Good, Better, Best Packages

While I could sit here and try to convince you that three is the magic number and that “Good, Better, Best” service tiers are the way to go, thankfully I don’t have to. That’s because my friend Nigel Moore, Founder of The Tech Tribe, has already done this in his book Package Price Profit. As he so eloquently puts it: 

“We humans love choice. But funnily enough – not too much of it. We all love shopping, but we hate being sold to. Having a number of options allows your clients to feel like they are going shopping and helps them feel like they are in control of the buying process (even though we are the ones that have crafted the process for them. […] By offering your clients a number of options, they are much more likely to simply compare your Good plan with your Better and Best plans instead of comparing your ONLY plan with a plan from your competitor.” 

I completely agree with his sentiment here, as I have found that this model works for just about any business that you can apply it to. What I have also found interesting is that even when you offer the ability to “customize” these Good, Better, Best, plans to the customer’s liking, they often still choose a pre-packaged option instead. People love “curation,” and when done correctly, that is really what this is. 

Creative Branding Ideas

Since Nigel has done all the hard work for us (as usual), we can focus on the more creative aspects of this concept to build on top of his recommendations. After you have separated your services into three tiers, you’ll want to find unique and creative ways to brand these bundles to make them more appealing to your prospective customers. This way when they are “shopping” your services, they will be drawn more to the tiers that they relate to from a brand-perspective. This is no different than the way that people buy everyday products such as shampoo, cereal, dish detergent, pet food, etc. 

So I decided to feed this into the “idea machine” as many different ways as possible to see if I could develop a really robust list of options for MSPs to rebrand their service tiers. Here are the best examples that I came up with, as well as descriptions that you can use to better explain them to your customers:
