Discussion 1


Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum,


This week, you learned about the three core pricing strategies: penetration, neutral, and skim. In this interactive activity, you’re going to briefly recap the three pricing strategies, use them to classify the major pizza chains based on exploring the online ordering process, and then answer a few related questions. So let’s dig in!

   (a) a brief description of the 3 prices strategies, from least to most expensive

   (b) Classification of the five brands into the 3 pricing strategies: Penetration, neutral and skim

   (c) For any of the pricing strategies where you have multiple brands, rank the brands from least to most expensive.

    (d)Include the kind of pizza you priced out, your recorded prizes and any other pertinent notes.

    (e)Your classifications may differ from others but that is okay.

+Answer the following questions

    (a) Did your perception of these chains pricing strategies change based on this exercise? If so how

    (b) For you, which of these chains represent the greatest value and why? Explain how the mix of the 4 P’s of the marketing mix contributes to your answer.
