How to Price Your Services
Pricing is one of the most important factors that has a direct impact on your profit. Pricing is how much you charge for your service. A pricing strategy is simply that—a strategic plan and it's a very significant one. If you don't approach it in this way, you can struggle to decide how much to charge. If you stumble for too long, you might never get it back. Pricing can make or break the lifespan and health of your business, regardless of your sector, product, or service. Let's dig into pricing 101.
Step 1. Calculate your costs. Whatever pricing strategy you plan to use, before you set your prices, you should figure out what your costs are.
Step 2. Considerations with pricing. There is a lot of flexibility in how you set your prices. The downside to this flexibility is that there isn't an out-of-the-box solution or formula that you can apply to pricing in your business.
Step 3. Choose a Pricing Model. There are classic pricing models. They are the hourly rate, the flat rate, and the retainer fee.
The price of a product, service, or commodity is determined by whether or not someone will pay for it. That's all the market price is. It's really that simple. You knew this entrepreneurial thing meant never staying in your comfort zone, right? Go on and deliver excellent value and receive appropriate value in return.
