Pricing your business can be a tricky task – endless hours can be spent determining whether the right price has been set for your precious product or service.
For some, developing a pricing strategy may seem like wasted time. But I promise you it will be totally worth it in the long run. I mean, who doesn’t want to be rewarded correctly for their time and efforts?!
Many small businesses owners tend to feel stuck when with their pricing. It can seem like a daunting task, and with it comes a bit of reluctance. Understandable if you ask me!
When I decided on my pricing, I spent a considerable amount of time determining the most effective pricing strategy. I started by working backward from what profit I wanted to see. From there, I considered my costs and the time required to complete the task.
And voila! The guide to pricing for IM Business Solutions was born. Might I add, this strategy has been used ever since…whenever a new service is introduced at IM Biz or a client asks for help, this is my go-to approach.
When forming your strategy, pricing should always, and I stress ALWAYS reflect:
~ The time and effort required to deliver the desired outcome
~ Your skills, knowledge, experience, and any relevant qualifications
~ The costs associated with providing your product/service
~ The value that your product or service can deliver
One common mistake I see a lot is undercharging *cue instant regret*. When this happens, it can often lead to a lot of awkward conversations, difficult discussions, and sometimes, unnecessary worry.
I hate to break it to you, but it can have a disastrous impact on the financial health of your biz. Whether it be a one-off sale or an ongoing package, never sell yourself short!
If you are worried that you are costing your business money (eeeek), go ahead and ask yourself the following questions:
1. How did you decide what to charge?
2. Did you consider what profit you would like to make?
3. What about your costs? Have they been covered?
