What Should We Charge For The Services Our Business Offers?

I'm really interested in learning how you charge your customers and clients.

Seen several posts in the community about this subject and received a message about a month ago from one of the Google Partners on how much they should be charging.

Seen several articles on the subject and really started contemplating,

Is what I'm charging at a competitive rate?

Am I over charging?

Am I under charging?

What impacts the fees that our agencies charge?

Is it location? Skillset? Services We Offer? 

Does it depend on the size of the client - Corporation vs. Local Business Owner

Hourly Rate vs Flat Fee?

Do you start with a retainer?

If yes, How Much?

Is the retainer a flat fee or percentage?

Is your service a one time fee or reoccurring?

What do you think about how you charge for your services.

Join me in finding out why and how we charge what we do.

Getting a great start to the month. I feel like it's going to be a great year. I'm working to better myself and my community. I'm loving my new Ava Anderson Nontoxic products, and looking forward to raising more money to fight hunger in America! Please contact me if you're interested in more information regarding either!

I will soon be opening a new consignment store and wanting to set up a website to sale online. Looking for a site to create a website that is reasonable and has good tech support.  Also looking for Hardware/software package deal.  Any suggestions?  Also any tips on what to do or not to do to make this a successful business.

Hello everyone. I just recently started writing this blog to help some of my friends learn how to get their websites on #Google   search. Maybe some of you will find it useful as well. I hope to continue writing new posts :) #rank   #localbusiness  
Getting your page listed first on Google is like winning the lottery - you won’t know what to do with all the money - but it's absolutely NOT up to chance...

SMART businesses are doing this but the field is wide open. I just researched one dental keyword and found that only 3 of 10 people paying decent $ for Google Adwords were capturing audience data for remarketing. You must start capturing the data now even if you don't run ads (however you should). Especially if you are paying for traffic. If you don't it's like saying please can I have lower results from my marketing than I otherwise can get. Take action now before your competitors beat you to it.

Marketing Motivation Monday: "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." -Oscar Wilde. 

All too often businesses try to emulate the success of whatever is hot or happening or trending. Of course all companies, including yours, should evolve with the times, but be careful that your company's identity is not lost. #digitalmarketing   #brandingtips   #whoareyou
