Marketing Section The element of the marketing mix that I am going to address will be the pricing element. This is because I believe that the price of a chocolate bar is the most important factor to take under consideration whilst trying to sell a chocolate bar. Range of Pricing Strategies The 12 important factors of pricing: Premium Pricing: Use a high price where there is uniqueness about the product or service. This approach is used where a substantial competitive advantage exists. Penetration Pricing: The price charged for products and services is set artificially low in order to gain market share.
