Whatever that means
Having absentmindedly turned into the lane for the first time in almost 18 months, Laurence Kirk has popped in for a brief visit …
Laurence (for it is he) – Ooh, Baldy that was nice. One for old time’s sake. She new?
Baldy – Oh, yeah, that’s Taylor. Last week. She’s mouthy but, y’know, that can be an advantage sometimes. ‘Specially when you’ve got punters pleading poverty and even trying to haggle!
Laurence – Well, Baldy, it’s just as I was saying the last time we spoke. I was catching up on the MBA there on the Harvard Business School’s site as your girl was doing her stuff and it was saying that in a recession it makes sense to change the basis for your pricing. That most experts believe that pricing based on value – the economic or psychological benefits delivered by your product or service – is much more effective than competitor-, cost-, or customer-driven pricing strategies. Now, we understood what we were delivering and that’s what they forgot along at Angels and look what happened to them.
Baldy – Still, now that Angels is gone we should clean up.
Laurence – Well, somebody should. Look at this place. It’s a shit hole.
