“Stop Running A Charity, and Start Running a Business!”
How to get paid what you’re worth when quoting clients
Most business owners find that by the end of a project or a job, they have either made very little, or in some cases, no money at all. In the worst cases business owners even lose money. If you’re working long hours to give away your time and hard earned money, you’re running a charity NOT A BUSINESS!
Think about this…
Have you recently submitted a quote to a client and felt you priced it too low?
Have you quoted clients in the past only to have lost money or barely broken-even on the project?
Do you quote clients with what you think is high, only to have your profit margin eaten away by unforeseen delays, revisions or expenses?
If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, then you need to see this!
Whether you are a freelancer or run an agency, getting your quotes right can mean the difference between growing and running a successful business, or going back to the doldrums of a regular 9-5 job.
In this presentation we are going to run you through:
– The top reasons freelancers lose money on quotes
– The 8 steps to quoting success
– The tools you can use to help you
What you’ll have achieved by the end of it
By the end of this talk you should be able to use my 8 step process to get your project quotes right the first time and never lose money again.
You will also have a better understanding of the variables that can negatively impact your quotes and how to keep them in mind when you are pricing your services.
Gain the confidence to ask for what you are worth from your clients, by arming you with the facts you need to support your asking price.
