Based on Mark Striving, Goldbricks uses Good-Better-Best. It is an intelligent pricing tactic that every firm should consider; it’s an extension of versioning that takes advantage of customers’ psychological make-up. People who are unsure what they want will usually buy the middle, or “Better” choice out of Good-Better-Best. Go back and read that sentence again: People who are unsure what they want will usually buy the middle or “Better” choice out of Good-Better-Best. So providing a middle choice is the crux of the good, better, best tactic.
It has been shown that customers avoid “Best” because they are afraid of paying too much; it also shows that they are even more afraid of “Good” (the lowest choice) because they are afraid to purchase the lowest quality, and it may make them look cheap. So, when uncertain, they buy “Better”. This means, if company currently have two versions of offering, company should seriously consider adding a third with more features at a higher price (and feature level). This action will likely sway any of customers who were stuck between buying “Good” (the lowest) and “Better” (the middle), to choose “Better”. Companies will also likely sell some “Best” and at much higher profit than your other offerings. Overall, simply adding a “Better” option puts more profit dollars in pocket.
