Home Business Owners Ponder, “What Should I Charge?”

by Mary Emma Allen on December 7th, 2007

“What should I charge,” long has been a quandry for home business owners concerning their products and services. 

Laura Spencer at Work From Home Momma provides some interesting information to consider about the question, “Should You Set Your Initial Price Low to Get Clients?”

Many business owners often think this way because:

*They aren’t confident of their abilities and quality of their product.

*They want some money…even if it’s a little money.

* They have other income and don’t have to depend on this income for a living.

*They can always go up on their price.

Check out what Laura Spencer’ post and her readers’ comments for ideas.  She also has some additional related posts at other blogs to consider.

    FAILURE OF BUSINESS: FOR MANY YEARS I HAVE OFTEN WORRIED THAT I MAY FAIL HAVING STARTED A BUSINESS : when in 2004 I started a small fashion outlet selling fashion accessories.Things were slow at first but after two years of Trading I had now progressed to selling fashion Garments from size 8 to 28 at reasonable prices. I had just reached my piacle of success where the garments and accessories were flying out the shop and the til was ringing all day long.It was a wonderfull feeling and I am glad I experienced it but a few months along the Manager came around to tell every one the units were closing down as the owner was selling the land.Everyone was suddenly out of business. FAILURE OF BUSINESS CAN COME IN MANY FORMS, SO JUST PICK YOUR-SELF UP, DUST YOUR-SELF DOWN AND START ALL OVER AGAIN. ( as the song goes). GOOD LUCK.
