How to Present Good-Better-Best Pricing

Good-Better-Best pricing helps bridge the gap between contractors and homeowners. This pricing strategy can also help you differentiate your services. Unfortunately, many companies and industries have yet to adopt this concept due to implementation concerns. Let’s take a closer look at the G-B-B approach and how the “power of choice” can drive high profit margins and new revenue.

What is Good-Better-Best Pricing?

Good-Better-Best is a tiered pricing strategy that commonly offers three product options for homeowners at gradually increasing prices. Specifically, this includes a “good” option, “better” option, and the “best” option. According to Harvard Business Review, it’s a “psychological pricing strategy” that gives the customer the ability to determine which option is best for his or her specific needs and circumstances.

In fact, Good-Better-Best pricing isn’t a new concept. It’s a proven strategy that gives homeowners the power to determine value. Some homeowners will value cheaper options due to their financial means, while others will value more expensive options with better materials or features. This model serves all sides of your customer base while helping you generate more growth and revenue. But how do you present G-B-B pricing? Implementation alone is one of the main reasons why many companies have yet to embrace this strategy.

Let’s meet! Book a 15-min phone call and learn how Leap can help you implement a Good-Better-Best pricing strategy!

How to Implement G-B-B in Your Business

Implementing Good-Better-Best pricing doesn’t have to be as tricky as it may seem. If you’re currently offering one price point, use it as the “better” option. In addition, create a package that increases quality as the “best” option and a package with lower quality materials as the “good” option. In general, you want a tiered strategy that has a balanced progression of improvements.

  1. Choose attributes that will separate price points, such as roofing types or warranties. 
  2. Retain cheaper-pricing benefits in higher-pricing offerings so that every step of the ladder has clear improvements for customers to see. 
  3. Have a low step-up cost to keep high margins like a better warranty.

You’re playing offense, defense, and consumer psychology all at once, notes the Harvard Business Review. And the goal is to make your products and services more accessible to more customers. As a result, defining this pricing strategy can help increase margins and give you more brand recognition in the process.

Don’t set a “good” price that’s more than 25% below the “better” option. Moreover, the “best” price should not exceed “better” by more than 50%. And make sure to create names for your packages that help homeowners quickly identify the best option for them.

Make Selling Your Services & Presenting Price Easy

Price Options

Leap gives you the power of generating tiered price options and presenting price to homeowners in a clean and professional package. Before Leap, this was done by repeatedly redoing the math in a template and involved a lot of linking and logic.

Now, successful contractors who use Leap build their “good, better, best” packages within the estimates section and can populate the price from each package into the contract.

Offer Financing & Payment Options

Home improvement companies find collecting payment to be more time-consuming than it needs to be. Offering payment options can boost sales, reduce turnaround time, and establish creditability.

With Leap, you can offer several payment options with the help of Leap Secure Sign, Payment Capture, and submit several credit applications and receive a decision instantly.

Close the Deal

Using Leap Secure Sign is as simple as generating a contract and hitting the sign button. Once you capture the customer’s signature, you can send it to different email addresses. This also provides you with the ability to sign a signature directly on the iPad.

No more sifting through your email to find a customer’s contract or payments. With Leap, you can centralize and organize all communications with a customer.
