Since my post on virtual assistant rates continues to be discovered and enjoyed almost two months after I first published it, I thought perhaps it was time for another post on pricing for service related businesses. Yes, that includes virtual assistants.
And since we already tackled the issue of not charging enough, let’s move on to the first major complaint I get when I tell people they need to raise prices.
“It will keep me from getting clients.”
But that’s just not true.
Think about it. How much does their mechanic charge per hour? How much do they spend eating out per month? People will pay for what they want or what they need.
It’s not your price that keeps them from working with you.
