How to Determine Your Pricing:
1. Determine how much you actually need to survive personally.
2. Multiply that amount by 70%. This should be your bottom package. Divide that by 3 to account for your take home pay, your taxes, and investing in your business. See how you can add more services and upsell.
3. After you’ve had time to try out your pricing, take time to reevaluate to price higher than you need to survive.
