Strategic Prices & Packages

Taught by Tina @hellotinamay

- How you structure your services will have a huge impact on the way your business operates, & there are pros & cons to every approach. In this lesson I’m show you how to decide between different pricing models & packages, so that you can get clear on which model is the best fit for you. Then crunch some numbers and look at the three different factors you need to consider when setting your pricing!

The first thing you need to do is decide on a pricing model for your business, and there are essential 4 different models to choose from: - hourly rate - project-based - monthly retainers based on a set scope - monthly retainer with a flexible scope (or base rate + add ons)

The next question is, how much should I charge? This is a big question with no simple answer as there are so many factors involved and it varies based on your type of business and the services you offer.

There are 3 main things that factor into your overall pricing strategy:

  1. You want to make sure you are more than covering your costs
  2. You want to be fairly compensated for the work that goes into the project
  3. You need to have a compelling value proposition for the target customer you are attracting.

So it just needs to be fair, but competitive and still profitable enough to justify running your own business. Once you’ve crunched the numbers, then you need to think about your target audience, your brand positioning & the psychology of pricing.
