  • . Pricing In Open Market For Graphic/visual Services Posted By: on 5/27/2006 1:31 AM (EST) 500 Points PRICING QUESTIONS: Suddenly lost anchor client, now find myself in open market and struggling with how best to establish AND APPLY new pricing without underselling myself.
  • . My anchor client was a realty broker who arranged for me to offer in-house marketing services to 100+ agents who would hire me individually as needed.
  • . Accordingly, with such a "closed" customer base, my in-house pricing was below open market value (Well, I'm assuming it was.) _ This brokerage relationship recently (and suddenly) became no more, and so now I find myself ramping up business with non-realty clients whose needs are a bit more diverse and broad.
  • . Now these new potential customers want estimates for this, that, and the other--yet I have no clue how much to charge for anything on the open market.

  • . By including the "open market" clause, you may be cutting yourself off from other sales.
  • . Example: if you sell exclusive Portuguese language rights to a licensee for Portugal and your agreement prevents "open market" sales, you can make an exclusive Portuguese rights deal for Brazil.

  • . "Probably a multi-level marketing (MLM) organization, " you think.

    International Direct Marketing Fair - Press Releases
  • Organised by Co-Located with: Supported by: Media Partners Press Releases 07 Feb 2006 Life on the open market UK Mail is well placed to benefit from the biggest change in the history of postal services.
  • . January 1 was a historic date because it signaled the full opening of the market for postal services and the end of Royal Mails 350 year monopoly.
  • . Probably Royal Mails leading competitor, UK Mail, the mail division of Business Post Group, was the first company to enter the mail market, more than eighteen months ago, when it was granted its license by industry regulator Postcomm.
  • . This development takes UK Mail into the lower end of the business market and it means that senders with as few as 250 items each day now have an alternative for their post.
  • . UK Mail is, therefore, ideally positioned to take advantage of market opening; and postal users down to low levels can now exercise choice in the matter of who handles their mail.
  • . The full liberalization of the market is likely to act as a catalyst for competitors to challenge Royal Mail, using a combination of pricing and product innovations. @CallCenter
