Consider what products the penetration-price strategy and the price-skimming strategy work for. What are the advantages and disadvantages of these strategies?
Analyze the role pricing plays in strategic marketing.
Discuss with your family and friends what you have learned about pricing. Ask them how they respond to odd-even pricing, prestige pricing, and artificial time constraints. Note generational differences and possibly how family traditions can skew the answers.
