The Sage Course Companion on Marketing is an accessible introduction to the subject that will help readers to extend their understanding of key concepts and enhance their thinking skills in line with course requirements. It provides support on how to revise for exams and prepare for and write assessed pieces. Readers are encouraged not only to think like a marketer but also to think about the subject critically. It is much more than a revision guide for undergraduates; it is an essential tool that will help readers take their course understanding to new levels and help them achieve success in their undergraduate course.
Demand pricing is the most customer-orientated form of pricing since it derives entirely from consumer demand. The marketer begins by assessing what the demand will be for the product at different price levels. This is a job for market researchers, who will find out what customers might expect to pay for the product. Different people have different views on what represents value for money, and will have different perceptions about the price: therefore there will be a spread of responses. This will lead to the development of the kind of chart shown in Table 2.2.
