The easiest way to do this is to offer a good, high-quality product or service. Your product quality goes hand-in-hand with your price point – make sure you’re selling your product or service for a price that your customers see as good value. It’s a good idea to regularly review your prices against your competitors as it can give you an idea of what people are willing to pay for the same products or services that you offer.
