How to Make Your Prices (Almost) Irresistible?
Discover the Power of Psychological Pricing.
Prices are paid by customers. But many companies solely focus on their internal costs (mark-up pricing), their external competitors (competition-based pricing) or assume that people behave rationally (value-based pricing).
The Handbook on the Psychology of Pricing dives deep on a customer-centric approach. This book presents the most comprehensive collection of psychological pricing strategies and tactics currently available in the market and introduces you to intriguing, hard-to-believe insights into consumer psychology, subconscious persuasion and people's perception of prices.

* Understand how to raise attractiveness of your prices and offerings for your customers and lift sales and margins for your business.

* Boost your professional value by emerging yourself into a new and growing field of research: behavioral pricing.
