The Competitor Benchmarking module allows you to price match against your competitors. Here you can find valuable insights and information regarding a competing brand’s pricing ladder, to understand the effectiveness of a pricing strategy within a market.

Step 1: Establish retailers and categories you wish to compare 

Select the list of brands or retailers and that you have in mind with the relevant categories. In this example, we are looking at fast fashion brands Zara, H&M and Topshop in the UK market. 

Step 2: Analyse the pricing architecture/breakdown between retailers

To determine the difference of price architecture by these different brands, go to the Price Distribution card under Retailer Analysis.

Focus on the difference of price brackets and the type of products listed for each bracket. This helps you to further understand the price range for the different tiers of product fashionability based on the ‘Good, Better, Best’ (GBB) pricing strategy.

For instance, the first price bracket is within the range of GBP 0-10, the mid-price bracket is within the range of GBP 10-30 and the highest price bracket is within the range of GBP 30-80. 

Gain more insights on the price breakdown by comparing the list of products offered by these brands within the various price brackets.

For example, in the GBP 0-10 range, you would only find core and basic Tops such as T-Shirts and Cami Tops. If you are producing similar products, compare the price against your own to understand whether the target price is within a similar range.

This helps you to gauge the competitiveness of your pricing against others in the market and to avoid overpricing or underpricing a product.  

Key Takeaways

Reviewing the price breakdown of competitors gives you insights into consumer expectations and to gain a stronger foothold in the market. Regular pricing optimisation allows you to maximise the value of your products and sustain high margins throughout the trading period.
