This is part one of a four-part series with pricing expert and Pragmatic instructor Mark Stiving. Each new episode will feature a case study on current pricing trends.
In this episode of Pragmatic Live, Rebecca Kalogeris, VP of marketing for Pragmatic Institute, interviews Mark about the streaming wars and more importantly, subscription-model pricing.
Netflix increased its pricing at the start of 2022 by $1 - $2 per month depending on the selected plan. Additionally, they are testing how to charge more for “sharing” accounts with friends and family who live in different places.
They discuss:
  • How do we get different customers with different willingness to pay to still buy our product?
  • The risk of offering ad-supported cheaper versions
  • Why “good, better, best” options work so well in subscription services
