It’s hard enough to guide a company through a period of heavy inflation or during a recession. But it becomes much more difficult when they’re occurring at the same time.

This is stagflation. And economists are predicting a period of stagflation to last into 2024.

You may already be thinking about ways to reduce your expenses and shift your overall growth strategy.

But what about pricing?

When FastSpring’s Chief Product Officer Kurt Smith worked with growth-stage to Fortune 100 companies at Accel-KKR, he consistently saw pricing as one of the most essential growth levers they employed to meet their next revenue goal.

And Kurt believes that iterative pricing can be a highly effective strategy during volatile markets.

Join us for a one-hour live interview with Kurt to learn more about pricing strategies to combat stagflation.

We’ll cover topics like:

  • How to use inflation-adjusted metrics.
  • How to bake inflation into your annual contracts.
  • Pricing positioning by segment and strategies to assess a segment’s willingness.
  • Cost-effective ways to break into new markets during a downturn.
