Raise your rates without wrecking your business

Webinar
Presented by Dante St James

Some products are high-margin. They bring you a solid return on your investment to deliver them. Some have a margin that’s a little less grand. Then other services or products you provide may actually be running at a loss.

While these “loss leaders” may be something that you use to bring in more high-value business, they may actually be working against your business, by eroding profits and cheapening the cost of entry for customers to do business with you. The trouble with having a low cost of entry, is that you’ll be competing with many others who do what you do, and can sustain lower prices longer than you can.

While it can be valuable to your business to provide some kind of free or low-cost entry point, it is of no use if it’s costing you way more than the potential lifetime value of a customer.

This webinar will take a look at three businesses that started with low-cost entry points, what the impact was on their business, and how they transitioned to a higher priced model that was more sustainable over the long term.

In this session you will:

  • See how low pricing models work for products and services
  • Learn the true impact of low pricing models on a profitability
  • Learn to calculate pricing that more sustainable for your business
  • Learn how to transition from your current rates to higher one
  • Learn how to migrate customers to higher rates, or - to other providers
