9780061684326: The 1% Windfall: How Successful Companies Use Price to Profit and Grow

In "The Art of Pricing", Rafi Mohammed gave readers advice on setting prices. In this essential follow up, he takes them to the next level, teaching them how to use price as a competitive strategy. A study of the Global 1200 found that if companies increased prices by just 1 percent, their average operating profits would increase by 11 percent. Using small incremental changes in price, Fortune 200 companies would see enormous growth in percentage of profit: Amazon, 40 percent; Aramark, 30 percent; Archer Daniels Midland, 19 percent; AMR, 68 percent; Boeing, 19 percent; Ingram Micro, 83 percent; McKesson, 82 percent; Wal Mart, 22 percent. Unfortunately, most companies have no clue how to capitalise on the direct link between pricing and profits. But how do executives and managers set the right price? Underpinned by sound empirical research and real-life anecdotes "The 1% Windfall" addresses this fundamental question, offering guidelines any company-whether a multi-national conglomerate, a small business, or even a non-profit can follow to create a comprehensive pricing strategy for any product and service. In addition, these techniques and tools apply equally to offensive and defensive solutions whether a company wants to keep ahead of the competition, avert a slump in a recession, or offset the impact of inflation.

Product Description:

“This breakthrough ‘how to’ book offers a practical and comprehensive framework that shows companies how to use price to drive profits from diverse customer segments in offensive and defensive (recession, inflation, and new competitor) situations.” — Richard Spaulding, Member of the Board of Directors, Scholastic Corporation

Rafi Mohammed, author of The Art of Pricing, shows businesses how to reap financial windfalls and sustain growth using the underexploited and often overlooked strategy of setting prices.

Review:

“The Art of Pricing is an entertaining primer on how to unlock ‘hidden profits’ and growth by aligning your product’s price with the value customers place on it.” (BusinessWeek SmallBiz)

“A valuable insight into the strategic importance of pricing.” (Peter W. Olson, Senior Lecturer - Harvard Business School and former Chairman and CEO of Random House)

“This breakthrough “how to” book offers a practical and comprehensive framework that shows companies how to use price to drive profits from diverse customer segments in offensive and defensive (recession, inflation, and new competitor) situations.” (Richard Spaulding, Member of the Board of Directors, Scholastic Corporation)

“Pricing volatility will likely be the greatest challenge management will face in the next decade. Rafi Mohammed provides pricing guidance that equips readers to successfully navigate and profit in these uncertain times.” (George Stalk, Senior Advisor and Fellow, The Boston Consulting Group)

“Rafi Mohammed uses insightful real-world examples to show how small changes in a company’s pricing tactics can lead to big profits. You will profit from this book - and enjoy every minute reading it!” (Michael R. Baye, Bert Elwert Professor of Business Economics at Indiana University & former Director of the Bureau of Economics at the FTC)

“This is a rich resource for not-for-profits. Rafi Mohammed shows how smart pricing tactics can distribute educational and cultural benefits as widely as possible, yet still balance the books. It will change the way you think about pricing.” (Joseph C. Thompson, Director, MASS MoCA)

“Pricing consultant Mohammed highlights ideas and tactics that build a foundation to create a pricing strategy for every global company, answering the question, ‘How would a 1% increase in price affect operating profits?’ This is an excellent book.” (Booklist)

“The book offers practical guidelines that any sized company can follow to create a comprehensive pricing plan and increase profits without sacrificing customer loyalty. It’s a tricky equation, but Mohammed offers a strategic solution.” (Consulting Magazine)
