Pricing your services is a continual challenge, whether you're a seasoned or rookie creative professional. New services and new technologies mean adapting the way you approach and talk money with prospects and clients and demonstrate the value you bring to each working relationship.

Ilise Benun, founder of Marketing-Mentor.com and author of “The Creative Professional’s Guide to Money” will present new ideas on how to think about the value of your services (i.e. what you’re “worth”) and how to articulate and communicate that value to the right people—those who appreciate that value—so you don’t waste your time and theirs.

You will learn:

  • The “right” way to think about “what you’re worth”
  • How to gauge a prospect’s budget before you spend/waste time on a proposal
  • How to do 3-tiered pricing
  • How to package your services
