When we first start out in business, we are drawn to the idea that we need to be cheaper than our competitors in order to get a start. Many of us also offer our services for free to get "exposure" or to build a portfolio and testimonials.
The trouble with this process is that many of us get stuck in a cycle of discounting our rates, offering our time for free and never making our business viable.
In this one hour class full of ways to secure better revenue for your business, you will learn:
The three traps that new businesses fall into when it comes to pricing their time
The reality of today's customer and why they are willing to take advantage of us
About the myth that keeps you from making good revenue from your free services
How to transitioning your revenue model
Getting customers to value your time and pay for it
The tools to use to make that paid time happen
This workshop is brought to you by Business Station and AusIndustry under the Digital Solutions Program.
