What is the course about?

What is included in this course?

This course comes with ten recorded sessions on the theory and the application of five psychological pricing concepts. A comprehensive workbook summarizes the content we cover and leaves you with references beyond this course. To reflect on the course and to leave you with further inspiration for your own business, we offer additional quizzes and exercises.

What is this course NOT about?

This is not a general pricing course. In our time together we focus on the application of psychology to pricing decisions.

This is not a random collection of psychological pricing effects. This course aims to introduce you to five psychological principles that you could apply to various settings and decisions. In this way, we make the best use of your time. Instead of showing you a plethora of effects, we combine theoretical principles and their exemplary application to real-life situations. This combination might spark your inspiration for deploying those principles also to your specific business context. If you are looking for a comprehensive collection of psychological pricing effects, we also offer further references in this course. 

Is this just another theory course?

No. To equip you with the background of why these effects work and show you how these might be applied in the real world, each concept is explained in a theory session and demonstrated in a practice session.

In real-time experiments, you experience psychological effects yourself that make this course both valuable and entertaining.

What if I still have questions?

You are covered. The course instructor engages actively with the discussion forum and facilitates Q&A sessions via email.
