As consumers, we expect to see prices increase over time in line with inflation, but as business owners, we frequently hesitate to put our own prices up as and when we should.
But price increases aren’t optional; they’re a business-critical imperative that you simply can’t afford to ignore. The costs associated with the service or product you sell – staff, materials and all your other overheads are constantly increasing.
So do you implement regular price increases in your business to protect your margins?
It’s an area many business owners feel uncomfortable about, preferring to leave prices where they are, rather than – as they see it – risk disturbing client relationships. “I can’t increase prices because I may lose a client – perhaps even ALL of them” is often the fear that limits action.
At our upcoming workshop ‘How to Successfully Manage a Price Increase’, multiple award-winning business coach and sales and marketing expert Ellis Bardsley will explain why all businesses need to have a price increase strategy in place, and why every business owner needs to understand how to manage the process.
Come along to hear Ellis explain why it is that business owners frequently find themselves struggling with the concept of putting up their prices, and listen to his simple, easy to follow process that will enable you to prepare and implement the price increase your business needs.
