Following up on last Monday’s Placebo Pricing article, the ever sharp Lisa Hirsch from Iron Tongue of Midnight started doing some digging around in her neck of the woods on ticket price issues and turned up some very intriguing results. In a post titled Pricing and Audience Resentment she provides a few apt observations on timing and steep price cuts.
In a follow-up article, A Bit More on Pricing and Audience Segmentation, she takes aim demand pricing strategies and I know, it’s a topic that for some is well worn but for others it is still relatively new. Add Hirsch’s candid assessment to the mix and it’s a very worthwhile read.
