We will brainstorm business expense ideas in part one and the thought process behind pricing decisions in part two.A hardcopy of a sample startup budget will be distributed at the workshop. The budget template will be sent out along with the PowerPoint presentation a few days after the workshop has been presented.            

Pricing Products and Services: Knowing if your “Price is Right” Correctly pricing your product or service is crucial to your business’ success. It's just as important if you are in the start up phase of your business, or if you have been in business for years. Your pricing should be evaluated regularly. But what factors should you consider when determining your price? This workshop will discuss critical elements small business owners should address when setting their prices from “cost plus”, to market-driven, to understanding your competition. Whether you are selling a product or a selling a service, this workshop will help you understand the key factors that go into pricing, and thus help you optimize your pricing for your business success.
