Bullet-Proof Your Price Increase With Sales

With Chris Mitchell, VP of Global Initiatives, and Alison Yama, Senior Dir. of Holden Advisors

Pricing technology makes implementing the mechanical aspects of price increases an easy task. The real challenge most organizations face is not "getting to a number," but rather developing an effective communications plan and a sound value rationale that the sales force can embrace with confidence and that aligns the organization around targeted price increase. Any inconsistencies in logic, messaging, or the responses of executives, sales, and customer service staff will immediately be exploited by hard-negotiating customers fighting to roll back the pricing increase. Attendee Takeaway:
  • How to develop credible tools and training for all customer-facing staff to lead and defend price increase
  • How to create an effective communications plan with rationale for leading a price increase
  • How to use formal and informal communication channels to build momentum
  • How to prepare for difficult conversations with customers that challenge the price increase
