Growing Revenue: Five Alternatives to Discounting

Read about the discounting alternatives that B2B and B2C product and service companies can apply to preserve (even grow) revenue.

Discounting may be an effective element of a company’s larger strategy. It may be used as a loss leader, with the objective of gaining greater revenue from ongoing customer relationships and sales. Some companies use discounting as a loyalty reward.

However, when discounting is the go-to tactic, to prompt every transaction or to get every contract signed for example, then companies can unintentionally enter a race to the bottom.

And there are other corrosive effects that can increasingly make price the most singularly important factor in customers’ purchase decisions. Price can then overshadow the value of your B2B or B2C product or service. That only accelerates the race to the bottom.
