Cost: $20.00

Discover what’s behind every good pricing strategy so you can develop one of your own that strikes the right balance between profit and greater market share.

Find out how to improve cash flow, avoid the five most common pricing mistakes, steer clear of price wars, when to use discounting and how it impacts profits. 

Get on top of the key numbers, including gross margin, mark-up and breakeven, and learn how to identify your best sellers so you can pump up the profits.

Delivered by a small business financial expert and packed with practical tips, tools and techniques you can apply straight away, this workshop includes a free one-on-one mentoring session to guide you through the process of developing a pricing strategy of your own.
