Things Buyers Value More Than Low PriceToo many people in both sales and marketing get hung up on price because they believe that price is foremost in the mind of the buyer. Yet, study after study has found that price typically ranks dead last among the reasons people buy what they buy. (And where they buy it.)

What do buyers value more than a low price? Things like:

1. Accuracy
2. Beauty
3. Being treated well
4. Cleanliness
5. Color choices
6. Comfort
7. Consistency
8. Convenience
9. Customization
10. Design

So rather than focus on price, look at this list and determine which items apply to your company, product or service. Then build your marketing campaigns and sales presentations around those. Refer to those items when comparing your offerings to your competitors. Use them to overcome price objections.

When you emphasize the qualities that deliver real value to your customers, you’ll be able to close more sales. And you’ll be able to do it without discounting or price matching. Because the above items are what your buyers truly want.
