Market and competitive information is considered by many as the Holy Grail toward the achievement of superior financial and market performance. While segmentation of markets is used for many purposes, how should it be done when it’s for pricing application? And what is the potential of targeting micro-segments?
Furthermore, in some industries, competitive price data has greater transparency than in others. If you can get it, how should it be used to best advantage? And what are your options when reliable information is not publicly available?
