A web-based information publisher tested its price points with very interesting results.
For unlimited access to its website, the publisher’s control was $69.95.
Several different fees were suggested and then equally rotated among site visitors.

Hit the right target: Price v. Revenue (Credit: jcjones.com)


Here are the results.

Price Point Subscriptions Generated Total Revenue
Control $69.95 183 $12,800.85
Test 1 $50.00 218 $10,900.00
Test 2 $59.95 196 $11,750.20
Test 3 $75.00 181 $13,575.00
Test 4 $79.95 162 $12,951.90

 
Here’s where it gets interesting. At first glance, it seems that $75 reaped the highest return.
However, note that there were 218 orders at $50. This marketer must evaluate the lifetime value of its customers.
It may be wiser to lose some revenue to gain a new customer who will continue to buy in the future.
