How to Price Your Work – 3 Powerful Strategies You Can Use Immediately

September 22, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Establishing prices for your work has an immediate impact on the success and sustainability of your maker business.

For artisans, it is extremely important to get your pricing right. If prices are too low, you don’t make enough money. If they are too high, people won’t buy. Either way, your business loses.

This workshop describes the pricing strategies that are fundamental for finding the best price for your work, and for maximizing your sales.

Main elements of the workshop:

  • Impact of price on sales and on profit
  • Operating cost based pricing
  • Value-based pricing
  • Price anchoring
  • Scarcity pricing
  • Competition based pricing

The workshop provides you several benefits:

  • Clarity on which pricing strategy works best for your maker business
  • Immediate impact on your sales
  • Recognition of the value of your work
