I have to admit, I am not a particularly numerate person and I have struggled with the financial aspects of running a business for many years. This wonderful book has changed all of that. Not only do I now have a clear view of how pricing fits in to my sales and marketing activity so I understand where I've been going wrong; I also now have a simple, step-by-step plan of action for putting it all right! I have never been so excited about sorting out my financials.
What the author does so beautifully is explain everything in clear, simple, jargon-free language, without being at all condescending. I came away feeling like the pricing penny had finally dropped and super inspired to make the necessary changes in my business.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough to anyone who is self-employed or runs any sort of company. It's brilliant.
Written in simple English, Peter Hill delivers his message in a clear and concise way that makes you think about the fundamentals of pricing, and more importantly its impact on the bottom line and ultimately the profitability of your business.
The book has challenged me and caused me to question my own pricing strategy within my business. More importantly it has shifted some of my focus away from my competitors. Peter's view is that we need to "tip the value scales" and understand your own pricing strategy as well as your competitors! For far too long, I have been worried about the competition and what they are charging. Sound familiar?
We think we know about pricing, but do you or your staff realise the impact discounting has? I never considered this before! Have you?
There is some sound advice in this book and for me it's a good read and great value. Well done Peter Hill.
The author uses case studies which he has been directly involved in to make his points and as such this is a useful tool in the product pricing element of any business.
It flows well and is an easy read.
I have already used many of the suggested methods to great effect.
Thoroughly worth reading and retaining as a reference document.
The first thing that strikes you is the warm, friendly tone of voice... this man is an accountant that actually speaks in plain English! But it's not just that... although his opinions are strong they are backed up with experience and examples, rather than waffly academic theories and models. He doesn't just tell you what to do but takes the time to explain why... so that, at every stage, you're nodding away, genuinely understanding how this is relevant to your business.
As one would expect, each chapter ends with handy action points and QR codes, linking to downloads from his website. Key points are hammered home with pull-out boxes, exclaiming `ouch' in the same way that Homer Simpson goes `doh' at the point of realisation that something has gone wrong. And, crucially, the book itself ends with a whole chapter dedicated to `42 action points' you really have zero excuse for not working your way through, right away. This book may be about pricing but it is far from being about navel-gazing and theory. It is utterly and completely grounded in relevant common sense and action.
If you're sitting on the fence... get off it... how wrong you would be to pass this book by. It might just be the one read this year that makes an impact on your business's bottom line. I urge you to read it. Now.
