Description

Most freelancers and small business owners struggle with putting a price on their services. Many end up using a pricing model that leaves them run ragged trying to pay the bills, rather than one that lets them build a healthy, sustainable business.
If you’re quoting clients an hourly rate for your services, chances are you’re hurting your business… even if that hourly rate was methodically calculated. That’s because you can really only charge so much per hour and there are only so many hours in a week, putting a limit on how much you can earn. Problem is—that limit usually has nothing to do with how valuable your services are.
There’s a better way to approach your pricing and building your business, a way that’s fair to both you and your clients. In this book you’ll learn how to significantly increase your income by charging what you’re really worth. You’ll discover that value-based pricing is not about putting a bigger price tag on your work. It’s about fundamentally changing the way you work with your clients, a way that opens the door to bigger and better results for the both of you.
This incredibly simple book that you can read in just one hour, will show you how to be rewarded for all your skills, talents, wisdom and creativity.

    I have heard some notable marketing mentors like Ilise Benum advocate value based pricing, but this parable based book drives home what’s possible. There is a lot more to implementing the strategy, I think, but this helps in heading you off in the right direction.
