Pricing and Promotions

Pricing and promotions are critical aspects of marketing that can significantly impact a brand’s sales and profitability. While promotions can drive short-term sales, they can also have a long-term effect on a brand’s health, particularly its brand equity. In-store promotions can be expensive and risky, and may not always attract the right target audience or generate the desired response. This is where implicit testing can be incredibly valuable.

Please see the end of this article for our short list of valuable research around the topic of pricing and promotions. 

Implicit Testing

Implicit testing involves measuring consumers’ unconscious, automatic responses to stimuli such as pricing and promotional offers. By testing the subconscious reactions of consumers, implicit testing can reveal insights that may not be apparent through traditional market research methods. It can help identify the most effective promotional and pricing strategies for your products and services while minimising the risk to your brand. It can also help you establish an acceptable range in the price consumers are willing to pay for a product or service and identify pricing strategies that are likely to be most effective in different market segments or geographies.

Predicting Why Consumers Buy: Evaluating 5 Key Approaches

Whether developing a new product or launching a new marketing campaign, understanding your customers’ true attitudes is crucial to brand management.

There are five recognised ways to measure attitudes in market research.
