Charging for service is based on your personal ability and negotiation skills.
Check out your competitors prices if they have stable/fixed price.
Also, the quality of service you want to render will also be determined by price too. Meanwhile, its always to set price higher and customers/clients also believed High price will always produce quality and best service.

Lastly, dont sell below your means or marketplace. If you do, you are killing your business.... WHY: Some folks want cheaper services and these set of people wont mind getting it for free or even lesser than the actual price.

This is a huge question and it brings up all kinds of different issues.

It's almost impossible to charge a business too much because most people starting out are way underpricing their services.

There's also the issue of your "posture"...how you come across to your client...which dramatically effects how much you can charge.

For a website I know of people who charge between $250 and $20,000+ for one website.

People I teach don't charge $250. There's just no sense to it.

If you're going to help a client create a website you should be designing it as a customized marketing tool that brings them in sales and profits.

And clients buying a sales tool that brings them in profits are willing to pay a lot more because they know they're going to get a return.

It's no longer a cost...it's an investment where they're expecting to get their money back many times over.

Kindest regards,
Andrew Cavanagh

Why don't you find a prospect. Offer to do something for $x. If they take it, you know you can charge at least that much some times. So, find another one, charge $x+100. If it works, repeat.

If the first time, they say no, offer a discount. If they still say no, find another prospect and start lower.

Base your starting price on what others in your area are willing to do it for. How do you find out? You pretend you're looking for that particular service.

If 3 out of 5 quote you $573.27, start around there.

I charge $495 for an analysis of the first 10 organic search results for the business's niche; takes me about 4 - 8 hours. I don't do it in one shot. I spread it out over a couple of days. Gives me time to mull over ideas and come up with the best course of action.

That includes keyword research and why the client's asset is ranked where it is.
It also includes what the client needs to do for higher ranking; better page optimization etc...
I do a good job. I read every page of every organic listing in the top ten.
I have accounts with all the online SEO tools and and look at all their links etc...

If I get the deal, I'll charge a minimum of $1500, generally not higher than $3,000, for site redesign (I haven't run into a business without some type of website yet), optimization, a video or two or more, social stuff, natural looking link building using content etc... plus $195.00 per month for me to use my proprietary software.

Local business owners eyes glaze over after about 5 minutes of talking about SEO for their business. I have found if I explain in full, excruciating detail, the nuts and bolts about SEO, and how THEY can do it, they'll interrupt and ask if I will do it for them. You can't be selling, just explain how they can do it after work or in the evening.

Every one of my clients don't want to take any part of their free time working on their Internet Assets.
They all try and beat me up over price, I find silence is the best answer after saying this quote is my best deal.

IMO, leverage is always the best negotiating tactic.
Because I have a good business, I can walk away from any quote, I don't need it.
The prospective client has no leverage on me.

If I was broke, it would be a different story, the client would have all the leverage and if they felt the weakness, if they're smart, they would pounce all over it negotiating a better price.

The only way to get to that point is pounding on doors and using your existing clients for referrals.

I still get a ton of work from referrals. Even from clients I worked for years ago.

Of course you have to have results.
Everyone loves to brag about something great they got.
Everyone loves to complain about something shitty too.

Hope you have a prosperous 2017!

I undercut my competition and double my revenue by using a subscription/residual revenue model. Passive income is the best income.

Example: 5 Page Website -- $297 Canadian w/ a $23/month residual package. That comes out to almost $600/client in year one. Sales are quick and easy to close at this lower rate.

I could go for the $700-1200 clients, but I prefer my quick closing.

Show some respect. Here's a guy who knows what he wants and goes for it.

No matter how many people try to offer him more money for his work, he's only going to "demand $20 per creation".

Offers of hundreds of dollars will not weaken his resolve.

You are in the midst of greatness. Humble yourself and be content.

I thought he was talking about insemination.

When one is younger performance is far more rapid and thus $20 per creation could amount to hundreds of dollars per day.

Now when older it has to be about $5K as the likelihood of performance is perhaps bi-monthly or maybe even only once a month.

Heck...ask Frank or Ewen - they're charging $200K because if there's any creation it's likely to be once in a blue moon. . ..

. . .and they know the true lifetime cost of producing the little buggers.

Okay, I'll humble myself: henceforth, I shall charge $20 for one The and one a or and in a headline.

And I shall be content all day long with that $20.



PS Some people's resolve is so awe-inspiring!

That's not a bad deal, $20 per creation. I'd probably buy two If I was drunk enough.

Yep, Frank, Ewen and... what's that other guy's name who also has a book on "one call closing"?

I'm thinking he was referring to the "blue moon" as well, when he mentioned his favorite closing line from the book:

"we either do it now, or fergit it!"

I used to have a price for every service and I even went to the trouble of posting it on my website. But you know what I discovered?

First, every single client is different. Different budgets. Different needs / wants.

Second, MOST businesses don't shop for web design and social media cover services online (and those that do end up with Wix and Weebly etc)

Start thinking like the kind of business you want to have as a client. Most of the time, they're used to seeing things on paper - like a bid or proposal. They want to know that you've heard what they want and your price is custom quoted.

And try to get everyone in to your $169 monthly maintenance plan where you take care of WordPress updates, backups, etc.

Prices vary If you want to sell these services in any marketplace.

If you want to provide these services through your website then after doing competition analysis you should set your price. Thanks :-)
