  1. The problem with VM's promotions is that they condition buyers to wait for a sale. They should just reduce the price to a level where they don't need to run deep discounts on their phones.

    Secondly, the $250 price on the Victory has been on VM's site for so time now. The irony is that after reducing the price on the Victory, the reviews have improved. Had VM priced the Victory at $250 or so at the getgo, it would have enjoyed both positive reviews and sales.

    1. Not to familiar with Sales and marketing 101 ?!

    2. Sales and Marketing 101 often contradicts with ROIC.

      Why do you think Apple, Inc. is so successful -- they have a great ROIC because they don't play games with the prices of their products. You won't see Apple, Inc. discount the iPhone 5 by 50% over two days just to move the product. The products will move, but the high ROIC will be destroyed.

      That is why companies driven by CEO's that were former salemen tend to blow up their companies.

  2. Here's a great article on why Android products (especially if made by Samsung) are WAY overpriced.


    Please don't be fooled by bad marketing -- Samsung products and other android devices are way overpriced. The Reverb was never worth $250 to begin with. Neither was the $300 Victory.

    Consumers, thanks to this site (and other sites) and access to the internet, now know they can do better.

  3. One more article explaining why android devices are **basically** commodities.


    The sad truth is these android smartphones are just kits, i.e. a processor, a touchscreen, free android OS, a battery, etc.

    VM should get wise and adopt the razor and razor blade model: Sell the handsets for breakeven or a small loss, but make it up on the air time, where each marginal customer generates a huge amount of marginal revenue without the associated sizeable marginal cost. VM has got to think in the correct ROIC framework.
