Key Takeaways:

“I'm very happy with the choice I made back in 2007-ish to get into pricing, because as obviously as you know, it's the biggest driver of profit if you're priced correctly, so much more than sales volume or anything else.” – Dominick Latorre

“With the various choices for marketing dollars these days, you can't be upsetting clients and pulling multi-million-dollar deals because we weren't priced effectively and given them a rate that from day one it should have been a premium program; obviously, the demand is there. We should be charging it based upon that.” – Dominick Latorre

“You can drive more revenue by lowering your rates, and we've seen that in some cases.” – Dominick Latorre

“We talk to our sellers all the time. Sell the value of the program. Don’t combine it with other solutions. Don't sell a customer what we call a 9A4P rotator, where basically that customer spot could fall anywhere between that time period. That’s not selling value. Look at the value of our solutions and price accordingly to them.” – Dominick Latorre

“With so many marketing solutions out there and dollars to be spent, you have to make sure that you're priced effectively. And again, talking about value, making sure that the buyers see the value in your solution.” – Dominick Latorre
