Often, the misconceived thought on price setting is, sales volume is directly proportional to profit. An increase in sales volume is expected to increase a company's profit. There are different strategies one can depend on in the process of price setting. A few significant factors are given below. 

Penetration & psychological pricing strategies

In order to gain a great market share, many companies embrace the penetration pricing strategy. The company aims to set up a customer-based price in the market. This is primarily achieved by providing a free to low price for their products or services to a limited period of time. This later on, with a revised version comes into the market as a premium product with a little raise in the price. This strategy is implied to meet the expectation that consumers will hop on to new brands when they're priced low. On the other hand, a psychological pricing strategy is a method that embraces a consumer's emotional response rather than considering their rational one. Here consumer ignores the quality of a service/ product but sticks on to the costing price.

Product line & economy pricing strategies

The product line pricing strategy is nothing but, providing service with an option to upgrade upon choosing higher value packs. Consumers are pushed to compare the packages and choose a wise plus cost-effective product or service. The other purpose of the product line strategy is to bring a product or service to the spotlight which had low visibility or recognition earlier. Whereas, economy pricing strategy embraces no to the low marketing cost in product or service promotion. It's more like the budget pricing of a product or service. A great example would be promoting only a certain range of products or services that shall gain specific and quick attention among people. 

Customer value-based pricing strategy

This is the most effective method that is followed by many successful companies. Value-based pricing is a nothing but, price setting strategy that exclusively focuses on consumer perceived value of a service or product. This is entirely based on how consumers value the product or service and how they find it worth buying. Many companies that offer unique and high-value products choose this strategy in setting the price. The value-based pricing embraces customer's abilities to buy a product by considering the unparalleled experience upon buying a particular service or a product.
