Price Your Service Right

Price Your Service Right

Competitively pricing your services is a challenge for many service providers, consultants, and freelancers. One of the biggest challenges for many is trading time for money and discomfort with selling yourself as a service provider. As a result, you may underprice your services, offer unnecessary discounts, or work yourself to burnout. In this class we’ll discuss how to stop under-valuing yourself and over-giving to clients and price your service right so both you and your clients are happy and successful! 

We’ll also spend time in class determining the right price point for your services. You’ll leave this class with more confidence in your pricing at a price that’s just right.
