relevant?
  • …to interact with pricing experts to hear the dirty truth about making pricing strategies work?
  • …to get other practitioners to share the lessons learned that they keep close to their vest?

Well…That’s Our Business…Our Team Does The Research So You Don’t Have To

At PricingBrew, it’s our business to explore issues and problems that most B2B pricing teams will inevitably have to deal with. It’s our business to stay on top of new developments and innovations in the pricing space. And it’s our business to get beyond the academic theories and find out what really works…and what doesn’t.

  • Our research team gathers proven practices and lessons-learned from practitioners and industry experts all over the globe–through telephone interviews, email exchanges, questionnaires, surveys, and curated content. We pull together the real-world experiences and practical know-how of people who are working in the trenches, dealing with these critical issues on a daily basis, and being held accountable for the success or failure of their decisions.
  • Then, we distill the information down to the essentials leaving out the fluff and filler to synthesize the most useful information. We identify the shared themes and practices across various industries. We determine the common problems and pitfalls to be avoided along the way. And, as former practitioners ourselves, we assess every concept, practice, and technique for relevance and practicality in a typical B2B environment.
  • Finally, we publish these concise nuggets of wisdom and insight to the PricingBrew Journal’s ever-expanding library of hundreds of tutorials, express guides, case studies, research reports, worksheets, tools, and diagnostics—all accessible online, 24×7, from any computer or mobile device.
