PRICING YOUR PRODUCT
Tuesday, July 26, 2016, 6—8:00pm
What you’re selling is worth every penny! The question is, how many pennies? In this workshop we will examine pricing strategies that maximize your value and income. We will explore these and other questions on our journey.
How do my customers perceive my product or service, in terms of price and value?
How do my prices compare with my competitors?
What is my cost-per-unit? Did I capture it all?
