My website is in the SaaS field; so I feel that price is more important to customers than in other industries, especially since through my survey responses everyone has been saying to lower my pricing. How important is being in a similar "pricing range" as your competitors in a SaaS business?
If you can win a customer on price, you can lose a customer on price. But its not price, that customers are sensitive to...its value. To answer your question, its important to be in a similar pricing range to your competition if you want to play the pricing game and commoditize your product. But I would argue that the reason you customers care so much about price is because you are not giving them anything else to care about. What do customers value most, communicate that to them, desensitise them to price and sensitise them to value. More than happy to discuss this with you further...Jon
