The Price is Right: The How- To's of Pricing Your Products & Services
One of the most difficult decisions business owners face is how much to charge for their product or service. Understanding which price points motivate or dissuade consumers from purchasing is key to setting the right price.
During the workshop, we'll focus on the following:

The workshop includes an interactive activity that helps participants to determine their business's cost structure and how it relates to their current pricing.
