Visit your competitors' retail stores in-person or send someone on your behalf to gather information about their pricing and promotional strategies. This method allows you to gain insights into how they present their products in-store and how they price items compared to your store.
Social Media Monitoring:
Keep an eye on your competitors' social media accounts to learn about their promotional offers and pricing strategies. Tools like Hootsuite, Mention, or Sprout Social can help you monitor their accounts, track mentions, and stay informed about their activities.
Remember to maintain ethical business practices and ensure accurate comparisons when implementing these ideas. By doing so, you can effectively adjust your pricing strategy to stay competitive in the market.
