Thu, 05 Sep 2013 03:09:08 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8.7 Comment on Pricing, Markup, Margins and Mass Confusion by Lavenia Lord http://travi.st/2009/09/pricing-markup-margins-and-mass-confusion/#comment-15111 Thu, 05 Sep 2013 03:09:08 +0000 http://travi.st/?p=179#comment-15111 Thanks for all these information. I was trying to finish my Agriculture Marketing assignment and I could see that your explanation on the calculation of margins and pricing is very simple and easy to understand.
Please, only if you won’t mind me asking more questions later on.


Comment on The Incentive Behind Pricing by Travis Todd http://travi.st/2009/09/the-incentive-behind-pricing/#comment-12384 Thu, 02 May 2013 05:14:11 +0000 http://travi.st/?p=181#comment-12384 Thanks Travis! I didn’t ever do anything with that idea. The government regulation of the industry turned my interest.

Instead I co-founded this:


Would be happy to talk if you are still interested.

First off, nice name! I juat stumbled onto your site and more to the point, this article (and the last in this series). I was just wandering if you ever did anything about your ideas for business. Especially about the liquor industry. It’s been a few years since you wrote this so I’m either assuming you did it or moved on. I’m building a business plan at the moment for a liquor company and would like to just get in touch with you. If not that’s cool. Let me know

In both cases I feel as I could simply give a simple discount on the price instead of saying my price and than proposing a listing fee which is money the same.
I’d prefer where is possible to make demostrations for the clients: so it will consists in paying the retail shop’s owner for the disturb and invest some money in products to offer them to the clients in the shop.
What about it, any other ideas?

Comment on Pricing, Markup, Margins and Mass Confusion by francesco http://travi.st/2009/09/pricing-markup-margins-and-mass-confusion/#comment-11822 Wed, 06 Mar 2013 11:06:24 +0000 http://travi.st/?p=179#comment-11822 Can we say this system doesn’t match well for import-export products? I’m new in the business and I’m trying to export some food products from Italy and I’m often wondering what’s the retailer marging for similar products of mine to work backwards. Of course I’ve checked the final price in different stores, but I don’t think the retailers apply the ( adviced producer price ) on those products they sell.
Could i start calculating ( my cost x 7)? in order to suppose a potential final price we can find to the stores and than working backwards applying 35/40% of retailer marging and 25% of wholesaler margin to get in the end my own margin.
Hope in ur reply and compliments for the great information website, very helpful.
