How do you know your price is too high?

Biznology

This is a disappointing turn of events for sure, but I wasn’t prepared for the idea that was floated next: let’s cut the price of the product 40%. See, the problem here is that we have no evidence that price is the problem. If any of these are the real problem, lowering the price will have no positive effect, because price isn’t the problem.

SAS by the Sip: SAS Viya Offers Open APIs to Individual Services in the Cloud

Customer Experience Matrix

But the triumph of SAS’s pricing approach has been accompanied by new challenges to SAS’s business. Subscription pricing notwithstanding, SAS has largely sold its software for on-premise operation by its clients and required them to purchase a large stack of core technologies. This greatly reduces implementation effort and allows volume-based pricing, both of which lower entry costs to the client. The new SaaS software has also been relatively easy to integrate with other systems through open APIs and standard scripting languages such as Python.

Infusionsoft: Impressive Marketing Power for a Very Low Price

Customer Experience Matrix

But most of us still assume there is a reasonable relationship between price and value. This is why it’s hard to imagine that low-priced software can deliver similar performance to mainstream products. If you really wanted it, the system does provide an API that would let someone with the right skills set it up. The company also has excellent online documentation and an active user forum for questions and answers.) On the other hand, Infusionsoft actually does a better job than some demand generation systems of tracking marketing costs. Other prices were unchanged.]

Bislr: A "Marketing Operating System" That Includes Marketing Automation As An App

Customer Experience Matrix

There was a really interesting discussion this week over on Scott Brinker’s ChiefMartec blog about the evolution of marketing automation systems into “platforms” that each support a swarm of satellite applications connected through open APIs. Part of this had to do with the scope of the integration available (that is, which functions are accessible via the API). But I digress.

More New Systems Challenge the Marketing Automation Status Quo

Customer Experience Matrix

They shared a similar approach of offering limited features in exchange for lower cost: messaging was largely limited to emails (except in Salesformics ) and campaign flows were basically linear. The general notion is that small businesses are finding existing marketing automation products too hard to use and would be happy with something simpler, especially if it costs less.

BlueConic Selects Targeted Messages Using a Cross-Channel Marketing Database

Marketo Spark Targets Small Business Marketing Automation

Customer Experience Matrix

Exceptions are advanced features including revenue cycle reporting, email deliverability assistance, API access, fine-grained user rights management, and the Sales Insight salesperson application. So the news here is price. In other words, this is a price cut. To me, it looks like a reaction to the success of other low cost small business systems, including HubSpot , Act-On Software , and Pardot. HubSpot and Act-On have similar pricing to Spark, while Pardot runs a bit higher. Whether Marketo actually makes any money at this price is questionable.

Model Factory from Modern Analytics Offers High Scale Preditive Modeling for Marketers

Customer Experience Matrix

You heard that right: an all-you-can eat, fixed-price buffet for predictive models. Model Factory is targeted at firms whose large needs can’t be met at an acceptable cost by traditional modeling technologies. Better still, Modern Analytics has experience connecting to APIs of common data sources such as Salesforce.com , so a new feed from a familiar source usually takes just a few hours to set up. Scores from passing models are pushed to client systems in files, API calls, or whatever else has been set up during implementation. The "how" is more complicated.

Marketo Conference: Small Changes, Big Picture

Customer Experience Matrix

The appeal of the platform model is obvious: platform systems are quasi-monopolies (or actual monopolies), so their owners can charge high prices while the app developers compete brutally with each other and must keep prices low.

Pricing is also non-trivial: a small company will pay in the five figures for a year’s service and a large company's bill could reach into seven figures. Datorama is one of them.

Do you need accurate sentiment for social media listening?

Biznology

If you weren’t willing to pay for a social media monitoring platform, then you wouldn’t get one, but HootSuite and other low-cost and no-cost competitors have jumped into the market. All these low-cost vendors have a problem, however. This race to the pricing bottom leads them to remove costs to lower price, which means that they can’t afford such fancy add-ons as sentiment analysis. But if all the monitoring platforms are cutting features to cut costs, how can those customers be satisfied? Photo credit: Wikipedia.
