No, today’s title is not a typo.
It’s a famous quote from marketer Dan Kennedy, whose understanding of value — and how to communicate it — made him one of the most successful copywriters ever. Kennedy understood that price isn’t just a number that represents profit. Price is also a signal, a window into something less concrete, but just as important: value.
Every entrepreneur needs to master the distinction between price and value, and the relationship between the two.
Today, we’ll discuss what this quote means, and how you can apply it yourself and your business. You’ll learn why “free” is never free, and why a lower price doesn’t guarantee savings. Discerning value, relative to price, is a must-master skill for entrepreneurs.
