Rising business operating costs means a lower profit margin. It has only to do with how much product costs a company incurs. So in order to increase profit margin, the organization has to reduce product raw material cost, labor cost, advertising cost, etc. Furthermore, for those companies that provide intangible services for example; Investment, Banking, Training and so one, they will not have a product costing like the other factors bur]t they still need to pay for the company’s expenditures, employees’ salaries and so on. In order to reduce the rising cost, they can package their services or intangible items. Instead of having your customers pick and choose services, combine them into packages that cater to individual needs and budgets. Secondly, you can Humanize the benefits of your service or intangible product. Create and demonstrate an emotional connection between the product or service and your customer. For example, if you sell life insurance, an advertisement that features a young couple and a child can demonstrate how the parents have peace of mind knowing they can still take care of their family if the unthinkable happens. In that way, you can reduce the rising cost of your company.
