Omnichannel sales are making their mark. They have, in fact, saved many traditional businesses from closing and allowed others to make the leap to new markets, and multiply their revenues. It is increasingly rare to find a physical store that does not have an online point of sale, either through its website, social media profiles or on a marketplace. Or even mixing online and offline channels, generating a phygital experience

One of the great challenges of omnichannel sales is ensuring that customers have the same experience regardless of the channel they use. In terms of price, this invariably involves an omnichannel pricing strategy, implemented using Price Intelligence.

So, whether you already own an omnichannel sales business or are thinking about integrating omnichannel sales, read on to learn how to define an omnichannel pricing strategy.

What does price consistency mean? 

If you have anything to do with the investment sector, you may well have heard of price consistency in frictionless market-related contexts. This is because, in these markets, goods are sold without transaction costs, which helps keep prices remarkably stable.

Maintaining a price consistency strategy in a global environment where elements such as taxes, tariffs, shipping costs and other surcharges play a crucial role in determining the final price is both a headache and a challenge. But can be done.

Benefits of an omnichannel pricing strategy

In the digitalized and globalized landscape we live in, consumers can compare prices in seconds with a single click. So, maintaining a coherent and consistent pricing strategy is vital to the survival of any project.

Various studies hold that a well-executed omnichannel pricing strategy can be a differentiating element in a highly competitive landscape, strengthening customer confidence and improving brand perception.

Achieving a coherent omnichannel pricing strategy requires constant attention and adaptation.

There are various things you can do to ensure your pricing strategy stays effective and aligned with your project goals over time. For example:

  1. Establish a clear pricing policy: Define and internally communicate the criteria for setting and adjusting prices across all sales channels.
  2. Constantly monitor the market: Use competitor price monitoring tools to track competitors’ prices and anticipate changes in demand.
  3. Automate price updates: Implement technological solutions such as a Dynamic Pricing Tool that allow you to adjust prices dynamically and consistently across all channels.
  4. Analyze the impact of prices on sales: Harness quality data and analysis to understand how price changes affect consumer behaviour and sales.
  5. Maintain fluid communication with customers: Inform customers about price changes, as specified under the omnibus directive, to maintain trust and transparency.
  6. Adapt to market changes: Be flexible and willing to adjust your pricing strategy (repricing) in response to new information or market trends.

Integrate all areas of the business into your strategy using a Price Intelligence tool and base decisions on quality analysis. Maximizing your company’s potential, improving customer satisfaction and encouraging sustainable growth will be much easier.
