Description of Premium Pricing

This pricing strategy takes advantage of the assumption that expensive means extraordinary, more dependable, best quality, etc., which is what consumers tend to do. Additionally, they don’t mind spending a little more for things that are “in”, which is what drives premium pricing.

Advantages of Premium Pricing

When a business puts in a lot of money into their premium brands, it could be really difficult for a rival to have an item that could compete at that exact price but by not putting in as much money into marketing. Also, typically, there’s a very high gross margin.

This strategy also doesn’t let you increase your amount of sales. Additionally, you won’t ever be able to make the cost reductions that a company that has lots of sales can make.
