In Facebook groups people are always asking…
HOURLY RATE: This is where you can vary your fee depending on your experience and knowledge. Beginners might make $15-20 an hour, more advanced pros may aim for $50+, most of you can’t even imagine making $50+ an hour… I know I could not either! Know your worth and always grow.
Every market is different but that doesn’t mean you need to devalue your work to “fit the market”. Stand out! Create the new standard, be incomparable to your competition. A class of ONE!
DESIGNER DIY (available end of December 2021) – Work the framework from the my online course… it will help you create unique and intentional designs that will be more appealing to customers, set you above your competition and help you sell at a at a price point that values your work.
LOWEST PRICE: It is always good to know what your lowest price is that you are comfortable selling at. Never go below that price! Start higher with thisif you want to allow negotiations or consignment fees. If not just subtract 30% from this calculator and NEVER WAVER ON PRICE AGAIN!
My personal believe is… What you price your piece at a consignment shop is what you should sell your piece for outside of a consignment shop or even online. This way your have pricing integrity! I also do not haggle or put items on sale often.
Your Lowest Price should NEVER EVER be lower than the hourly earning your deserve!
EVERY PIECE HAS A BUYER: If you need to get rid of it for the space see if you can find a charity you can donate to that will promote your business. Like a local school or club auction. You need to hold steady with prices and know what your worth and accept nothing less!
Donating to a charity is “marketing” and part of doing business, document it as such. It’s not always ideal but if you hold yourself to a higher standard others will to. It helps a good cause, creates buzz about your business and keeps your pricing structure intact, holding together with integrity.
