Is your pricing strategy killing your bottom line?

In today’s competitive retail market, home goods store owners and managers are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to approach pricing. There are many methods for achieving this, but times have changed and it is important to know which methods work.

PROFITsystems has been working with home furnishings retailers for many years, helping them develop a framework and pricing model for achieving higher profitability. Common pricing models are based on cost, competitor pricing, grandpa’s profit wheel, or even just setting a price based on what the retailer believes is best. However, there is no black and white in setting a pricing model; it is a combination of activities that contributes to the bottom line.

Markdown” is a common word in the retail furniture industry, and is defined as the process of adjusting pricing to meet customer demand. These items are usually slow-movers, but successful store owners and managers see this list of non-sellers as an opportunity to make money. Dedication to a successful profit strategy can help identify the sweet spot between margin and sales volume of the product.

Key performance indicators like GMROI help retailers understand the performance of an item and set pricing on future items. There are Retail Management Software packages available that can help with reporting, and certain systems are even capable of auto-markdown. It can be made a lot easier with the proper tools!

With this framework in mind, it is extremely important set achievable goals. Have a plan of reviewing and assessing information and commit to a schedule. Even an hour a day spent on pricing can greatly contribute to your bottom line. Can I raise the price a little bit more? How much more money can I make on the same inventory? It is important to ask yourself these questions when evaluating a pricing strategy.

Work on your business, not just in your business! Keeping current with competitive pricing is just as important as managing expenses in the warehouse or managing the sales staff to make sure you have the best people. Being proactive on pricing strategies can be the difference between sitting on inventory and having a lean warehouse full of top sellers.

For help with determining if you are ready for a software platform to help achieve these goals, feel free to contact Kevin at kevin.white@accellos.com or download our recent webinar
